And all you guys thought it was only another captain out of seaforth who missed the mark with his boat.You have to give them credit for a shot NASA would even have trouble getting right.....right into a cave!It probably saved them,because most other spots down there and the boat would have ended up in pieces?

Considering they were not in danger as the article stated, I wonder if this is something Boat US would have handled

That was me calling as I sat on a little patch outside. One person said go for it , then I'm guessing it was him giving the spill about being out all day with no fish , etc.
I chummed for a bit for nada, then found fish to the west a few miles .

They had a lot of fish. A lot. Wee never really got on top of the past and the fish were under it. We chummed up a school for a few, but they went back to the paddy for the chunk. We gave them 40# of ice. I guess they slipped into cave at low tide.

He said his proximity alarm would wake him.

We sailed through the debris field of the boat that hit the Coronados 6 or so years ago during the Newport to Ensenada race.

These two are f'ing lucky.

I guess the atrium cave is in the reserve, so no lobsters. It faces SW, so coming up from the islands does not figure.Would have to make a right turn, in the swell.

Once again a boat operator with no regards to other boaters , turn on the auto pilot abd get some shut eye , it was a nice looking rig , Coronados to san diego bay is a hour max and they couldn't stay awake for this little journey ? Its a good thind they ended up in a cave instead of T boning another vessel, I hope their days of operating a boat is over at least no one was injured,

The young one is a deckhand on a well known cattle boat...

That makes sense. That kid was a fish catching machine. The fish were hung under the paddy and their boat. When I gave them ice, they had a large pile of chunk.

He was sneaky throwing tuna and YT on the deck. Never lifted his rod.

I'm glad they made it back with a scratched boat and bruised pride.
