I saw her early December when I hauled out at Kittery Point. Caught my eye and I checked her out. She's an old proud girl. You don't see many western rigs around anymore.

That looks like the many thousands of fishing boats in the US and BC Northwest. And half off the old woodies are for sale on any given day. Also many FG and steel boats of a similar type. The local magazines esp. the fishing trade ones are full of adds. Some are cheap until you start refitting them. I can see where they may not be common on East Coast and don't remember many when I lived there. Many in the NW have turned these boats into pleasure cruising craft. Most make about 6-7.5K on small fuel burn and have deep draft( draft no problem in NW).
