DJ: Before this all started I didn't have a ton of boating experience, but I wanted to. My family took a cruise through Alaska several years ago, and it was great, but the whole time I kept wishing I could get off the boat so I could go see more and experience more. I didn't like being limited by the cruise's schedule. As I started researching boats I really liked what Aspen and owner Larry Graf were doing. I reached out and we started putting this together.
