No telling what they were doing out there. I use my fish finder to locate shipping channels and drift away from them. I set one radio to scan and 1 to channel 16. I quit leaving any lines out because if you wake up it's probably too late and I have lost some good rigs to God knows what drifting for swords at night. No lines out plenty of lights and your good to go. Oh yea all the windows open ais alert radar alert sensitivity on low for the sonar and an alarm on there in case a whale comes up under the boat. This better not be illegal but if you can plan your drift and you have a light wind or some current and you can tell how fast you are going let's say you're drifting at 1.3 knots you can set your phone to have an alarm and save 5 hours and you know that you've traveled 8 miles you can make a really good gas mileage
Gotcha. So do you have any kind of storm radar other than your VHF alert? I was reading on the Gulf forum about another guy that does solo overnights on a big bay boat and he uses a radar alarm for stormfronts. I guess you can just ride them out in your cabin though while he doesn’t have much choice but to run from them.

How many nights do you typically stay out there at a time?

4 or 5 days I useually stay out there but the more you do it the longer you can stay it's kind of like an endurance thing. I woke up the other night and it was ffuked I just try to forget about it the weather has been real crazy you know at night there is rain and lightning and wind and sometimes when the sun comes up it's gone. I love to sit out there at night and look at the stars. I counted several UFOS the other night and you can see the milky way and everything. That radio is always saying something. The other day it told me to use sunscreen and drink cold bottles of water. I sit there for a minute thinking this radio is badass! I went in there and got a bottle of water and drank it... if you get a radio like mine on a hot day I promise its gonna start talking sh!t about "wear you a nice big hat today and drink some water" swear to god

That's insane on that boat lol. How do you keep all your ice from thawing out eventually in that hot azz sun ? Call a crew boat for ice trade for fish ? Seas were shit%y when I saw you out there last trip far from comfortable lol.
