Back in the early 1990s, Peter Wright and I put together a deal to fish the Mid-Atlantic $500,000 with our friend and boatbuilder Bob Roscioli on his new 72-foot Donzi. At the time, it was one of the larger sport-fishing rigs around, and after a good day of white marlin action, we were glad to be on it. Especially when a quick-moving front caught the fleet offshore about a half-hour before lines in, making for a nasty ride back from Washington Canyon to Cape May, New Jersey, in 25-knot winds. I have photos of a line of boats following us, and the first one has its bow right behind our rooster tail. We slowed to let the other boats fall in behind us, and that smoothed out our ride home considerably. It was a little damp, but the USS Nimitz would've taken spray that day.
