This past weekend, a crew assembled to raise the sail on a traditionally restored Bristol Bay double-ender.

The boat was part of the Fourth of July parade in Homer but the plan is to sail it back to Bristol Bay where it served as salmon gillnetter in the early 1900s.



Bay Welding

Seldovia District high tide on Tuesday of this week crested around noon and with it came a celebration and launch of the Goldbelt Seawolf, the largest vessel ever built in Homer.

The 74 foot catamaran splashed down into Kachemak Bay from Northern Enterprises vessel launch and boatyard. Bay Welding constructed the Goldbelt Seawolf. In fact, it was built entirely in Homer in less than a year. The vessel weighs 94,250 pounds and is filled with the work of the many Homer marine trades.
