Lumpy seas and all hands woozy for half the day. Had to build a fish cleaning tray, as the boat has a backbreaking cleaning board with nothing to hold the fish (like a cleaning tray), so you spend most of your energy wrestling the fish, just trying to keep it still. This is a fiberglass boat, and unlike a wood boat, there isn’t a lot of scrap plywood and dimensional lumber aboard. Luckily, I found a couple 2 x 6 pieces and scraps of 1 x 4 and made a workable tray, with an immediate attitude improvement. Day 1: 35 king, 89 coho, 9 ling, 1
