An unusually fierce late-summer thunderstorm soaked the area, gave RIPTIDE a fresh-water washdown, and moved on to the northeast. Hail and nearby lightning strikes made it an interesting storm! cliffmass.blogspot.com/2016/09/first-major-convergence-zo... RIPTIDE was built in 1927 by Frank E and William J Schertzer. They owned Schertzer Brothers Boat and Machine Company, which was then located at 1115 Northlake Avenue on the north end of Lake Union, just west of the foot of Stone Way in Seattle. RIPTIDE is 47 feet 1-inch long with a beam of 11 feet 10-inches and a draft of four feet. She is planked in port orford cedar riveted to white oak frames over an apitong backbone with western red cedar houses. She displaces about 10 tons, relatively light for a boat this size. RIPTIDE is a Coast Guard documented vessel. She carries documentation number 226242 carved into the interior face of both port and starboard bilge stringers. RIPTIDE is powered by remanufactured Cummins B210 5.9 liter turbo-charged diesel of 210hp. While her top speed is over 14 knots at 2400 rpm, her cruising speed is a much more sedate 9 knots at 1500 rpm. She carries 300 gallons of diesel fuel. She was overhauled by the Port Townsend Shipwright's Co-Op in Port Townsend WA between April 8th and September 16th, 2015. RIPTIDE was completely recaulked by John Zimmer of Palouse Boatworks, and painted and varnished by Diane Salguero of Salguero Marine Services. RIPTIDE's hailing port is Port Ludlow WA. She is usually moored in Port Madison, on Bainbridge Island, WA, her long-time home for nearly 70 years.
