The Wet Dogs have finally made it to
Kodiak. After being waylaid in Anchor
Point by mechanical problems and rough weather, the group of five-jet skiers made it out on Sunday, after separating water
from their gas and replacing damaged fuel injectors.
Team leader John Lang said the group
made it from Anchor Point to Port Williams on the southern end of Shuyak Island
Sunday and stayed the night, before embarking on the leg to Kodiak.
1 15 sec. "We
ended up staying at ... eight o'clock
said the ensuing journey to Kodiak was not without its own glitches.
2 50 sec. "Boats ran good until we ... try to get a new battery for it.")
If all goes as planned today
(Tuesday), Lang said the group intends to leave Kodiak at about 8 a.m. tomorrow
(Wednesday) morning and head for Old Harbor, beginning a trip around Kodiak
Island and stopping at the villages along the way.
3 12 sec. "Then we would go on to ... stay the night over.")
From Kodiak Island,
the Wet Dogs will head for Alitak
Bay. Their final destination is Iliamna, after rounding the Alaska Peninsula.
