Can anyone share their experience with a 1970's 33'-34' Webers Cove?

They were one of the first fiberglass lobster boats .....most of them have stick built wheelhouses ...Small 165hp Perkins diesels were a common package back then.....They tend to be a little Rollie because of the round bilge but I have found that the boats with the deck Height as low as possible with a motor box were better sea boats and less likely to rock you to death......if you could post a few pictures and some more info on the boat you have in mind....good luck

A friend of mine finished this one back in the early 70's, it had a 4-71N in it and it moved right along, i fished with him for a bit and it was a great sea boat not to rolly but it was pretty low sided i know the shear was cut down by WC before they delivered the hull to him. We could stack on 120 44" traps on it when bringing traps home but stacked on 100 for moving around.
