Default Check this baby out!

It's behind me at my marina! It has since been re-powered with 1100 Man's.

I was poke'in around yachtforums.com and i tell ya some of those big yacht captains are pretty well compensated. Looks like a pretty good gig but it requires a great deal of dedication. Some of these captains only see the owners a few times a year and most of the time they spend up keeping the boats.

And they spend the rest of their time drinking and meeting women at the Dockside bars.

I can't recall the name but he lives in Deal and works in the Garment Industry.

You're right about hangin at the dockside bars, that's basically what the current captain does.... I've seen him recruit some pretty nice talent!

Years ago there was a guy who had a 60 something ft. Buddy Davis at the marina. We all got to know the captain pretty well. He said he liked the job but you were working 24/7, either taking people on fishing trips, maintaining the boat or driving up and down the east coast on the off seasons. He met a girl and got married, soon after he was no longer a captain and got a regular job..
