Here’s a good link to look at about insects: http://www.alaska.org/advice/mosquitoes-in-alaska. Jim Says: southeast Alaska is not as bad as you would expect, but you should have bug nets that cover your face and 100% Deet works when we are in a buggy anchorage.
Loonies and US quarters. I have found it is less expensive if you let the operator do the wash and fold for you.

Since you were the first to ask, you will have to build a bow drill to start the first camp fire.
Potlucks can be very competitive, bring your best recipes. Extra points are given for items found or caught.
Maybe one a week if we find a beach or dock and the weather permits.
I wouldn’t worry about another station license or MMSI number. The hand held doesn’t have a lot of power or range. Most likely someone on another boat will hear and relay.
We will setup the VHF safety protocol and relay system before head off into the wilderness.
We recommend scheduling well in advance of your departure date. Most boat yards have a hard time fitting boats in for work especially during the beginning cruising months & just before. Getting your boat on the schedule is essential for timely service work completion. We highly recommend getting your boat serviced in the fall or winter months when boat yards are less busy.
