Yes I encountered a $40.00 fuel surcharge aboard a boat that shall remain nameless. Now here's the kicker, after signing in and meeting our fellow anglers and already making friends, an announcement through the loudspeaker of the boat follows as such: we are going to have to cancel tonight's trip due to mechanical problems and are very sorry, please Come get your money back. In utter disbelief the galley erupts in mild turmoil as we try to absorb what has just happened. Now that most of us have been drinking since 3pm as we waited dockside for our loading time at 8, needless to say: driving home was not an option. As we gather our belongings and head back through the galley I hear another voice come over the loudspeaker and say: "We are not going to apologize again if you want your money back come get it and keep your mouths shut" Appalled at what I just heard, I decided I better get off the boat before I say something I might regret.Never mind the 18 hours some drove, the fact that most of us were stranded drunk looking for a cab and somewhere to sleep for the night, the days of work people had taken off to fish, gas money wasted driving to San Diego, and not to mention the weeks of prepping for nothing; and this B$#*h can't handle 3 minutes of guff from anglers? She should have been apologetic all the way till we left the dock, no matter if she had to tell every angler sorry 5 times each, still a minuscule task compared to the situation most of us now were in. Couldn't believe what I just heard!
