I know this forum is a little slow these days but thought I'd update my WB peeps about the latest in my world... My uncle who was my dad, mentor and best friend passed away at 63 on July 2 and has been a great loss for me. I lived with him since I was 7 or 8 when he adopted me and later, the roles were reversed and I looked after him. He will be missed! I sold my boat and bought a house in my marina in Freeport, TX around Dec - January and I just closed on our new boat in Ft Myers, FL. I am headed over there for several 4-5 day trips to the Keys/Dry Tortugas before eventually heading home to TX around Oct 23. We searched a lot of boats and are really excited about the ride range and speed of this Cat boat, it has C12 Caterpillar engines and a lot of room with the 18' beam. Anyway, hope all is well, I don't post a lot, but I still read here weekly.

RampageWake,
Nice! Have you noticed much of a difference in the ride? What brand is it?

Thanks for all the kind words guys.

Chad_H, I have only ridden on it for about an hour and it was not very rough offshore so I can't say, it is a 46' Black Pearl Cat.
It turns like it is on rails, very different than a V hull that leans into the turn. They are putting my name on it today.

Hello world...

Thought I'd give a quick update as we completed our first fishing trip after getting the boat rigged out like we wanted. We took the boat last summer to the dry tortugas and hung around the fort snorkeling for a few days, then bounced around Key West and Ft Myers and what not for 2 months, flying back and forth from Houston for work. Finally got the boat home in November and proceeded to update electronics, repaint and fiberglass touchups, new bridge enclosure etc...

Finally got finished and had a weather window to run to the flower gardens and put the smackdown on some wahoo's with 2 bonus blackfin tuna to 25#.
Really enjoying fishing with my wife, she is becoming quite the angler / mate. Smile

I have an invite to poco, my capt (left in the group pic) is good friends with the Fondrens and won it several years back, but the tourney circuit is not really our forte. A ladies tournament out of Freeport is usually the only one we fish for the wives and girlfriends. Thanks for the bridge compliment, it was rather cluttered when I started!

i've fished the woot before - that's a blast!

when my bud got his electronics re-vamped, the bridge went from being super busy to nice and clean like that too. makes you wonder wtf designers were thinking 20 years ago!? our only issue was that they connected the radar display upside down, so that made reading it a bit of an adventure!

props to you for marrying a syrian refugee and teaching her to fish! Mr. Green

Haha, she's the fairest of them all! My buds always queue a Mideast accent and holler "show your face, show your face" ala burbon street, she's a good sport!

RampageWake,
If you ever want a marine biologist who forgot most of what he learned in college to come with, you just let me know

My house in cypress flooded recently when northwest Houston got 20" of rain in 12 hours, so I have been busy lately but snuck away this weekend...
