Also - Check with people that have actually been on the boat youre considering. There were some guys we talked to on other boats who were pretty bummed at the food on their boat, or really lack thereof. The captains answer was for them to catch more fish. All kinds of characters out there. D'Bora was great for food and Addiction was good also from what I heard from my pal. I'd also try to find a boat with a large shaded outdoor space to hang out on, rest and watch your friends get waves. There is a lot of downtime out there while your body is recuperating. Its nice to hang out in the shade.

my first thought is it was effin crowded in september and wouldnt go back. went on the melaluecca there was brazzo boats, saffa boats, etc blah blah. insta crowds anytime a new boat shows up. even your boat. 12 guys just like that, but if you know them all and you take turns, it could be a completely diff killer experience.

its all about sharing and the right attitude and your pace. Not sure how you are going to figure out who the skippers are or if they are good or not? good lukk
