An old wooden fishing boat lies stranded in a shallow, frozen lagoon a few miles south of Wasilla, Alaska. She is the Nomad, and she has quite the history for such an unassuming and neglected little boat. Built in the early 50's by a man named Bob Matheson, along with his brother, she was purchased a few years later by the late Joe Redington, father of the world-famous Iditarod sled dog race. She served him well for many years before ultimately being drydocked in this small cove, left to slowly wither away in the mudflats of Knik Arm.
I really hope the Nomad gets saved and fixed up again. A boat with such strong ties to a part of Alaska's history should not suffer such a neglectful fate.
