Re: Duluth to Knife River

Once you've nailed down the area you plan to visit, let me know. I'm happy to tell you what I know about your planned cruising ground. I've travelled the whole stretch, from Thunder Bay to the Sault, a many times.

I love our Rocna (a 25 kg for our 27,000 pound boat). We also carry a large danforth, and a 15 kg Bruce as a stern anchor. There are some anchorages where a bow and stern tie are useful. In other places it is good to tie to shore with a stern anchor. But we hang off our Rocna probably 98% of the time.
Why go fast, when you can go slow.
