  • Ketchikan it is then

    Well after visiting both border's immigration offices on what it would take to transit BC to Ketchikan, it appears it can be done with some planning. So now I am making plans to cruise to Ketchikan in mid to late June and return 4-5 weeks later. Having spent the past 15 years getting this boat prepared & ready to do this trip I don't want to do it when I'm in a wheel chair on life support. Plan on launching boat in late April/early May for time to cruise locally and be certain of everything running well. Have scoured the web for information and the Trawler Forum is the best I have found. https://www.trawlerforum.com/forums/...ska-54287.html
    "Joint Venture" 1978 midcabin 28', twin 2017 Vortec roller cam "bullet proof" 383/6.3L full roller 350hp engines - You name it, I've either replaced it, restored it, rebuilt it, repainted it or repaired it. That's my job now that I'm retired.

      Good for you. 😎
      The cruise liner QE2 moves only six inches for each gallon of diesel fuel that it burns.

                Definitely on my bucket list. Let me know if/when you are in the Nanaimo area and maybe we can coordinate a sail past or a socially distanced drink on the hook.
