Mr. C. You mention off shore fishing. A trawler style vessel may be too slow for some types of trolling. They also have higher sides making it more difficult to land "the big ones" although a long gaff should help that.

I don't know how far off St. Augustine the gulf stream is but you do the math if you're only able to travel 7 or 8 knots as opposed to say, 20 or 25 knots.

Again, I don't mean to squash your plans but what do you want the boat to be able to do for you?
