LOL, no, not even close.* But, while at Margaritaville I did see a Com-Pac 23 anchored off the beach.* The Com-Pac 23 was my previous, sail, boat.* I've heard of people sailing them to the Bahamas.* I'm just amazed at the brass of folks who will take a tiny boat like that out into the open ocean.

I'm surprised we haven't heard from FF commenting on the gray canister the man in the wind section is utilizing.* I'm sure there are other folks here that recognize it.

Your idea of a perfect Anchorage?

* My son and I anchored out at Jones Island in the San Juans for a couple of days.
The first evening that we were there, a bunch of folks got together for a big cook out on shore.** While things were getting readied for the feast some guys were already sitting around the fire telling stories (hmmm, drinking, boating, and stories, my kind of crowd).
** Anyway, this one guy was telling how he had caught a couple of really nice fish that day* (salmon, I think) and he was keeping them on ice on his boat.* A few minutes later we hear this ruckus going on out where the boats were moored .We all go running down to the water where we see a couple of otters in the back of this guys boat (the one with the fish story) and they are tearing it apart. The guy jumps in his dinghy and rows like a madman out to his boat cursing and screaming at the critters the whole time.* I mean this guy could have made an Olympic sculling team. Well, the otters hear him coming and just before he gets to the boat they dive overboard, each with a big fat fish in their jaws.
He climbs on his boat and you could have heard him on the next island yell*
"son of a b itch".
* So he quietly rows back to shore and says he's sorry but he now he doesn't have anything to contribute to the dinner.*We said it was ok,*he earned his dinner with the entertainment, and was welcome to join in.
* We hiked to the other side of the island and had some beautiful views.****** KJ*****

RE: Your idea of a perfect Anchorage?

Good Day Eric, The location that Pic. Was taken is 52 17,231' N 127 59,561' W . It is a shallow bay with a good mud bottom. This place holds lots of history. Cunningham Island has Return Channel to the North, Johnson Channel to the East, Gunboat Passage to the South,and Troup Passage to the West. This is one of the bays I will never become tired of returning to. Thank You for Your interest. PJ.

Killick,
Your picture is STUNNING. As far as I'm concerned you get the prize for best anchorage picture. I just wish I could click it and make it full screen on my 27" i-Mac. Rich colors w the perfect amount of contrast. I also regret that I never made it to Chatterbox Falls when we were down south. I always wanted to go in the winter. Can you edit and re-post it as a clickable thumbnail? I wonder if that would work anyway.
Thanks - you are both too kind!* The camera did all the magic...all I did was point & click.* Digital SLR's are amazing.* Chatterbox Falls is best viewed in the spring with the run-off in full flow...thie was taken in early May and already the falls had started to moderate.

I'll try to repost a link to the full format pic - it is uploaded to photobucket.* If it doesn't work, I'd be happy to email it to anyone who wants it.* It makes a great wallpaper!* ps....it's just under 5mb.* Thanks, Alisa

Your idea of a perfect Anchorage?

Pac J,The one place I recognize is Gunboat Passage. That's great * *...I just wanted to know the general area and that nails it. Just SW of Shearwater there's a most beautiful maize of islands, channels and passageways like the west side of Hunter Is. Every time I run the IP I say I'm going to cruise and take my time doing it someday but I never do it. Always in a hurry to get south and beat the weather in the fall or hurry up and get to Alaska.


DR,
Don't need an SLR. I take all the pics you've seen on TF w a pocket sized camera.

Thanks for the beautiful photo of the anchorage on the east side of the north entrance to Deer Passage/Troup Passage.*
That area around New Bella Bella/Shearwater has some really nice anchorages.*
*
My post on Page 3 (Jan 11) of this thread, was of Beales Bay (named on new chart 3939), just off Gunboat Passage on the north side, taken last summer.*
I think you may get a favourable comment from Sea Horse II, who seems to think the places we chuck the anchor over are o.k.
*
That IS a nice looking boat you have there.*

RE: Your idea of a perfect Anchorage?

Terrebonne Bay, South of Houma, LA, right*next to an oil structure pilings.*As soon as it gets dark put out the lights and catch a mess of Speckled Trout,*Redfish, and maybe a Flounder or two.*
See the drilling rig in the background, the fishing here has always been great and still is after the oil spill.

RE: Your idea of a perfect Anchorage?

Steve,
Wonderful picture. I like the way you used the pilings/dolphin to make good composition and visual depth.

Old Salt,
Of course it's a nice looking boat***** ....it's just like yours.* Ha ha
Sounds like Pac J has the wander lust like you. I expect some really good stuff form him down the channel here on TF.
