Hans Hansen, skipper of the 105-foot power scow Deer Harbor II out of Juneau, walks around the boat Friday at a beach near the Sitka National Historical Park in Sitka. Hansen said he purposely let the boat go aground in order to change its zincs. He said he was unaware of any rules forebidding the landing, and was sorry to have caused any concern from park officials. He said the boat itself is historical. It was one of several built during WW II to transport materials to Dutch Harbor where the boats were put aground in order to be off-loaded and, in some cases, disassembled and used as building material.
