Monday - We left Tracy Arm Cove this morning on the late side (for us - 10am-ish) to get to the entrance to Ford's Terror by 1:30pm (high slack in Juneau). It's been a few years since we took Kevin's brother to Ford's Terror, and he's psyched to see it again.

The flood current was rippin' as we crossed the Tracy Arm Bar...maybe 4-5 knots against us. It was very squirrely in spots, and this shot of the red buoy will give you an idea:

We crossed over into Endicott Arm and had current with us, so we throttled back and just sipped fuel all the way to the entrance to Ford's Terror, arriving precisely at 1:30pm.
