In 2005, we purchased a 2825 Offshore. We launched from Rupert across Dixon Entrance in 40 mph winds. That boat performed great as we navigated Prince of Wales, Baranof, Chicagof, Admirality, Kuiu, Etolin, and Kupreanof Islands. Many exciting memories for my wife and I in our KingFisher Offshore.
I recently purchased an Extreme Shallow from Canyon Marine in Idaho. This spring I towed to Prince Rupert, B.C. to bring it home. On the way, I stopped at the Salmon River. I was warned not to go up if the water level was over 15′. I departed with 17′ of water and ran 45 miles up the river. Shallow wasn’t the challenge. Extreme rapids and white water was a true test of the hull. Needless to say, it was an adrenaline rush but a very successful and rewarding trip.
