Seems you were a good person to ask about speed.

Any boat that exceeds hull speed is clearly not a FD boat .. unless a severly over powered one. And enters into a hydraulic and dynamic state of velocity that is partly planing (semi). Identifying at what point it emerged out of the semi-planing/not FD and entered the world of "planing" ...... that would be much harder to identify.

Many that know much about this identify that amount of speed as a function of the speed/length ratio.

Your center paragraph clearly defines a typical trawler ..fully intended I assume.
