Thanks, cool thread
Great pictures, I used to fish on the Q and love seeing the pictures of it. I have some great memories with my IB homeboys on that boat. I think I remember you. You used to have a 23' Parker? My buddy Jigs had a 25' and I had a 23' CC

Dang dude, your pictures are bringing back a lot of memories. I remember Rodney was the second behind Jeff. I remember Jiro as a wild & crazy guy and Armando got on the boat late in Cabo.

3-day trip, BFT up to 200lbs

I was on this three day trip with you guys back in the early 90's wide open on the jumbos. No 2 speed reels, guys were getting spooled in second with 4/0,s. Smallest was 190 biggest was 223. Nothing like it before and nothing since until the last few years. A lot of good captains came from that boat.
