I have a 50' seiner with a raised tophouse and an aluminum bait shed, a 17' avon and an outboard, duck and goose decoys, crab pots, and an elk tag for northwest afognak. I was down on the westside of Kodiak this spring and saw lots of deer. Planning to hunt Afognak for elk, deer and ducks - could move to another part of Kodiak if necessary.
The boat is in Seward. I'm looking for 4 people to share the fuel costs. All my regulars are working or otherwise unavailable. I'll pick up the lube oil and wear and tear costs. Of course, we don't want to violate any transporter laws, so I'll have to verify exactly what we can and can't do regarding shared costs. If the transporter issue becomes a problem, then I'll probably just drag my dad along and go by ourselves.
Moderate beer or wine drinkers are ok, but if you're a hardcore whiskey drinker I don't have room. No drugs. Cigars are ok in the tophouse, but cigarettes not allowed on board. Total fuel cost will probably be around $5,000 figure another couple of hundred for food and brewskis.
If you don't want to ride the boat to Afognak, then I could pick you up in Kodiak or you could fly out to the boat. I have sat phone on board. If we have to go to Kodiak, the fuel cost will go up accordingly.
If you are uptight, on a tight schedule, or otherwise the type of person that you wouldn't want to hunt with, then save my time. If you like to have fun and are flexible, this is a great hunting opportunity.
BTW, I've been hunting Alaska since 1967 and operating boats since 1973. This is a "friends" hunt, everything must pass muster with the transporter laws and I am not assuming any liability for injury or damage to you or any of your equipment.
Oh, and I would like to leave the middle of next week if the weather permits....
