How many lobster or Downeasters are here?

So I am curious to see how many Downeasters are on the site. Pictures please if you check in. The avatar is not Moon River but my previous boat Draco-Volans

Well here's my work boat. It's not my trawler but I've probably overnighted on it 100 times in the last 15 years.

Not sure what you're really asking here...Workboats? Downeast style boats?
There are lots of "Trawler" types, some more downeast than others..

The salty lobstermen over on downeastboatforum scoff at my boat and claim it isn't a downeaster because it was built by Mainship or it wasn't built by one of the good ole Maine boys. But if it looks like a duck.... See my avatar.

Here is another pic:

Downeast boats just look good and I guess that has something to do with the fact that the cottage was left on the hard rather than plopped on the hull. There is also some rumor that they tend to perform well at a wide range of speeds 6-20K. They might even work as a live aboard for some jack tars but I don't know about the little ladies giving up the cottage.

I'm kind of new to all this... What exactly makes a Trawler a "Downeaster" or a "Lobster" style? I think I understand the "Tug" style. Those are the 3 major styles of trawler, right?

Everything here is a trawler Jeff Foxworthy asked his buddy if he wanted a Coke. His buddy said "yeah, sure" Jeff replied "what kind ?" Now we just need to decide "what kind" of trawlers we have.

One of the first participants in Trawler Forum when it was launched in 2007 is the husband of the couple we cruise with as frequently as our schedules allow. I don't know if he still looks at the forum, but here are a couple of photos I took of his boat. It is a Maine-built commercial lobsterboat hull that was completed out here with the larger cabin and accomodations. Power is a 420hp Cat, cruise speed is about 15 knots although these days he tends to cruise it slower to reduce fuel cost.

He designed the davits on the stern which were fabricated by a machine shop in the Bellingham area. The dinghy is a 10' Bullfrog, made in Bellingham.

That is a beautiful boat. Do you know which yard built the hull?

The designation of trawler has become so very broad and now would include the DE and lobster boats depending on who you ask. Why is that because there is no real established definition of a trawler and anyone who wishes to call a boat type one is free to do so. As for the DE and lobster boats that definition is also getting a little loose. The purist might say the boat has to be built in main others may say it has to derive from a working lobster design. So what is a GB Eastbay or a lobster boat built in Oregon etc etc. There is a Downeast internet site and now and then posters argue about such things. For me show me the boat and I can tell you what it is not so sure everybody would agree. Rare to find a DE or Lobster type that would qualify as a cottage more often the boat cottage ratio is to the left with the working lobster boats far to the left.
