I have taken a bunch of friends out on my boat, some for a week or more, including some great new friends I have met on this forum and not in person until we all arrived in Valdez. We have all had great times together, and it sure makes you appreciate the wonders of Alaska and PWS all over again when you see their eyes widen and sparkle, and hear what they say. Plus catch fish of course!
Well, a couple of years ago I took two young guys from the college in Idaho out, and when we got to my nice, nearly new boat, one of them said "Hey Ron, you missed your chance---you shudda stopped at that derelict we passed along the dock and said 'Here we are boys' "
So, that will definitely happen this season, maybe several times....meanwhile, have any of you ever done this? I can see Pete--Spoiled One-- stopping at some rusty, crusty, salty old beater and saying "Folks, Patience is still at it but she's got a few miles on her"
