    I disagree, the difference between a 21 and 18' boat isn't much, hell a 25' boat you still gotta pick your weather days going offshore, and a 6 cylinder will pull an 1801 no problem, i think the dry weight is 2200-2400lbs, and totally doable catalina and coronados for sure.

    Braid is a must if you want to fish lighter tackle, the current gets going and unless you want to fish tons of lead you should fish 50/60 lb braid. Spreader bars just get in the way, we just tie our own dropper loop rigs with circle or J hooks and 80 lb mono. Glow or white grubs or hootchies...

    Not a report, looking for advise on Peru beach fishing

    Wife and I are headed to northern Peru and want to do some beach fishing. Anyone ever been there done that, looks like there are lots of fish within casting range but a little knowledge would help. Thanks

    As far as a trailerable boat it's amazing! If you are talking about owing lots of money and not making much, yes the american dream.

    WOW the 31 is for you guys???? Insane!!!!!!! Not a ton of interest in my rig so I will put another 500 hours on it next season. Is Johnson Hicks rigging it? If so I'll go drool on it.....

    Cool thanks Koy, I will gladly keep it if it doesn't sell. I was just trying free up some cash to get a little skiff, might end up getting one and having two boats. I'll keep my eyes peeled and say hi next time.

    House is bought, it's all good. If I don't get a good offer I will fish the shit out of it next season. The house is a better investment for us at this point...... Not in a rush to sell....

    I got a 19' Albi from Davidson, I love it but would put a bigger motor if I was to do it over again. A 16 came up in more bay CL a few months back with a 90 suzuki super clean, I think it sold...... I looked for mine forever, then got married and some deck space and a cuddy were needed.

    Funny fish Story....the PB Harbor Halibut that got away

    I've seen um open a cooler flop around and out of a boat gone. You are kind of asking for it putting it on a stringer, halibut are strong and will come alive after gaff shots and bats to the head. Not trying to be a dick, next time hit in head pop a gill and put on ice(in the boat). And...

    Anyone here tried buying a boat from east coast?

    Yup twice! shipping is the only pain in the ass. You can find awesome deals over there...... I bought a new boat once(no survey) and another I felt comfortable with the dealer and rolled the dice got a great deal on a 2120 parker.

    Want to buy Radon, Anderson, Wilson, Parker I've checked this thing out it's pretty cool, older volvo diesel 94 i believe with 200+hours.... I'm sure if you waived cash in his face he'd jump on it, needs a few odds n ends like railing and electronics.....
