The Transition and missing
By Victoria Canul Dunne
February 27, 2008
My husband, Michael F. Dunne, grew up on the waters of Southeast
Alaska -- in Metlakatla. Mike is a former Marine Corporal (1981-85)
a fisher, logger, sawmill worker and commercial tree-thinner.
In 2005 he received his bachelor's degree in Technical Management
which he added to his welding certificate and electronics A.A.S
degree. His Dad and Uncles are experienced with vessels, have
a healthy respect for the sea, and taught Mike well. He knows
how to ready a boat for sailing and was experienced in living
off the seas/beaches of Southeast Alaska, and if need be, could
survive off the same. Vern McGee grew up in Juneau, was in the
Navy, experienced in northern Southeast waters and graduated
from school with a degree in Marine Electronics.
Finally, in reference to the Feb. 27 article in the Juneau Empire.
There are a couple of corrections. Our last name is spelled,
"Dunne" not "Dunn" also, our boat was in
slip H-20 of Aurora Harbor located in downtown Juneau not Auke
Bay. These are small details but still important.
