Here's a clue. The sample is from the tariff book for TOTE between ANC and Tacoma. Barge from Juneau probably half, or less; but note the disparity in cost reflecting the lack of traffic on the southbound leg. How many bottles of beer in a 40 foot container do you suppose?

Moving this thread and an update.

Finally got the AIS reprogrammed (sort of) and now reads Howdy not Alternative for Beth & Ken Diestler.

We hope to be leaving Anacortes in the next 3 to 5 days.

Moving it as a forum moderator? or what? Leaving for where? logical is North. If that the case, what is the 'wandering schedule' in Southeast that one might keep an eye out to say hello.

Not a moderator just moving it up the chain of New Posts.

Leaving Anacortes in 3 to 5 days heading north.
Only real itinerary I have is to be in Petersburg on or before June 20 and in the Hoonah-Excursion Inlet area around July 1 (and that may change) and to get over to Sitka for a while.

Mostly posted because I got the AIS reprogrammed.

Aaaaa Hoonah, my very favorite ship loading port that I had the pleasure to work many years back. Have you been there?

The Native population of Hoonah are the most attentive, hard working souls one could ask for. Cheerful, happy, just great folk to be around.
Fredrick Sound holds some of the most wonderful fishing, fresh water, salt, you can ask for.
I had 10 years of seasonal ship loading at Hoonah and as you can see, partial to a fault!!

Dream Catcher update:

Anacortes, Cap Sante slip C20, for the next few days. Leaving to head north on May 9.

Plan to be in Petersburg 6/1, Sitka 6/9, Auke Bay 6/22, Craig 7/7. The rest not yet planned - probably one more loop back north in SEAK, then slowly back to WA.

Just got our new AIS transmit working. MMSI is 367733860.

Took the liberty of adding your name to the list above. Nice crowd,

Came across Ron on the "Interim" back and in Canada for a couple of weeks. Nice to visit and will again when he is back in our area readying the boat for launch.

Yes, original reason for the post was to change from "Alternative" to "Howdy" after I got the AIS more properly programmed.

We spent some time in Hoonah last year. Enjoyed it. Tried to see the Alaska Bush People (their headquarters is here) but they were all on vacation in Hawaii.

Good timing "Twisted Tree" I have been attempting to depart for Wrangell, but 'Windy' site and the 'Canadian' [weather] gave pause. Thought hard this AM and took a moment to reconsider eventhough the local visual weather was flat calm and no wind, given an hour it turned much as you caught. Always tomorrow.

It's smokin' out in the Gulf. I've got 6 fenders out keeping me off the dock, and the wind keeps trying to lift them out from between the boat and dock.

Al,

I get to Wrangell on Saturday afternoon southbound flight. If you will still be there let me know. Heading toward Sitka next week but don't plan to get there until the 19th or so.

It got right sporty this afternoon here around Craig but the morning was nice. I think tomorrow will be decent again and thursday and friday are shaping up to be pleasant. for what its worth I use a combination of weather sites including windytv but the noaa marine point weather site is the one I seem to rely on more than the others. You can get quite specific when checking particular locations.

Hi Tom, so looking forward to seeing you guys. Not sure, was intending on this trip to wish an old acquaintance and half assed relative off to the "Other Side" memorial service. The need to be there is now more related to golfing. When the weather abates I will jump. I'd say that I'd be there after you leave. Will keep an eye out for you later in the season as you putt about the immediate area.

Fair winds and easy seas for your trip. Sounds as though 'Twisted Tree' discovered a 'Safe Space' if we are allowed using this verbiage in a more applicable intent in the Sitka area.

Hi Brother Dave- Have you viewed the 'Canadian' (I call it that like it is a person); Dixon Entrance East - North Coast - Environment Canada

I use it sort of a check against 'Windytv' There is little doubt using the two sites. One has to adjust and use common sense as to distance and timing. If the weather is coming out of the South/Southeast, then I add 6 hours to local time for that weather to hit here, on the other hand, Westerly or Northerly, one is already in what is forecasted but useable for the hours out from current.
Not so much detail but frank in the stated weather prognost.

Hi Al,
Yes that is a useful site as well. I don't use it as much as I once did, nor windytv either, and mainly rely on the noaa marine point but your post is a good reminder to check a few different sources.

Thanks.

I used the following and compared them against each other to get a clearer view of the weather. I never relied on just one source. We also ran into a situation where all our apps were wrong and Canada Environmental was spot on. We thought CE was always wrong but not that time. We got our asses handed to us in Dixon that day.
