Here are a couple from Princess Louisa just after New Years, and one from earlier this week at Eagle Harbor, Bainbridge Island.

Okay...last ones for a while.

Escape from the southernmost basin in Betteridge Inlet, Campania Island, north coast BC, Canada. Had to leave on the high tide at 3:50 am because an approaching storm would of had us trapped for days. First photo is leaving. Second photo shows the end of the tricky bits. Very tight, twisting, and shallow...thank you Navionoics!!!

EE-FREAKING-GAD that's clear water!!!

No way ever, no how, is the water where I live ever going to get that clear. Looks like a watermaker would come in handy there. Here we just stop and fill water jugs at any one of a gazillion creeks.

I'm old enough to remember inviting family and friends over to dinner and then breaking out the screen and projector to show slides of our three week vacation. No escape, you have to watch them all.

My boat pictures are on the other computer so maybe later.


hint: It helps if you identify the place not just by name, but by state and/or country. You know where it was but some don't.

I'm blown away over the beauty of many of yall's cruising areas. One day I would like to cruise the PNW-- I need a boat on both coasts! (J/K-- I can barely keep up with one boat).

In those rugged, rocky cruising areas are you ever worried about hitting a rock? We don't seem to have rocks here, or at least I haven't found one yet.

I'll be showing my wife your Sea of Cortez photo's. Her brother should be arriving there by sailboat any day now. Winters here are long. You never know what the future may hold...

Lots of rocks, but they don't move around much. And often we can be 100 yards from shore and in 100-300 feet of water. That's not to say there aren't surprises here and there, but most are well charted. When exploring a place with old or less detailed charting, we're pretty careful. And there's floating wood too.

In my small boats, I always carried spare props. I like the Nordic Tug's full keel with protected single prop and rudder.

Some pics from SE Alaska

Sitting in front of my monitor, trying to get motivated, and looking at these is difficult. Nice photos.

Cruising photos

This is why I'm impressed with mountains. Pretty damn flat here!

thank you for the beautiful pictures, nice animals in the pictures.

I took my tug keel little contact with the round rock. looked out onto a very small damage, but the maintenance guy got run deep into the fiber, the fiber came hard against. I was a huge surprise that the keel of which is hollow in the middle, and the fiber thickness of the keel beneath relatively thin.
