Big big boats


For the past couple of days these guys have been pulling in.  They’re purse seiners and apparently there is a salmon season about to open here for them.  Tonight the are rafted 5 deep off the end of the government dock behind me.  I hope the wind doesn’t get up from the west because there’s no way in hell that finger was ever designed for that much load.  These are REALLY big boats.  It won’t hurt my feelings if I manage to leave before they do because there’s liable to be some degree of confusion if they all leave at once and there’s not much clearance between my new dinghy and the boats lined up behind me.
