Finn Slough Videos
David Kinney made a nice video called "Finn Slough" a few years back. It features a beautiful song called "Dancing in the Arms of the River" composed and sung by one of the residents here with some of our local talent also performing.

Eva moves through the drawbridge:
Al is bringing the fish boat EVA down from its winter cradle at Finn Slough for the summer. To get through the bridge to Gilmour Island it is necessary to remove five planks, so David is lifting the last one just in time. Hear that sound? It is the sound of EVA's classic make and break Easthope gas engine.
Al Starts the Easthope Engine in EVA
Al is starting the EASTHOPE two cylinder gas engine in the classic 1937 gill-net fish boat EVA. It is not as easy as you might imagine. The distinctive pop-pop-pop is a sound from the past. The first power plant in this boat was the 8-12 horsepower model weighing in at 400 pounds. In the nineteen-forty's it was switched to a 10-18 HP model weighing twice as much.
