I have the opportunity to come back to AK for 3+ months starting in June (contract ending and the next one won't start for a while). I was there about 10 years ago for 9 months and brought only my canoe. this time I am considering bringing my powerboat for fishing/camping (and hunting if I can stay long enough). I was hoping that the members here would be able to advise me on whether or not this is a hair-brained idea.
The boat is as follows
15' Smoker Craft Alaskan (ironic) Semi-V hull with a high transom and only 1 (rear) seat, the rest of the boat is open. the semi-v is a v shaped bow and a flat bottomed stern
25 hp merc 2 stroke (I think it is of early 1980's manufacture) Prop driven, short (shallow) drive shaft- I have had it in water as shallow as 2.5 feet deep
Hummingbird depth finder
Minn-Kota trolling motor
Shorelander trailer with 12" tires
I would be towing it up from outside.
will this craft be of use in AK?
Is towing it up a reasonable option?
Do I need special protective equipment for the trip up the ALCAN?
thanks in advance
