Little Skookum branches off from Totten Inlet to the west at about 4.5 nm. We should have slight current assist going into Little Skookum. Plan on lunch about noon and then following ebb current out back into Totten and back to launch.  I rate this a possible SK III due to winter weather conditions and max wind we will tolerate.
