That is great Mark, thanks for that. I accessed it with no problems. Do you have the list of thosebsites/stops in document form? We can put that up on my Google drive and see if folks can access it.

Hi Mark,

I opened the map on my Macbook rather than my phone and now notice the list of stops on the left side. Obviously no need for a text list at this point then.

Any idea on fuel availability at these locations? Of course we will confirm going forward but it these are all reachable in a 23 with 75 Gallons of fuel we would have a great list to start.

I'll add a layer using NewMoon's fuel stop post, can confirm and add locations as needed. Also was able to add a gpx test route so if anybody has a good route in gpx form send it to me or just add a layer to map :)

Uh oh, you had better be careful here :-) This is showing that you have the skills necessary to handle this part of the organization. It could become something that we all count on!

I liked the post about the option of trailering up and shortening the trip for those that might want another option. I don't think that it is in my plan but latecomers could participate as well with this idea.

Does anyone have any interest in the Waggoner Seminar on Cruising the Inside Passage to Alaska? If so, look through the thread here and let me know. We could sign up together and save a little bit of money.

Here is a link to the seminar description:

I am definitely going to attend but if someone else were interested we could get the two ticket deal. Let me know by Monday if anyone else is interested.

Hey folks,

I am signed up for the Points North Seminar with Ranger, by Sam Landsman, and also for the Waggoner Seminar on Cruising the Inside Passage.

A great resource that is available online is Sam Landsmans new site, Slowboat.com. You can watch their entire series of videos, and so far they are awesome!!! Just some great information on prepartation, spares etc. They are also available on YouTube.

Unbelievably good resource for planning a trip of this type.

I just thought that I would share that.

By the way, I am wanting to go all the way to Glacier Bay and back, so I may have to keep chugging along once we get to Petersburg...

A cruise to Alaska would fulfill a 30 year dream! Put us on the list. We get our R-23 in 3 more sleeps! So much to explore and so little time.

I met you on the CapSante Dock today. (Talking with Glen) Also, met you and your wife at the Points North class last week.
I would like to be considered to join your "Fast Boats to Alaska" flotilla summer of 2019. Would like to have a face-to-face chat about it before committing. Will wait until you return from your trip north with Anne Cox. My biggest concern would be my current experience level, but very motivated. Currently boating solo.

Jagizzi (Jim), you have generated quite a lot of interest in your "fast trip to AK" in a short period of time! The interest lives on with some of us who are new to Tugnuts and anticipating delivery of our R27 mid-July. We look forward to seeing more on this fast trip!

We would be interested. Pick up new CW302 this July and a trip to Alaska is near the top of my bucket list. Please keep us included on the list - Bill Johnston (Overdue)

Yes, quite a bit of interest. We will see what things look like this fall/winter. Having just completed the trip as part of the Waggoner flotilla I can say that it will take some planning and coordination. We had 10 boats start this year and 9 finished. One left us at Shearwater to sort out some boat problems but was going to continue on once repairs were made.

Best time has got to be May/June timeframe. Later in the year and getting Anchorage and dock space in Desolation and the Broughtons would be tough. Also, Alaska weather is better those months.

Once summer is over we can get this going.

Be safe and I hope to see you on the water!

Posting here for our Tugnut friends. Reef Madness is a CDory TomCat 255. We are currently in Juneau, Alaska making ready to transit Icy Strait to Elfin Cove. We have made the inside passage trip 3 times. This trip was a spontaneous decision when sitting at the dock in Sullivan Bay. Alaska was calling and we couldn’t resist. We have seen more Ranger Tugs this year then any previous visits. Two days ago we met Ralph on “Rhapsody”, his beautiful tug. Ralph is traveling with the “Slow Boat” flotilla. Seems he travels a bit faster than the rest of the flotilla. For those who may be interested, this is the link to our blog. https://reefmadness355969868.wordpress.com/. Enjoy planning your “Fast Boat Cruise to Alaska”.
