Hi Jacky,

Well, now you can drive to Whittier. A couple of years ago, they paved the track area and now there's a one-way road (direction is controlled by a schedule) that is shared with the railroad. It just barely fit our fireboat on its trailer for the trip in for the SAR event we went there on. I didn't care that much for Whittier, but the Passage Canal and Prince William Sound are always awesome.

I much prefer Seward, it's an easier drive. Prettier, too.

Cheers,
Wally

It's got to be prettier. there's nothing there that older than 1964. It's all pretty country. Most folks just can't grasp what it is like to be up there. Every one has to help each other cause you never know what kind of help you will need yourself. It's probably a little different now but back then even in the city the real wilderness was only 15 minutes away.

Hi Jacky,

No, ice isn't a problem very often here. We can get a thin sheen of ice in the boat harbor, but we're usually ice-free. Any kind of wind at all makes it go away.

Cheers,
Wally

Hello Wally,My name is Penny Moran and my husband Bill and I owned the Rikki T in Seward for several years. Small world!! I only registered to reply to your post as I thought it was nice to know she is still gving joy in the Great North. Bill and I married in '95, forced to move to Seattle due to his work with Crowley Marine, then he died very suddenly in July '02. I miss him, I miss Seward, I miss AK and I miss the Rikki T. We sailed in the Sound and many, many trips here and there. I still treasure our old charts from those adventures. She is (was) my second own true love. I hope to move back to Seward, at least that's my goal dispite a disability and another surgery soon. Treat her well, my friend.

Hi Penny,

She is loved, and is coming along nicely in her rehabilitation (she's seaworthy, just a few cosmetics and upgrades to work on). My 4 yo granddaughter, Caitlin, asks my wife, Lee, "Can we go eat lunch on Rikki?!" We're hoping to do Thumb Cove on Sunday night and Agnes Cove on Monday night. Small steps. We'll take good care of her.
