On June 1st, we will make our way to Alaska. We still have a couple weeks open, but we’re almost fully booked. In August we’ve invited an Italian chef who will delight our guests with an Italian culinary-themed trip. Our guest is from central Italy (Milano) and likes to cook with a southern Italian flair. We are looking forward to lots of seafood cooked Italian style, and of course paired with some good Sicilian red wines. This is the first time we are offering this, and we are looking forward to this new experience.
The new boats have been delivered to Washington and loaded on the Charter boat. Last minute items are being loaded or being prepared. We’re installing a new camera system for the engine room and public areas to keep track of everything and everybody. We’ve purchased some new fishing gear and supplies, so those will be available for use this year. The boat heads north on June 1st. I am looking to catch the boat on the 6th, and fish as we work our way to Petersburg and Juneau. Hopefully, a better year for Kings in 2009.
