Thank you. Will give them a shout. 
 

eta- I thought I recognized the name. They are about 15 mins from where the boat sits.  I’ll swing by and talk with them.

My name is Brian. I know one of their sales guys Travis. The owner has built up that shop doing work for a whole bunch of wakeboarders over the years.

Yeah it’s always full of wakeboard/ski boats (My folks life down there, I pass thru often). I’ve got about all the audio I want (not much) and always figured they were just a speaker shop. Good to know they do details and whatnot too, because the last guy, well, he’s not getting a second shot.  I’m going to swing by and see what all they do.  I try to keep my boat in ship shape, but it’s getting to that age now where cosmetic things need to be stayed on top of.

Well, it’s the off-season for fishing so now is when I get sent the pics once or twice a month to prove that the boat is still clean. And floating. Costa Rican mates are so much better than the Texas guys as far as taking care of a boat. However we’ve had a Texan on our boat for the last month while everyone was out of town and he’s done a really good job. Probably won’t get down to CR to fish again until January but the boat is ready to go.

Was this ever docked in Kemah?  It looks familiar, but Ive only been there 2 or 3 times.  This was 4 and 5 years ago.

Is this a humblebrag or just a brag brag?  Either way, very nice!

Ha, it’s been posted plenty of times on this site and on Shaggy including when we did a Shaggy “field trip” out offshore of Port A on it. Yes, I took a bunch of I’m from the internet dudes out fishing.

No, before the boat was in Costa Rica it was in Port A. The previous owner had it in Freeport when he didn’t have it in the Bahamas, but it was called Empty Pockets back then.

That really is a beauty Viking.  What's the length again?  38?  What's powering her?

My buddy has a gringo who has been living in Cabo for 10 years washing and taking care of his.  Apparently has a pretty good rep.  I met him and he seemed cool.  Hoping to head back down there once before he brings it back this summer.

Weather is shaping up beautifully for this weekend.  Was planning on going down just to do some maintenance and trip prep for Thanksgiving at Catalina, but trying to talk the fam into a day sail Sunday.  I have Monday off for the first time in like 10 years, so I will overnight and work on her Monday.

Nice ride!  If I have always lusted after a 65 Viking.  One of the sexiest rides ever made IMHO

That said I have kind of moved away from big boats, the 30'+ CCs have the speed/comfort/draft/versatility/fishability that is hard to match for the type of boating I do... big boats are great for partying on the docks in the islands after fishing, but I want to shower/sleep in a real room.  (nevermind cruise in the 40s Vs 20s)

Thanks, it’s a 45 with 800hp MANs. Very reliable engines but extremely pricy to service.  If there is a next boat it will have CATs.

99% sure I know that guy. He moved onto others and last I saw, a very large Spencer.

If I recall correctly he lives in Houston and has a company that manufactures something like bathroom stalls for public restrooms.

Let me check a bit, that wouldn’t be same guy. But he’s been using that name for a bit.

Need to go to the fuel dock to fuel up and swap out my CNG tank (for stove). Glassy but what a glorious day in November. A little crappy store bought sushi lunch listening to the Rams c Steelers. Today is a good day. AND I get Veterans Day off for the first time in more than a decade. Already have my prime filet ready to go for tonight.
