We traveled to Alaska for 3 summers (1999, 2005 & 2009) and spent 3 1/2 years (2000 - 2003 traveling from Seattle through Central America, the Panama Canal, San Blas Islands and then stopping at all of the Atlantic Coast countries of Central America. That segment of the trip was one year. We then spent one summer going from Florida to Maine with the Fall spent in the Chesapeak. We wintered in the Bahamas and the Exumas. The next year we spent the summer in Nova Scotia and Cape Breton Island, the fall again in the Chesapeake and the winter in the Virgin Islands and the Eastern Caribbean. We then shipped Long Ranger home on Dockwise express. During our 3 1/2 years we always tried to maintain about 8.33 knots average speed while underway. We continue to use our boat in the Pacific North West cruising the US and Canadian Gulf Islands, Desolation Sound and the Broughtons.
