My real name;john peter bohm
390 Ford Interceptor, Built it Myself back in 1976, Caught a LOT of Salmon, trapped a LOT of Prawns and towed a LOT of Logs with Her back in the day.thats a cool boat you got there, it wouldn't have one of those old nova 4 cyl engines does it. take me fishin' ?
25 ft., Fiberglass over wood, it was a good work boat on the West Coast of Vancouver Island and became a good pleasure boat on the Shuswap Lake for a couple of years then I was made an offer I couldn't refuse and it went back to work on the Island again.Cool boat.. Does it have a wooden hull..?
Back in the early 80’s my dad and his friend Tony went in on a wooden hulled 28ft cabin cruiser that needed some work to put back in the water. I got the pleasurable job of scraping the barnies off the underside over the summer.. That was Awesome..
Loved the Interceptor, burned a LOT of fuel but that's what We do when We want POWER. not sure about the leg count but for sure the Prawns were "spotted" and the meat was the size of a Hot Dog Weenie. That "Spring" Salmon was only 28 lbs so not big enough to get into the "King" or "Tyee" class, We called anything over 25 lbs and under 30 lbs "Smillies". anything that size was played out for at least 30 - 45 minutes and "Gaffed" aboard. The smaller boat was always rigged and ready for trolling or moocing in the bay after dinner where We might catch a 20 pounder if We were lucky. The "Smillie" was caught early morning 20 miles off shore in the open ocean where the BIG ones still take a hook.very cool so we call that a sleeper with that interceptor for motor. i know the salmon fishing from lake michigan, sure was bigun's last year. so prawns got 6 legs an shrimp got 8 legs is that the difference. also that net looks a little small for the size of that nice king.
