'A family that plays together, stays together' A group of Fishermen's Finest recently took advantage of time ashore to vacation together at the Greenbrier Golf Club in West Virginia.

Our primary port of call for the Gulf of Alaska Fisheries of Fishermen's Finest is Sand Point. Located on the Southern side of the Alaska Peninsula, Sand Point is about a days steam from Dutch Harbor and provides shoreside services for the American No.1 and US Intrepid during the months of April, July, and October.

Fishermen's Finest had the pleasure of visiting the Alaska Peninsual this past week, supporting the Bristol Bay Economic Development Corporation's (BBEDC) Career fair in King Salmon (Naknek), and Dillingham (BBEDC's headquarters). While we were there, we visited Sand Point, our homeport each year since 1986 for the months of April, July, and October.

We received our copy of the National Fisherman magazine in today's mail and there is a nice article about our flagship vessel, AMERICAN NO.1 and her role as a pivotal boat design in the American fisheries.
