Still, Annie has a lot of useful information for someone wanting to cruise on the cheap.

That book makes an appearance in this video...

Seriously though, it is VERY different. People don't realize that living this far north is a serious life and must be taken as such. As an anecdotal example, I have SPOKEN at more funerals here in 10 years than I have ATTENDED in my previous 35. I have friends with missing fingers, one couple eaten by a bear, one crushed by a loader etc. Can you live outside of society up here? Yes. Will it be hard work and maybe tragic. Possibly. The Risk/Reward equation is calculated differently than lets say Florida or Texas.
Keeps the riff raff out

Although in the summer in Southeast there are an awful lot of motor yachts from Seattle and Victoria coming up the inside passage.

Re: Affordable (Shoestring) Cruising

Arrgh, It's already too late, But most of those power boat nimrods have electric prawn pullers on their 50 hp zods and they can't fix squat And they are always hitting rocks. Ready made income for the right fellow. Spent years at Lund Marine messing with boats.Used to be the entrance to the paradise of Desolation Sound but with the proliferation of chart plotters even the clowns make it north.
