Recently, before the Japan tsunami, we talked about boat casualties of a recent storm: three stranded Kodiak boats in one week
Here is another Kodiak boat, stranded on that same week.
Getting off to safety is priority one. Lots of thanks are given to the Coast Guard.
But if you are the captain or owner, your worries don't end there. How do you salvage what's left of your boat. That's easily a quarter or half million dollar stranded on the rocks.
And you have to worry about leakage of fuel. After the Exxon Valdez experience decades ago, the government takes a real close look at who is responsible for any spilled oil and it's clean up.
Now, do you get an idea of why it costs so much to buy Alaska wild caught seafood? But it's worth it in taste and in it's health benefits!
