Getting ready to set sail:

Charts in order, Nobeltec set up, provisions on board, shrimp and crab traps ready to set, fishing license (Jim’s is free now) in pockets, waiting for the last minute to install masthead insturments (to date eagle damage is over $$1,500.00) knitting supplies accumulated, books and magazines loaded, excitement building.

Our intended route: (all destinations will be weather driven)
Tenakee Springs, Hoonah, round Cape Spence-no sooner than June 1, Graves Harbor, Lituya Bay, Yakutat, Icy Bay, Cordova, Prince William Sound, Seward, Kenai Fjords, Afognak Island, Kodiak Island, with lots of stops in between.

More great adventures ahead.

Count Down to Setting Sail

Jim has been working on Cape St. James getting her ready to untie the lines the end of April and head north. Our plan is to slowly make our way to Cape Spencer, then into Prince William Sound and west to Kodiak Island, with lots of stops to enjoy the scenery on the way, not to mention the fishing and shrimping.

We are both excited to cover new ground and experience more of the Alaskan wilderness.

Herring Time

I almost missed the entire season of herring roe while helping my mom recover from an illness. The link below will show photos from the local newspaper. Life in Sitka comes alive this time of year. It is all very exciting. 2011 Sitka Sound sac roe herring fishery gallery ttp:// On another note Jim has been very busy getting the boat ready to set sail. We are heading north the final destination Kodiak Island.
