Weekend before last, I went out for as Sunset and Night curse. I always enjoyed night operation, it reminds me of my Navy days of standing watch in CIC (Combat Information Center).

Behind, the Sunset was shining on Hat Island, I was cursing to Sandy Point, West of Everett.

There was enough moisture in the air to create a nice Large Rainbow !!

It was full dark, at 10:00pm when I got back to Everett. Night is a Magic Time on the water.

Very cool, I missed the sunset here this weekend, seems like it went right from daylight to dark.

Night boating is a different world. I like it better when there is a moon to give some light but I have been out when there is no moon. Still different and beautiful.

Night boating is a very different animal. last year I skippered a friends boat on the river in the middle of the city. The wheel was at the rear of the flybridge, and when people were on the flybridge after sunset, and a ceiling light on, I struggled viewing through clears, and then the lights of the city, behind the boats on the river. I prefer the Bay which has a forward wheel, and I have opted for no clears.

Cheers
