    Default In a pickle

    Anyone know where one can launch a boat in prudhoe bay? Looking to get into the sag. I thought there might be a launch somewhere around here but don't see one. There is gravel all the way to the river but its aweful soft!

    I thought there was a spot where that big bend is just south of Deadhorse where they've sloped the riverbank? There's a pull off there and a big gravel area. I thought I remember being able to drive right to the water and thought it was pretty solid. What kinda boat?

    At the end of the airstrip is a spot to launch into the sag. Had the truck down there just the other day, no issues at all with a 1 ton crew cab Ford.

    Any chance you could "borrow" some 2x8's from one of the companies locally to lay down and back into the water?
    Brooks range sells lumber, FYI.
    Are you up here right now? What size boat are you trying to launch?

    Yes in prudhoe now. Just talked to the BP security guard. He said we can't be on the lease at all even in the water. I always understood that below the high water mark was good to go. Just not on the ground.
