Alaska is farther then people realize. It is 4,500 driving miles from Seattle to Anchorage. Nautical miles may be a little less, but that would be one heck of a long ferry ride.
As the crow flies, it is 1400 miles from Seattle to Anchorage. I'd like to see a ferry boat make that trip in one day. Assuming an astounding average speed of 20 knots for a ferry (not likely) it would take 3 days at best.
