I love the wildlife, dive when I can, and fish as much as possible. I have skippered many Charter Vessels since "Riko Riko", both big and small, but she has been in my care for 8 years now and still improving somewhere. Old is Gold and Wood is Good, and the fish seem to love swimming around her "That's for Sure".
