Thanks, guys and doll .
Oh, I replaced the camera and zoom soon after they froze up, and added a couple of more modern Canon film bodies in years to follow (for 400mm tele use). In all those years of travel and use, the only problem I had with the cameras was because of the wave soaking- and that was driver error (that's 30+ years for the A-1 and AE-1 program). No complaints about equipment from me.
Oh, about the time of year- I was there in November or December, when the cold Humboldt Current prevailed. Sometimes the warm El Nino current comes in and the fishing is worsened (I forgot about that ).
