Saltwater fun is always in season on Puget Sound. Kayaking, water-skiing, and shellfishing are among the favorite pastimes of a Tacoma couple and their young son who vacation here year-round.
    The family purchased their Hood Canal haven 10 years ago. A mere 11⁄2-hour drive from the city, the 80-acre property is actually quite remote, with the nearest grocery 45 minutes away.
    The owners planned to replace the derelict boathouse, set off from the beach and about a hundred yards from the main cabin.
