    I'm from up the road (AP) I know the Fry guy and his first mate. Went out and fished my IFQ with him a couple of times. I also fished the Inlet, sold out this summer.
    I'm in VA and bought a boat, a 43' Amphitrite, keep looking at where to put the poles and fish box.
    So what engine are you putting in?

    Not really personal questions. What's to know?

    Dear Captain 58:
    I can see that you work in the oilfield. Me too. I am in Venezuela and have been a directional driller for 31 years now. I was born in Luanda and lived in Cabinda until I was 17. My dad worked for Gulf/Chevron for 37 years in Malongo. The world is small indeed.
    Anyway, thank you for your contribuition to my thread about electronics. As I live in Brasil, I am subject only to Garmin old products and Raymarine costing 3 times as much as in USA. So I am looking to use Furuno or Simrad. My boat is a Trawler and I will try to have a simple, but decent set of electronics including a radar. The only issue that I have yet to figure out is about the Simrad NX40/45. I wonder if they can build up an integrated system to be used in two different command stations; Fly and Saloon. But I'll found out one way or the other. Simrad in Brazil was asked about it 3 months ago and up to now they haven't given me an answer...Thank you again!

    Thanks, its great to hear from you.
    I copied that avatar from the internet and I'm waiting for the owner (if there is one) to come and say "hey thats mine, thief!"
    I like your posts, you seem to have a lot of experience. I hope I can draw from your knowledge.
    Have a great day? night?

    I love hearing about other peoples plans so talk away! I've heard of Monk, I'll have to do a search and see. Congrats on your new boat she is definitely something to be proud of. What a great idea to be able to cruise and work at the same time. I'm a nurse so haven't figured out how to fit that in my cruising boat, but I do plan on medical missionary work wherever I go

    Great talking with ya,
