me, a boat is not an end in itself. It is a vehicle to carry
me into worlds of adventure that are otherwise inaccessible.
Across straits, through channels, beyond the next island,
wilderness awaits. And you get to carry your own bed, hot
shower, and galley meals with you.
Of course, there are
also rare opportunities to visit cities, towns, and
villages: Seattle, Friday Harbor, Sidney, Vancouver,
Victoria, Nanaimo, Alert Bay, Bella Bella, Ketchikan, Sitka.
It is also an
opportunity to learn about the great Northwest, its history,
maritime heritage, native cultures, and the many ways the
Inside Passage has served so many different people
materially and spiritually.
And, finally there is
the joy of accomplishment that comes from learning to safely
and competently manage one's own boat.
