MY grandpa had a stroke a few years ago and is definitely not capable of operating his boat (16' C-Dory w/ 45 horse honda). Grandma has had it up for sale for a while and it hasnt sold. Finances are no issue for them; she's just trying to take care of a 'loose end' so to speak. She's asked if I would want to hold on to it so it could stay in the family. I've been getting very interested in ocean fishing and crabbing out of Whittier lately and am really considering it.
So, my question is, is this boat adequeate for fishing out of Whittier? I would never go any further than Knight or Port Nellie. I just dont know much about ocean boats yet. I've gone on the Kenai almost every year with my Dad, but have only Jet-skied in PWS or caught rides with people. Would it be worth accepting or would it be a ridiculous boat to run out of Whittier? I know they ran it out of Valdez a lot but grandpa was a master boater. What do you think?
