RE: Your idea of a perfect Anchorage?

Well, If we've gone from anchorages to just plain pics here's some Ketchikan area pics that will blow you're socks off. They are not mine but those of a professional photographer.Marin should like these because of all the little Beavers in the pics.

I expect no complaints.

Pacific Joule, there's some evidence of pretty impressive glacial activity in carving out those waterways....truly beautiful.

*Nomadwilly, Sorry for the other than anchorages photos I posted, I will try to stick to topic better. Here are some that would certainly make my top ten anchorages. Swindle Island at the west end of Higgins Passage , Princess Royal Island Monk Bay, Unnamed bay west coast of Banks Island between Spear Point and Grief Point, Princess Royal Island *Emily Carr Cove. *Safe and Happy Boating PJ.

Hi Eric,

Those Chip Porter photos are fantastic!* He's quite an artist.

Do you know Chip? Would be cool to learn a thing or two from him.

Guess I'd have to spring for some float plane trips to get anything like many of his pics.* Haven't yet done that, but it's looking more and more attractive.* Have you done much flying?* How expensive is it?

RE: Your idea of a perfect Anchorage?

Richard,I've done 2000hrs of ultralight flying and about 200 w hand gliders. I miss it a lot! Can't fly up here w/o a real airplane but they are too expensive. Actually not unless you include the floats but you can't exclude floats up here. I flew in W Wash because there was always farm fields below in case the snowmobile engine quit. They do quit. It's amazing how seldom though. There is a chap here in Thorne Bay w a yellow cub on floats and I could hook you two together if you like but I've never heard of him flying for pay.
