    Welcome to Alaska. There is several places you will be able to use bass tracker. There is a ton of lakes your boat will do great on, Big Lake, Lake Louise, Kenai Lake. You may do NICE weather days in the salt water, Seward, Whittier, Homer. There is little boating in the Anchorage area, going to have to drive a little before you launch. You maybe be able to use it on the Kenai river IF it meets the motor restrictions, which can be looked up online.

    There are two lakes in anchorage that allow power boats, but they are limited to 50hp.

    Heading South there are no restrictions on Kenai Lake, though the wind can kick up a chop.

    Heading North there are lots of lakes as already mentioned.

    If this is a welded jonboat, you could add a jet pump to your outboard and head for the rivers as well.

    50 HP max, and four-stroke only.

    The other 299,300,000 people can have it.

    Noone has a more intimate understanding of, or deeper appreciation for freedom, than a soldier who has fought for it in a country where it does not exist.
