    Brian,
    Made the same run in the opposite direction in a 60' river tug many years back. It's about 1000 NM from Kodiak to Sitka. Weather is definately the issue. Summer is best, of course - August least stormy. Problem lies in lack of decent forecast beyond 3 days and the chances of getting caught mid-gulf when a storm picks up. We hugged the coast with stops along the way, so the longest run in open seas was Yakutat to Cordova (about 200NM).
