I wanted to take the boat out alone for a change. No one else to drive me crazy! I thought I would bring my camera and document as much as I could for your enjoyment. So, here you go!

EDIT: This was Sunday, 11-09-08! I must have just put todays date without thinking, and now I can't edit the title!


Heading through Starbucks on the way to the boat it was a frigid 67F, but being still early it should warm up more:

Here is Horizon Dreams getting a bath.She gets really dusty in the storage place so I have changed my habits from washing after use to a rinse after use and wash before use:

A look at my cockpit. You can see my stereo install. The cutting didn't go so well so I had to use lots of 4100!

A few miles from shore, I anchor for some fishing. In these shots you can see that the water was a bit rough, but it was worse than the pics show:

And with the sun a little lower, I decide to pack it in and call it a day:

Due to the following sea conditions, I don't take anymore pics until I'm back through the pass and in calmer water:

And all I did was go to work!

Great day, thanks for sharing. What did you do with the shark?

I let him go. I use circle hooks and pinch the barbs, so removing the hook is not a problem, plus the little guy was only about 2 feet long. The sail cat had unfortunatly swallowed the hook so I had to cut the leader :( However, since I started using circle hooks this was the first time I had a fish swallow the hook.

Thanks for the comments!

At least you didn't do that to something like a Carolina Classic or an Abermarle.:hammer

Sorry I couldn't resist.:kidding

About 18 feet. Its a spot where the chartplotter shows some variations in depth, which is about all I know to look for to catch fish. I am a special type of fisherman, in that I just love fishing. The way I see it, as long as I catch SOMETHING, I did good. I can't remember the last time I didn't catch anything. Everytime I've gone out I've at least caught a catfish or something, and that's fine by me. So far I haven't been keeping anything, but one of these days I would like to get the regs and keep a fish and eat it.

LOL! :)

I actually might cut out the whole dash section and replace with styrene or something so I can change around the electronics I want. I would really like to have my GPS/FF, VHF, and stereo flush mounted, but that will be a whole other thread. My next mod is going to be trim tabs!

CB,

If you want the radio and surrounding area to look better - get a piece of dark plasic, cut it a little larger than the opening that you have now and then cut out the din opening for the radio. when complete, the radio and additional faceplate should look like it belongs there. Black would probobly be good. This will cover the original hole due to being oversized and I think it would look great.
If not plastic, then get a piece of aluminum stock, cut your holes and then cover with a piece of black vinyl. Same idea but thinner. My dash panel is done this way and looks pretty good with minimal cost....just don't mind the fingerprints in this photo...

Wow!

You went out that weekend!!
You must not be from around here, huh?!:kidding

Not to long ago, I was on the Intercoastal and actually had a Police boat fly by me, and found out on the radio that a jumper had hit the water at the Skyway. So I hauled butt to Maximo where they pick up the "people" and the person survived!

It was a miracle!

Boat looks really good by the way, and I like what they have done with the newer models. I just got done rebuilding my carbs due to my boat being like Valdez fiasco ever time I trimmed her up or down.

Thanks for the pics and it's still boating season!!!!!!!! Go Grouper!

Gotta tell ya - looked like a GREAT DAY to me!

I'm just a little jealous tho' - it's 27F here in SC and I'm going to the boat this weekend to do all of pumping the holdiing tank and maybe buy some fuel -yippee (: there are adavantages to trailering!

Glad you crimp those circle hooks. We do too and it definitely improves both the survival rate and makes it way easier to release. Hope your weather stays good!
