Re: 24 Almar S/R

Thanks for sharing the fish Pics. I missed Bob on the 3rd--but we did not arrive until late in the day. we had 20k winds the until the morning of the 7th--so it was slow fishing. We did make it out to Swiftsure--and I had to convince Pops he could not join the big group of boats we saw--because they...

Re: fishin for buts

Hey Adrian:
I did see where we could get a Canadian fishing license on line and print it out on our end. I was not sure about heading straight back home after taking some fish . . . would we need to actually pull in to a BC marina before we went home?

Cheers!

fishin for buts

I'm sitting at home today, wishing I was fishing. But, small craft advisory means we stay at the dock for the last halibut opening. We did manage to get out for the mid-may halibut opener and got two. Here is me and Pops with one around 28lbs.

Re: raider 2484 question

Harcher: We got a 24 foot riverhawk alloy boat a year ago--so it is somewhat similar to the raider--perhaps slightly heavier. Our previous boat was a 21 arima and the riverhawk was a big step up for us. I think you would be happy with a 24 alloy--compared to your current 20 footer. you are welcome t...

Re: Need ideas on tackle organization

I don't know if it will work for you--but we have a carpeted dashboard. We stick clear, single-layer plano boxes to the dashboard with velcro. it is slick. You can change out the boxes depending on your target species.

Re: Nomad marine kits ?

Hey Guys:

J Simpson has plans for a 21 Cat. It has a cabin--but I would guess it is not a huge endeavor to remove the top. He is not too far away in BC.
A link to his site is below.

it will probably sell in the high 50's and maybe even low $60k range. my 2 cents based on looking at boat over the last few years . . .
