    Man...this sucks.

    I just found out that one of the charter boats in our fleet, was on it`s way to Cuba this morning when it caught fire and completely burned to the water line. The crew and passengers were rescued after spending 9 hrs. in the water. Everybody`s ok, but shook up. You never know.....

    That's not good. Luckily they weren't too close too Cuba. They'd have probably been shot out of the water.

    I`ve been in the ocean, 20+ miles out (had to cut a rope out of a prop in 12 to 14 ft. seas one time. I didn`t succeed and came back on one engine. While in the water, you`re always mindful of big critters with teeth underneath you. They had to do it for 9 hrs. I`ll bet a few became friends with the Lord, fast. I`ll get the whole story when I talk to the capt. in a day or two. Not a fun day for them, for sure.

    My two phobias: Heights and Deep Water. I wouldn't have made it out there. I've been a good ways out in the ocean before. And everybody was just diving in. Me.....I stayed in the boat. I didn't even like being out there that far from land.

    I don't know I how I swam in the rim canals and rock pit ponds as a kid/teen growing up on Lake Okeechobee. You can't see a foot in front of you. And it's really deep. And you always see alligators around. Hell, we'd jump off the lockes and control towers at 3 am. Peer pressure. But even when we'd go out in the middle of the lake...where no land was visible in all directions.....it's only a few feet deep. No dice.

    I guess you do what you gotta do when it's life and death.

    I've read a few stories about people adrift in the sea for hours and even days, and almost all say the same thing....they're the most scared when waiting their turn to get out of the water and into a boat. I can agree with that.:cool:

    Sorry to hear the news.

    But, on a good note, I caught 45 Dolphins today. All in the 10-15 lb range but I brought in the Bull at 43lbs. nice fight!

    I hate the ocean.
    I won't swim in anything I can't see through.

    Bahamas, Jamaica, Caymans, those are great places to go swimming.


    Life doesn't get any better than this fellas

    Helluva day zonk. You saw a day of great fishing and I see about $800.00 worth of fish money.
    .....

    The dolphin have thinned out temporarily here but they`ll be back. One problem, is that the gulf stream is still about 50 miles offshore. They`re have been a couple blue marlin caught in the past couple days. Plenty of fish inshore to keep the tourists cranking. bonitos, cudas, kings, chicken dolphin etc.
    School dolphin are fun to catch on light tackle. I even come off the bridge to help the mate when we get into a school. I`ll always be a 1st mate at heart, I guess. I used to be good at working the deck but my old ass has slowed down some.

    Makes sense to me, Jay. Gotta keep your cool while in the water but your imagination runs rampant when it`s about over.
