It looks like I will be running my boat up from the Seattle area to Juneau in the spring. Does anyone here want to come along? The catch -- you have to have your own boat. Currently I am planning on running by myself, and I would be interested in running with someone else, or at least being in contact with someone enroute in case one of us has an issue. I plan on leaving around May 8th or 9th, and I need to be in Juneau by May 25th.
My cruise speed will be around 25-30mph in flat seas, and I plan on going fairly quickly through Canada and spending more time fishing and sightseeing in Alaska. Anyone that can offer king or halibut spots feel free to PM me and I promise to keep them a secret. If you have suggestions on places to see, I would be interested in those as well. I have bought about every Inside Passage book there is and have been reading up on the trip. By the way, many of the books are worthless, Case Harris (Can Can in Juneau) recently turned me on to the Exploring series by Don Douglass, which is by far the best in my opinion.
