After reading this several time I think what captkilowatt is most upset about are the owners/operators of pangas not following the rules of the road on the water. What happened capt did someone not give you the right of way?


Actually, what happened was the cappy was out patrolling the bay in a no wake zone, when a group of Mexican Pangueros flew by him at 20knts. Unfortunately this caused him to spill his Coors light. { aka Colorado Kool Aid}:lol::lol::lol::lol::lol:

interesting. from wikipedia


The Panga is a type of modest-sized, open, outboard-powered, fishing boat common throughout much of the developing world, including Central America, the Caribbean, parts of Africa, the Middle East, and much of Asia. The original panga design was developed by Yamaha as part of a World Bank project circa 1970.[1][2][3] Pangas are commonly operated directly off of beaches.[4] The name comes from the panga fish which is commonly netted, note the upswept bow of the boat which resembles the machete or knife called a panga. In addition to being used by fishermen, pangas are also popular with Somali pirates

Gotta give Capt his due. Wiki is not always correct. History of the panga is mixed, here is a link to more that does give Mac Shroyer, Marina de la Paz, credit for the panga we see in La Paz and the SOC.

The title is Master Mariner. 365 days at sea and a written test. To be a "Captain" in the US.
However no license is required to drive a boat. The license is to get paid for driving a boat.
In mexico it is more of a job title than a rank. Not sure if there is a license to be a panga driver.

Is the Master mariner something new? 30 years ago when I did it you had to log 720 days at sea and pass a written test and then you got a Masters license of up to 100 ton.

Hola, nothing bad about a boston... just not top shelf !! Over priced,poor ride,wet ride,heavy, Not stable at rest or ride, hard to add or replace (correcty) cables,wires,anything ..but is a solid unit !! but that is only good in/at the slip.. BTW I maintain a 28ft boston 'Conquest" patrol vessel.. and she is well thought out and made, but for performance she is not stunning by any means
. In real world,, there are a few MUCH,MUCH better vessels to consider and I have had a easy 100 guys at the end of the day say " Wow I'm saleing my whaler and buying one of these".... So, Please enjoy your (any brand) and Be Safe and have fun..the old "cathedral" hull design was bostons best !!

No doubt alot has changed since I retired, but back then there was no "6 pack license" the test and sea time requirements were all the same, the difference between a "6 pack" charter is that a licensed captain could take out 6 or less passengers on an "uninspected" boat. If you had 7 or more passengers then your boat had to have a "COI" or "certificate of inspection" which is done annually by the coast guard to make sure the vessel met all the equipment and saftey requirements, sets the passenger load maximums, coastal limits and also that the crew met the drug program and training requirements.
