Off Season Maintenance 2019

Still basking in the glow of our record-setting 102 trip month of August, the team continued to fish into mid-September. However the time has finally come to refit, repaint, and reload the fleet for an exciting 2020 campaign.

Outside of basic maintenance we don’t have any large-scale projects in store for the fleet this year; however once we start pulling them apart we will certainly find stuff to address.

The Explorer is already stripped and ready for new gelcoat, and the other boats will get the same level of attention over the next six weeks.

Elsewhere, we are upgrading the bathrooms of several of Nosara Paradise Rental’s older units.

It may be the ‘off-season’ but we don’t take days off around here!

It’s officially the off-season, but don’t tell Captain Alex and the Harvester. They braved the so-called rainy season on September 1st with Lindsey McNally and her group.

The Sailfish were charged up and ready for action. These Jacksoville anglers were up to the task!

Excellent fish handling by Mate Wilson to ensure the safe release of these beauties.

They also added this Dorado for the dinner table.

The Sims group finished off their trip on August 27 with a fun day in the sun on the Discoverer.

They were paced by the Wanderer offshore, but pulled up when the keen-eyed Captain Carlos spotted this floating debris:

The large fish were elusive but the big battleship stayed busy with a large quantity of smaller catches.

They had a sushi appetizer to celebrate the good catches, then contributed their sizable haul of fish to Maria for a family-style dinner back at Nosara Paradise Rentals.

Great trip for Team Sims!
