Made the first voyage of the year down the Sue and tie will most likely be the last year I launch from the deska. The keep increasing launch fees with no real change other than the electronic gate which that have had for over two years now. I am sure it has paid for itself several times over. When launch fees cost more than seward or Whittier it is time to rethink where i go. I gues I am tired of places that continue to increase fees knowing that folks have little to no other options. The power of the mighty $$ seems to get the best of a lot of folks. Anyway. Safe boating this season. Also talked to a guy there yesterday who went there last weekend and Telugu wouldn't let him launch due to what they say was unsafe conditions.
