I plan to anchor in Kalinin Bay on the extreme north end of Kruzof Island several times this summer and felt it was time to remind summer cruisers about the uncharted rock in the area of the big rocky shoal in the narrow entrance. The rock has been reported in boat blogs several times such as Privateboatinginstruction.com. The website shows the location. There is an interesting story posted by Inside Passage News.com about the m/v Hale Kai’s misadventure with this shoal. Lesson learned is to never turn over your helm to an inexperienced person in less than ideal conditions.
