Capt Danny's association with Legend Lures goes back to a muggy summer in 1994, when a young Danny came to Madeira to fish with Capt Bart Miller aboard Roddy's boats. Friends ever since then, Danny has been using Legends for a decade now, and as one of Florida's best known and successful private-boat captains, he has been a source of some fine photos over the years. Danny will be providing a travel dialogue later in the season as he fishes the Bahamas and the Caribbean, but for now he's going to concentrate on this page with the documentation of the build of his owner's new vessel, a 74 foot Spencer that is currently under construction.
As a boat captain, Danny has been involved with some of the finest rigs out there, so anyone who wants to ask a question relating to the operation of these giant fishing machines is welcome to comment below. Danny will answer as soon as he can.
It starts at the beginning, with a plan.

Roddy, here's the plan of the new boat. I'll post some photos up with comments as we go along. Hope you enjoy the ride !
After the jig has been cut, it is shipped to Spencer’s hull-shop to be put together. I have put together some week to week photos of our build that is currently underway at Spencer Boat Works and I will update the pictures weekly as the build continues.
