JRD's boat probably goes 2-3 knots faster than mine! I ave 6 under power, 6.5 is hull speed. so probably 4-5 days for me one way from Edmonds, a day south of JRD! so add at least one day that way....... a month to visit etc and get back home........

Spent a summer installing a patio plus for a client on Crane. Pretty place.

Of course, not sure what I was thinking, John's boat is much fast than mine as well.

Marty- the island you are thinking about is Yellow Island, which is just west of McConnell, which is just west of Crane. It's a nature preserve and you can go walk around on it but there isn't much wildlife, most famous for it's carpet of yellow flowers in the spring.
Oh, and while I wish it were true that our boat goes 2-3 knots faster than you, we generally motor at around 6.25 K. Three days to Roscoe Bay if we point the nose north and don't get distracted on the way:-))

So I would probably be 4+ with one day to the SJ's, then 3 plus depending upon how fast we motor at etc, usually upper 5's to 6 or so knots. Then one had currents...........

IT could be Yellow Island. One of them near it has a small train or appeared to have a train track running around it using binocs from the west sid of crane where I was working.

That would be McConnell Island. Apparently the original owner of the island built a small scale railway all around the island and had a small train that he used to run on it. He gave each of his three children a 1/3 of the island and you are correct, you can see parts of the railway if you look closely.
