My two on the tow boat my dad ran for a time in the Florida Keys:



Son was saving for a catamaran when he had his heart attack. And my daughter, well, she understands that I'm a boater. She's going to be 30 next month. Where does the time go?!

The fishing off the docks in Spanish Cay. The hardest part is reeling them in fast enough so the sharks don't get'em. And the new boat.

Which is why we this side of the world maintain we drive on the correct, (as opposed to right), side of the road. After all, if the right side is the correct side for the boat helm, why should cars be different…?

Peter, you mean your helm isn't on the port side? If I'm not mistaken, I think Bruce's is.

Yes, the engine is a QSB 380 common-rail turbo. It will do a maximum of 20 mph at 3,000 rpm and cruise at 14 mph at 2,400 rpm. I typically run about 9 mph at 1,450 rpm and 2.5 gph.
Just wondering, how does she handle at those higher speeds?? Hopefully better that a recent report (and posting) I made in reference to the Beneteau Swift Trawler

Got any photos of her bottom shape/design?

Here are a couple of bottom pictures.

This hull was designed as a shrimping hull for use off Washington State by Lynn Senour, a well-known West Coast Marine architect. The mold was obtained by TOMCO to build the first AT 34 around 2000. As you can see, it is SD with hard chines and a fairly deep v in the bow.

Most of my experience in challenging waters is running trawler speeds across Lakes Ontario, Erie, Huron and Michigan, the Gulf, the Atlantic outside Marathon Key and Delaware, the Albemarle Sound, and NY Harbor.

I have little experience running high speeds, however, I did run once in 2-3 ft chop above 12 mph where there was some bow rise, some spray, but the boat had responsive steering and the bottom did not slam into oncoming waves.

I find this boat quite seaworthy. While it is sometimes uncomfortable, I have never felt it was unsafe.

The 365 is a change in name only. The hull is the same be it a 345 or a 365.

That helps to know that cuz the last time at the TrawlerFest in Lauderdale we got aboard a 365 and I thought it was an "upgrade" over the 345. I remember when the Camano 31 was the Camano 28 also. Regardless, all good boats.

The Island Gypsy has the helm to starboard. Its predecessor, the Masters 34, Oz designed and built, has it to port. No rhyme or reason, just is.

My Uniflite lower helm was port side. It actually worked pretty well as I leaned on a cushion over to port and made it easy to keep a watch out on starboard (green side, you know).
