John

No luck as of yet but it's no big deal. I'd be a little leary too of having someone dive on my boat for the first time during a tourny.

Sure thing.

Just two things. At least one member of your team has to attend the mandatory Captain's Meeting on Friday, the 24th and be in line for the weigh-in by 11 AM Sunday, the 26th.

You can launch your boat from any location.
