The Renegade is a 38′ Hatteras Sportfish. She was built and manufactured in 1968 in Cape Hatteras, North Carolina back when they built things to last! She is powered by two fuel efficient twin cummins diesel engines, with a thick fiberglass hull that makes for a smooth ride. After starting her deep sea fishing charter career on Oahu, she moved to Kona and became a member of the Kona Charter fleet where she managed to land two Granders! Waikiki Sport Fishing purchased the Renegade
in January 2015 and has been running deep sea fishing charters out of Honolulu’s Kewalo Basin Harbor ever since. Inside the vessel is the expected luxury that comes with a Hatteras. There is a relaxing love seat and a sofa, air conditioning, television, bunkbeds, marine head and shower. She is equipped with five Shimano Tiagra 130’s, Shimano Tiagra 80’s and Shimano Saragosa spinning/jigging reels, as well as a live bait well, Furuno sonar, and Garmin chartplotter.
The Snoopy V is a 39′ Force Sportfish Express built and manufactured in Hilo, Hawaii specifically for Hawaiian waters. She was created in 1998 by Jim Patterson, the owner of Force Marine, to be his personal fishing boat, and as such, was named the Force Play. There is no other boat that matches her custom design, built with thick fiberglass to handle the seas of Hawaii. She is USCG certified for up to 25 passengers, however fishing charters allow for up to 10. On Oahu, she is one of few sport fishing vessels that are capable of taking more than 6 passengers deep sea fishing.
Her career moved to Oahu to serve as a scuba diving boat in 2001. She was then sold and moved to Maui, where her name was changed to the Iwa Lele. She still holds the Maui record set by Captain Fuzzy out of Lahaina for the most mahi mahi caught on a charter in one day with 77! In 2004, she was sold and moved back to Oahu to serve as a dive boat again. This time, her name was changed to the Honey Girl.
We were lucky enough to discover and purchase her to serve our Armed Forces in 2008 at the Marine Corps Base Hawaii in Kaneohe. We changed her name to the Snoopy V. The story behind the name stems from our grandfather, whose first boat was the Snoopy, named by our Father and Uncle. Since then, there have been the Snoopy II (same make and model as the Renegade), Snoopy III, Snoopy IV and now the Snoopy V. In 2009, we moved the her to Kewalo Basin Harbor, where she serves dual purpose sport fishing and scuba diving off of Oahu’s south shore.
Powered by twin Cummins Diesel engines, Snoopy V is equipped with six Penn Internatioal 130’s, three Penn International 80’s and two Shimano Tiagra 50’s in addition to a Garmin Chartplotter and sounder. We landed our largest fish, a blue marlin, with her on February 12, 2009 and she weighed in at 600lbs.
