Thanks Gord and John for the welcome.
I'll have to remember that Gord, never knew the Afgani link.
Yes, PWS is a cruiser's dream. Mostly protected, hundreds of bays and islands, incredible wildlife, and great fishing
. We port out of Valdez in the NE corner of PWS. We purchased our present boat two years ago, and have cruised nearly 3000 nm during our forays. Most of our trips are 2 -7 days, so we have done some areas multiple times. I estimated we have covered 10% or so.
You got the handle right John. In my former life I flew for nearly 20 years up here, sold my plane a few years back. We got the bug for boating
, and are really enjoying our choice. If you do head
this way, I would recommend "The Cruising Guide to Prince William Sound" by Jim and Nancy Lethcoe. It's our bible as we explore, and is pretty dead-on. They spent nearly 30 years exploring every nook and cranny, taking soundings and checking bottom. Lots of great history
and insights too.
Once again, thanks for the welcomes
