18' Bayrunner, but I like the American Angler and the Red Rooster III
Take a look at the Surgeon's knot for this.

You are talking about a spectra to fluoro connection. He is talking about mono to fluoro. I prefer the John Collins knot in that application. Much easier and you don't have a knot around the spectra. Those knots tend to hang up as the fluoro leader diameter goes up.

Sold the boat, now I just rent a stateroom on the EXCEL
Surgeon knot for similar / same line diameters.
Uni to uni if tying different line diameter (as in heavier leader)
