    I'm certainly not biased, maybe Hewescraft?

    Lots of different types out there. I certainly wouldn't say there's an over whelming type the rules the place. I sea alot of seasports, hewes, and bayliner.

        Mostly they are either aluminum or fiberglass (what else is there??)...and there are advantages and disadvantages to both, which have been discussed many times on the forums....so you should decide which of those you want (metal or glass) by looking at those threads, then you can decide which make and model. Most of the boats that spend much time on the water have a cabin, and most of those have a heater and windshield wipers! Of course, you have to decide whether outboards (1 or 2? endless threads on that...) or inboard/outboard or full inboard. Most of the boats with one big engine will have a kicker/trolling motor, usually 10-15 hp.

        I'd say the most common setup is a 22-28' metal or glass boat with outboard(s) or inboard/outboard (sterndrive) and a cabin.

        Of course, there are really lots of different opinions from mine, that's just what I notice in the harbor and on the water out of Valdez.

          It is amazing the variety of boats I see out there. Everything from flat bottoms with tiller handled jets (not recommended) to multimillion dollar yachts. I agree with Patrick. There a lot of Hewescrafts out there and for good reason. They have the range that you will want and are a safe, stable fishing platform at a great value. I used a 24 footer out there for six seasons. There are a lot of bayliners and seasports as well. Lots of choices out there. Range is king.

              OH! In that case, I'd agree that there are probably more Hewescraft than any other single make...for the reasons Spoiled One said which were good enough for me to buy mine, for the under $90K new crowd. There are some better makes for the over $120k++ crowd; of course used prices are relative to those.

              Lots of AK people look down in Washington State or even Oregon or CA for used or new and tow it up, and still save a bundle but you never know. I've heard some good advice on the forum that especially for a used boat, decide what you want, have the money ready, and jump on it when you see it in Craig's List or wherever because good-deal used boats go fast!!

                I'm kinda partial to these type hulls but in my opinion this would be a nice rig for the sound and i'm thinking it would run pretty cheap. Long haul to get it here but it might be well worth it.

                      Hey Bush. AL is Alabama. Last I checked they still use U.S. currency. Nice boat. Sure looks like a big 27.

                        Here's another one that looks like a nice rig. Not a true downeast hull but close and what does anyone know/care about DE's in this part of the world(except me). found a few more.

                          I see a lot of C-Dory boats, not that Iím partial or anything. In the summer Iíve counted 14 in the boat yard, and usually see about a dozen on the water any given weekend. 22ft is the most common than 25s and the occasional 25.5 TomCat, I see a few 23t and 26ft Ventures- also a C-dory boat. The C-dory anglers range in size for 16 to 26ft, the 19 and 22ft seem most common up here.
                          Yea, I see a lot of C-doryís.
