I had a few hours to kill before my flight back home Tuesday from San Diego. I returned my rental car early and walked down to the harbor, where I walked among the commercial fishing docks, cruise ship lines, as well as the Midway. What a great place to kill a few hours. Beautiful memorials recognizing decommisioned ships and their accomplishments in the south Pacific in World War II gave me some great perspective of our great country's history.

More to the point was this real neat cabin-style military whaler that continually trolled the dock areas around the Midway and the cruise ship. It looked to be a Challenger based on my viewing of the Whaler CPD site. I now have 8 footitis! I thought of waving the Coasties over and asking them for a ride, but thought that to be selfish, so I just watched the smooth back and forth patrolling while the sun warmed my neck as I sipped really bad coffee. Residents of this area must be so lucky to have such a great place to boat out of!

You are right , it is a nice boat. They pulled me over in San Diego bay a few weeks ago. When I asked why, they just wanted to check out my 22' Outrage that I just trailered back from Florida. A 1989 that has never been bottom painted and never seen salt water, until now. I do appreciate your vast knowledge of outboards, props, etc.
And you are correct, we have a great palce to boat all year long.

Sal- What I'm about to say may make you tear up. I live in Carlsbad about 24 miles north of San Diego and have the pleasure of enjoying the view/weather most every day. I know thw whalers you mention well. I also own a military/law enforcement hull 22 whaler that is in a slip over on Oahu in Pearl Harbor....the view/weather is great there too.

San diego, such a lovely place isn't it?

I consider myself one of the most lucky people to live here, boat here, fish here and surf here. Summer crowds are coming though, time to hole up on the weekends until fall.....

You guys are all lucky...

Ps... I am the Sal on the forum who is not experienced with props and outboards. They laugh at me at the marina because of my tendency to call the outboard on my boat "the black thingy that makes noise on the back."

Have a good day guys.

Sal: remember the boat bag you gave me when I bought your BW, which I wish I still had. I live my boat life through that bag. Had to dump it yesterday to find my transom drain.
