A little deceiving maybe... since I'm delivering my own boat from Ketchikan to Seward in ~2 weeks. I have 16 days to complete this trip including air travel time... so no time for a leisurely cruise
I'm looking for route
First few days will be maintenance
and resupply. The boat is a '79 Rawson
PH with a 48HP Perkins
4-108. Hull speed
is about 6nm/hr @ .75-1 gal/hr. No radar
, so no night travel. 80 gal fuel
day 1: Leave Ketchikan and try to make Thorne bay or Ratz harbor
Day 2: Long day... Make Wrangell???
Day 3: Make Petersburg and meet up with other Rawson
Day 4+5: put down lots and lots of miles
Day 6: Make Juneau and resupply
Day 7: Over night in Funter Bay
Day 8: Make Hoonah to top off fuel
Day 9: Make Gulf and start crossing 4-5 days
All this is weather
dependent of course, with a significant possibility of having to winter the boat in Hoonah.
I know that weather
will be unpredictable, and hope I can time the tides to my advantage. Is this plan to ambitious?
