Stranded but not forgotten


On Aug. 16, my wife and I embarked on what we hoped would be an enjoyable day fishing for silvers on the Kenai River.

Upon launching at Stewart’s Landing, we pulled out into the middle of the river in order to motor downstream. However, to our dismay, almost immediately our motor started to sputter and lose power.

As I worked on the motor, trying to figure out the problem was, we proceeded to float down the river, sailing past boats full of fisherman.
