—you want to beat the “high cost of living,” buy
your needs locally—it’s the key to your problem.
Count the cost of buying in the cities and the
solution will be easy: time lost, wear and tear on
your car, gasoline used, and the higher price that
you pay, quality considered.

Seattle and named it Mary Ann,
after his wife, and they followed
their dream of freedom to Alaska.
They went up in February, trav-
eling with two other boats. It
would be hard to pick a worse time
to make that trip. One boat was
sunk on the way up, fortunately
no lives were lost, but everybody

Their boat was kept in top-notch
condition, above average. As time
passed equipment was added until
they had a radio telephone, auto-
matic steering, and a fathometer.
This spring they were fishing for
Kings around Wrangell and doing

cockpit and worked the gear. Mary
Ann, in the pilot-house, watched
the fathometer and steered; into a
narrow channel on the Stikine
flats, picked up one or two big
Kings, wheel short around and go
out without losing any gear—
thanks to the fathometer.
