For what you're doing it's quite feasible, lot's of good fishing up there, even I could catch them.
Your post gave me the grins as I too have done that wonderful sailing trip. My boat was an engineless 30' trimaran ... well ok part of the trip I had a British Seagull. Up the coast, crossed to QCC from Banks Island, down the eastside to Rose Harbor and all the 'historical sites' along the way, out to Anthony Island and back to Rose Harbor. Seaplane taxied up and wanted me to dingy them ashore (was that you?)... did ... then in the middle of the night jumped off to Winter Harbor and down the outside of Vancouver Island and back to Port Townsend. Trip up and back took a bit over 9 months .... year was '76.
Really looking forward to finding you on the road with a blazing campfire. Have some wonderful sea stories to share and bet you do too.
