Lets see how good we are at guessing different cruising areas.

Don't know the answer but I can tell you which one*it*isn't.

Lack of*vertical*clearance rules out one of them.

That hill/mountain on the horizon I think rules out Dismal Swamp and Cape Cod.... so I vote Champlain -- there must be some hills up there, right?

Okay, it's only fair that PNW boaters get the same opportunity. So here are fourteen photos I've taken on cruises over the past three years. Some bodies of water or locations should be pretty easy for people who've cruised these waters to identify, some maybe not so much.* I will tell you that they were all taken north of Bellingham and south of Port Hardy on Vancouver Island.* Whoever gets the most correct will get a free two week cruise on our new Fleming 55 when we get it from Hustler.

I think*the NE one*was a lot easier. Most people got it. And the others figured out by process of elimination.

It is the Champlain Canal.

Marin's is pretty hard to answer.****But at least you will win a trip.* Also the images are quite beautiful.*

Don't think I could figure it out even if the prize was a 2011* 75'* Flemming.*

RE: What waterway is This?

When I lived in Hawaii and was flying to different islands almost every weekend for some eight or nine years, I think a person could show me a photograph of any piece of coastline from any island and I could identify it. But even though we've flown up and down the Inside Passage many times and boated some of the more popular areas between Bellingham and Port McNeil, I suspect I could not identify the majority of photos people showed me of the coastline or bodies of water, partly because there's so much of it and partly because unless you are very familiar with a particular piece of terrain, it's hard to distinguish between one tree-covered island and another one. I've tried to use photos that had some distinguishing visual elements that people can key on, although there is one that, frankly, could be anywhere (7).

Don't have any charts, so some references will be vague...2) Southern tip of San Juan Island
3) Squirrel Cove
4) Chrome Island lighthouse
5) Channel between Hornby & Denman Islands
7) Channel just south of Refuge Cove
8) Grace Harbour
12) Telegraph Cove
13) Georgia Strait looking west at Vancouver Island
14) Maple Bay


(Hopefully that will at least warrant a ride in the dinghy towed behind the Fleming!)

You got five correct.* Actually maybe six.* I suspect you know what bay 9 is but you have the name wrong.

Ganges & Entrance Island are pretty easy.* As to the rest, well, there's a lot of seascape to choose from!* The coolest thing about the pics are that a friends boat (the Terry Wayne) is in number 14 - darned if I know where they were at the time though.* Great shots!

Edit......seems it's a whole lot easier to recognize boats than it is places!* I stand corrected and am looking forward to the results!* Could have sworn that that was Entrance Isl.

Entrance Island is not one of the photos.* Neither is the Strait of Georgia, San Juan Island, Peavine Pass, Parks Bay, Friday Harbor, or Maple Bay.

Eric is right about 14, its Garden Bay, Pender Harbour, and the 1912 boat of a good friend shows at the RVYC dock, extreme left.

Don: Alike? In the eye of the beholder.
Bland? never!

You obviously missed the "no" on the end.* As a matter of fact I am trying to put together a trip out there to rent a car at Seattle and take the ferry stystem up to Canada then drive back to the airport.* Any suggestions?* I mean about the trip.
