    For me, it is the lounge area on the Polaris Supreme...sit down to bullshit, or read a book without having to get out of a booth when somebody inside wants to get up...comfortable seating. Good place to sit and wait for second seating at meals...gets chilly out on that deck in the wind sometimes...just very convenient. Same on the RRIII, but that boat isn't on my go to list.

    Agree, having a place where you can get out of the wind is really nice.

    One short range boat that has a really good reputation... I rode it once for a full day trip and it was a good trip fishing wise but I probably won’t ride it again just because there was nowhere to sit down at all in the stern area and the boat doesn’t allow anyone up on the second floor deck. It just wasn’t a comfortable or fun experience from the afternoon on when people were getting tired but still wanted to sit outside or get out of the wind.

    For me it’s the Spirit of Adventure. Sitting inside all the way by the front windows of the boat, relaxing making a drink or getting out of the sun for a little bit. There’s so much room inside and with only 20 guys, we all can sit inside and enjoy our meals and joke around, yeah I’ve become real spoiled.
    Plenty of tackle storage on deck and upstairs with bench seating to boot. I especially like sitting on the deck with my own chair smoking a cigar, drinking some beers and listening to music. Is it October yet???
    Oh did I mention Mike and his crew?? Along with Bubba and Jeff in the galley! Top notch guys and always fun to hang out with and talk too.

    X2 for Bryan and his team on the AA. Great bunch of guys with a great vibe as soon as you get on the boat.

    I ran into Brian and Ray with the family the other day when we were down walking around by the landings. They had just pulled the bot out that day and took us back to take a look at it. Pretty cool gesture by them. They knew I had just booked my oldest with them for his first long trip with me in Dec so it made his day even at 22

    The best feature i appreciate on the Intrepid is the fact that they do not nickel and dime you for permits, fuel surcharge etc. I used to fish one of the other big boats and finally figured that after getting nicked and dimed at the landing the price wasn’t that much more.

    I also appreciate the fact that the satellite phone is completely free. No charge at all.

    Lastly, I appreciate the fact that the boat has plenty of electrical outlets in the galley.

    Over the years I have fished most of the long range fleet. In the last 10 years most of my trips have been on three boats; The Excel, Intrpepid and Royal Star. Not only do I really like these three, I like every boat I have fished, all very good. With that said, here’s what I like best about each of my three favorites.
    Excel: I love the entire operation, how it is run and really like the boat as well.
    Intrepid: Space to fisherman ratio is unbeatable. Most comfortable boat. Fantastic food. Really a luxurious ride.
    Royal Star: Tracy, Randy, Tim an Brian. I think Tracy is the best in the business and I am thrilled to get to fish with any of the three captains.

    Would ride the Intrepid for the food alone. Brian Torres and Chasen Keller should be giving food clinics to the other boats because they are setting the Gold standard at the moment. You won’t eat previous nights cake passed off as a snack or worry the slightest about having chips and goodies out all day, not just a pile of candy. Go for the food and stay for the fishing.
