Default 2012 White Marlin Shootout

Well, we didn't win. Didn't place either. Had a blast none the less. Next to the smallest boat in it at 45 feet. Some damn fine rides showed up. We did get a bill though. Sail on 30 and missed a blue and a white. I can't remember who won...(whiskey brain).

How big was that sail Hard to tell with that camera lense, but looked like a beast for the Atlantic.

Just talked to my buddy Pip, mate on the Conundrum, they won the tournament, releasing two whites and a sail on the first day and said they went to battle with a big blue between 7 and 800 lbs on the second day for six hours before losing her, he said Done Deal and Gear Up also won some money in the catch and release

Good job on the sail! Whatever you guys were doing it worked a lot better than what we were doing! I agree with you on the nice boats! I always enjoy seeing tricked out battle wagons.
