PS--- Here is the builder info on my friend's boat. I remembered wrong-- the hull maker was not named for a person. I was probably thinking of the designer.

"My lobster boat was built by Flye Point Marine in Brooklin, Maine in 1990. She was layed up and roughed in at the yard in Maine and shipped to Washington State with engine and transmission installed. She is of a Spencer Lincoln design. She was then completed by a local cabinet maker/boat builder."

Ontario Yachts, Great Lakes 33 designed by Ron Ball with a very "down east" style. Photo is from just outside of Glacier Bay in Alaska.

Well, not really a lobster boat, but built in the Downeast.

I have always found it interesting that lobster and Downeast types have traveled far and wide when it comes to coastal use up and down the East Coast and as a few posts here show up to Alaska. These boats are often superior performers and only give ground to the quintessential trawler in the department of blue water ocean hoppers and cottage on water retirement homes. The spread of the type out of the Northeast has been slow but steady. This is an American type that deserves more credit than it gets.

I've always felt the Hinckley Picnic Boat was a good example of the breed.

Our boat was a working Maine lobster boat.

The hull is a US Navy 50 ft Uniflight built Utility Boat.Fire retardant resin , milspec construction , full foam flotation.

Power is a 6-71 .3-1 32. SQ 4 blade prop.Backing rudder.

The interior is quite small , painted with a bit of wood trim.

Now has Dickinson oil range and 4 burner /oven propane gymboled range , head shower and Queen bunk fwd.Refrigeration is Propane

With 6 ft for a collision bulkhead and a 15 ft long working aft deck only 30 ft is left for living space.

The 12ft air height is a help on many waterways , the PH is 11ft square and the auto pilot makes cruising very easy.

She is fitted with dry stack and keel cooler , about the only way a boat can work in freezing temps with no work on returning to the dock.

Electronics are Flow Scan, VHF, car radio and Auto pilot. The hand held GPS died will be eventually replaced.

Only sleeps 2 (on purpose) and ran the loop with ease , low cost (no maint but oil changes) ,and works well for shallow water FL cruising.

Not a beach ball, but comfortable enough for 2 old sailors.

Flye point marine and BHM were one and the same model. The mold was used by Keith Otis for both companies. Very few of the 36's were built. They are a highly desirable model.

This is a Bruno & Stillman hull one of the first DE fiberglass boats (built in 1975) designed by Royal Lowell. In 2004 the cabin which was glassed over plywood and built for shorter New Englanders, was replaced by Willings & Messick of Chance, MD. Down East meets Chesapeake Bay so to speak. She has a 300 C Cummins for power. Cruises effortlessly at 15 knots and WOT is 19 knots. This will be my 16th season running dive charters with her (O.C. Diver).

The Bruno & Stillmans Jarvis Newmans, abd BHM's were the downeast standards in the 70's and 80's. All of them are still sought after. The JM's were the higher priced boats that still command higher prices.
It was said by one Maine boatbuilder on another forum, " Brunos' have been everywhere and done everything". Bruno had a quality control issue that put them out of business in the early eighties. They only built a subpar boat in the last year or two of their existence. Any of the 70's- to 1980 were really well made. A lawsuit over construction took them out. Cape Dory later use the 42' mold and Five Islands built the 35's Like Brooksies' and OC divers boats.
The BHM's made by Flye Pt marine were workhorses as well. The 31' was huge for it OAL and was advertised as "The Biggest little boat in the bay" by flye Pt. They later came out with the 36' and the 39'.
