Memories. Been on the water a good portion of my life, now 62. Started working on my dads tugs about age 10, first trip to Alaska from Seattle at 12 on an old wood tug with a heavy duty Atlas of 200HP. Spent the whole summer working in and around Sitka, towing logs, logging camp floats, barges, what have you. Who could forget that? Had boats of my own and taken the kids on trips to the San Juans on an old Monk cruiser, the navy whaleboat and hope to soon with the 34 CHB just bought. I once threatened to leave the area and move to Montana. Neighbor lady said ha, no way, you got too much salt water in your veins. I poo poohed that, but she was right.
