RE: Participation

Eric:*Earlier in this thread you said, It seems strange to me that knowing I live in SE Alaska ( I put it on my posts for many months ) nobody has asked me anything about " local knowlege ". *.In your Masset to P.R. thread, in a Mar.1 post, you said, We will be driving to Puget Sound in about a month. At that time you will cease to hear from me as I will be away from the little lap top thing. We should leave PS for POW about the 1st of July and take a month or so returning home so by mid August we should be back home in Thorne Bay.In your profile you said, Will be going south in May to finish up and bring the boat home. .*If you are anywhere near your lap top thing, and have the time, could you confirm for me* that the POWI communities of Thorne Bay, Coffman Cove, Naukati, and Hydaburg have Fuel Docks dispensing diesel, which are likely to be open during June-July this year?* If things go as planned I would be back in Ketchikan and heading for Prince Rupert about end of July and would look for you in the vicinity.* Leaving Rupert I have a couple of options which would keep me there for a week or so.* I can post here to keep you informed of my location if you want me to that.* Thanks in advance.* I hope you are pleased with the work on your Willy.*

Eric:

You said no one ever stops in at Thorne Bay.



Look at all the famous names!*

"Stalwyn", the visitor to Southeast, who did stop in at Thorne Bay.

"Susan", who is going to be moved to make room for "Nomadwilly" in his new berth ...*

... and, of course, the "Riptide".

Currently in Craig (July 15) with a couple of days of sight-seeing to do.* Then to Ketchikan around July 24-25, and Prince Rupert/Port Edwards July 28-29.* I will keep a lookout for you on my way South.

RE: Participation

Old Salt, There's very little of Thorne Bay in the picture but I admit you must have been in Thorne Bay. I'm so sorry I wasn't here to recieve you. We left Everett 17 July and were in Smith Sound at the end of the month. At that time you were in Rupert so we must have passed each other at about Bella Bella. Willy has performed very well. She's very slow with a cruising speed of 6.15 knots and a burn rate of .87 gal per hr. We burned 111 gallons over 22 days and ran at 2300 rpm. Spent a day or two at 2000 and 2 or 3 days at 2450 ( it's a 3000 rpm engine ). The boat takes care of itself enough so following seas from the quarter are easily handled wirth the new hydraulic steering. The Comander 30 is a very good boat. One was in the slip next to us a few years ago. The gel coat on his boat was so good he did'nt even use antifouling paint on the bottom! It could be the shiniest boat I've ever seen. As I recall he pressure washed from time to time and that was all. Sorry I'm so casual about my e-mail. If you send me your land line phone # I'll call you. nomadwilly@yahoo.com. Well you're not one in a million, or a thousand but you are one in 500. The first of the group to come to Thorne Bay on my invite.

RE: Participation

Hi Eric:

Thanks for letting me know you made it home O.K.

Nice trip, isn't it?*

We got home to Secret Cove/Halfmoon Bay about 3 hours before you responded to the post with the photo of the "Riptide" !!!

We sung out with a "Nomadwilly" on 16 every once in a while, but since we took the middle route south from Port Edward, we only returned to the IP at Klemtu, New Bella Bella, and then down Fitz Hugh Sound.* I enjoyed my 6 week 1350 nm trip around POWI - quite pleasantly surprised at all the great scenery and first-rate anchorages I found on the east side, and the west side is just special boating all the way.* Got in a little side trip from Port Protection to Kake for fuel and water and back the next day (we both know I really went so I could travel Keku Strait in both directions on back to back days, don't we?), and another side trip from Craig to Nagasay Cove through Launch Passage*and back to Craig, but the rest of the trip was spent following the shoreline of POWI.* I did skip Brownson Bay because it was just gettin' a leetle too rough out there, I overnighted in Nichols Bay and hightailed around Cape Chacon in the very a.m. to Gardner Bay for an o/n before returning to Ketchikan.* My wife flew in to Rupert on July 31 and we spent a month coming home together.

You live in a very special place, Eric.* Beautiful scenery, great boating,*and the people I met were considerate and helpful.* I'll be back.* Here's a little more of Thorne Bay.



OS

I'll get back to you on your suggestions.

RE: Participation

Hi Old Salt, What a cruiser you are. I've ilved here 3 years and I've not gone round the Island. I finally got my boat up here and now I'm down with oil filter problems. What a time you must have had. I'll bet you were glad to get home though .. we were. Many of the places you mentioned I don't know and need to look up. It IS a big Island. You didn't even complain about the rain and this year most of the people who have been here for years are complaining profoundly. Iv'e spent most of my time since Iv'e been home with my outboards. My newly varnished cap rails already have white spots where there were no bungs. Going to Craig tomorow .. prolly eat at the Dockside Cafe. We should prolly take this thread to the Voyager section .. Yes?

RE: Participation

Time permitting, I'd like to get to Craig Alaska next summer. My DeFever has 400 gallons of water capacity. I've no watermaker onboard - intentionally so at this time. As I venture north from Port Hardy I read in Waggoners there are plenty of fill point stops, but for you who have traveled this route is this indeed the case? My 400 gallons can be kept to 20 to 30 gallons/day consumption for me and my wife. We carry drinking water separately and lightly bleach the tanks with each fill for "purification." On PMM a question like this elicits a respone from Baltimore as to what kind of watermaker I should buy and why do I shower?
