NICE!

Last summer we went to the banks, but we went on a head boat (outta oregon inlet) ....didn't catch squat. Couldn't afford a smaller charter, maybe someday.

She definately is. Grew up spending her entire summers on the Sapelo river south of Savannah, GA fishing, shrimping, crabbing. Her dream vacation would be going Marlin fishing so she can hang one on the wall in the house.

Don't live near enough to water to warrant a boat right now, but anytime the subject of "what will we do when you retire" comes up it involves us being somewhere close to salt water, with a boat, and doing lots of fishing, crabbing, maybe shrimping and definately lots of cocktail drinking.

Now that's something to look forward to!

Forgot to ask... What are the specs on the boat? Make? Engines? What do you have for electronics?

Making out my shopping list to keep in the "new boat fund" change jar that I have going on the table where I hang up my keys and set down my wallet when I get home.

AHA! That solves it. Didn't think that avatar looked like a 35' side console!!

Only with boats do you trade up to a larger lady! Unless of course you're trying to win a bet with your teammates!

Both beautiful boats. Contenders are bulletproof and will get you home when you find yourself in the slop. Must be nice to have 2 hdgb.
