We are recently arrived in Washington after a year in Korea (Air Force). I am going to look at a boat today after being on the hunt for while. We sold our last boat before leaving for Korea, and we are keen to get back on the water but where do we go? Texas was hot and every lake was a potential destination; here in Tacoma I am getting word that it will always be too cold to enjoy any of the water west of the mountains. Will we really have to pack up and head east every weekend to find a raft-up? How far do we have to travel from home to find warm sun and warm water? Chelan? Moses? Banks? What about Riffe and Mayfield south of Olympia, are they too cold or too small?
I'll keep reading, but any recommendations/advice are appreciated!
