alaskan voyage

Another good thing to have is about 600 feet of floating line on a reel so you can run a line to shore and tie it back on the boat. This is useful in a small anchorage when there isn''t room to swing.
I also recomend having good tide tables as some of the passes can have currents running 5 to 16 knots so its important to know when slack water is.
I have anchored in 20 feet of water and been hard aground when the tide went out so good charts are handy.
