It was time for a life raft repack, so we figured it would be a good to see how it all worked before the boat was on fire and our eyes were blinded by tears.
The guys at the Englund's raft shop were AMAZING.
They taught us a ton about life rafts and our specific life raft.
There is a lot more to a raft than we knew about and now we have a pretty good idea of how to deploy the raft, get in, and not die.
They are also packing one of our EPIRBs in the raft, so we won't be in it for very long if we have to deploy it.
Clark and TJ (the world's best marine electronics guy) have been hard at work stripping out the old electronics to get ready to install our new Raymarine electronics.
If you ever want to know what it is like to scrape 5200 off of a transducer in a cramped engine room for 3.5 hours, Clark can tell you.
Coast Diesel is servicing the CAT's and Deny is taking care of everything else.
We are on target for an April splash date.
I can't wait for June.
"True players play the whole map" (Ice-T, Ny, Ny) and the Coleman's are proving it from WA to Los Suenos.
Mark and Merry just took over Pelagic Pursuits charters in Los Suenos and will be running a charter there.
Jenn and I spent a week there when we brought Shake N Bake home and it was incredible. There is a brand new, giant resort with all the amenities and the boats in the marina were unreal, plus there was great food, not just beans, rice, and chicken, like most of Costa Rica.
If you want to go and unwind and have world class fishing at your doorstep, this is the place to do it.
I can't wait to get down there and check it out.
Stay tuned for a big Shake N Bake update.
Thanks to Raymarine and Costal Marine Electronics, Shake N Bake is getting all new electronics next week.
Lets hope it is an early season again this year.
