This boat is anchored in the Lingayen gulf in the Northern part of Luzon, Philippines. A major sea battle took place here during WWII between the US and Japan. A deceased family member fought near here and later wrote a book called Behind Japanese Lines, by Ray Hunt Jr. He was awarded a Silver Star by General MacArthur. Today all is good between the US and Japan, I've visited Japan many times since the mid 60's. I bought my first motorcycle in Tokyo in 1965.
When my friend and I went to Tokyo to buy motorcycles we happened to see a Honda sign as the bullet train was coming into the station. We walked over to the building and a petite little lady met us. We told her we wanted to tour the Honda factory and her reply was, "so sorry no tour today." I then said "gosh we are disappointed because we wanted to buy two motorcycles." After a long pause she said, "Oh, I think there is tour today." They brought a company car over, drove us 45 minutes across town, gave us a great tour and green worker hats and we bought two motorcycles.
Currently, this gulf is heavily fished by the locals for their daily needs. I rented this boat for three hours and never had a single hit but no complaints, beats being in a war.
