Discoverer suffered a setback during her trip on February 4 as one of her Yamaha F150’s blew up.
This oil pump assembly cracked, and in a matter of seconds seized up the crankshaft, flywheel, and stator.
We expect to have the battleship repaired and back in the water this week.
Big thanks to our pal Jamie at
Tidewater Boat Works in Jacksonville to help us locate some hard-to-find parts for this repair, and of course big praise is due to Oldemar our Costa Rica Yamaha Mechanic.
Discoverer went on a two-way mission on February 3. Early in the trip they headed offshore to do battle with a pair of lovely Sailfish.
After the safe releases, Captain Carlos headed inshore for a super Rooster Fish release.

Hiro Toma continued his campaign of catching fish of a lifetime with this mega Cubera Snapper on January 22.
You think these guys will eat well this week?
What do you think happened to all these filets? Well Hiro and the boys took advantage of the local restaurants and their world-class culinary skills:
Discoverer welcomed Ryan Pryor and Adam LeMaster for a big day of action on the 21st with Captain Carlos reporting a pair of Sailfish releases:
Later on they nabbed two excellent meat fish, a big Dorado and a really big Yellowfin Tuna.
On January 20 Patrick Peltier scored again on the
