Im not really interested in her googin... But for a 36 foot fiberglass lobster boat that is running and ready to go to work for $20,000, How could you go wrong. Some kid up in maine who is fishing out of a skiff could jump right into something that will surely advance his business for short money. for a kid in a small boat this would be the difference between carrying 20 traps or 85. And going fishing in 25 knots or not going. just sayin
These Newman hulls have a reputation of being very well built. The JD engine is probably wet sleave and designed to be rebuilt. There are certainly newer, wider hulls. However this seems like a good foundation for someone to move up from a much smaller boat. It is fishing now. I have to admit I may be bias. We are rehabbing an old Newman hull that was work boat and used year round. Our boat also has a JD engine. I hope someone buys it and puts it to good use.
