I think you all need to visit, and get with the times. Things have changed a great deal. The prices at JER are still the same as anyone, but, Capt. Tom doesn't sail the Sea Boots anymore. However, the Sea Boots is still available for deep sea fishing with it's new owner and crew. It sounds like you've done some real home work! (original thread) Keep it up, and you'll be doin' it right!
