View attachment 1005144 Carrie and I pulled the trigger on a new boat yesterday. We are having a 32x12 catamaran built by ACI boats. Twin 350 Suzuki with dual props. Full width cabin. Decided to not go with walk around so we have more cabin room for those older folks and kids, and for winter Blackmouth fishing. We are super excited and it’s been a long decision making process. Had to figure out what we really wanted to be as fishermen. Age and health has started to figure into decisions. The run and gun 3-4 trips a week a probable over for us. Time to relax, enjoy our friends in Westport, and make Fishing fun again, and when we do run and gun day trips we might be a little more comfortable. Plus bigger dance floor for the stripper pole.
We decided on the name “Slap Shot” and yes it may have a Canadian flag theme color scheme.
Of course we will be approaching all float 12 captains to make sure Slap Shot meets or exceeds their float 12 standards.
Dang that’s nice!!

They’re having the offshore bracket extended further aft so they can unfuck the situation when a crew member inadvertently hooks into one of the Suzuki DF350s.
So just what are they having done to keep the deck boss from throwing expensive rods and reels right over the side ? :Beat_Them

@robodad on the Slap Shot, you drop a rod and reel off the boat you get a game misconduct, not just 2 min in the Penalty Box. The head on our boat is being renamed the penalty box. Got a sign maker working on signage as we speak.
Thanks to @wdlfbio for keeping everyone informed of our updates. My health has not allowed me to visit Port Townsend to see Carrie’s and my new build. I’m hoping to get up there soon. Wdlfbio has been nice enough to help us get updates out. ACI is building us a fantastic boat. With input from many, Carrie and I decided on some basic features and some pretty fucking cool features too. Gotta give credit to Laurence for coming up with the 1/2 tote idea. At first I argued against it, I mean who does a half toke? Funny how one letter can make so much difference eh?
