    This one was built back in my hometown in Maine this winter. She was shipped to Washington to fish dungies. I think she'll float ok in the PNW!

    Looks nice but SLOW! Buy the time you get to good fishing grounds it would be time to head back. Would have already caught a limit and be headed home in my boat by the time this one showed up. I like the color.

    I'm sure you could prop it for more speed. It's set up to cruise at 18kts at 70% power with 6400 gal of water in its crab tanks. Not bad for a 50' work boat.

    I agree on that. I'd take the Wesmac hull any day for what I would use it for. They sure have nice lines. The Hubris will be one heck of a tuna boat!

    Looks like that video must've been taken right before the Eastport Breakwater collapsed.

    Actually it was after, the collapse happened in December. My folks just got hired to be marine mammal observers (required by the feds) for the project. They're retired so it will be a fun job for them.
