I believe this boat was in Shinnecock tied up at Jacksons Marina this winter for a little while. Looks very impressive....better than the pics.

Kinda reminds me of the tuna tangler too...does a boat like this really need birds?

It certainly looks like you'd have to watch the weather a whole less. A great platform for the fall. And I second that comment about at least some profile resemblance to The Dixon's. probably less in person, and more on film.

When I started work on the JohnDeWolf she had no riggers like a proper Eastern Rig, we had come back from Amory's Va and Larson decided the boat was going to day scallop. The outriggers were on and she was an entirely different boat, not in a good way. If a boats gonna roll I think it should be a quick and snappy thing, going side to on her in anything over 20knts was spooky. She'd take too long to recover and I quit. I hate them unless a rig is designed to have them, and wouldn't want to deal with that shit on a rod and reel boat.

If your line is going the hit the chain and bird you are in some shit they are out of the way I fished tuna on a boat with them and it worked great for us I like them and wouldn't think twice of using them when fishing and on a down east boat there great but make for wet boat if its blowing more then 20 you need full rain gear

Different strokes I guess, aside from the DeWolf I've never been on a rig smaller than 60' with them. She was a wet boat to begin with which made picking the pile interesting. I gotta photo somewhere taken on the Bookie with a slob bigeye hanging over the water wrapped up on a bird the crew forgot to pull in before hauling. Gotta figure out the scanner thing.
