Well...right after all the word wizards figure out what a trawler is...you can compare male appendages to figure out what remote means.

I like a beautiful secluded anchorage all to myself. Not sure I need the "Boldly go where no man has gone before" challenge. Guess I temper my thirst for adventure with late middle age.

No secluded coves on the river but plenty of sloughs, sandbars and islands to throw out a anchor. I like to anchor in areas where I can see the channel and watch the tows go by or shallows area near sandbars to wade around and swim. Some of the sandbars will have dozens boats around them on weekends others will be deserted. In the sloughs the occasional fishermen is about all you ever see, to find these places you need 3 things. #1 is local knowledge, everyone knows the popular sandbars. #2 paper charts for finding areas that are possible to get in with a large boat. #3 is a small boat with a good depth finder to scout it out before taking the cruiser in, I've ruined a lot of props on the 17' cc going places I shouldn't of and none on the 38'.

That's not really true and I suspect you know that. If I can't see or hear any boats or vehicles and can't see any structures or towers, that's "remote" enough for me.

Ted's post is one of those where I think "That is exactly how I think about it but could not articulate"

I prefer to anchor in spots where we are secluded, but I don't need remote. I even like our Yacht Club outstations in the winter when we are often the only boat at the dock. If another boat is at the dock when we arrive, I am just as apt to go anchor out and forgo the shore power in exchange for quiet and privacy.

A treat for me is to meet other boaters who share a lot of the same boating info that I can relate too.

So if it be at a dock, a bar, a yacht club, or even a distant but not necessarily remote anchorage...so be it.

I do like anchorages to myself sometimes...but as long as the other boats are far enough away that they or I can run gensets or play music or sit in the cockpit and whoop it up...then that's OK with me to.

Having another boat in an anchorage just might be a lifesaver at some point...as long as there is harmony...it doesn't have to be some "dreamlike" existence.

Same here. We met folks on a cruise a couple years ago and hop scotched them up the coast.

Sometimes we'll meet people at a marina who have a vehicle and catch a ride to the grocery store or marine store.

LOL! Sometimes when there are no boats in that little cove you just discovered, there's a darn good reason!

I have found a couple near perfect anchorages in a local fishing slough that allow me to have the place to myself. No boat traffic, no homes in the area, no train or highway noises...an occasional Air Force transport or tanker into Travis AFB....plenty of nature.

Mistake Island. Sounds like what usually happens to me when I anchor. 😄

Remote for us is being anchored for two or three days and never seeing another boat or any sign of human habitation. Best ones so far were at the top end of Kitkatla Inlet on Porcher Island, and the southernmost basin in Betteridge Inlet on Campania Island.

Wifey B: Sounds a lot like desolate. Just teasing. It's whatever one enjoys. I'd be fine in that level of remoteness for about 24 hours.

Here in Alaska we rarely will stay in an anchorage where another boat is. There are just so many georgous places to set the hook for the night and so few other boaters that we almost never have to share.

Our area is so remote that google earth doesn't even have close up imagery.

Greetings,
Mr. ASD. "Is there really any other set of criteria other than western BC and Alaska!!" I can appreciate the beauty of the area but I strongly suspect western BC and Alaska are NOT the center of everyone's the boating universe. Scandinavia, Northeastern Canada, Australia and New Zealand to name but a few, ALL have comparable cruising grounds I'm quite sure.

Remote

Pretty Girl cove eating oysters, cold lake Alberta, gulf islands, desolation sound, west coast Vancouver Island, Pitt lake, gulf island.

For me this is freedom. Lots of stuff we can't do, but a trawler.? Smell the roses., enjoy your freedom that scenes of remote, disconnect.

IMO. Kinda

Well RT there are very beautiful places throughout the world and some maybe remote, but BC and Alaska, the pearl gem of remote cruising!

Lot's of remote anchorages in the Bahamas. And you can actually swim there and catch a fish that pulls harder than a sodden tube sock. Reefs and palm trees are good things.

Also, some really nice remote areas in the big bend and eastern panhandle of Florida.

Second the opinion on the 10,000 islands as well.
