Welcome, MurrayM... Commercial fished and towed logs in Douglas Channel back in the 50's and 60's. Cheers, Phil

Re: A north coast BC hello!

I lived up there for 10 years from early 70s to early 80s. Fished most of the inlets in the area. Many fond memories. Planning a trip up there this summer. Welcome aboard.

We leave Vancouver for a leisurely cruise to Juneau starting in early April. We'll wave on the way by.

Might see you out there as you go by

Life dealt my wife a bad hand (car accident) so we moved from sea kayaking to buying Badger, our first boat, a little over a year ago. Our first 'cruise' last summer was a two week romp up to Prince Rupert and back. This year we have four weeks to spend between Hakai Pass and Kitimat...so much to explore between Hakai, Kitimat, and Prince Rupert!

We'll head south and north of those points after a bit more water passes under the keel.

Re: A north coast BC hello!

Welcome to CF, Murray. "Found" the south end of Douglas Channel last September while heading north to Ketchikan. Crossing Wright Sound at the Douglas Channel in flow, over to Grenville Channel was the roughest water we saw on the entire trip.

Do want to make the turn on one of these trips.
