The increasing complexity of modern fishing vessels and their equipment makes it difficult to keep up on the details of maintenance and operation. Terry Johnson, Marine Recreation and Tourism Specialist with the Alaska Sea Grant Marine Advisory Program, offers suggestions in this series of articles. Johnson has owned and operated fishing boats in Alaska for many years, and currently charters his 50-foot motor yacht in western Alaska. Articles are courtesy of Pacific Fishing Magazine. (Individual articles are also available online in PDF format.)
