    Default I inherited this one...

    When we bought our cabin in Little Tutka Bay from my parents 7 years ago the "Marlinspike" came along with the purchase. I tried to get it to stop leaking but it was a lost cause after sitting exposed on the grid for years with no maintenance. Too bad, it was gorgeous inside...

    In the Sitka photo, looks like a very nice Tolman skiff....

    Marlinspike looks like it could have been a fun nice boat, too bad

    The red inflatable is for running tourist to St Lazaria Island and Cape Edgecumbe for sightseeing.

    The big yellow one takes kayakers to a couple different places for day trips were the kayaks are predeployed.

    Both are geared towards day trips for cruise ship tourist.

    The nice aluminum cats are fishing charters. Probably be for sale in a year or two given current conditions.

    I LOVE IT!!! and i'll bet there's not a single dollar owed to anyone on it!
    The lucky owner has a floating home, customized inside, just how they want it and they can still afford to eat! not to mention the laughs they must have when others at the marina show them their payment book

    Here's my dream boat for spending more time fishing and less time boating


    Perhaps a bit more practical would be an acb 29' sport cruiser
