We're thinking about moving to Anchorage next summer. I am wondering if I would find use for this boat and motor combo, there probably aren't too many of them up there, but there aren't too many of them here in Montana either and I have put it to good use. I would mostly want to use it to access fly fishing and hunting. It's a Mud Buddy 35HP motor and the boat has 21" gunwales. It is nearly 18' long. Motor is not supposed to be used in salt, but people do it anyway. It is set up so that it can be rowed but it's very heavy so it can only be rowed down a deeper river with no serious obstacles because you can't just ferry it across with a flick of the oars- it is better for just holding a line downriver with no obstructions. Will I find good places to use it?
