Another trip turnaround doing a week’s worth of work in a day and a half. Sold our catch at the dock to Juneau customers, hauled the rest of our fish to our fish processor to ship orders out of town, call customers who had fished shipped to see that they recieved it in good shape and are happy with it, respond to numerous email inquiries, send some website updates to my webmaster (we’re now Kosher!), talk over plans to with my processor to service a large coho salmon client in Juneau, ship orders of canned salmon to our natural food store outlets, send billings for last week’s shipments, fill out a fish ticket for last week’s catch, check in with our poor bookkeeper, buy groceries, change the engine oil, get more ice, and leave town again. All in less than 2 days. Sure happy to have my wife back home helping.

Still losing a little tranny oil, but luckily my mechanic walked by. He gave me advice on what to check, and I loaded him down with a fresh king salmon for home. His son is working in his shop now, after 4 years in the Navy. He told us about his son working down in the bilges of aircraft carriers with bilge up to their waists. Nastiness…
