The Dream Maid is a true classic in southeast Alaska. It was “grandfathered” in after statehood, even though the was longer than 58 feet, which means it belongs to a very unique club! What other seiners are “grandfathered” in?

I'm loving life in Alaska! Check out my viewpoint from Alaska, as I go commercial fishing and skiing thru the land of the midnight sun. This is Alaska commercial fishing shown the way it should be, from fishermen. When, I'm not working on the high seas, I enjoy time with my family in Juneau, AK enjoying life, love and salmon in southeast Alaska


  1. Worked on that boat for quite a few years. Also Joe Lewis and I fished crab out of Sitka back around 1975/1976.
    Best boat I ever worked on.


  2. The number of grandfathered boats is dwindling, but I can think of a few. Taylor Maid, Vernon, Home Shore, Johnnie A (or B, can’t remember.)
