Going to bring a boat across the Gulf of AK next month from Juneau to Whittier. Should be a great trip across mostly open water with little company... Except maybe some blue bears... and some fish...

But it will be a slow trip at 8-9k.

best, most reliable propulsion system in a boat I've found yet. I love my canoes. I wish I could use them more.

Very nice Dave. I've got a 17' Alumacraft canoe. Haven't used it in years, but I dragged it out from under the cedars awhile back and it appears to be gtg.

I've got more boats (and motors) than sense, but they've been a hobby of mine, fast or slow, fish or pleasure, for my entire life. Always buying, trading, selling. The only ones that remain consistent are the fishing boats here in the states and at our place in Canada. Once you find what works, you stick with it. Way too many to post; a lot I don't even have digital pics of.

Herter's 14' Model Alaska purchased new back in the early 1970's, North Channel of Lake Huron..I have a 16' Herter's Model Yukon up there as well with a 40hp Johnson, an old Starcraft aluminum 14' with another 18hp, a Stingray ski boat, and a couple of canoes, jet skis, sailboat etc. The family has been going up there since 1957, so accumulating stuff over 53 years time.
We also have an old Starcraft center-console at my uncle's farm near Vermillion, Ohio for walleye fishing. He's 90 now and no longer fishes; I bought the boat, and I'm keeping up the tradition.

lol I think I saw you out in the middle of Raybob one day. That one's a little too little for me to be out in the middle of the lake on.

I have floated my tackle box and gotten my feet wet more than once in that thing. It will swamp easily but doesn't sink. I have turned it over, that's no fun.

great boat! one of the finest fishing rigs for the Great Lakes; a good friend has one he keeps at Kewaunee, WI for salmon fishing. It's powered by twin 190hp Mercruisers- the large-bore 4-cylinders that are basically 1/2 of a Ford 460 v-8.
Fantastically reliable, fast enough for beat the weather if need be, and great fuel economy. I've wanted one for years, but I get to fish with him enough that I haven't felt the need- right now I have too many other boats scattered around anyway.

I couldn't be without a boat. Been around them my whole life.
Here is my last boat, I hope. Got it new in '84 still looks modern, deep V with bennett trim tabs handles big waves found on many of our large western lakes.
