This Radio Log was included when Mr. D. purchased FIVE SEA SONS, the real ARGONAUT, in August 1966. It is was told to me that the name “ FIVE SEA SONS” was derived in the hopes of a fifth season and beyond of the hit TV show by its cast, crew and creators. Sea Hunt the TV series ran for four seasons from 1958-1961. The fifth season of this of Sea Hunt is now.
I do not have any documentation or records about FIVE SEA SONS after the TV show ended. The only documentation I have begins in August of 1964. The first entry is dated 4/22/64. The entry states the that a radio frequency check was made. It describes a “Raytheon 41.
Another entry lists the vessel name as “ FIVE SEA SONS“. On May 4, 1964, FIVE SEA SONS, (ARGONAUT) was en route on one of many voyages from Isthmus, Santa Catalina Island to Redondo Beach, California.
I will be posting other log entries and other adventures of her fishing trips and her adventures with Mexican authorities while on fishing trips to Baja California. Mexico.
