Have Boat Will Travel

Hey all...Im pretty new to spearfishing and my friends are too flaky, injured or inexperienced to dive with. I am looking for dive buddies who I can learn from and have a good time. I have a 15 ft AB inflatable with a 75 hp four stroke honda. I am an amateur diver but I can drive the shit out of that boat to concerned safey conscious people. I care about safety and woth staying withing the regulations. I am not completley without experience diving. I have been abalone diving for a few years and i have spearfished in mendocino and a few counties i have traveled to (mexico, costa rica, cambodia) although it would be better described as diving with spears rather
than "spearfishing" as i havent been very successful. My max depth right now is only 10M in good conditions but i hope to take a few freediving classes to increase my depth. Im located in the bay area but i like to dive mendocino and i travel up to humboldt a few times a year as well. I havent been diving down in so. Cal but like I said, have boat will travel.

Re: Have Boat Will Travel

Welcome! My family owns more or less the same boat - 15ft AB RIB with 75 horse Honda outboard - but it's down in San Diego, while I'm up here in the Bay Area. If you're ever looking for a diver to join you on the water, hit me up. I've been living in and diving NorCal for 12-ish years. I'll shoot you a PM with my contact info.

Re: Have Boat Will Travel

Hey, are you still looking for dive buddies? I'm in town this weekend visiting family Saturday to Monday and trying to get a dive in. I have all my gear except for a gun.

Staying at Hermosa Beach, so aiming for somewhere around the PV area.

Hey there, welcome!

Sounds like a decent set up. It would make decent for runs down in socal to Catalina, the mahi should be booming soon.

I stay local here in The Bay Area also, I constantly dive central, and southern. But up for northern.

I have a smaller set up of a 12' with an aluminum floor, working on a new outboard of 15hp
