    VERY NICE BOAT AND GOOD LUCK WITH HER. WAY BACK I FISHED ON A FEW BRUNO STILLMAN 42's SUCH AS THE THE ANNA R WITH CAPT FRANKLIN RATHBURN AND ALSO WITH CAPTIAN JOHNNIE WADSWORTH ON ONE THE SUNBEAM FLEET BOATS. BOTH OF THESE CAPTAINS WERE GREAT WIRE LINE BASS FISHERMAN AND HELPED PERFECT THE PROCESS. THOSE 42's WERE VERY ECONOMICAL RUNNING BOATS THAT CAUGHT MANY TORPHY LINESIDERS. Captain Jay Mulligan

    Good friend had one out in Montauk....fished everything from porgies to giant bluefins. Took that boat through all sorts of weather and always came through w/o a scratch.
    The boat went from Montauk to Florida(was sold) and lost track of it. It popped up on DEBF as a beautiful refinished commercial boat down in the Islands.
    It was called Daring Game... I got in touch w/ the owner and gave him as much info as I could about the boat. The present owner was supposed to send me a tee shirt that I was to give the previous owner but it must have gotten lost in the mail.
    Anyway, good luck w/ your Bruno and PLEASE post some pics .
    Thanks......

    Mike, I realize that. Was trying to tell Jay that Ben's last name is Rathbun, not Rathburn.
