I was stunned by the quote I received to put the boat on a barge from Seattle to Anchorage ~ $5,300. That's many years worth of fuel. There is no availability on the ferry system. It would be cheaper to put my truck on the ferry, have shipped to Bellingham, grab the boat and trailer and drive up. A quick-n-dirty calculation would be less than half the costs. Of course its 2,300 miles of driving with unforeseen challenges.
Any other options?????? I could bring the boat up the inside passage to say Homer, but would still need to get the trailer up. That would certainly be the most enjoyable trip.
