    The fairway and around most of the boats on Q south were iced up this morning when I got there. Mostly gone by 3:00pm but suspect it will return tonight. Hope you have heaters handy.

    ‘Tis the season in Everett when the cold Canadian winds freeze our waters. It is a magical time when walking down the dock brings a hint of danger. When boarding the boat the first task is to fire up the Heater. Ice means no boat movement.

    Snohomish River empties out at the marina. Fresh water is on top of salt water and freezes. Are you saying there’s enough ice to prevent boat movement?

    Definitely got the heater going on our boat at Lake Union. 30 degrees now in Redmond. I'll heading up to Everett late March staying for the weekend for a bit of whale watching. Hope the ice is fluid by then, guys!!! :)

    Brrr! Will check on the boat this weekend. Likely okay with three driers and a space heater going. Hope to spend some time on the water during the Christmas holidays. Always a special time to be out. We'll see.

    I think we will be soon be blocked in for a few days due to dredging. When I left at 2 the dredge was off the end of Q dock and looked like it was headed for lumbardies

    No guarantees. Never seen an iceberg this far south, but you just never know. The've been known to sink boats from time to time.:poke:

    @Terry Cox you are further north than us so you would see them first.

    How long is the dredging supposed to be blocking the waterway.

    In our river the dredging season is limited to November and December.
