Instead of heading south down the outside of Baranof Island, we will back track a short distance and head through Peril Strait to the eastern side of the island and then south through Chatham Strait.
Just as we were leaving

Trip: 20.1 nm Log: 3634.6 nm
We stopped just before Sukoi Inlet to try our luck at a little bottom fishing, and wouldn’t you know it!, we were lucky and caught a nice Quillback Rockfish. Not much of a fight, but fun to catch none the less! We get to open another present tonight from Walter and Mavis!
The wind was howling and the rain coming down in buckets just when we were trying to anchor. After getting the anchor down, we decided that we would move after the rain slacked off because we were in too shallow. Second time we were successful, the rain has slacked off but the wind is still 20 knots.
