Yes, this is quite exciting! Thursday, I made the drive from Vancouver to Bothell and then to Bellingham and back for my navigational arch. I also traded my longshaft outboard for a shortshaft. I will get some pics up once I get the arch mounted.
That's one thing we will need to make sure of, to stay around the channel. The Columbia can get shallow in some places.
Anywho, the wife, two girls and I are at Disneyland... I did that drive on Thurs... so we could get down here on Friday...
