Alright! We just got a new boat! Its a used 24 footer, and in pretty good condition. We bought it from of some skindivers and it even has a little mini fish hold thingy! Were gonna set up a pump to cycle fresh water into it so we can keep live fish alive longer lol! And no more sleeping out in the rain because its even got a small cabin. Man I can't wait to use it! :boat:

Congrats! Does it have a name? If it was owned by divers, does it have a compressor on board? I guess as 24 footer's a bit small for a compressor, though...

Thanks Jean, Ive been distracted by lots of stuff school mainly. Lots of pressure to get in a private school. :read: But I always check back from time to time. And Wheke you say? I love it! And it's polynessian. I think, so it fits right in.

I spent three years in Hawaii getting my master's degree working with cuttlefish (had to import them...). I lived with two local guys and still have some really good friends in Mililani and Pearl City.

Does it have a backup motor? We had a little 15 horse outboard with a special mount for our 25 footer and it came in handy a couple of times saving many $ in tow fees. Without it I would have been a little leery about taking day trips across to the Bahamas (this was pre gps, all we had was a loran and a compass). Enjoy the new boat .:boat:

University of Hawaii at Manoa. The professors I worked with don't work there anymore (one retired, the other is a whole other story...).
Very cool, and what do you mean by "Whole other story?" If you dont mind me asking that is.
