This is a pic of a MC 20 that I took in Rockland Maine over the summer. Its a side console that was rigged for lobster. Check out the keel! Its 20 x 9 x 8' @ the transom & its a big little boat that I would like to own. Enjoy
Was the 32 MC hull sitting next to it when you were there. Did you see my drool over the boats. Been looking at that for 2 years know. Asked my wife if I could add these to my fleet, she said we better just go to rockland cafe for lunch then to Moody's diner for dinner and keep dreaming while I was eating that piece of homemade apple pie.
bought it directly from dave at mc in bernard at the time i also bought my 32 from him. the boat was quick drifted good, economical but pounded if it was a little longer i think it would have performed better
I have owned one for the past 6-7 years and you are correct it's the biggest little 20' you can buy. 115HP outboard pushes it at a top end of 30kts and a very nice cruise at hight teens low 20s. I wish it was a little heavier when it is sloppy out and spray/lifting rails would have been money well spent, but I didn't have it when i put it together. Every once in a while a following sea with gives you a wakeup moment, but that keeps you running things a little more conservatively in those conditions. Jojobee, you're so right, a pilot house has to be done just right or it looks all funky and stubby.
With a center console it's just a massive platform for fishing and a very economical running boat. A dawn to dusk fishing day might run 10-15 gallons of fuel, kinda nice on the wallet when my cohorts are running 20gal/hour in their 25' gradys.
Let me know if anyone has any questions, I give it a solid two thumbs up and money well spent.
Hey thanks for that Wildcard I have a hull built by John Hutchins or Northern Bay I bought it partially completed It has a suzuki 4 stroke 115 mounted on an Armstrong brackett I plan on launching early this spring
