    I have had mine in Homer for 3 years now. Kind of spendy for 5 months of use and that figures out at $250 a month for use, but it sure is handy. I'm in the CC slip area, where are you kundsemr

    How long did you have to wait to get it?

    I got mine in a year also. The folks at the harbor office told me in May that I had a good chance of getting one in the fall and that's just what happened. It's great having a stall.

    This past week the harbor has frozen up pretty good. I spent yesterday afternoon "chippin' and movin'". Got the boat out of J-12 and put in on the end of J float after plowing a path out to the main channel. I'm going to head over to our cabin on the south side today. Just praying I can get back into the harbor when I return tomorrow...

    Cliffhanger, yeh I went down to homer yesterday for some hockey games and went and checked out my spot...and like you said its was all frozen up. I saw a few boats like mine with outboards and they had them down in the water just encased with ice. This cant be good can it? I would think the motors should at least be out of the water, Whats your thought? SKOOKUM......Nice,
    I recognize that boat : )

    This is my first winter in a frozen harbor with a new boat, so I will defer to boaters with more experience like Homer Dave.

    However, I always store my engines raised up when I park my boat.

    Thanks for the compliments on Skookum. We love our new boat...
