Re: California Dive Boats -- the legend of Radon (pictures)

My Radon 24'er saved my bacon during a sudden mid-channel storm off Catalina...The sky turned a swirling black and soon, I was going up 15' curler waves with my feet off the deck, hanging from the steering wheel..dropping off the top for 10', skipping down the front like a surf board...3 1/2 hours to go 15 miles...waves breaking over the boat would fill the deck up to my knees...wave tops were blowing away into sea foam at about 60 mph...the sealed engine compartment and self-draining deck saved my life..any other boat would have gone down...best dive boat ever made...
