RE: A long way home
you said, "I am in Kethcikan, and keep my boat at Air Marine.*"
You would be in Refuge Cove, a little north of town, IIRC.* I met a nice couple in "Formula Won", at Nagasay Cove in the Maurelles, NW of Craig, when I was in Southeast a couple of years ago.* They kept their boat at Air Marine, I believe.
Do you know Jim and Ethel Connors, and/or "Formula One", and do you know if they are still in Refuge Cove?
