Re: Lagoon vs Seawinds Options (BBQ Grill)

Del, there are a few good fishing advice threads on this site also. Basically you need to troll between 6 and 9 knots. The bait runs on the surface about 150' behind the boat. The baits can be a lot of different lures and they are described in the fishing threads.

The Yellow Fin was the best so far. When we cut up the filet it was like a beef tenderloin. 5 guys spent 3 days eating it up. But the tuna kind of go down and don't fight much. The Mahi Mahi where a gas to catch and beautiful to see when they came out of the water.

Re: Lagoon vs Seawinds Options (BBQ Grill)

Grills are an option, there are quite a few manyfactures of boat Grills, especially from South Africa and OZ, but don't overlook the US models. typically the fish cleaning table mounts off to one side. We did use driftwood for years - difficult, uneven, and not worth the hasle, now we have some hickory chips (double bagged) which we use for that great smoke flavor.

I've heard Gunboats have really nice toothbrush holders... might be worth looking into them too...

You could be looking for lobsters while kiteboarding.

us cats

Still in production: Endeavor, Gemini, Maine Cat. Atlantic and Antares used to be made in the US but are now made in South America. Not in production anymore: Manta and Lagoon which made TPI boats here about 20 years ago. They are all good fairly normal cruisers except the Atlantic 57 which is a semi custom high performance cruiser and very expensive. Check out Offshore cats in Florida. They make slim and fast production 48' hulls and sell them on Ebay. They will build you the entire boat if you wish. BOB
