When I look at the 10 day forcast for Anchorage, Whittier, or Valdez it always seems to show cloudy with a 60% chance of rain. Is the weather really always that bad? Since I am in Fairbanks, it takes some advance planning to set up a trip. I'd hate to tow the boat 8+ hours just to sit in the rain and overcast. I see all these wonderful pictures of sunny days and calm clear water. I take it that those are the exception and not the rule?
