June 20th....Trips Next Week
Took a bit longer than I wanted, but we got it done. The engine room is finished and all we have left is the deck paint and hull. Diver Mike is coming down this Friday to give her a good once over and zincs. Bob and I should have the deck painted and finished by early next week. Hope to run a shakedown trip this Friday after we have a clean bottom. If all goes well, our first trip will be next week. Not in a huge rush...TONS of dogfish out on the grounds right now and I think with some increasing water temps and a change in the wind direction we will be all set. Trips will be mixed bag...targeting Cod but also fishing for Fluke and SB when the season opens...more to come.
