Lots of my Mexican neighbors own pangas and have fed their families, put their kids through college by using pangas to fish the SOC. It takes hard work, common sense and an understanding of your surroundings. These hard working guys don't call themselves Captains -- over the decades they decided pangas were to be their boat of choice for lots of reasons. When I had the chance to buy one I did and it served me well for conditions in and around Palmas bay for over 15 years. I gave it to a deserving guy who needed it more than me and it now serves him and his family enough to make him economically stable in a very shaky market.

Captain? You can run a shrimp/fishing/crab etc. boat from now on and you might well be a pro, but if you don't have that license for how many tons etc. you'll never be a real captain. Oil field supply, crew boats, fishing, charter, on and on you've got to have the paper work to be able to take the wheel.

I doubt many of the mexican panganeers give a sheet about an official title of captain that we have NOB. I don't see the importance on anything under say a 100 footer.

Out to sea in a panga...no sight of land...no instruments...not even a compass...but he always got us home directly....just pointed the bow and never needed to make a correction.

Pacifico,
Don't know any guys with 182's that refer to selves as "captain"..... Nor do any small boat owners I know.
Maybe I just hang with a less pretentious crowd?

...YES.....it's incredible the lengths that native fishers can go to provide for their families....and the only recognition they seem to occasionally get from us is when they get lost to the sea....''where's my sushi!?''

Pacificbob: i feel your pain, as a retired pilot of big aircraft(747 md-11, dc10) i cringe a bit when single engine pilots refer to them selves as "captain" i worked long and hard for that title...that being said, i have yet to meet a pangero that referred to himself as captain.

I can certainly see your point of those that call themselves Captain, but after witnessing plenty of airline Captains exhibit questionable stick and rudder skills, I can also question their calling themselves pilots! Maybe systems managers would be more accurate. Thousands of hours on autopilot after receiving weather on a tablet or lap top, etc. as compared to some of the single engine flying done by many pilots is a similar comparison, IMO. Difficult to paint any group with a broad brush.:yes: Retired pilot of single engine planes. (C-182, C-206, C-T210, C-185, owned and operated)
