    My husband and I owned the Ossian A for several years in the 70’s and early 80’s. We purchased it from Bob Hodder as a handlogging boat. At the time the engine was a 1271 jimmy. It was built on the Nimpkish River for Crown Zellerbeck and it was named for the chief forester Ossian Andersen. My daughter and I will take a trip to Kelsey Bay to have a look at her again. She was one of the family. Many fond members. My husband is gone now but our days on the mid-coast with the Ossian A and our float home are wonderful memories.
