  1. Metaphorically, obviously. With electronic aids, a bit of experience and lots of fuel anyone can still harvest over limit. Even without (bar fuel); just rape & pillage fishing mentality. My observation is unobjective, based on frequency of encounters with workups, dolphins, Orca, Kahawai, Brydes, etc from early 70's. The visual spectacle inshore is just not what it used to be. The cray "supermarkets" are gone or way harder to find. But you can still get cray.

  2. You've done a great job on your boat. Putting your heart and soul into a boat is a great way to make it a part of the family. I doubt you'll regret it.

  5. If the fishing industry has to fall over to restore the fishery over all species, so be it. It has been greedily exploited right back to the whaling/sealing days. Just come back from 5 day barrier trip. The gulf was a desert. Always an awesome experience, except for the pervading gloom of missing sealife. Missed the swell by a day , but went anyway. Skirted all the breaks at 3m contour, at speed. Least that was fun! Only boat we saw out East was a genesis (?) with a lone fisher, fishing all day. Holed up in Haro at night. Just wtf was he up to? Definitely a pastime

  6. Hello everyone, another newbie here hoping to get "cheap" 30-foot coastal cruiser topic firing up again. I know it's been done to death but who doesn't love pretending to boat shop. I'm personally probably 6-18 months away from being in a position to pull the trigger but would love to pick everyone's brains about boats. Looking for something 26-32ft following the above advice about something that has had some time and money already invested. Have reasonable experience sailing dingys but never sailed a keel boat, planning to get a bit of experience over the next year or so. Loving the loo
