Hi John,

No, slips don't come with the boat here in Seward. We just put in over 100 new slips, though, and I'm 52 on the list now, down from 102 last year. I may or may not get one next year. We'll see.

It is hazardous here. In a couple of my other lives, I'm a search and rescue pilot with the Civil Air Patrol, and I am the primary driver/operator of our fireboat, the "John Foster", a Metalcraft Marine Firestorm 30. I did a week of searching from Whittier this winter when a medical evacuation helicopter went down with all hands. I got to know the area and the weather pretty well then.

Wally
