Normally I don't post on the web but I thought this Northern Bay 38 has nice lines. A lot, a lot of attention went into gettnig the lines right on this boat. In my opinion a Northern Bay 38 sometimes can look top heavy and look like the trunk a little short. I cut the top down about 8 inches and put a third portlight to give the appearance of more length in the trunk. Beuaty is in the eye of the holder and is subjective. John Hutchins of Downeast Boats & Composites builds a great boat.
