    Exactly right, it will change approximately 14 more times and probably still be wrong....weather guessers...lmao

    And if you can’t run offshore, might as well stay home. Ain’t no fish anywhere up there until you get out to swift. Fuk it, I’m canceling my leave

    I was there last weekend bottom fishing and had to cruise down to Sekiu to pull the boat out and the tide was at a +2'. 19.5 Glasply w/cuddy cabin. Looks like part of the ramp had sunk down in the sand a good 8" creating a shelf and sudden drop off. Trailer would have bottomed out if I had put the boat on it.

    Newbie says so right below his name. Does not want to get boat wet might ruin the wax job.

    Hey Jones, don't let these filthy savages get to you. Most claimed they never witnessed seas over 10' at CQ/NB a year ago, in a certain post. 10' seas can be challenging, depending on winds and currents. @Elkfins is correct on weather changing...and FAST. If you don't feel comfortable, thinks about it hard.

    This board is a bunch of ass-holes, but we all mourn those that get lost at sea. @Captain Decent will like this.....just be safe guys.....

    Hey, swanny does have a point. If it doesn’t feel right to you don’t go. There have been days long ago I was running my 16’ open bow with a “roll bar” as my buddy called it. Because I found fishing as enjoyable as wakeboarding. I rounded waadah and didn’t make it to koitlah before it was time to turn back. My buddy talked about that morning back at work for years lol

    About 4 pm the water was glass and I went full throttle out to tatoosh and back with some fish for dinner.

    You just don’t know, patience before nonsense

    If the West Entrance is showing 7’ at 12, with winds out of the S or SW, my 15’ Aluminum boat is fine inside. Seen smaller boats than mine too. Just comes down to seamanship.

    This looks fine. I found a forecast I liked. Can’t wait to charge out into the ocean for my first trip in a new boat that has 6 hours on mill pond Puget Sound. What could go wrong🤷‍♂️😂🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️😂😂

    Agreed, for those of you with brand new boats, the best way to break it in and find all the flaws is a maiden voyage in 20+Kt winds and substantial swell. That way you can expose all the weaknesses early and get them out of the way

    For all you newbs reading this that don't know the personalities speaking - DON'T LISTEN TO A DAMN THING THEY SAY! Some of the best seamen on the coast but they'll safely go out in seas you can't until you get some big water experience. The flip side of that coin is that you won't get that experience till you go out on the big water. Be safe - Have fun! ...and always wear your PFD!!

    Many here have had their asses handed to them when testing the south forecasts, yet we too frequently continue to test them 😂😂😂😂
