Sure wish I had access to fresh oysters. There is nothing better than oyster stew, made with red wine, milk and cream (simmered to reduced it by 25%), diced potatoes, real butter, crumbled bacon, chives, salt and pepper and paprika spinkled over the top. Damn, this sounds so good it makes me want some oysters!!!!

Improvements to the equipment you use is always rewarding Slopdog, looking good.

I like your boat, looks like it should work well.

I read about fishing for oysters and if I remember right, it is hard work.
