We are back in civilization now after another great season at Aikens.  Thank you to everyone who came to visit us this summer.  Despite the economic worries in our industry (as well as in most industries), the a fishing trip at Aikens proved to be too strong a "lure" for many people and we ended up being quite busy once again this year.  It's a testament to the quality of the "Aikens Experience", and we have our staff that thank for that! We are at the end of our 4 year run with our guide motors, so when we left camp earlier this week we brought with us our fleet of 50hp Mercury motors.  You can expect to see brand new engines on the back of our Lund Alaskan guide fleet next summer.  However, we are currently in the process of doing our due diligence so we don't know which brand of motor will be coming back up with us next spring, but you can rest assured they will be reliable, quiet, powerful, and as ecologically efficient as possible!

As you know, we have maintained them very well with regular oil and filter changes, grease, and because our guide crew is so good on the water all the bottom ends and props are in great shape! Specs: 2006 Mercury 50hp four-stroke engine Tiller handle Power tilt Electric start 13-pitch prop Please call/email us if you are interested in one or more of these engines (204-237-5253 or 800-565-2595).   Thanks, Pit & Julie Turenne
