Hellen Marie,
I had a friend in SE Alaska that had a DF34. I like DeFevers but like small boats. In time maybe I can have a look at yours.
Getting back to working on my boat and looking fwd to the warm (relatively) weather. And spring is comming. The real spring not the calender version.

Yes we should get together, I would like to see yours as well. Our DeFever was in Juneau, two owners previous.

Half the people on this forum are either in Alaska, or on their way "someday", including me.

I've actually done it a couple times; from Seward to Juneau, a two-week delivery from Seattle to Ketchikan, once on an 800' TOTE ro-ro, and I have flown extensively in "Southeast", but never made the trip at the leisurely pace it deserves.

So my plan is three months this year in BC, to include the West of Vancouver Island and possibly Haida Gwaii. And then in 2018, 5 months in Southeast, Prince William Sound, and Kenai Fjords.

Here's Tenacity, which I delivered to the Ketchikan YC in 2009:

Wow, sounds like a near duplicate of our plan for both this year and next year.
I ran fish boats, crew boats, and tugs, early in my career, but never had time for cruising/sightseeing.
We have some very specific areas to revisit in and around Prince of Wales Island, and my wife insist on a stop in Juneau, and Sitka where we still have family.
This will be 2018.

cant remember the owners name, but he lived on Fritz Cove Road. The boat may have been kept in Auke Bay or Tee Harbor. The name at that time was Wanderer IV or so we were told. This was 25 years ago.

Loved Meyers Chuck. Trolled and sold there several times (with my father) in the mid fifties.

I envy you guys who live in the Puget Sound area. Those northern destinations are so close for you. For us, we have to calculate in at least a week to get to where you are.

AlaskaProf,
HaHa I see you w the sailboat at the Ketchikan YC and across from the Pioneer Hotel. When we went to K town we usually tied up at the YC but if the weather was too bad we'd get a room at the Pioneer and ride the ferry .. from POW Is.

Blessings on your trip/s

Here we were in K town looking north.

While I regard Ketchikan as a charmless burg made worse by industrial tourism, I make exception for the cozy k.y.c. and their quaint shack-on-a-barge clubhouse. We picked it quite arbitrarily--it's next door to the customs dock.

By chance, we arrived on Friday, just in time for Members' Barbecue and they treated us like visiting royals.

GOOD STORY: After dinner, shipmate and I asked where to get a cocktail and were directed to The Wheelhouse. Other guy thought we weren't "tough enough for The Wheelhouse", and told us about the big fight between Smith and Jones just last week in which Smith bit off Jones' nose and spat it on the floor whereupon it was eaten by his dog.

Firstguy replies, "Yeah, but that won't happen again, they have a new policy ....

No dogs."

But with a slow boat and being further South, it still takes a while to get there.

My Dad, and I spent the Winter of 1956 tied up in Thomas Basin. It was cold. All the fresh water flowing out of Ketchikan Creek made ice three inches thick.

Welcome to the forum, From your history, we should have or may have passed. Home town is Ketchikan. Be interesting to visit were you to arrive here. Keep the forum posted with your plans, whistle a few bars and I will pick up the tune and we shall gather.

To the AKProf- I hear you on Meyers Chuck. My most favorite stop over particularly as our's is a small craft, and Clarence Straits a big piece of water at certain conditions, the Chuck is a welcome hold over spot. Good folks there as well when you become acquainted.
Don't have Cassy Peavy's cell phone # here at the house but will pick it up from the boat and post to you. If you contact her prior to arrival with the intent to overnight you can order hot cinnamon rolls delivered in the morning.
A real treat and be assured they are as large as Cinnabunns and as good.

We have a plan to head north next year. A return visit Edna Bay is on my bucket list.
I attended Main School in 56'. Friends with Jerry Germaine, Stan Sallup, Ron Porter, back in the day.

Okay, you were behind me. I was in class of 57- spoke with Ron the other day. Jerry is either 'Gone' or someplace down South. Knew of a 'Ronda' Sallup, could be Stan's wife. I know not Stan. Don't want to steal the thread. If you wish, PM me. Al-Ketchikan
