Indian, Alaska, man wins Bay Weld skiff in chamber raffle

An Indian, Alaska, man won a Bay Weld skiff in the Homer Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Center’s raffle of the 24th skiff built by Bay Weld Boats.

Mike Miller had the winning ticket drawn on Labor Day at Grace Ridge Brewery by Jack and Ben Engebretsen, the sons of Bay Weld general manager Erik Engebretsen and the third generation of Engebretsens who own and manage the Homer company.

The raffle was made possible by Bay Weld Boats, All Seasons Honda and Kokopelli Trailers.

“Homer is a leader in Alaska’s marine trade industry, and we are proud to have had the opportunity to showcase this made-in-Homer skiff,” said Homer Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Center Executive Director Debbie Speakman.

Chamber volunteers and staff sold 3,000 raffle tickets starting on Nov. 18, 2018. Proceeds from the raffle will support economic development efforts in Homer.
