seattle to kodiak and the alaska peninsula, adding 3800 mi for total of 15,000. previously rec'd the 10,000 mi. with about 1500 left over . In 2010
went to end of Alaska Peninsula, and explored the Shumagin Islands
Now we have a new SAMBA, N5266. She has done 3000 miles as of today, just leaving Alaska after 4 months poking around. Always looking for new coves and anchorages, now up to 400 different anchorages from Seattle to the Alaska Peninsula. Still a lifetime of exploration awaits. New SAMBA handles beautifully and is remarkeably fuel efficient.
may,2014. From Alaska down to southern BC last fall, then up to Prince William Sound. This year went into Lituya Bay and Icy Bay on the way up. Spectacular scenery in both. Lituya Bay and the thought provoking entrance looking at the effect of a 1700 foot tidal wave! and 12,000 foot Mt Lituya and 3 glaciers in front. Icy Bay with 18000 foot Mt St Elias looming directly over the bay. Onwards toward Kodiak and the Peninsula.
After a few months adventuring around the Kodiak Archipelago and the Alaska Peninsula, we have SAMBA tucked into her permanent slip in the Kodiak Municipal Boat Harbor. As usual we shrink wrap her for the winter. It really makes a difference! Already looking forward to next year and further out in the Aleutians.
