Often, a local boy will paddle out with some fruit or drinking coconuts to trade for some perceived treasure on board Katmai. We have traded everything from fishing lures, fishing hooks, clothing and cash (if they prefer) for what they bring, if we can use it and generally we can.

This of course means more children are on the way!
