    P.S. Your existing MMSI 338139395 finds MV LISAS WAY on all my applications but there is no up to date info. I can use only the website that you gave to track your progress.

      Glad you got the AIS sorted out. I see you in Petersburg via AIS now.

    Thanks, that works. I was watching you all the way until you apparently docked. I am so jealous of you!

      Great Wx! Terrific journey thus far! The only thing I’d change is to fly the appropriate country colors on the bow. YMMV. 👍😁

        Oh Jim... I thought about the size and position of my mexican flag for a long time.

        My boat will Always fly the American Flag as it's primary insignia. This is an American vessel and I am an American and proud of it.

        That flag just does not show up in most photos as it is at the stern of the boat and most photos are taken looking foreward.

        I am flying a much smaller Mexican Flag on the bow in the same area one would fly a yacht club insignia. I am doing this to remind me of my new life. In another day when I enter Canadian waters, i will be flying the Canadian flag in it's place as a courtesy to the great people of Canada.

        Kevin;

        It looks like you are underway down Wrangell Narrows. Have a safe trip today! Are you docking in Wrangell? If so, stop in to say Hi - we are in Heritage Harbor, 23C. I'll keep my eyes open for you. We'll be here for a couple days while we wait for the rain to stop.

            Keep the pics coming Kevin and enjoy the smooth seas! I've been able to watch you on your link and on Marine Traffic now that you've got the AIS sorted out. Have you planned your route through Dixon and Queen Charlotte Sound yet? Derek

                This morning after leaving wrangell Narrows I have a e to se wind of around 20 knots.

                The waves are small though because the fetch is small.

                The goal for today is to reach Ketchikan if possible. The weather looks good tomorrow for a crossing into Canada.

                Enviroment Canada is calling for seas in the Eastern part of dixon entrance to be 1 meter or less.

                Surprised you left deck line on the bow. Running solo I would be overly cautious. That being said, I have done the same hundreds of times. I think all of the BOC is following your journey with extreme jealousy.

                  Looks like a bit of bounce out there!

                    Looks like Kevin anchored up. Possibly to get out of the wind, or to get a break, or both. He has been peddle to the metal for a long time.

                      It looks like Kevin is holding up in mchenry anchorage off of elotin island? Windy is only showing 1 ft waves and 8 its wind (but gusts to 18); I hope all is ok! He ran those last hours tucked into the shore.

                        Kevin, I think you've made the right decision. I have been following your progress during the day and did not see how you could make it into Kechikan before 10pm! Take it easy, enjoy your trip tmrw.

                        P.S. Did I tell you I envy you😋

                          Yes he did the right thing being I live in this part of Alaska he was bucking straight into a evil section and it will get worse the close he gets to Ketchikan the sky’s are breaking up right now so tomorrow will be good when I watch him come out of Wrangell narrows and turned West I went oh no the Rock he passed called Lincoln Rock 99% of the time records the highest wind and gust .
