Hi Guys
Now I know how White House leaks get started......they are all
strategically planned where this one wasn't
Darryl has been with us since December of last year and he is indeed buying the Constitution.
I will remain as captain and hold a small interest in the boat for a while.
I had other opportunities to sell it but I did not like the direction it would have been taken. I am confident that Darryl will continue the emphasis on customer service and making sure that people will be happy with the boat regardless of the fishing or weather. There are many boats at all 5 landings that feel the same way. They also run a great operation.
Same crew...Same policies...Same jokes out of the wheelhouse.
The last 8 years in Monterrey and San Diego have been fun.
From 1970 when I was a deckhand for Manny Silva on the Mascot at H and M until 2004 I dreamed of getting my 100 ton Captains Lisc. I never knew it would involve the Constitution. The boat was the 3rd item on my "bucket list" and I intend on doing some of the others...if not all of them.
I constantly remind my crew that we are getting paid to do what other people are paying to do......I have been truly blessed! It seems like every trip there is someone who confides that they wish that they could retire and do this job. The truth is if you really want to you can do it. Einstein said "if a man can think it he can do it"
Thanks to everyone who had a part of one of the greatest experiences of my life. I might even start fishing again!
Joe

Hey Joe,

I know this isn't good bye because you'll still be the captain on some trips but I just wanted to wish you all the best with the remaining items on your bucket list.

You are a true gentleman, and I have never met a more friendly and professional Captain in all my trips. You're the only Captain (that I know of) where anyone can call you on your cell to discuss upcoming trips. You ran ("run") a great operation where customers come first. I don't know of any other overnight or 1.5 day boats that offer hearty appetizers to the anglers on the night voyage to the fishing grounds. Lastly, I really appreciated how you would take the time to introduce yourself and get to know all your passengers.

Darryl (your "successor") exhibits the same professionalism and genuine companionship that you are famous for...and there's no doubt that Darryl will carry on "Capt Joe's tradition" aboard the Constitution.

Thank you for all the memories and great trips.

Best regards,

Paul

Always had a good time on the Constitution. Hope to see you on the water Joe. Stop by if you get in the area. Heh Don...you remember that calico? Marcus thought The JP was gone after landing a very nice WSB earlier, only to find out I was just ripped by a dog. LOL If my memory serves me right a certain pool guy was at the dock with a bleeding thumb after trying to lip a Butt. That put the cap on a great day.
