    Talking New Boat Purchase Finally Done

    Hey Guys,
    I just wanted to thank everyone for all the in-put and opinions during my search for the new boat. I had ordered a boat and ended up cancelling for various reasons and ended up buying one here in Alaska. It is a 2006 26 foot NorthRiver Seahawk Off-Shore with an 8 foot cabin, twin Suzi 140's, Maxwell windlass, pot puller (not ace), Garmin 3210 with 4kw radar, twin suspension seats, wallas heater and a bunch of other goodies. I think it came down to the value in the end but I really wanted a self-bailing deck and the hull designs of the Off-shore model seems to get good reviews on the ifish.net website. It will be called the "Lani Kai" and it will be in Seward and Whittier as soon as it is decent enough for fishing.

    I can't seem to post a picture unless it is thumbnail size though. I will try later when I figure out how.

    Default The Rental "Girl"

    Yes it is from the rental "girl" in Whittier. She really seems to know what she is doing on a boat and since it comes with a 6 year warranty on th motors, I felt it was a good move.

    Smile The Boat Name is...

    Lani Kai. It is Hawaiian for Heavenly Ocean. My wife's Lani and it also keeps the peace in the house. It really helps if you are asking for forgiveness rather than permission when it comes to these toys.
