Back to solo sailing! In most of this one, I meander around the vicinity of Ketchikan, Alaska, for several days as I await the arrival of a new crew mate, my good friend Alex Cebulski.

While singlehanded sailing around the area, I check out a very poorly charted anchorage called Ice House Cove, dodge cruise ships and stubborn sport fishers, think that I am about to get abducted by aliens, then have a fun sail back to Ketchikan. Alex arrives on a sunny calm day, and we set south back towards Canada.
