Is that you holding the Striper, or is it the mate?
How big was it in length and weight.

Damm, I'm sure that there is a good reason for those reduced pictures, but I don't think it does any justice to what would be more viewable(sp) and more detailed.
Salty I'm sure it was a very enjoyable trip.
Joe ;) ;) ;)
