“Turns out, far too much has been written about great men and not nearly enough about morons. Doesn't seem right.”
Ok. I think zounds is now eligible for the junk treatment. Impossible to converse with, makes very little sense and better to be ignored
One of the larger, good boats with, say, 11 crew can bring in 50k lbs in 3.5 to 4.5 weeks in August. August is your bread and butter trip really. This trip, Ill be very happy with 20k to 30k lbs in 4.5 weeks. We have 9 crew (so 4 speed boats).
As for depth, on the boat Im with, we dont really have any deeper than 40-ish feet. Most are between 20 and 35. Handful less than 20. Some boats have a few traps set up to 100 feet, but that **** is risky business and most boats here just arent willing to deal with the risk for a few extra $. Its so easy to get bent or just have some random **** happen on the bottom that all a sudden becomes a major issue at 100 feet.
So the initial reviews of The Counsellor aren't so hot which is a bit disappointing since cormac McCarthy was involved.
