11/24 Port of Everett dock (Edgewater) 3 to 5 feet very milky due to river flooding. Very dark at 60 feet. No crab but I did see a lot of 5 arm starfish that were about dime size (measured arm span) in the shallows in the eel grass bed.

The north end of Redondo was about 25 ft today, maybe more in places. Others reported being able to see the Black Pearl from the carousel boat.

Sund Rock was pretty awesome. I'd guess 30'. Good time to go to the Hood if you can make it. Before the rivers / rain muck it up.
