WELCOME TO THE CHIEF!
I would like to welcome all previous customers of the old “Big Game 90″ and “Mascot VI” to the newest version of the famous vessel, no renamed “Chief”. The “Chief” wil continue to operate out of H&M Landing in Point Loma, San Diego and the landing will handle all the open-party reservations.
Over the past four months the vessel has received and extensive modernization with lots of needed improvements as follows: Complete galley remodel with all new wall and floor coverings, upholstery, curtains, new stools, new six-person booth, twin flat-screen TVs with play station that has 300 movies, surround sound and so much more. Galley now has honest seating for 25 people!
The vessel was repainted with Awl Grip polyurethane and shines like never before! The bridge received an electrical overhaul with lots of new equipment, electrical panels, computer, Nobel Tec navigation system, GPS, gauges, alarms and radios to make her state-of-the-art and ready to fish.
The boat was repowered ion 2010 with MTU diesel engines with a very low 4100 hours and twin generators so we are focusing our efforts on the Electrical systems, pumps, refrigeration units and water-makers to get things up to speed and ship-shape.
Captain Chris Randel has taken command of the “Chief” and brings 25 years experience in the San Diego sport fleet along with a great reputation for customer service to the operation. Chris has staffed the vessel with former crew members of the “Indian” with Captain Sean Ward as second captain and Chf Ian Rea serving up tasty gourmet meals and snacks in the galley.
