I thought this would fit in perfectly with the group here at Hunt Talk...


Spent the last two days at a nearby Forest Service cabin instead of working. A group of us volunteered to fill the wood shed and clean up around the place. For a couple free days off (paid of course) it sounded like a good deal.

Apperently our bosses wanted to make sure we were actually out there, so they came out to check...

and in fine form.
Guess they weren't impressed, and decided to leave.

BW.. Just curious on the swamping of the boat? I know you have big tides up that way but the water looks pretty calm in the pics. Someone leave the plug out or what? :confused:

My buddy had beached this little boat a bit after the morning high tide. He tied a line from the bow to a log above the tide line. Knowing that there would be another high tide around 11:00PM, and that the boat would be floating, maybe swinging around hitting nearby rocks, he set his anchor off the stern with some slack to account for the rising tide.

He didn't set enough slack.


So when the tide came up the anchor line off the stern held the rear of the boat down either enough to hold the transom slightly underwater, or so close to the water than the waves filled the boat.

There's techniques to avoid this, and he messed up.
We got it floated and running again though.

Finally!!! I'd just about given up on ya Moosie! But, I knew you couldn't resist a bunch of guys mooning their bosses.
I still recall your picture with the TINY pot covering your family jewels. :D

Oh, that's Kruzof Island. It's actually a very cool, and fairly large island which is completely uninhabited. There's only brown bears there, and some big ones too. It rarely, if ever, get's mentioned in any hunting publications.
