550 for 2.5 hours, is it me or is that a little on the steep side? One of the charter rigs I worked on charged 650 for 6 hours fishing ( tips not included), more power to'em if they stay busy!
Its the whole country, maine, ohio etc, shit every time i go into los anchorage i wonder does anybody work !! Lets leave the political shit out for the most part we're all like minded on that(some more than others). If the guy can get the money for a boat ride thats great, if its to much he'll figure it out quickly i hope.
