Cruising North Coast of British Columbia
« on: May 07, 2023, 02:35:06 PM »
Any of you planning a trip up the Inside Passage might find this article of some interest.  A lot of it is pretty basic with a barely disguised marketing objective.  On the other hand, there are some very good points to keep in mind, especially if you've never gone boating in this sort of environment before.  I recommend at least a quick glance for anyone heading north this summer.

Will add that to my reading list. I have hopes- not yet plans, though I'll have the time off to do it- of cruising up that way Summer of 2024. There are some great threads on the c-brats.com (C-Dory) forums, including a family with young kids who did Edmonds, WA to Juneau, AK on a 22' C-Dory (http://www.c-brats.com/viewtopic.php?t=30901, forum registration may be required) which has me inspired to refit my widebody for that trip.

I've not read the article, but have made the run between Sitka and Seattle 13 times (13 legs, not round trips) in my own commercial fishing vessel or helping others run theirs.  Happy to answer any q's that pertain when I can.

Cheers,

Chris
