Thumbs up ASD 2019 Alaska Cruise

Hey Everyone,

ASD is in final preparations to leave the winter dock and start cruising to B.C. and SE Alaska. Our plan departure is May 1st weather and tides permitting. I will try and share our travels with a few stories and pictures.

We do have a "SPOT" and this is the weblink to the Share Page. The page updates every 10 minutes.

https://share.findmespot.com/shared/...YlZ6LsSd7evQYI

NOTE: If you click on the shared page now it will be currently be blank until we start our travels next Wednesday. Please save this link to your computer and/or device.

The blog and MMSI is also below in the signature page.

Thanks for following. If you have any questions please let us know.

Tom and Kay

Just a heads up. Be aware of the new fishing regs in BC. I'm sure the DFO will be checking. Mainly because no one is out fishing...

Wait for updated information for when you get there. Easiest way is to use this app:

iphones - https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/fish...7514?ls=1&mt=8

android - https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ingbcapp&hl=en

DFO site can be searched also starting here for areas: BC sport fishing guide

North of the island wasn't as affected by these recent regulations being that they were put in place to protect Fraser River stock. Details are still being worked out and made available online so be sure to check immediately prior to fishing.

Enjoy!

Right now I think it is only to protect the southern portion for the Fraser River Chinook population, I have seen nothing further north of this diagram as yet........

Good Weather Window

Have a wonderful time and let's see lots of photos.


Fair winds, blue skies and calm seas, my friend.

Well I am jealous & wish I was going with you.

So beautiful up there.

Time your crossing of the swift waters that occur with the tide changes & you will be fine.

Have fun & enjoy & of course write a few posts here so we can follow your progress.

Good Luck.

I see a gale warning for south end of outside Vancouver Island waters forecast for Saturday. With your boat you should beat it, love those 3208 twins with a fast cruise possible. Hope to see you. Safe travels.

Tom, any chance you'll swing by Bellingham on the way up? I'd buy you a beer. You know the brand!
