Just got a transfer from WA to AK and will be moving up in the Spring.
Have a Skagit Orca 27 XLC, which we have enjoyed using in the Puget Sound.
It's a comfortable year-round boat down here for salmon, halibut, crabs, & shrimp.
Even take it 60+miles offshore for albacore tuna outta Westport in the summer.
I'm sure that it will make a good boat in Alaska, too.
But, how long is the sport-boating season up there?
Given, all of the other land-based recreational opportunities available in AK,
I'm starting to wonder about diversifying my "liquid-assets" and selling my big-salt boat,
in order to finance a smaller river-boat, maybe a raft, and some ATV's (or a plane)???
If I decide to sell? Besides here on AOB, where are the best places to advertize in AK?
(Craigslist, Boat Trader, etc.)
Or convince me to keep my boat, because it can be used for so much more, up in AK.
