FYI - Jack and I did get offshore fishing FINALLY. We picked up some chocolate chip porgies and while working north on the ridge, our Opti-Max blew out the engine again. Something about that sweet #6 connecting rod / cylinder was all dried out & missing the needle bearings.
So, we bought a refurbished engine and Jack put it 95% on this past weekend. It would have been 100% but he had the wrong o-rings for something.
We'll be fishing again soon. The cobia have arrived to Port Canaveral, although, the cold weather has come back too.
God bless. Happy Easter. See you after the break.
