    Well I am still alive! It was just plain nasty out there, The boat did well and ran dry for the most part. The down hill ride home was a breeze.
    Cabo, Yea that is surfside, And without danials help fixing the gremlins The trip would of never happened.

    Yo Wacker,

    How's it going? Coming back to Texas and fighting our seas makes you appreciate Panama. I gave it a try a few weeks ago and we turned around after taking a severe beating for an hour.

    I'll never forget around Christmas when I was in Costa Rica.The Capt left the dock in the bay and told me it was going to be rough once we hit the Pacific. My wife was with me and she overheard the Capt. She whispered to me something like "Honey, we're on vacation, I don't want to fight the seas all day. If I wink at you, that means tell the Capt to turn around". I said OK.

    Well, she thinks of rough as 6-8s 3 seconds apart. She went down in the cabin and put on her foul weather gear as she doesn't like a saltwater shower in a boat. After we hit the Pacific and were offshore, we both looked at each other and wondered why the Capt was warning us.

    The seas were probably 3-4s but twenty feet apart with zero white caps. I told the Capt that I pray for days like this in Texas. He told me it was rough for CR standards. Those guys have it made as far as sea conditions in CR and Panama. My leg and arm muscles are usually sore just from hanging on to the boat when fishing out of Texas.

    Glad to see someone was able to get to BV and catch some tuna. It's been rough. I'm going down this weekend to fish on a 42'. I think the other guys are more interested in playing poker and drinking than fishing. I have a gut feeling that the drinking and staying up all night playing cards will cause the boat to stay at the dock Saturday morning.:mad: I'm working on option #2 just in case that happens.

    Actually, plan #2 is another boat.:) I'm not worried about the Scotch inventory. It never runs dry if I have anything to do with the purchasing.:)
    The guys I'm going with are big Grey Goose martini drinkers. I'll belt down a few before switching to the Scotch.:D

    A Manhattan is a great drink if you prefer Bourbon. I really don't like Bourbon. I also don't like Vermouth in any drink, even a Martini. I'm also not into any drink that uses a cherry. So, strike Manhattan's off my go to list.:)

    I'm an easy guy to please. I like my cocktails to be simple. All I really need is the bottle (Scotch) a big glass or Styrofoam cup and some ice. Water is nice as I like it half and half. But, ice melts if no water is around.:D

    I hate setting up for a party. You have to buy soda, tonic, coke, sprite, cranberry juice, limes, lemons, beer, wine, etc. You need shakers, knife, cutting board, blender, cherry's, napkins, etc. If most people were like me, it wouldn't be a PITA to set up bar. I don't mind beer heads because they just want it cold.

    No cell signal? Shit, I am moving to Panama just for this reason alone. You may have to push me out the door when I visit this summer.
