The Stabicraft “Alaskan Special” 2050 Boat Specs
4 pax max, 2 min pax (design rated for 6)
115HP – Equipped with 90HP Honda
0.196″ – (upgraded from 0.157″)
We are SO EXCITED to be able to offer these new rental platforms – Stabicraft is building Miller’s Landing 4 of these robust, simple, industry proven fishing platforms! We are starting with 2 for 2017, equipped with 4 stroke Honda 90HP outboards.
These boats are custom designed to optimally fish 4 people for Salmon, Halibut, Rockfish or Ling Cod. A non-conventional design, these aluminum chambered boats provide tons of reserve buoyancy, high sides, and wide gunwales.
The aluminum chambers act as the inflatable sponsons on a Zodiac, except they’re rigid. The wide point of entry and broad gunwales make for a soft, dry ride.
These boats will have a longer range than our existing fleet of rental skiffs. Operators can expect a boat orientation and vessel handling class, and trip insurance is required for multi-day rentals and reservations.
The range of the boats should be more than adequate to get you and your friends out and about on your own un-guided fishing adventure! We can provide salmon and halibut gear, landing nets, fish bats, bait – the whole outfit. While we don’t send the boats out with guides or with on-the-water fishing expertise, we do provide a general “how to” on the use of the tackle and fishing techniques. Have your own gear? Barebone boat rental rates available!
There are many pros and cons to taking yourself out fishing vs taking a fully guided charter. First of all and most obvious – the rental platform is not guided. You will have to work on your own to find and land the fish, though there are always people happy to help you filet and direct you where to process them once you get back to the landing. In exchange for this, however, you are not governed by the same fishing regulations of a charter vessel, which limit halibut specifically to a 4 fish annual limit, maintain harvest closures on Wednesday (as of 2016), and mandate if 2 halibut are harvested the same day 1 has to be under 28″. A person taking their own boat out can harvest 2 halibut of any size any day of the week with no annual limit. Also, you pay less – A full day combination charter for 4 people at $350 per person is $1400.00 before taxes.
A full day self-guided rental for 4 people is $900 including Halibut & Salmon Rods and Tackle (extra tackle will cost extra), which is a $600 per day savings before taxes!

Sites that were booked of course qualify for the 50% refund, sites that were not unfortunately do not.
In some situations a raincheck worth 75% of your reservation may be issued at the discretion of Miller’s Landing management instead of the applicable cancellation charge. If this option appeals to you please suggest this at the time of cancellation. Rainchecks are good for one year and may be used for activities, camping or lodging owned by Miller’s Landing or towards the cost of hats, tee shirts, gifts, etc. sold in the Miller’s Landing store or items sold online. For items purchased online the customer is expected to pay for the cost of postage. Rainchecks may NOT be transferred to another person.
A 100% refund will be issued for any activity that was cancelled due to weather by Miller’s Landing. Miller’s Landing reserves the right to determine weather cancellations. Rain does not constitute cancellations.
Please note: Miller’s Landing encourages only guaranteed prepaid reservations. Unlike many other states, Alaska has a very short tourist season which can make it difficult for us to rebook when we have cancellations without ample notice.
If you are booking a charter and lodging and your charter , water taxi or kayaking is cancelled due to weather you are still responsible for the lodging or camping reservations and the normal cancellation policy applies. All of our activities are possible during rain, so rain does not constitute a cancellation. Miller’s Landing is not responsible for vehicle break downs, personal emergencies, flight delays, health issues or other unforeseen hardships. We will try very hard to work with you but the cancellation policy will need to be applied if we cannot issue a raincheck or find an alternative solution that appeals to both parties.
Please understand that Miller’s Landing also incurs a hefty financial merchant fee from our bank for the cost of charging your credit card and again for the cost of refunding it, and there is also a cost involved for the time involved in processing and refunding your reservation in employee costs. Our goal when taking your reservation is to have a solid, guaranteed prepaid reservation. We strongly discourage the practice of making reservations without having an airline ticket or making tentative reservations. Thank you for your understanding.
