Hi everyone,

My wife and I are new owners of a 40' TriCabin, and we're also fairly new boaters. 

We need to move our boat up from Fishermen's Terminal to the Port of Everett the 1st week of May for some maintenance work. We're not yet entirely comfortable going solo locking through and cruising up to Everett solo. We are looking for an experienced boater who would be willing to "chaperone" us on that trip. We can do the piloting, we just want someone to look over our shoulders and give us pointers where needed. We're happy to pay $65/hour for the time required. We'll provide the round trip transport from Seattle.

And if you have any suggestions on anyone who might be able to assist us, please let us know.

Chris and Janelle Owens

to, Chris Owens

I'm willing to assist and can probably bring a couple of experienced deck hands with me.  Need to check on the deck hands.  We go through the locks all the time and are familiar with Everett.  We would need a way back from Everett is all.

If the timing works, be happy to help. I have a 38’ Tolly Mariner berthed at Salmon Bay marina.
