    Default A few pictures from the Sound

    Patience on the hook.



    A few shrimp after a 3 hour soak.



    My deck hands. I love the cleaning station. No more aching backs for me!

    This is what she looks like at 46+mph. Thanks Dman! That sound I hear is fuel flowing! At least I can get frequent flyer miles.



    My oldest helping head the shrimp.

    Little man fighting his first fish on Patience.



    A little sable fish. The kids (both the little ones and the big ones) like jigging for these while we are anchored up for the night. They cannot resist a silver buzz bomb.

    Life is good!



    Enjoying the sun.



    Entertaining the little ones. Just an FYI, after several clockwise laps around the boats, switching directions does not help with the dizziness. But when the kids ask for one more lap what is a dad to do?

    I always wondered how the cost of some of these boats (and fuel) can be justified. These pictures say it all! Experiences the kids (and adults) will have forever. Thanks for sharing...

    I could really learn to hate you guys with access to PWS. Your kids are just adorable, lucky for them and you to be able to experience all of that. AND, those shrimp are making my mouth water.

    My feelings exactly. What price do you put on memories? I have always believed that a family that plays together, stays together. We will have to see if this holds true once the kiddoes hit the teenage years.

    Just wait till they start bringing the boat back with the tanks empty all the time!

    If some high fuel bills keep my kids and their friends on the straight and narrow, I will be a happy camper! Kids that are bored get into trouble. I will do my darndest (is that a word?) to keep this from happening.

    Yea, but you guys get all that smoke, skeeters, and hot weather in the summer and butt cold in the winter! Life is good, no matter where in AK we reside. Just think, we could be sandbagging it in the Midwest! We will keep the kids. They have been an awesome addition!

    I actually find it rather ironic that you bought a boat the goes about 50 mph Patience.... Now, that is a perfect name for my old, slow, but very trustworthy C-Dory 22 like mine. However, clearly your boat is a highly tuned, precisely engineered, and very fast machine. Patience needs a new name Thanks so much for letting us drool all over it. They are great pics that show a really good time. I new I should have taken the little dory out last week....

    The name "Patience" came about from the whole boat build process. Very fitting if you ask me. Especially if you ask my friends and family. Patience is a newly acquired virture for me.

    Outstanding photos spoiled one !!! Can't agree more with you regarding memories. Your kids should do just fine. My friends and I grew up like that with our families and even thru our teens just continued to do what we enjoyed most - enjoying Alaska's great outdoors. NICE BOAT TOO!! Congrats to you and your family - the smiles on your kid's faces are priceless.

    I am not too worried, but I teach middle schoolers and see how they can turn on their parents. I will get them trained early and enjoy them now. The good thing is there is plenty of room for them to take a friend along. This may help as well as introduce someone new to our quality of life if you will.

    Lots of shrimp to be had. You will do fine. There is a lot of flat water in the forecast. Good luck! Wish I could join you, but I have to work all week.

    Great pictures! I know you and the family had a great time...you can see it all over your faces. You are right, thats what it's all about. I feel just like a kid when I have the chance to get out on the water with my son in law (DMAN) We both are very short on patience too but like you.....we are having to stand in line for DMAN's new boat to get built. I can't wait and I know that he is more than ready. Thanks again for sharing the pictures and the trip.
