What is this trawler ? (photo)

Looks a bit like 43 to 48 Tollycraft, but slightly different...what is it ?

Interesting... I would not have guessed Mainship as it looked higher quality...at least from a distance....suppose the hardtop and expensive dingy lift helped in that respect. Regardless I was impressed with the overall exterior appearance.

Maybe C&C CML 37

Extremely well built (don't say that often) . Beautifully laid out systems and engine access make any maintenance a charm unfortunately it ploughs like a bulldozer and is not fuel efficient at all.

Dune,
Not been nuts about all of Mainships hull designs but I didn't know they were lower quality.
In what way are the lower quality?

Sure looks like an '05 '06 Mainship 43, aft cabin version, to me.
Certainly not even close to Tolly and the bridge tooling is different from the CML 37, as well as house profile.

Mainship is correct. It's true that their quality has been uneven at times, but overall it has improved a lot since the late 1970s.

Boatpoker, It's probably not as fuel efficient as yours, but we've been averaging less than 4.5 GPH at 8.5 knots. That's with twin Yanmar 370's. Of course any faster and all bets are off. Regarding the boat in question, that is a custom hardtop.

Yes...shame the transom name and hailing port is hidden behind the dinghy (is that legal from a coast guard perspective ? )

For pleasure craft, nothing illegal as long as the name and port are visible somewhere.

I thought it was a CML 37, thats what I was referring to when I said it was not fuel efficient.

I don't think you're required to show a name or port anywhere. I think as long as you show your registration numbers, you're set, right? There are plenty of boats out there with no name at all.

Yes. ours is the galley down, two stateroom version. We have the post. It doesn't appear to be structural. It has two reading lights and a two cup holder wood piece attached.

Sorry, missed that. But I bet you still get better fuel mileage than we do at any speed.

Not a chase to the bridge?
The sedan has it too except it is built into the cabinetry.

No, not a chase. The main chase is located behind the trim between the small window and the large window on the stbd side. The port trim has a couple small wires and the hose from the propane locker. The trims just pop out by pulling on them.

Does that post get in the way?
I guess it would leave craters top and bottom if it was taken out?
