Port McNeal to Namu 5/7,8/2011

We sneaked out of Port McNMeal at 11AM to head for Bull Harbor but when we got to open water it was a go decision to cross Cape Caution and anchor in Fury Cove. We were in 5 to 10 foot swells but at 8 to 12 second intervals so it was not to bad steaming at 13 knots. Spirit arrived about 3 hours after we did. Silver Star was also anchored in Fury Cove on their way to Alaska and we spent a quiet night on the hook having Traeger smoked Ling Cod with the Gills on SEa Jay for dinner.

Next morning we decoded to go to Namu and had a good time exploring the old fish cannery and they make a nice fire in the party barge for us. As you can see from the attached photo hanging on the party barge wall, they have a young new female marina manager who was quite pleasant to chat with

Next morning May 9 we headed for Shearwater for supplies before forging on to Prince Rupert with planned stops at Bottle Neck, Kuetz Bay and Lowe Inlet. Shear Water is getting ready for the season repairing the docks which broke apart in a 110 mph wind storm this winter.
