From Rick McPherson- Current vessel name is Daiwa Pacific, that boat was originally built as the Pacific Outdoor. Owner was Akito Fujimoto, AKA "Fuji". In 1966 Fuji, his son Craig, my Dad, "Mac" McPherson, and me worked with Bob Stapp at Seaway to build the Pacific Outdoor. The Pacific Outdoor was the very first in the long series of larger Sportfishing boats Bob built and we all learned as we went. Our friend, George Mio, was on site frequently during construction as his boat, New Hustler, was the next one to be built. The boat was originally built without the wheelhouse up top, that was added in 1968 I believe. We ran that boat up until 1974 when it was first sold.
