Last month I was asked to join crew, well kinda. Don’t confuse me “joining crew” with what our daughter Kirsten does – rowing crew… I took the much easier option! This past week, I had the pleasure to crew for Tanglewood, taking her from Salmon Bay Marine Center up to Delta Marine for a haul out.
Peter Hayden’s plan was to travel thru the locks, “sea trial” around the sound for a few hours and then head up the Duwamish River to Delta. Peter had Steve D’Antonio on board to review some systems and wanted to follow him around. Douglas Cochrane also joined us and had the tough job of putting Tanglewood thru her paces once thru the locks.
Over the years, Alison and I have traveled thru the locks dozens of time. As I have always been at the helm for those transits, it was a unique experience to be the line handler. I enjoyed the day!
