Re: Abacos liveaboard spearfishing trip.

Dave and I hope to pay you a visit again this year while your across. I have had such a great time on each of my trips with you that it is Def a highlight of the summer.


Let's keep in touch and make it happen! Again!


SPEARFISHERMAN / AND SPEAR LADYS:
If you ever wished you had a friend with 35yrs+ experience on the water, and every human skill needed to thrive on a boat.......
YOU HAVE THAT FRIEND IN CAPTAIN STEVE M!

Steve has the know-how of a seasoned capt and the hospitality and personality to make a trip memorable. Steve is warm spirited and can tell a great joke and make the days flow.seamlessley from dive spot to dive spot and meal to meal. Without tv and Internet you will learn you rely on your surrounding company. I have never felt more at home than with Steve and Lynn on "our island "


If.you can swing the costs and time away from.work I suggest you try to make this trip a reality.

Steve not sure if you saw the article in spearing magazine from last summer but Sean wrote a piece about the trip when he Dave and I flew out to walkers to join you. Few nice photos for those interested as well as a story to read.

Re: Abacos liveaboard spearfishing trip.

holy Chit.... I hope that this happens once or twice more this year..... I would also like to join in on a trip 350-500 is not even fathomable. This sounds like a once in a life time experience.

Re: Abacos liveaboard spearfishing trip.

I do hope to do several trips this summer usually I do 5 or so groups a summer, and they have all been epic!

Re: Abacos liveaboard spearfishing trip.

Had a slight glitch in the getting going today. I tripped in some vines and into a 24' ladder I had stored on blocks. The feet have a sharp saw like edge, that cut right into me. Slow things down a couple days. Cut was 3 1/2 to 4" long and 1/2"wide and 3/4" deep or so. Took 10 sutures. No diving for me for a while. Left lower leg, mid calf outside.

Re: Abacos liveaboard spearfishing trip.

Despite the injury I am still heading out. There is a high forming of Georgia in a day or so and will stay there for at least 5 days. They make big waves and wind on the outer edges of circulation. So East winds at 15 and waves 4-6 from the East is not a good crossing. So won't leave right away. I will stay in touch with all.

Re: Abacos liveaboard spearfishing trip.

Hello Steve

I am inquiring whether you have some group that is looking to fill a spot. Unfortunately I don't know any spearoos here in Deerfield Beach to put together a trip of my own with you. I am a semi retired super yacht captain with a lot of spearfishing and diving experience. I am between gigs for a few months this summer so I am looking for some spearfishing opportunities.

Best regards

Captain Don Stanbro

Re: Abacos liveaboard spearfishing trip.

Do you run any shorter trips? 2, 3, 4 day? Having a job is really messing up my dive schedule. I could get a group of 3 or 4 to go on a long weekend trip. Hard to get time off work for the full week.

Re: Abacos liveaboard spearfishing trip.

Steve, awesome looking trip, trying to get a group together. Did I meet you on north east Abaco this past March looking for big male hogs? We were with Sherlin "50 cent" Russell in a rental center console.
Sent PM.

I have pic's of my shin exactly like that from a ladder that slid out from underneath me. 8 stitches and $3400 later. Well, $600 out of pocket.

I would love to go on one of your trips. However, I'm booked on a couple already for this year/summer. But next year I'd like to plan and get in on the books with you.
