It has 370 yanmars. We are still trying to tweak everything, but we are really starting to enjoy her. Friday was a great day and we are looking forward to many more ahead. On Friday, the big fish we had on was truly a big fish. We had about 18-20 pounds of drag on at strike and pushed it up even more and the fish was not even thinking of slowing down. It is a great feeling sitting on the bridge yelling to clear lines because we have to chase the fish down. When you throw it in reverse with both engines going hard, it just puts a smile on your face. Unfortunately, after about a 10 minute, it was over with a pulled hook. But when you hear 80 pound test pinging and line coming off a 50 wide like it was in free spool, it just makes the day even better to know you had that kind of fish hooked. I want thank Tango, Mike Davis, for the help as well as others out in the canyon on Friday. What a day!!!
Dave Nice going!! Tripp said you had upgraded!![grin] Nice boat. I'm good to go anytime!! Nice fish Paul[excited]
