Default OSO a fishing site???

Just checked the classifieds.......9 on the last 10 photo ads shown are of center consoles. I thought I had logged onto "thehulltruth" for a second.

You're part of the Problem - not the solution...

Those guys actually go "offshore". They don't hang out at waterfront bars telling stories all day!

ROTFLMAO!!!!


On THT a couple weeks ago there was a post "why are they called offshore boats when I never see them offshore?" (as you know these guys run 50-100 miles out)

I replied we only fish for two-legged tuna" and they aren't found in water over 4 ft deep.

LOL, you beat me to it. On any given day, I guarantee that you'll see a whole hell of a lot more folks fishing "offshore" in their CC's than performance boats.

I don't live near the ocean, but I probably cover 75-100 miles on an average day on the water.

I guess other than fishing, there is no reason to go miles "offshore" unless you are going to an island or some other destination.

Oh, and BTW, I do fish off of my boat occasionally!

Ya. It's an ominous feeling. The first time you first realize you could be in a lot of trouble should something go wrong is a humbling moment.
