Hi guys, thought I would introduce myelf. Steve Smith, been following this site a few years and love it. I own a 1995 26 General Marine, was the Grey Ghost and changed the name to Rudedog after Rudy my first APBT. We spent many of days fishing together and thought it only right to name my first DE after him.

Last year I sold my GM26 and loved it. Ironically it was Bantry which was kept dry stored next to Grey Ghost. Chasing tuna this fall with it?

Yes he was a pit bull. And a great dog!!!!

Shawn purchased the boat in spring 2010, and cannot complain the boat runs great!!! have a caught a few tuna since we got her! With it being so slow this year we have made a few trips out wo any luck! But this year I am in the middle of studying my ass off and preparing for a promotional exam at work in October. So I need to prepare more than fish this year unfortunately but I will be out there just not as much as I like!!!

Welcome

Boat looks great and looking at the picture, looks like it is at the old Browns Marina in NBPT. I grew up there and worked a bit for Wally Lysinski back in high school when not doing charters. Had lots of fun on the river and should not be here today with some of the stupid stuff we did as kids. Never knew jigging codfish in the mouth in November on an outgoing tide and NE wind was bad at that age. Promotional exam, do you work for the city by chance? Good luck on the exam and you will love this site. Welcome aboard and don't forget to post up.

Respectfully,

Dave

Congrats on the boat and welcome. Funny how things turn out. When grey ghost was for sale, I kept trying to convince my first mate/accountant to let me get that one. But she wasn't interested in a DE that looked so fishy (Isn't that what a DE's supposed to be?). I was pretty disappointed when I saw someone bought it. Wasn't much out there at the time. You got a real nice ride.

Sometimes those first mates and accountants just don't understand, other times they can be a lifesaver. You are correct, yes they need to be fishy.
