New member in North SF Bay CA

Post by Napa Mike » Fri Oct 01, 2010 4:12 pm

Hi all:
Just joined today. I was fishing in Ketchikan this summer and saw a trio of 29 foot ACB's. I've been researching on the web since then to learn about aluminum boats and stumbled on your forum. Great place to learn about real alloy boats! I'm 44, married with one 12 year old daughter. We have only been in N. Cal for a few years. Before that I lived in the pacific north west, and have fished Salmon and Halibut and crabbed around WA and Vancouver Island and a little in Alaska since the early 1980's. My Dad has a 21 foot arima, but we will be looking to upgrade to a larger, but trailerable, aluminum boat to fish between WA and Alaska when I retire or get tired of the California sunshine. Thanks for letting me on your forum. I will try to behave.

Cheers,

Mike

Welcome to AAB. Ketchikan has some fantastic fishing! I would love to spend a few months burning gas down there.
Spending my kids inheritance with them, one adventure at a time.

Thanks for the greetings. I'll try and upload a couple of pics. If it works, first is me and Pops with the fish we caught one morning in Ketchikan. The second shows the 20 foot North River boat we fished while staying at the lodge.
