It's a long story, but the short version is that I had planned on renting a boat out of Homer in mid-June and again next week, but due to mechanical problems the boat is not ready to be taken out.
Any ideas, particularly out of Homer? I usually have access to a boat in Whittier, but my family's boat is still out of the water getting the engine replaced. My in-laws are in town and really want to catch some halibut, but can't realistically afford the $200+ per person for a charter. I know about the Whittier boat rentals, but unless we run 40-60 miles out of town, the halibut fishing is spotty at best. My father-in-law is not the most patient fisherman, so I was planning on Homer due to the faster catch rates. I can't find any other boat rentals in Homer, but maybe there is something I'm not thinking of.
We're kicking around the idea of the half-day charter in Homer, but I sure would rather do it on my own.
