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.

Too funny Marty!

Things look a little different on dry dock in the winter.

These are some beautiful pictures of Gods artwork at its finest. I sure miss Homer, the way it was when I was little. Our lives revolved around those boats. Infact those boats and their crews made Homer what it is today. To bad the people there dont all realize it. i miss Eric on the Susitna. I had so much fun out in Prince William sound with him durring Salmon Season. Glad you had a Thanksgiving full of family and good friends. It is the way to spend the Holidays.

Oh I miss the boat yard. And I can understand getting lost in it, but then I was, what, ten? last I spent any time in it. What's your excuse, Marty?

And where are Marty's pictures?

I love the first photo Bossco! All those boats look so proud weathering out the storm.

I always thought boats in storage looked a bit sad...

I was having to much fun playing in the snow to take pictures. I was the driver and it was Kiana’s job to take the pictures.

Thanks JJ! Although I must say, the weather was really helpful.
