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...

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.
