    Is the Red Rooster the only 105 foot boat in the long range fleet?

    Years ago on an 8 day there was on board a retired oceanographer from Scripps. I think his name was Bob. He was an older gentleman and he was the type of guy that when he spoke, everybody listened closely. Anyway, once he was explaining the dynamics of how a boat 'works' in the ocean. Dude was really smart. I don't recall exactly his explanation but it had something to do with the length between swells in the ocean and their relationship with the length of the vessel. I do remember his end point though. Something magical happens when a boat is over 100 feet to make the ride much more comfortable. Some sort of 'sweet spot' occurs. I do remember that he sure seemed like he was convinced it was a fact. Anybody know anything about this ?

    Swell is generated by wind or sometimes other events like earthquakes but thats rare. Lets say a large southern hemisphere storm with sustained 30-40 mph winds below Tahiti generates a 8-10 foot swell. In the storm area the swells will be close interval like a washing machine but as the swell travels across the open ocean towards say Baja, the swell interval (distance between each wave peak) increases and may be now 15-20 seconds. But generally at this point the swell is more like an elevator when on a boat, especially the farther it travels. Slowly up the swell and back down like "rollers".
    Im guessing what he means is that a bigger boat is going to manage the interval and stay out of the trough (lowpoint in between two wave peaks) when those intervals are still small. But of course other factors come into play too like the direction of travel in relation to swell, etc.
    in the Gulf of Mexico there is no long distance for waves to travel once storms generated them. So usually the waves are always short interval wind swell waves and when there are waves, its like a washing machine. In the Pacific we get Southern Hemisphere groundswells that are generated from thousands of miles away and hurricane swells in the summer months, and other winter storms up off Alaska. I think a bigger boat will be more comfortable in most conditions but conditions always change . A 100 foot boat can cross an 80 foot swell interval and stay out of the trough, in that particular condition. Thats my understanding of how it works. Maybe someone else can chime in.

    As many of you know my wife B and I sailed a 4ton sailboat all around "those islands" ya know the "buffer zone" for 6 seasons or so. Small boat sailors learn that all weather is good it's just that some is better. hahah. Wen one is "in it" it is hard to except that the ocean will do what it does whether you are there or not, hard not to take it personal at the time. HA

    I bet it doesn’t hurt as much as the hurt felt by the people who got fucked over by Klein. If amazes me that that pos shows his face down at the landing.

    Completely agree with you on him and how he handled that and how he maintained the boat the last couple of years. It sucks it couldn't have been bought by someone with some money to fix it up and stayed in the long range fleet

    Huh? You saw the post above right? The Q105 is still working...looks in really good shape too....just not a sportfishing boat any more.

    There is a ton of really old sportfishing boats that still pass Coast Guard inspection every year.....The Q105 was more about management style than age.

    The Q105 was built in 1968. The RP was built in 1975. Vagabond in 1969. The vast majority of the other boats were built in the mid 80’s. It was a management issue. Not an age issue.

    Makes sense, sometimes you just have to walk away from a deal.

    She sees some pretty nasty weather. I didn’t see her at the dock until the end of the summer. You don’t have to go very far offshore in Alaska to get your butt kicked. I went down to the dock and she was pretty beat up, cosmetic wise. But still very seaworthy.

    The Q would rather be fishing out of sunny SD. They removed the bait tanks! Basically cut the balls, off
