Aug. 11 – Fuel Dock

We motored to our first Canadian port of call at Prince Rupert, B.C. We cleared customs (by phone!) but were late getting to the fuel dock. We decided to stay there for the night to be first in line for fuel in the morning!

A view of the Jupiter at the fuel dock. We left the fishing boat in Ketchikan to be barged to Seattle, and took on the dingy lifeboat.

A walk to the grocery store for supplies took us past the Pacific Mariners’ Memorial Park and the Kazu Maru, a Japanese fisherman’s boat that floated across the Pacific for 2 years before washing ashore near Prince Rupert. The full story is told eloquently here.
