Re: My last little bit of planning
I heartily agree with Bilgewater about the crab pot and jigging pole. Shrimp are work. But while earlier posts said your 10 gallons of gas was insufficient, we sailed a 24' Newport Neptune for 10 years, and carried only the 6 gallon tank with a 1 gallon emergency tank. You are planning to venture further in your 23 than we did in our 24, but since we have cruised a 34' to the areas you intend to see, and the longest distance is Pender Harbor to Lund for fuel, about 47 miles. With 100 mile capacity and 10 gallons of fuel, you should be fine.
Also, there is fuel on Orcas and Lopez, and two locations on San Juan Island. Then there are Ganges, Montague Harbor, Telegraph Harbor, Nanaimo, Sydney, and Pender Harbor and Lund, as I mentioned earlier. None of these locations challenge a 100 mile capacity for distance.
