    The Nomad was built in the early 1950s by Bob Matheson and his brother. They used it for several years before selling it to Joe Redington Sr. and his wife. The Redingtons were looking for a fishing boat, so Joe Sr. replaced the cabin on board with a hold for fish. And used it for fishing until the day they dry docked it on the Knik Flats.

    Hopefully she will be saved sometime in the future. Until then the Knik Flats are her home.
