Synopsis: **Signed by author and includes matching bookmark and detachable pocket course cards.** Wrangell Narrows is a treacherous body of water threading between Petersburg, Alaska at the north end and Point Alexander to the south, painstakingly navigated by a wide variety of ships, barges, ferries and private craft. Less than fondly nicknamed Pinball Alley, Christmas Tree Lane, The Twisting Nightmare, or simply The Ditch, the Narrows requires the utmost in nautical experience from those who seek to run its length. Captain Hopkins has compiled an invaluable source book for all those interested in the seaway history or intricacies of navigation in this area of Southeast Alaska's Inside Passage, beautifully enhanced by Captain Matt G. Wilkens' superb photographic images of the Narrows.
About the Author: As a captain on the Alaska Marine Highway System, William Hopkins sailed the waters of Alaska from the Bering Sea to the Inside Passage for thirty years. An unlimited ocean master, he also spent many seasons as a pilot on the cruise ships plying the waters of the Inside Passage. Captain Hopkins has pilotage for nearly all of the 3,500 nautical miles of the Alaska Marine Highway, from Seattle to Dutch Harbor in the Aleutian Islands and is a graduate of Massachusetts Maritime Academy.
