Snapped this quick pic after work in Rye last week. Talk about a game changer! It was blowing 25, guy didn't even make it to the breakwall before he turned around.

Wonder if the USCG follows him around just waiting for it to happen? Bc its not a question of, " if" rather, " when". This guy needs to learn something about stability and QUICK!

Hes being very optimistic with that lobster tank. how many traps could he be fishing out of that boat? 20-30. a 5 gallon bucket is all he needs and no risk of sinking the boat

There is a guy up here that tuna fishes in a boat like that except he has some plywood up on the bow to knock down the spray. I've seen him out in October in some not so nice conditions about 10 miles out. He looks like he walks on water when you can only see his head above the waves. Had a friend call the CG on him and their reply was that they were not going out unless he is in trouble.

Snap a picture, as I am sure we'd like to see pictures of this whack-job in action
