    Bimini and isinglass being replaced

    He showed up again today with the canvas all done and took measurements for the isinglass he will be back Wednesday to finish up I’m thinking about getting Canvas window covers and maybe a cover going from my Bimini down to the Stern also.
  443. RodRage

    Dana Point suggestions

    Grab a scoop of dines n head to the Kelp along SanO it works well either slow troll or anchor up outside, Roughly 6 miles or so each way it would be a good shake down with a chance at a fish.
