Barker, please don't let Dave's cold, unsympathetic heart get in the way of relinquishing your 7'8 V-Bowls to someone kinder and significantly closer to you. Your move will be stressful enough. Let me know when I can pick up the board.
It won't be regular, or as regular as you like, but you'll wind waves with some excellent days, in the Strait and on the coast. A major adjustment, but with some neat pluses as well. Still some of the most beautiful country I have ever seen not far from Seattle.
