CENTURY OF MOONLIGHT – The F/V Moonlight leaves ANB Harbor on the last day of 2009, under the last moon of the year. It was the second full moon in December, making it a blue moon. The boat was built in Sitka 100 years ago, in 1918. A story on boat building in Sitka is published in today's Sitka Sentinel. (Sentinel File Photo by James Poulson)
