Homer Boat Yard
During the storm one of the places we went was the boat yard. It hadn't been plowed at all and except the main lane, there weren't even car tracks anywhere. Marty was having way to much fun pushing snow in the car and goofing off. While we were back there we ran into several boats we know.
The "Middy" is named after Marty's Grandmother. At one time it was owned by his grandparents but Marty said his uncle Burt ran it as long as he could remember. He said his Uncle Burt usually fished in the same areas as they did. Good times I guess. I had only heard of the boat a small handful of times and when we turned the back corner in the boat yard Marty said "whoa!" He hasn't seen the boat in 5 or 6 years.
I use to work for Halibut King Charters, we are still very close to the owners. This is the lead boat "Miss Minmar" tucked in for the winter.
This is HKC's secondary boat "Halibut Endeavor"
I took these pictures of the same HKC boats back in summer of 2002
So nice to take a drive down memory lane in the boat yard. Its a cool place to cruise through. Speaking of which, any friends and family reading this will have to give Marty a hard time next time you see him....
He got lost on the main lane in the boat yard during fridays storm, hehe.
