I'm moving up to Alaska from Oregon, and I am trying to sort through the list of stuff that I have to see what I should bring, and what I should sell. I have a 17 foot aluminum sled with center console that I just bought this year. It's got a 140 Suzuki outboard jet, that I may be buying a prop lower unit for as well. I really like the boat, but I'm wondering how useful it will be around ANC.
I bought this boat for duck hunting in the Columbia River. It has a half-top that covers the front, so there is a little weather protection, but not anywhere near complete.
Appreciate any opinions you folks have. Also, what's the easiest way to get a boat up? I've been looking at the Alaska Marine Highway system, but wondering if there are other options.
