Our time in Alaska is coming to an end. The crab have been caught, boxed and shipped to market. We sail south at midnight in order to catch the tide in Unalga pass and then it is out into the vast North Pacific, our ETA in Seattle is around the 2nd of March. Time to put the "old girl" to bed for a spell, as it will be several months before she commands our attention again. The summer months always pass quickly and we will find ourselves back at it before too long.
Our chores here are complete, the gear is neatly piled high at Westward Seafoods and we thank them for always being so helpful. Westward is a top notch cannery and we are lucky to have them as part of our team.
Lastly, we have been invited to eat dinner at Lenny's family home. The Lekanoffs get together every Monday and they have invited the entire crew to join them. This will be Lenny's last chance this season to visit with his family and we are pleased to be part of the fun.
That is all from Dutch,
Capt. Monte "Wizard Mouse"
