Statement:

The rare beauty of Wrangell Narrows Strait; a winding twenty-two mile channel between Mitkof Island and Kupreanof Island in the Alexander Archipelago in Southeast Alaska, is darkened only by the myriad dangers of navigating this body of water.

Once in, there is no safe way to turn: remnants of failed voyages momentarily appear and disappear in the grey distance, dense fog muffling any sound beyond light slapping water and the hum of our vessel.
