"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.

Waddington Bay and Crease Island: July 30-Aug 2

Goat Island Anchorage
Friday, Saturday, Sunday & Monday: After two days at Pierre’s we left Friday morning for an uneventful day and night at Waddington Bay. Saturday, we went to nearby and very pretty Goat Island anchorage at Crease Island to meet up with Crossroads and their English friends on “Cloudy Bay”, a 55’ Nordhaven. Also there were other acquaintances aboard “Silver Star”, Waka” and “Seagar”. Rolynn organized a dinghy party. We all brought drinks and snacks and tied our dinghies astern to “Cloudy Bay” for an hour or so. Later, we went aboard

Dinghy Cocktails
“Crossroads” for dinner with Stan and Diane. The following morning Rolynn spied a black bear ambling along the beach a 100’ or so from our boat. He rolled rocks and ate salial berries until he got to the nearby point. Then he jumped in the water and swam to a small island where he spent the day sampling the flora. Near evening he swam to even smaller islet but there appeared to be fewer pickings. Tuesday morning we will head to Port McNeill where we will meet Rolynn’s sister and niece, Karen and Marni.
