WHOOPS, THE PROPS HAVE A PROBLEM!

 

Our main Prop Guy, Ray Teel at Atlantis Propellers in Cinnaminson, NJ, reported that we have a problem with our main propeller set.  Since Ray really knows his stuff, we need to pay attention.  The problem?  Electrolysis.  Not good.  But we need to figure out how it happened.  Ray says that the props can be saved but we can't have this happen repeatedly.  We certainly do not want to lose a prop blade during the season.

We will have Bluewater Boatyard carefully check the bonding system on the boat.  We will also have Bluewater check the marina where June Bug lives in the winter in Manteo, NC.  It is possible that one or more of the boats docked there have electrical issues that will cause electrolysis on other boats in the area, including June Bug.  Unfortunately, we can't have any of this checking done until June Bug is back in the water following her complete paint job this winter.

It won't be long before the Big Time Fishing Season picks up here at Oregon Inlet, NC.  The middle of March.  Blue Marlin, White Marlin, Yellowfin Tuna, Bluefin Tuna, Blackfin Tuna, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi.  All become abundant.

Call me to discuss special fishing trips from Oregon Inlet well before the normal fishing season.  Regardless of what everyone says, catching starts well before the normally expected time of the year.

After I bought this boat and got her into fishable condition, our first trip from Oregon Inlet was March 16.  That date, we caught and released 3 Blue Marlin and 1 White Marlin.  We also caught and kept a limit of nice Yellowfins, a very nice Wahoo of about 35 pounds and a pile of gaffer Mahi Mahi.
