Editor’s Cruising Pick:
We would love to take this boat through the Inside Passage to Southeastern Alaska, where the views of playing orcas and pinetree-studded shorelines could be enjoyed in the bracing fresh air on the flying bridge. Like us on Facebook and let us know where you would take the Hargrave 76.
