    Welcome to the jungle - SA80

    Just curious? Covid 19 Breakouts on Sport Boats

    I’ve known about a dozen folks who have gotten Covid, ranging from asymptomatic to a deputy I attended some LEO trainings with in Riverside who passed. I have no doubt the sport boats are doing everything they can to keep things as safe as possible. They can’t afford another shut down. That...

    1.5 Day Offshore Trip Outside SCI

    Any captain wants all his passengers to bring home fish. It makes for better numbers and more ‘word of mouth’ reputation. That being said, I’d have told the passengers to get bait in the water, and directed the crew to keep the energy high. And it would have been FULL rotation on the kite.

    Small Streamin, New Mexico Style

    It is. Seen some amazing varietals here. The brew scene is one of the reasons we settled in here. Pretty outstanding options.
