I am in the same boat, so to speak. I have our boat for ten days. I was hoping to make PLI in that time. Do you all see a problem with that? I was thinking a couple long days on the boat to put miles under the keel. What do you all think?

What type of boat?

I think its totally doable- might mean either a couple of long days at the helm, or a slightly lighter wallet due to increased speeds.....

Do you PNW'ers see many smaller boats cruising around the San Juan's and Gulf islands? We were thinking about doing something like this in our boat - a 22' open bow runabout. I know it's not ideal but that's what we've got to work with. We would want to camp for a couple nights than hit a hotel for a night, than camp again.

Appreciate the thoughts

If I were 40 years younger, I would do it in a New York minute. Sounds like a lot of fun!

San Juans in a small boat is very do-able. I don't do much camping so can't help much there. Sucia, Jones, Stuart, etc. are state parks and have places to pitch a tent.

Roche Harbor, Deer Harbor, Fisherman Bay, Rosario, all have hotels associated with or very near the docks.

Friday Harbor has places to stay further up the hill in town but nothing close to the harbor. There used to be a B&B boat in the port but I don't think it is still operating.

I have done it on a 24 ft boat with 7 people. totally doable. Make sure you know where all teh campgrounds are. with a boat that size you will have a lot of options.
