"Intrepid" is a Kadey Krogen trawler style motor vessel built in 1987 at the Chung Hwa Boat Yards in Taiwan - hull 138 of 206. She is 42 feet in length with a beam of 14.5 feet and weighs 40,000 pounds fully loaded. Carrying 750 gallons of fuel and 240 gallons of water, she is capable of extended cruising. A previous owner cruised her from Annapolis to the Caribbean and Venezuela then through the Panama Canal, the Sea of Cortez and up the Pacific Coast to Alaska over a period of three years (She was then named "Carpe Diem"). We know of no Krogen that has traveled farther on her own bottom than "Intrepid". We purchased her in 1999 and live aboard her four months of the year as we cruise the intricate waters of the British Columbia and Southeast Alaska coasts. She is berthed in Anacortes, WA.

Port McNeill to Sullivan Bay: August 13-19

We stayed four days in Port McNeill after dropping off Karen and Marni. The wind was blowing so we stayed a couple of days longer than we had originally planned.

Friday and Saturday: We made the three hour crossing of Queen Charolette Straits in calm water to arrive at Ladyboot inlet on Eden Island, one of our favorite spots. The next day we moved on to Moore Bay which once again proved to be a good spot for large prawns. Rolynn breaded them in a coconut batter. They were WONDERFUL. It was 90+ degrees so we closed up the boat and ran the air conditioner. We are so spoiled.

Bellisille Sound
Sunday and Monday: We headed up Kingcome Inlet to Belisille Sound, a new spot for us. It is long and deep with only one anchorage – off an abandoned indian reservation. Monday is was a little nook behind Cecil Island at the mouth of Greenway Sound – a beautiful spot with wide vistas.

Sullivan Bay
Tuesday – Thursday: We are at Sullivan Bay waiting for our California friends on “Seeker”. Sullivan Bay is located in the northern Broughtons and is a long established community of homes (one with a helicopter on the roof), marina, store and resturant all on floats. Get a hole-in-one on the water driving range and earn a night’s free moorage. We are counting on Rolynn.
