I've known Dave Seaman since I first started coming to Homer in 1978. He pitched in on building my first cabin (a very rustic place in Kasitsna Bay).
I've made pictures of him, we've hung out together, and become more than just acquaintances. He's a great guy and lives up to his name! He's taught classes on boat-building at the Kachemak Bay campus of the University of Alaska, run the Kachemak Bay Wooden Boat Society for many years, and has done the rural mail run for the US Post Office, from Homer to Little Tutka Bay, for the past two decades.
Here's just one photo of him on the return from a mail run in December. Look for an upcoming story on Dave in the Alaska Dispatch News' "We Alaskans" Sunday magazine.
