RE: The Northwest Passage

I read some where were a person has done the passage by Kayak/rowing several time.* He basically lives of the land and sea.* The is a sister ship of the Eagle in BC Canada that basically lives off the sea land, but he being doing that for years. It would take somebody that could live off the land/sea or had a very capable boat. *There are not many harbors/towns to get food/fuel so you are pretty much on your own.**

When Paul Allen had is first little boat 125 ft, which he gave to his sister.* It used to pull into our marina on LakeUnion for Seafair, so we got to meet the crew and even Paul.* You could tell when they where going to leave the dock as the limousines would start pulling up.* *Paul also owns another yacht, I believe the Tatoosh, 303+?* How would you like to be Paul Allen on the Octopus, 414 to be over shadowed by the Eclipse 557? Paul and the owner of Oracle software had a battle when building their boat as to which is bigger/longest. *Rising Sun 454 because he added an extended deck, but he did not take procession of it as he heard a bigger boat was being made.* Anyway since both live in the Seattle area it hit the social gossip.
