Cape Spencer, where the inland waters of Southeast meet the North Pacific. When it was decided to automate all Alaskan lighthouses, this was first on the list:

Elfin Cove, last chance for fuel and shelter. Diesel about a dollar more than elsewhere in Southeast:

Cape St. Elias, on Kayak Island. This would have been my first choice of lighthouses to de-man:

Here's found image (i.e. not mine) which better conveys the true appearance of Cape St Elias that pinnacle is nearly 500 feet tall:

Wow, love me some mountains! In Sep my hiking partner and I head out to the Sierra Nevada's in CA to complete the John Muir Trail which we started last fall. Had to pull off last Sep after about 70 miles due to illness back home - all is well now. About 135 miles and 39,000 ft of elevation gain to go - finish on top of Mt Whitney - at 14,585, the highest in lower 48 - then we have to hike 10 more miles to get down. At 63 and 65 we figured we better do this hike sooner than later . Then it will be time to do the Great Loop!

Tom.....I have this secret spot on the boat where I keep a supply of AA specially designated for you and Crusty. I think it's aging nicely. Since you're coming up to AK next year and John's going south to Mexico , you can drink his!

I was very happy to find that for the first meal with Un-Cruise they offered AA. I love the stuff and enjoyed a couple. I was thinking of Crusty and Tom at the time.

It's a small trawlerforum.

I sat down for a beverage with my next crew, a former colleague from U. of Alaska, at the Longliner here in Sitka and Ken, he of Hatt Trick, was at the next table! We agreed to meet today, but missed. I'm off tomorrow, probably a short jaunt to Kruzof/Mt. Edgecumbe to shake down the new crew. Then Peril Strait to Appleton Cove, Baranof Springs, Tracy Arm and eventually Juneau on the 1st for another crew change.

And Contact with Bill was accomplished! Finally met the 'Man'. Lunch with he, Ken, and Chrystal, of 'Hat Trick' (DAMN, I am of poor name retention here). As always, pressing the flesh of fellow Trawler Forum members is a highlight Fair seas and safe travels to both of the boats.

Thanks for the hospitality, the luncheon, and Sea-duction's beer.

It looks like Ken and I will be heading out as a loose formation on Thursday morning for Prince Rupert.
