This is a quote from the article, seems Spencer Lincoln got involved in '81 so maybe that 1979 - 35' for sale is really a 34'??
Asked what it was that made his boats desirable, Richard replied that they were different from what was out there -- and they were faster. His was the first 34-foot fiberglass lobster boat. Spencer Lincoln designed all the others: the 26, 30, 31, 35, 41, 42, 48, and the 50. Richard purchased the mould for a 56 from another company, from which he made three hulls.
The boat that made Duffy & Duffy so popular, though, was a 35-footer that Lincoln designed in 1981 that was much wider than the 34. "It had a flare to it," Richard said. "It was pretty."
AB has or did have a choice of high shear or low shear for lobsta to make it easier to reach and set traps. When I bought my kit, AB said you get an extra Knt or so on the low shear and it looks nice but resale a little harder due to lack of gunnel height making it less safe for fishing or kids since it does not come up to your knees. I do not remember if there was a difference in price for the low or high shear and it was 8K more for the core vs solid glass and 2k more for vynalester back in 98.
