Honey...does this anti-fouling paint make my bottom looked warped?


And now...something entirely different:

Eric--- Regarding working lobsterboats and their beam here are three shots I took a few years ago. First shot is a pair of lobsterboats on Prince Edward Island. Next two shots are of a then-new lobsterboat we saw in Maine.

Question of seakeeping is too broad. Lots of hulls were designed for speed, some for stability, some for survival.


What do you want to achieve?

..for most readers, try and put the article into perspective...

Even the boaters here have boating criteria that is all over the place.

The 2 P.E.I style lobster boats are a different animal from the Downeast boats. That Young brothers boat is beautiful.

Leaving myself wide open for ridicule, the best seakeeping hull I was ever on believe it or not was a 2000 model Carver 325. Never personally cared for Carvers but whether it was skilled engineering or sheer luck, the hulls they produced for these little boats still holds my awe and admiration. A good friend had one, it could glide through the water at slower speeds without leaving a ripple and yet would practically jump on plane when hitting the throttles. With big honking twin 500 cu/in Mercs, it burned less fuel than my Silverton with less than 1/2 the horsepower. What impressed me most however was being caught one night in a raging storm in the middle of Georgian Bay. For 8 miserable, frightening hours it climbed steep short frequency breaking waves until the engines would nearly bog out at the top and then surfed down the other side at frightening speeds. There was never a moment it felt out of control, it did not slew when pushed or bury the bow in the troughs and tracked like it was on rails the whole time. Despite how ridiculously top heavy these boats look I don't think the CofG is as wacky as it seems. I sometimes wonder if Carver ever realized just what they had created. Nonetheless when a manufacturer gets something right they should be applauded, so here is my shout out to Carver for the hull design on the 325's
