Toro - I saw your boat at block island last summer. It was among the purple pink and yellow hulled sportfishing monsters but I admired your pointer more than them. Lol!
Loved it! I had a 19 seaway that I sold and certainly miss having now. Nice boat!
thanks for the compliment !
... i was on beach shuttle assignment that week, fluking duty, night squid trips, casting at bass on the south side...she was a busy boat that week! we towed it out there on its own bottom from norwalk.
Your a gentleman and a scholar!
Yup. The way that the westpointer lays at rest is exact as this boat, (if I hadn't burdened her with an F90!) And the turns in the bilge floor look familiar.
While in Cape Porpoise with the boat once , one of the retired Daggets advised that I remove those fwd spray rails or "dig like a rapala lure" next time she gets caught outside in weather. Of course I forgot about that until this moment. Now that I remember I have to decide. What do you think, Mud?
LOL, "dig like a Rapala lure" catchy saying to be sure but not authentic enough. They were making the Pointer long before they were making the "Rapala" My feelings are the spray rails will do what their suppose to, keep the spray down. If / when you stuff the nose you'll know enough to slack the throttle, and she's light enough and has enough boyency to come up quicly.
So i say no problemo, lest ye be coming through the Canapitsit channel with an outgoing and 30 Kt. from the SW. you'll be good.
Nice! How often do you make that trip with boat in tow? Norwalk is my old stomping ground from many moons ago. I'm glad to have a slip in the Mystic area nowadays because we tend to hit BI rather frequently.
We 've done it like that twice now with two different boats. first time we did it I was tipped off that there were football bluefins just clear of the race so now we always will troll there regardless if its around that time.
if I can't come up with a more interesting itinerary will do that trip again this year.can't swing more times than once a year like that. will trailer from point Judith launch though too.
how about you? Is that a 25 nauset?
Close enough. It's a 24 Coastal, formerly the Nauset 24 and now the Tripp Angler 24. I have seen those footballs in action on several occasions, usually when I have no time to fish. Funny how that works!
