OVERNIGHT AT ANCHORAGE:
For those without a boat or have not been out on one and always wondered what it is like to live aboard, the option of "Overnight at Anchorage" is a great way to get a feel for what it is like to live-aboard a comfortable vessel that has every amenity of a home.
This trip is a unique, rare, experience.
An over night trip to "Andrews Bay", on Lake Washington.
Locations other than Andrews Cove are possible, prices may vary to accommodate time and vessel usage cost.
Gently swing around the anchor to the ever changing wooded scene in Andrews cove.
Summertime weekends expect a large gathering of boats, floats, and a lot of people having fun in the sun.
It can get a bit nosey during these times but due to new noise ordenance laws the mix of loud muisc has gotten more under control thanks to the harbor Patrol.
To avoid these fun events that might bring to much fun for some,
mid week is a perfect time, where we find from no one else, to very small quiet groups of friendly boat campers.
So forget for a while, Relax, sleep, read, hike, swim or:
Lay in the sun on the large floating water mat.
2 kayaks will be available,
A row boat to get to shore if you like.
Take the row boat to shore and have a 2.5 mile walk around Seward Park wooded peninsula.
The wooded park which is a very scenic has picnic tables BBQ pits.
Its the best!
Where life's pressures take a rest.
About the Motor Vessel Patriot:
The M.V. Patriot is actually a mini-ship, only 12 built in 1972 and 1000's copied after the word got around about how versatile and comfortable the originals are.
The M.V. Patriot is a 1972 Grand Banks Alaskan Pilothouse Trawler built in Hong Kong by American Marine.
The M.V. Patriot has every amenity and comfort of an apartment or a house.
She is a long range cruiser heavily built for the open blue water of the oceans.
A wooden vessel made in Hong Kong during a time the world's best woods and craftsmanship were found. These vessels are works of arts, graced with beautiful lines
The M.V. Patriot has the capability of staying out for months, She carries 800 gallons of water, a full apartment size galley, 3 state rooms with extremely comfortable beds, 2 heads , 2 showers.
A professionally built queen plus bed is even found outside on the extra large up-sweeping tall bow.
The Bow-bed is under a water resistant cover that will keep you warm and dry even if it sprinkles.
Getting there, is a whole lot of fun,
So much that you dont want to arrive yet.
If you like, I will share the Skipper's chair,
Taking the large wooden pilots wheel having a go at being Skipper.
I will teach some basic lessons in, vessel handling, learning how to spin 360deg without creeping forward or backwards, safe anchoring skills, how ot make sure your boat will withstand 60+ knots winds and some navigation.
Simply sit on the bow bed, aft sunroom or top deck and enjoy the adventure.
There will be a dinghy for you to row a shore with.
You'll find a 300 acre wooded park with a 2.4 mile trail that follows the water's edge around the Seward park peninsula.
There will be a Huge water mat to climb and roll around on
and two Lake Kayaks to paddle.
Check out all the images, most are of Andrews Bay located in Lake Washington.
Eagles can be seen at times.
Owls that stay in hiding, however most nights call to each other.
Do you work at home? using the internet?,
Why not work at home while anchoring out in a lovely cove.
Trip is conditional to the elements for which depends mostly on my guests, Myself I love all the PNW brings us and will go in all weather conditions.
After all, she is an ocean going vessel warm and dry inside.
Boat camping in the cove is a laid back experience so be prepared to go limp.
Getting to our anchorage:
Includes total of 4-6 hour ride, 2-3 hours there and 2-3 hours back, and as many nights as you like, most of the time one grows easily into two, and three is just right but four is better.
Mid Week proves to be best for providing an experience that finds the cove much more secluded peaceful and quiet then weekends.
if it is a get away you are looking for this is simply an experience that will last beyond your memories.
Weekends on warm/hot sunny days bring the sun/water loving boaters out, boaters and boats of all kinds.
The bay is large and will accommodate 100 boats on these hot sunny days.
If you do not mind joining the music laughter and fun weeks will provide plenty of this.
If it is a quiet cove mid weeks will be you favorite,
Lunches and dinners and clean up can be a group effort.
You are welcome and urged to plan and bring your favorite meals,
If food is provided there will be an extra charge to help cover expenses.
Mornings, our guests enjoy sleep!, coffee.
I will provide the breakfast, with hot or cold cereal, fruits and nuts.
There is a large 32 inch smart TV for watching TV, Netflix, dvd's or you might like to use the computer station for you to use on a special table built so all the lake spreads out before you as you work.
You will have a choice of four sleeping areas: the captain's quarters has a queen bed with adjoining private full bath, with tub, shower, basin and head (toilet.)
two bunk rooms a couch or the out door queen bed on the bow for star watching.

ABOUT THE SKIPPER,
I am Tom G. Whipple, Owner/Skipper and Slave-Master to The M.V. Patriot, :)
I have lived aboard a boat for 18 years. The M.V. Patriot 4 of them where I have spent many hours examining from bow to stern, parts,pieces and systems,continuing to improve the improved, keeping this lovely vessel more alive happy, healthy and comfortable then as when she came to me.
My first boat 30 years ago, was a whitewater and sea-kayak spending many years paddling the Pacific Northwest, North, through to the West Coast of Vancouver Island, specifically, The Broken Group, remote Ocean exposed Islands of Barkley Sound. Loving, learning all things marine, and Saltwater born.
Spending most of the time in The Great Pacific Northwest. Waters where one pays attention, learns about currents, wind affects, weather and all the sea life.
On one occasion I found myself in Barkley Sound leaning steeply, tipping from my sea kayak in shallow shore water hand bracing on the bottom to prevent tipping over, where I had seen a very small green yellow eel type of fish. As I watched him hide under a rock I wiggled my finger which started a game of chase the finger back and forth lasting about ten minutes until I could not feel my hand any longer, submitting to the stronger species of one inch long, I resumed my upright position and watched my little friend look and look for his new friend the finger.
Paddling off I could not help but to feel a bit of a loss the newly made friendship.
That night as I drifted off to sleep, inside my tent and warm sleeping bag, that little eel-fish was my last thought of the night
These many experiences of "Life of the Salt" and just as many or more of 17 years "Experiences of a live-aboard" will at some time find there way into a Book "living-aboard". During your stay we can share some of these stories with you or as I say give you as much privacy as you would like, by being on errands or working on computer in the upper Pilot house. From Before those times, I spent 25 years at Mt Baker ski area.
The 1st 3 years as a ski patrol (free skiing) then placed a 20 foot trailer in the area, finishing the rest of the 22+- years as a mogul skier, selling skis, Summer filled the needs of the lack of snow by riding 50 mile enduro dirt bike events staged by evil sponsors creating the nastiest of trails they could in the dense woods, then sat and laughed as we just about had to swim through the mud pit.
When time allowed I was found recovering, working as a product development design drafter for the wonderful Boeing Co.
Thank you Boeing, Iam forever grateful for the tolerance you displayed. :) lol
Years have gone past finding myself all settled down not wanting to induce anymore damage, soreness or pain to my body, just wanting to live life in the company of nature's peace and beauty from aboard a boat with others that would like to experience or already have, listening to the music created, water dancing around all objects in its way, enjoying the gentle motion This is life that people dream of experiencing.
I most heartily welcome you into my home to enjoy,
I trust, I have satisfied airbnbs request to "describe yourself"
So, let's get back to discussing your! stay, aboard and about the Wonderful Classic 1972 ,55 foot, Grand Banks, Alaskan, The well know, M.V.Patriot.
Your Skipper, friend and Host, Tom G. Whipple.
