Diane earned her Captains license in early 2022 as a personal goal and in support of their next adventure together.
With the desire to once again own and run a charter boat in Westport they purchased the Hot Pursuit in 2022, rejoining the Westport Charter community to fulfill their passion for fishing and interacting with their customers.
