Setting off this morning to tackle the "Trench" (Grenville Channel). I have dreamed about this for years and know we are doing it. Our plan is WE HAVE NO PLAN!!!! We are having such a great time and meeting great people.

You might like to take a slight detour to Bishop Bay Hotsprings.
I haven't been there since 1992 but it was nice then.

Your blog is a great read. Keep it up!

One word of warning though, as you have posted in a blog available to all, your notes on fishing attrated me with another mis-identified species. You need to read your BC sportfishing guide, both to properly identify the fish you are catching, and the daily and total limits that apply to those fish. If you got your licenses (you do have Canadian Fishing licenses?) online, you will need to bookmark the sportfishing guide for easy reference.

Along those same lines: Make certain you are not fishing in a RCA (Rockfish Conservation Area). There is a lot the area you are traveling through that is closed to bottom fishing, and when it is closed to that they mean ALL fishing. Try to pick up a copy of the regulations in Prince Rupert.

Tom and Kay, I'm really enjoying your blog. It's always nice to 'travel' along with other boaters, enjoying the scenery and the write-ups.

No story here I guess. We were in Shearwater a few days ago and in the anchorage all by our selves when the USCG Cutter Terrapin showed up and plopped his anchor. The next day they pulled up to the dock for fuel and we both left at the same time. He is bigger, so I let them go ahead of us and I got a "Thank you Alaskan Sea-Duction". They called VTS and entered into the system with a destination of Ketch. I am trying to find out if it has jet engines on it if you look real close to the exhaust.....

Really enjoying the blog, keep it coming!

Here are the specs for Marine Protector Class of which the USCG Cutter Terrapin belongs.

Mystery solved Tom, It is a USCG Cutter 'Roundup" The Terrapin is on the USCG dock as we speak. I took our Polsbo Skiff out this day for a harbor cruise and passed the base. There are about 4 or 5 of these cutters there.
These rigs have two turbines in conjunction with two diesels. When they cut those turbines in things happen!!!
Looking forward to meeting your and Kay.

confused

Hi Mike, My response to Tom makes your data confusing. your data makes no refrence to turbines yet my conversations with crew indicate that there are turbines involved. Might it be that there are superchargers of some nature that 'Cut In' at a pre-determined RPM. I am aware that when these rigs charge to flank the exhaust is black for the most part even when approaching flank speed. Impressive even at the stated 25 knots, it does appear to be faster,
Thanks for the data and will follow up next I see one of the boats to speak to somebody.

I am enjoying the trip you are on. Great job on the posting and photos. I will be in Sitka starting the 14th and going to Glacier Bay at end of the month. If you are around the area give me a call then.
