Port Wrangell, Alaska
Anchorage Position: 57 03.41 N 156 37.05 W
Port Wrangle is pretty nice, towering cliffs laced with waterfalls backed by snow speckled peaks. The anchorage is about 50' deep with good holding in thick dark mud and subject to some williwaw action in NW winds.
No bears were sighted nor were any salmon seen jumping and our crab trap pulled blank. So, were moving along toward Agripina Bay and tomorrow weather permitting toward Geographic Harbor which is said to be frequented by plenty of Grizzlies. As we motor out of Port Wrangell in the pass between David Island and the Alaskan Peninsula we had winds accelerate to 40 knots shooting down the river valley adjacent to Port Wrangell, happy I didn't have a full set of sail flying for those gusts on the beam.
That's it for now.
