Did my annual trip to fish Miguel with friends.
Got to my timeshare in Oxnard and my buddy who just took delivery of his brand new boat from Canada says come check it out. I tell him I'm gonna fish my 21 Parker and he says let's take mine so ....ok cool and off we go and my friend who lives in Santa Barbara takes my boat and meets us at Miguel. We met great seas good fishing on a great boat with good friends, hard to beat!
Gotta love San Miguel island not too many days you can even get to it!

Yep Friday was the day we were out there, it was super nice out but your right Miguel can turn on you in a heartbeat!
Funny the captain says to me I think its gonna be socked in fog tomorrow and I wake up on saturday and sure enough its completely socked in, i wish i knew the ocean like he does.

    Sweet sled, for sure. Giant dance floor!

    Love those fat cabbies, too. I take it you were fishing shallow - so fun. Looks like a pretty darn perfect trip. Miguel rocks!

    That's a sic rig. What power plants does he have in her ? I have never seen that paint color on a diesel.
    Motor is Scania?
    I had never heard of it before but my friend who is a diesel mechanic said they are the hot motor now.
    I guess they like to be ran at higher rpm
    Maybe someone here knows where their from or more about them than me?

    Is there a slammer (fish hold) on the boat?
