Boat Reports
Bluefin Bite (061712)
Hi everyone;

Weather today was beautiful, flat calm, and glassy. We found 2 school of Bluefin the first of which we landed 29 Bluefin in the 22 to 32 pound range. This was a good school and was stacked under the boat when a school of 5 pound Yellowtail found us and make it impossible to fish any longer. Luckily about an hour later we found another school and we caught 28 more in the same size range.

By noon we made the decision to head south as action in the area was quite slow. Enjoy the photos. The R/p crew.

P.S. The crew of the Royal Polaris wishes all a Happy Fathers Day.

Good Morning (061712)
Hi folks;

We are back on the road again departing Saturday morning at 08:15 hours, with a full load of bait already aboard. Our new Caterpillar engines appear to be running excellent and very quietly. It is amazing that on the back deck or just going down the ladder all you hear is prop wash. We wish to thank Ron Delane and Joe Corbacci of Hawthrone power systems for their fine service whenever needed through our installation.

We are headed south with plans of fishing Yellowtail, Bluefin, and Yellowfin offshore through the trip.

This trip is sponsored by Shimano with Bill Osborne as the rep. Bill has brought 40 to 50 outfits aboard most of which have Shimano most recent reels for our passengers to us on this trip.

Our weather is beautiful and we will be reporting daily from now until we lay in on Thanksgiving eve. The R/p crew.

"On The Road Again" (060412)
Hi folks;

Well here we go again. We are anxiously starting off our new season with an excited group of passengers on an 8 day trip. This is a Shimano sponsored trip, and Bill Osborne is the rep from Shimano. The boat looks great and we did a tremendous amount of work to the Royal Polaris.

We picked up a great load of bait and we cleared Point Loma at 09:00 hours, and we are headed south. We will updated you each day with pictures and a report. Wish us luck. The R/p crew (Frank, Dharyl, Jonathan, Evan, Eddie, Kenny, Anthony, and James).

FW: Royal Polaris Repower and Retrofit!


Hi everyone;

We apologize for the lack of reporting thru our maintenance period, but we have been working long hours and there was just too much happening.  The 3 Caterpillars C-18s have been installed and we have completed 2 sea trials with 2 more to be done before our first trip.  Perhaps the most noticeable factor is how quiet the boat is, because if you are standing on the stern while under full cruise all you can hear is the prop wash.  This is all due to the new muffler system we installed.  When running the boat the only way you can tell you have raised RPMs is by actually looking at gauges or nothing that the boat is moving.  You do not hear the engines.  I will report more about speed and fuel economy after we run a few trips.  Initially it appears we will be faster than with the Cummins engines.

In the engine room we have done a major re-build of our refrigeration system along with maintenance of all pumps.

The galley, cooking area, a rebuild of part of this area which will give Anthony, Jim, and Kenny a better working area and much more storage.  Installation of 2 new ovens at a cost of $8800.00 was also completed.  We also completely re-carpeted the galley.

Staterooms, all staterooms have been completely re-wallpapered with new photos and also new carpeting in both the rooms and hallways.  Hallways also were re-wallpapered.  Aft section hallways head and both private heads have been redone.

Sonar dome, removed with new packing glands replaced.

Mens head replace with new flush toiled and new vinyl.

There was many other maintenance items done that at this moment I cannot recall.  Our crew this year will consist of,

Frank, Roy, Dharyl, Jonathan, Terence, Evan, Eddie, Kenny, Jim, Anthony, James, Kenny.

We are very excited about the new season and we are all looking forward to showing you a great time with service that will amaze you.  The crew of the Royal Polaris.

P.S.  Photos will be posted tomorrow.
