At sea off Key West - Turban Burn

At sea off Key West - Turban Burn

There IS an interesting back story to this photo.... my custom built 40' charter boat was launched in November 1988 and a week or so later I hired an aerial photographer to shoot images for use in my brochure. That day I happened to have a "special" private (paid extra for a non-fishing Gulfstream cruise) charter with two middle eastern men, who had flown down from Miami with two VERY young and attractive "escorts" and when we were underway and they learned that a plane was going to shoot photos of the boat, at the insistence of both men, they all hid in the forward cabin while the plane made its passes. At least the scenery was pleasant! And the girls were bored to tears, with the two guys, that is, thankfully not the crew.

Year Round Charters

When I was active I ran all year long out of Key West. This was the last of six boats I owned and captained. Had this one built for me by the Bacle Boat Company, Key West. Retired and then sold my boat twice - first time for 7 years, repossessed it, resold it. 21 years later she is still working, docked at the City Marina. Looks fresh and new. Only things that have changed are that the day rate has doubled, diesel per gallon has tripled, and the fish are little wetter.
