Bob has held a 100-ton captains license for 20 years and has skippered boats from Panama to Alaska and many points in between. These boats range from 65-foot custom VIKINGS to his own skiffs over the years and of course the family boat the "Christina Lynn".

Bob and crew are customs outfitting a 2320 Pilothouse Parker to further document via Video and print media their fishing adventures of the next three years here in California as well as in Alaska and Mexico.
