Boating buddies with a 32 Nordic Tug have been towing on the Inside Passage for some years. Starting with a 14' Whaler, now an 18' Hewescraft. They wanted a more capable taxi and fishing/exploring boat that could take 4 people comfortably and keep them dry.

Traveling at 7 knots, they found that the longer boat was easier to tow, because the shorter one's hull speed was so much lower that it was trying harder to get up on plane.
