I'm with these guys, get someone to drop you off at your destination and pick you up.  I have a 14 footer and It's just not enough, Especially if you plan to look farther than 20 miles of travel.  You will end up making more than one trip on the return end of the journey.  But if you are planning something like camping at decision point or in pigot bay and looking semi-close to whittier, I say go for it.  Remember, Approx 3 gal/hr with that engine, dont run out!  Bring a marine radio, GPS, Chart, compass, and know how to use these.  Basic navigation books are available at the library.  Water and temps are extremely cold, even though the boat won't sink it still can swamp (or flip if you really mess up)  Minimum of neoprene chest waders and good rain coat this time of year.  Have fun, get a bear, catch a buzz (at camp).
