Fall Hours: Monday - Saturday: 8am-5pm Sunday 8-4
October started off with sunshine and warmer temperatures... but that didn't last. Ketchikan felt the effects of Pacific Hurricane Oho receiving 7 inches of rain on October 8th and that was followed up with wind gusts up to 80 mph. High gust in the protected cove was 70 mph. By Sunday, October 11th, the wind calmed down to 30 mph and our rain gauge recorded 11.4 inches of rain in 4 days. We had dock damage to two sections and several customers helped us prevent further damage. Luckily no one was hurt! We will add fixing the dock to our winter projects.
Other winter projects include re-powering the Hot Wire and new bottom paint for the Rachel Lee. The Hot Wire will have also have new canvas put on by Tideland Upholstery. Timber and Marine will re-power the Hot Wire with a Suzuki 115hp and Suzuki 9.9hp. Kevin has sanded the bottom of the Rachel Lee and will put on new bottom paint (when it warms up). James was busy in October and November with oil changes, winterizing motors and putting skiffs away for winter. We left 4 skiffs in the water for rentals in winter and early spring.
We had another rock wall built in the back of the parking lot. This will help with drainage and adds more space for our trailers/skiffs... plus it provides additional parking for our employees in the summer!
Be sure to stop by for a new tide book, new fishing license or a 25 cent cup of locally roasted Green Coffee Bean coffee!
