Default Palm Beach Fishing Co. 100th Charter!

The PBFCo. has been in business in our new location with our new boat for just over 10mo (since April 26th 2013) and today we ran our 100th charter! For those of you who followed our posts during the process of moving our charter business to our new location in Palm Beach, and for those who patronized our business and trusted us to get it right, and to our employees who work hard day after day I would like to offer my sincerest gratitude.

Lots of bumps and bruises along the way but that comes with starting a new business. We had to look for a new boat. Looked at about 14 of them driving all across Florida. Put 28K miles on my car in 8mo. Once we found our Pursuit 3800 we took it from Marco Island across the Lake O waterway and over to Palm Beach to begin the refit. Refit took 3mo instead of 1 and costs 3X as much as expected. The boat looks new. Almost everything has been replaced. Motors were good and low time with 1200 hours.

We got the boat to Sailfish Marina right at the end of the busy season. Things were slow for the summer off season but we had business. Gave us time to work the gremlins out of the machinery which took some time. The boat is a tank. Day in and day out. Some days it takes a pounding but it's holding up like a brick shit house. Respect to Pursuit for building a hell of a boat.

We started turning a profit in December. January was busy. February was crazy. We ran just about every day in February! March... not slowing down yet. Had two 5 hour charters today. I expect another 30 charters before the end of the year (April 26th). Looking forward to an even better second year of business.

Here are some pics from our first 100 charters.....

Thank you everyone! We went from being "Don't talk to the new guys... they'll be gone in a week." to being the busiest boat on the dock. I wouldn't have ordinarily posted this if it weren't for all the haters and naysayers.
