The Rock Pile is one of the few places you will cruise that has "U-need-a-diver" signs posted along the way. When you see that, stay in mid channel.

WOW Don,
Either the boat is upside down or the reflection image is clearer than the trees themselves. Could only be more tranquil if the boat was anchored.

Peter,
Mostly because of cloud cover the NW coastal waters are very often calm. Alaska is a land of extremes in many ways.

Eric, we were cruising with a friend's boat. He had a good eye and camera. Being in the TV broadcast business he was very artistic. He. like Marin for Carey, made some great shots for us.

Those were good days. I miss him very much.

Couldn't disagree more! The fact that the boat is moving compliments the stillness of the water. (75% learned..25% intuitive. )

This photo must have been taken shortly after I bought the boat, as the name's not yet on the transom.
