Which one.............
History lesson.........started life as the Red RoosterII, then Pescador, then PT. Loma and now Islander. They have done a lot of work on her to make it a very nice comfortable boat. All the Ditmars got soul, that one has a storied past for killing fish.

Our group does a 6 day charter every year in October. Been fishing with Shane since he was running the outer limits. Very good tight opperation. The crew has been the same for years and is very professional and works solid together. Very fishy boat. Not one bad thing to say about it!

Who is Jason? :D

Anyhow, whether John or Shane run the boat, great captain either way. Crew was superb on the trips I made. food was good, I would go again in a heartbeat.

Jason's one of the deckhands with his ticket. He ran an overnight charter I was on last year.
