    I think the sea monster in front of it is more interesting.

    This stands a yew yards behind the serpent. These are guerrilla art installed in the dark of night in that the breakwater is technically off limits. But most around here know who did them and they are well liked.

    You have a nice front yard!
    There is nothing quite as permanent as a good temporary repair.

    Surprised she’s anchored out. Can’t Shilshole or Elliott Bay marinas absorb a sailboat that size? It was blowing up to 30k from the south an hour or so ago.

    Yes.

    Maybe Shilshole was full up?

    And I'm not sure that Shilshole Bay is a legal anchorage (though there's a mooring buoy for barges there - the sea lions like it a lot)

    Nice classic lines. Man that's a lot of spreaders. Any clue on the year she was built, and the hull material?

    2001, aluminum.

    I'm guessing that with more than 7,000 gallons of fuel aboard, her big Cat diesel logs more hours than the sails.

    Here she is when new, back n 2001.

    I was also surprised she anchored out, that’s pretty exposed. The basin at the south end of the marina was originally designated an anchorage of refuge, but it is much smaller since they extended the docks. The commercial fish buyers still anchor there during the season, but no one else seems to anchor there.

    Catalina is a very pretty boat, very low and sleek compared to other sailboats that size. She is now inside the locks at the mega yacht marina on Commodore Way.

    Actually that is the back yard. The street is on the other side.
