Howdie. When I was living in the San Diego area, we always felt that Northern California started at the S.D. County line. Now that I'm at the other end of the state, it seems that Southern California starts at Del Norte (the t is silent) County line.

Anyway, I bought an HBI 18' rib with a Yamaha 115 on it from a fellow diver and spent most of the last year giving it some TLC. All the information that I needed to work on the various electrical, fuel, outboard, hull and trailer issues were obtained from your posts.

I can't say how much I appreciate the help from this site. Thanx.

Welcome!
Nice setup and looks as though you have a nice beam on that rig.
Hope you get some bugs!
cheers Dal

Welcome! nice look at a single observation. If the motor is clockwise then the backup motor must be mounted on the other side

Thanks for the welcome limeydal. It's been the better part of 30 yrs since I've been in the SD area. Always liked the pictures you've posted. The only "tall" ships that visit Crescent City are from Pirates of the Caribbean.
