A new boat yard by Leader Creek is quickly becoming a hub of activity in Naknek. Owned by Dave Lax, LMI Boatyard now boasts the cheapest gas in town, a food tent, a health clinic soon to open in its new facilities, and now, there's wireless internet. KDLG's Hannah Colton spoke to the owner of the new pay-per-use Wi-Fi system, Networx Portals.
