EUEGENE, Ore. — Paddling amid the gentle swells lapping between the Ketchikan Peninsula and various islands on Alaska’s southern coast, native Aleuts hunted from long, bone- and driftwood-constructed kayaks. The boats cut through the water like a sleek barracuda, sliding on the stretched seal skin covering of its structure. They called the craft a baidarka. It was so important, the Aleut considered the canoe to be a living thing. Peter Marquardt of Eugene has been dreaming of sailing the Alaskan coast — in his own baidarka — since high school more than 30 years ago. An AP Member Exchange by Matthew Denis, The Register-Guard.
