Thanks for the words of wisdom! I know that fish market and restaurant -- nice place!!
You know, before I got on this 32 Mitchell Cove kick I was on a 29 H&H kick. I really cannot decide what I want to go with, but either way I need to save more money. I want to have a solid 50K to put down.
This 40 H&H is just exactly (mostly) what I want. I mean the layout is pretty much my ideal lobster rig!!
I am so confused......
The fish market & restaurant is now run by Olie's great grand son also named Olie he used to manage the restaurant across the street from the fish market it was called Evelyn's back when i was fishing there don't know anything about it now. I think something around 32-36 would be a nice size for what your wanting to do. Are you planning to have a crew or fish single handed? I had a crewman for lots of years once he left me i started fishing by myself and really loved it, i could catch less and still make great money. The only guy on my boat after that was "Mr. Plywood da trap tray"
he was never late for work cause he was bolted to the gunnel
There is a 32 MC close to my friend Joe's boat in Shark River, it might be for sale. There is also a red 42 Duffy? on the hard in the back of Bry's property just up the road from where Joe ties up, i'd bet Bry might own it for the storage charges, stop in at Bry's shop on rt 35 and ask about it. If you get some time go down there and talk with both Joe & Joey tell them i sent ya, they are both great guys.
Here's my Maine Coaster tied up next to Kleins
I used to own this dock on the north channel of shark river it just up the street from Joe's boat where the street comes out behind the motel
