Richard Sturgill and Michael "Jake" Jacobsen inspect a 1906-vintage Bristol Bay sail-powered gill net boat donated to Drayton Harbor Maritime, Thursday, Oct. 17, 2013 in Blaine. "It's in amazing shape for being made in 1906," said Jacobsen. "It's amazing it's not compost at this point. It's a museum piece that can still be used."
