    It's a far different boat than a quad outboard. Competition should be more along the lines of Viking and Hatteras. I'm not sure what happened to the pics? That was a lot of work! lol

    Why you should go slow @ night.

    You can be young and enjoy relaxation! I run my family friends' 60 Bertram up the line from Cabo almost every year and I do the entire trip at 8 knots (unless it's dead flat calm). Saves fuel, saves beating up the boat and you can relax. One negative thing is that you can get almost too...

    Why you should go slow @ night.

    #6 Slower speed gives you as well as other boaters more time to change course if need be. I've also found that a slower boat shows up on radar better than one doing 20+ knots. Really good advice Brandon, I wish more people would follow it. My family has banned two people to never set foot on...

    Dorado are awesome fish. I've caught them using a chunk of cantaloupe on a hook, a hot dog on a hook, a bare hook once and the best one was catching 4 dorado on the same piece of chamois that I tied onto the shank of the hook. When they are hungry they will eat just about anything!
