American Tug AT-41/AT-435
Many charters later, we've not been on this boat, but it seems to tick all our boxes. We love the mid-berth most of all. There seems to be a good owner's group - but need to be an owner to join (plus and minus). Quality looks pretty high as does Tomco's support - and with the wide beam they pack a lot of boat into the length.
How does the ~16 foot beam work out in Seattle and the Salish Sea? Anyone put in a folding swim step to get under some of the picky length limits? Shilshole has a 42' slip available now, 46' in a ~year. Overhangs are not allowed.
Sea handling? With the wide beam and not so fine entry I worry she'd pound in a head see and maybe be a handful in a following.
Any guides out there for changes over the years or between the 41 an 435?
