She is called wildcard and is COP 60 miles for 12 anglers. Her skipper will be Mike Freeman. She will be available to charter in Whitby from April and is a 10m Swiftcat, one of only 2 in the U.K.

Thanks.

I met Mike less than 6 months ago but his C.V impressed me so much I bought the boat specifically for him to run. He has a huge shipwreck data base, most of which can be reached with this boat.

She is so fast and economical that Mike can target wrecks at distances of over 50 miles from Whitby on standard 10 hour trips and 80 miles on extended trips.

Hi Elton,

Best thing to do with your CV is bring it with you when you come for your first trip aboard "Wildcard"!

With regard to my CV. I think it helped that I have a portfolio of 960 wrecks in GPS which is about 90% more than the admiralty are aware of.

I used to go jigging commercially in the 90's on my fishing boat "This Way Up" out of Whitby. I could post a photo or two of my catches if someone could explain how to post photographs on this forum.

Hi Mike,

I'll definitely bring that CV. My years as a stockroom manager for Argos should set me in good stead for an even bigger boat than Wildcard :D

For pics, I use this site:

Once you've uploaded a pic, it gives you the code needed to add it to the forum.

Tight lines!
