Sorry to dig up an old one, but this is something that I am very interested in. I live in Fairbanks, AK now and plan to move to anywhere south of Seward along the coast that has an open slip.
However, Seward is the farthest south that I have made it so far, and it is gorgeous. So I know that I am not making the wrong decision.
My purpose for continuance...
How did your trip go?
Did you see any wildlife and which ones?
What were the typical yachts that you saw en route, if any?
What conditions were the docks in?
Which ports did you make it to? Juneau, Sitka, Ketchikan, Wrangel, Haines, Homer...
Did you not finish this thread because you got to Alaska, fell in love with it, and moved into a bus in the woods?
