If your looking for a reel for an Invictas you would use the 30 or a 50.
IMO, a long range quiver is not complete without a 50 size reel.

When I'm on the beach all i think about is getting back out there.
Nice! I'm sure Steve is stoked. Is that his personal best?
How was your trip David? Catch any big ones?
Wow 500hp out of a 3208, I din't know that was possible.
I think his 375 hp's a kind of small for that boat, he should take your advise to up the hp.
This is why the Intrepid stayed tied up at the bait barge instead of heading south on their 15 day trip.
