    Here’s an idea Ec., double the Beam Catortizing her with wrap around Hulls or Decks on Stilts. Gut the inner Hull creating a large POOL fill it up with Hybrid Bass of all sizes. Tag some of them with a variety of Prizes. Everyone goes Home with a Fish even if a Mate has to dipnet it, excluding Tagged Fish. Hybrids can be Trucked in for each Fishathon. Live Entertainment, Food, Drink, Dancing up on the Top Deck. Plug in the Shore Power. Leave Her tied to the Dock little or no Fuel cost. No Rocking or Exhaust Fumes. Probably need a bigger Parking Lot too. Damn!!! Casinos are the RAGE now too. Shit you can even stick up a WIND MILL make Her self-sustaining and painter GREEN… Ain’t SARCASM GREAT???
    Best of Luck to the New Owner for REEL.(with all sincerity)
    Sorry old Philosophies die hard. If you can’t Screw’em-JOKE’M…
    Again get out there and Catch’em up Capt.
