Spring Cleaning Projects

The Florida sun did a major number on the RV clear coat making it look pretty shabby.  There is no easy way to fix that, at least that I know of, other than getting rid of the clear coat.  Three days and a dozen razor blades later;

 This is what the sunny side looks like.  I am going for the fish camp chic look.
Fish camp chic involves lobster in the Keys so what better way to make that statement and get rid of a rusty bunch of decorative metal work?  There are tasteful lobster work appointments inside also, which I may post in the future.

That takes care of project one, still a work in progress as all boats and RVs are.  Now for project 2.

This is a vintage Wellcraft V20 which next to the Grady Wet, is probably the wettest production boat ever built.  It is however a very stable fishing platform for bridge, back-country and near shore on suitable days.  I have a number of regulars that would like reasonably priced catching trips for those days that there is no boat really big enough for offshore.  I need to go through the hull to figure out just how big a headache this old girl will be, but I think I can lose the rail and windshield and have a pretty spiffy Po Boy fishing/bait boat that won't break the bank.  Anyone crazy enough to send donations will be credited with future Po Boy Fishing Expeditions(TM).

Marathon in the Florida Keys should be your next fishing vacation destination. Join us for charter fishing, fishing guide trips or our fishing 101 so you can fish on your own with better success.

 Tight lines,

 Capt. Dallas
