  • How much boat for Juneau?

    Is a 17ft Whaler with a 75 Johnson enough boat for the waters around Juneau?

    Should be fine. Just watch the weather.

      I have a 22' Alumaweld with a 225hp Mercury outboard and feel confident even when it kicks up a little. With a 17 footer I would, like bhollis said, be a little more careful with the weather and err on the side of caution. With that said, I frequently see guys from Juneau in 16' Lund skiffs out south of Point Retreat as far as Icy Strait, even in 3-4' seas. I don't think I'd do that, but...

      Just play it smart and you'll do fine.

      Good luck,

      Chris
