LOL, having worked on one, that smell always brings back great memories.

Seagulls love the bait and smell too and,
If the lobsterboat is near you,
Your boat is going to be covered in poo.

HopCar,

Yes it certainly looks build down and a fine form she has. The built down part seems to favor closer to disp speed but the typical straight run of the bottom aft suggests of higher speeds. A flexible hull perhaps. Looks like her fairly narrow beam and apparent displacement (from how much hull is below the WL) suggest that she should be a bit more easily driven than most modern lobster boats. I like her.

Thanks Eric. She is very economical at displacement speeds but I have a heavy hand on the throttle and I pay for it at the pump. She is powered by a 210 hp Cummins 6BT5.9M and will just top 16 knots with a clean bottom and Prop Speed on the prop.

I had a 29.5' Sumner Craft composite express cruiser that weighed 8,000lbs and she went 20 knots w a Ford Lehman. I sure wish I had some good pics of her unusual hull design variations. The engine was inside the keel and the shaft was horizontal. I wish I had her back now. The Sumner Craft was built in Amitiville NY in the 60s. You're in that area .... Ever heard of them?
