Former Alaska Packers Association shipwright Steve Alaniz, l., and assistant Steve Ince fit a new yellow cedar plank to the Diamond NN No. 59 Bristol Bay sailboat. Alaniz brought the plank from the former APA cannery in Bristol Bay, and it is the same material the boat was originally made from. “It’s hard to get this kind of quality anymore,” he said.
