Petersburg

We settled on Petersburg. Yeah, it's wet and cold but very friendly and pretty good amenities. Also cheap moorage rates. Not the cheapest. Kake takes the cake on that score - Less than $200 a YEAR - but no showers or restrooms available and a long walk to the only grocery in town. We were invited to stay at Port Alexander for free but no electricity at the dock (Although one of the fishermen offered us a portable generator to use) and groceries and fuel have to be ordered from Sitka and brought in by the weekly supply scow. Some people think we are hard core but not that hard.

Re: Where to winter (In SE Alaska)

hmmm.....having lived in the 'banks for over 20 years ...I would choose Baja.....that is me...however if I wanted to stay in South East...avoid Petersberg,,,,unless your name is either Hammer or Wiken......Frickin' Noveegians (sic)......Wrangel is a very friendly town...the polar opposite actually from Petersburg. Check out the smaller communities on the Prince of Wales Island....Try Craig or even good ol' Thorne Bay.......if you like Port Alexander and all....Whittier you are not gonna get space and good luck with Valdisease......anyway......for what it is worth......You could try Homer. Across from Homer are small communties...Bear Cove, Halibut Cove, etc. or even Seward...lots of good sailing there......Juneau ....just another government hole town very expensive.....
Anyway....good luck!!!
