Looks like new! Euro 120
« on: August 23, 2018, 02:13:46 PM »
I was pumped when Garrett aka roadrunner hooked me up with a great deal on a Riffe Euro 120 - it came with an aussie reel too. After taking everything off, giving it a light sand and a good rub down with teak oil, thing looks like new! now I need to get some fish guts on it!

Anyone up for a Catalina trip??

I would be interested in hearing more on that. I try to make it out to Catalina every year or two, always a good time.

Don’t Riffes look better when they look like hell?  They aren’t works of art like your guns, Mike.

I did 4 coats over 2 days. The last coat didn't soak in very much and I had to wipe excess off 2x. Still think it needs more coats?

You're good.  It sounded like you only put on one.

I was just thinking about this Matt. I recently did a trip to Santa Cruz with some guys on the forum, on the Peace boat. Got me thinking.. what if NCUH chartered Peace for a couple days? Bet folks would get on board, no pun intended. That or a big group spot on catalina.

This is an awesome idea! Some friends of ours own a really nice Villa in Hamilton Cove and recently offered it to us for a weekend. So we're looking at Oct/Nov. Should have more info within a day or two of when we go. It would be epic to do a charter boat from Catalina!

This sounds like a rad idea for a trip. I’d totally be down for something like this.
