Way back when I was boy, I fished on this boat with my dad. Okay, okay, this is a model of the power troller Spring we fished on back then. My dad made the model.
From nine years old into High School, I slaved, er, worked on the Spring, all around Southeast Alaska and even off the coast of Washington state. Anyway, my dad sold the model along with some other models to the Tongass Trading Company and they now hang from the ceiling of the Tongass Dock Store in Ketchikan, my home town. It's always fun for me to go to the store and see the ol' Spring.
