Our work toys :)

From the boat I worked on in Mexico, can get more pics up if people are interested. It's a surf, dive, fish and exploration charter boat. Was originally a deep sea 130' crabbing boat in the Bering Sea. It was bought and converted for luxury charters, we had a 12,000nm range. I was working as 1st engineer onboard.

Yeah got some pics I'll put a few up!

Runs well after a good service, lost hydraulic steering at one point but all sorted now.

There's a pic in there if me with Dave Kalama and Chuck Patterson, those guys are pretty much the pioneers of surfing, paddle boarding, tow in surfing etc

Mexico, that brings back memories, spent many years on the liners visiting mexican ports, lost an entire day after a visit to 'Papas and Beers' in Ensenado, and best not mention Carlos and Charlies in Cozumel or Senor Frogs in Mazatlan, and as for Aculpulco better not mention at all. And mustny forget Cab San Lucas. LOL, I bloody well loved Mexico, great weather, great people, great food and parrrrtttyyyyyy time. One of my all time favourite destinations around the world.

Here is a pic of a typical evening out LOL

Yeah left Ensenada and surfed the whole way down through Baja, the right hander is a place called scorpion bay. There is 5 points in a stretch of 1-2km. Cabo San Lucas was an eye opener for me!

I have never made it to Mexico as I have always been put off by places like cabo, but that looks tasty!

Spent a bit of tone further south though, warm water, pacific swells... Beats west wales any day

I like the idea of blasting from point to point on a big rib though. My two favourite pastimes in one hit! I am very jealous

Looks like fun. I always see the Royal Pelagic when we're on SD Bay since it's right near the Bali Hai!
