Tender Restored

The restored fishing tender Alaskan Pacific was launched at the Cordova boat haul out on May 8, after months spent by owner Mark Irving and others rebuilding the massive steel bow, galley and crew quarters of Bob Bernard’s legendary tender. The project employed several locals including Kevin Heisman, OJ Ganuelas and many craftsmen, surveyors and welders.
