Default Finally, Weather Break...

The middle of the week starts a few days of mild winds...next weekend will be the first one in almost two months that both days are predicting less than 2' seas...

I have a new Rhodan that has never seen the water.....that needs to change!!!

Add one more day to your turnaround if you have reels in the shop....

Thanks for the heads up. Will plan to watch for next Friday trip. Will start clearing my calendar at work. Boat has not touched the water in 2020.

Here is what I am seeing....we will do a trial run on Saturday just to make sure I get the hang of using the Rhodan, and have my granddaughter, boyfriend and his dad all come out with us on Sunday.

This is for the west coast of Florida west of Pasco County...

Welp, so much for that plan. Buddy backed out. If someone out there is interested in going, PM me. I'd still like to get out on the glass tomorrow, just not solo.

I think my Gelcoat will craze/crack the second it hits the water! Ain't been wet in 7 months.
will splash but keep in cradle for 1/2 hr. Watch bilge pumps. polish fuel, wash.
Is this what Winterization is like? I feel winterized!

Went out noon Wed to noon Th with a fellow snapper killer.

The weather was absolutely awesome the sharks not so much in multiple spots. There was snapper on the menu though.
