Living around the Puget Sound, which is currently under consideration for a name change to the Salish Sea, boats, sailing ships, barges, cargo ships and more are plentiful. Marinas are everywhere though I suspect if you were looking for berth rental, you might argue the point. We are big on boating in the Northwest inland waterways. And though I'm not a boater, I do love catching sight of sail boats, small and large, with billowed sails making way. Any which way as they bob, dance and run; their success dependent on the marriage of the sail makers sails, sailor's skills and nature's whim. A treasure to see.
In honesty, my favorite part of living in the land of boats, ships and all is seeing them in stillness. Of this I never tire. Sails folded, long water shadows cast. There is peace in still water and it's mirrored reflections.
