  1. Old reliable: Marlin Club and Bartender Brian:

    We don't think any trip to Catalina is complete without a visit to Brian at the Marlin Club. I've known Brian for about 23 years now. Never tire of his antics. Brian on your left: Thursday before Memorial Day I walked in to the Marlin Club and the Red Bull rep was trying to convince them to use the Red Bull coolers for Red Bull,, and take out the products that took the Red Bulls place. "I bought these coolers on E bay, I can put anything in them I want too" Randy fired back. The Red Bull...
  2. Dingy Adventure to Skull Rock Cave:

    A couple hooked up a few moorings down had restored a nice classic wooden dingy and motor for their daughter to use this summer while she works at the Harbor Market. Absolutely an amazing, bitchen job they did. Show quality, no question. They had it side tied to their boat. We had a group dingy adventure planned for the next morning until,,, In the early mornings darkness,, two described as "Persians" T Boned the dingy on their Sea Doo's. Just murdered it. Damage all the way through the...
  3. Your kids snorkeling with Leopard Sharks, Fun n Easy:

    In Two Harbors Catalina their is the USC Marine Studies Center at the East entrance to the Harbor. Just a few yards to the North West is a terrific beach the kids can snorkel off.

It's important to know that. Water has been 68F so the kids busted out the wet suits. Maynard got a sea scooter for Christmas so...
  4. Our Parker Time Capsule,,,

    Been some time since we used our Trailer at Emerald Cove. It's 12 years old now and has a rubber roof. At the 12 to 14 year old mark ya have to re-coat the rubber roof or it'll need replacing by the time it hits 16 years old. Better to spend $200 now than junk the trailer or spend $3000 later. So we headed out to pick it up and bring it home for a refurbishing and roof coating. Stopping off in Palm Desert we had lunch and the girl brought us the wrong order. No one else in the restaurant,,...
  5. Another Tail from the Reef Bar in Catalina from TPC

    I walked into the back bar at the Reef Saloon in Two Harbors Monday night. A cowboy and his wife were sitting at the bar. Strange sight amongst boaters out here in the Pacific, but their was a reason. Not a Hollywood Cowboy, he had all the markings of the real deal. The round classes, the floppy hat, all that was missing was the flat bed truck. I sat down as the baseball game came on the TV and asked if I could buy he and his wife a Pancake Breakfast. He and his wife had to see what I was...
