Hello everyone,

I discovered your forum after I felt in love with downeast boats watching Wicked Tuna (Yes, is brodcast also in Italy). I started searching for the boats of the show and and I found this place.

In my free time I like to fish . Usually I fish with a longline made by 25-30 hooks rigged with live baits (In Italy longlines can be used by a sport fisherman with the limit of 200 hooks).

(my last catch! I'm the one on the right)



I go fishing when I go back to Bordighera to visit my family or for holiday (As I told you, its a nice place close to the French riviera).

I use my cousins boat for fishing, Its a little semi displacement hull powered by a Yanmar 75 hp. Its cruise at 13-14 knt and tops out at 21 knt (WOT).


Here a pictures of the kind boat that I use:

For the future I would like to buy a boat and the downeaster way seams interesting to me.

Regards,

(sorry for possible mistakes!)

Matteo
