OS 1163: LIVE from the Jacksonville Boat Show

The guys were live from the Jacksonville Boat Show on this episode, except for Capt. Kirk, who was sporting his pom-poms and cheering on his soccer superstar granddaughter.  In a first, Boat Show organizers held it at a new location: Metro Park Marina downtown.  Lots of amazing boats, and lots of fun being outside for a change!

Friend of the show and all-around super-smart guy, Dr. Quinton White (who also happens to be Executive Director, Marine Science Research Institute and Professor of Biology and Marine Science at Jacksonville University) called in to talk about some local and national aquatic environmental issues.  Dr. White called these issues “catastrophic” – a word he doesn’t use liberally.  Listen in to get the details.

Erin Johnson, Administrative Director of the Jacksonville Marine Association, sat in with Capt. Kevin and Jeff to talk about the boat show, fishing the First Coast, and more.  She shared a lot of important info, however business picked up when she introduced us to a new term: “Charlie Foxtrot”.  Listen to get some clues about what that means…

Here’s your L.V. Hiers gear tip of the week: The Shimano Power Plier pliers are Captain Kirk’s favorite new pair of pliers.

Here’s your Kirbyco Builders Inc. cooking tip of the week: Sweet potato and pineapple hash

Try roasting sweet potatoes (diced) with olive oil and sea salt at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Add diced pineapple (make sure it’s drained well), toss, and bake for another 10 mins… broil at the end for a few minutes if desired to get the potatoes extra crispy and caramelize the pineapple! SO good! Makes a great bed for pork, fish and chicken!
