Re: Bandwagon, Big Food, Hornpipe & Rowan do Barkley Sound
This thread is in danger of completely heading south here. . .don't you have your very own thread to pee in, MacDonald?
So here's some boat porn starring my own favorite centerfold to try to get us back on track. One reef in the fore, two empty kegs in the beer tender for floation, headed NNE across Admiralty Inlet where the majority of the water (and the large ship traffic) for the entire rest of Puget Sound flows in and out with currents reaching as high as six knots off of Point Wilson. Now if I'd done that in a freaking motor boat, would there be any particular drama or interest at all? Having also done this crossing in a motor boat, I can assure you that there was none. None whatsoever. It was fricking boring. But in Rowan it was kickass and sublime.
Amphibious Macroplankton Oughtredia doublendus
Mostly found frequenting the littoral and estuarine zones in the southern half of the Salish Sea, though sightings have been recorded both north and south of this area, and occasionally, but rarely, inland, in freshwater environments. This species lives on micro-brewed beer and dutch-oven biscuits,and displays brightly colored nylon and gore-tex plumage during the rainy season. Approach with caution!
