I bought this game from an operator. I sold this game at the 2003 Texas Pinball Festival. The only thing needing repair was a switch matrix problem and the paddle wheel opto. The game has a nice layout and plays a "Good Run Of Bad Luck" by Clint Black when you turn it on. Not a bad effort for Data East/Sega.

Prototype game featured a widebody playfield and a "normal" 128x32 display. Among other features the widebody proto playfield had a hole under the boat
