Yep, Katzahien....that's it, thanks. I still have my sectional for the area, but I don't think its named or shows the strip either. The engine failure started further south, the point below Eldrod rock...not a good place. I did see a cruise ship and thought maybe I'd ditch in front of them but I thought they may not see me even if I went across the bow or just get knocked out in the ditching (I also had thought, get fished out and have a big buffet on the way to Juneau) The engine lasted a few minutes at best (swallowed a valve) and I was lucky I was in the Lynn canal stratosphere, 4500'. BTW: I remember using those antennas too....
