    That is a legit skiff. Tiller steering, wood sole, great joinery in that box by the king's head...

    Very nice! Heard on the radio a couple weeks about about a King Fish bounty for a one over 50 lbs gets $1000.00. Charter buisness out of Marathon put up the bounty.

    That's a very nice looking skiff.. and an eye popper of a King. Do you smoke your own, or have the Restaurant in Marathon or Fish Shop down by Summerland? do them for you? We have had them smoked at both places. Did the "get 1/2 of it back for smoking it deal" Made our own fish dip. I think that Kings make the best smoked fish dip that there is.

    We won't be down there again until next December. If we get some Kings, I'd like to see if you have the time to smoke them. The variety of woods that you use sound interesting. Little torch will be our home for 3 months, so we could run them up to you very easily.

    Pilchards are pretty much jumping in boat. Very thick. All sizes too. Some days they are deep some days they are shallower. When I say deep I mean 4 ft lol. When they are shallow you can walk to them

    Piner, That is one awesome looking skiff. I really like it; however, the 70s are calling and they want there jean shorts back.
    Great catch.

    Excellent reply..... A great job of capturing our past! A trip down nostalgia lane.

    and I believe that the USPS does have time warp capabilities.
