I am in the process of buying
a 46 ft steel
schooner which is now in Washington
. I need to plan a trip from Port Angeles to Honolulu and wonder if anyone has made the voyage in April or May.
Also, what is the best source for cruising info around the islands? I've heard that the channels can get very nasty at times. I plan to spend several months sailing around the islands to get experience with the new boat and then head
for New Zealand
Finally, I need to hire a captain
to bring the boat over from Washington
. I'd like to find someone in either Washington State or Hawaii
. Any suggestions?
