I've always liked the boats from Safehaven Marine in Ireland. Bit far to ship a boat, but they do make them nice. Their videos of rough water testing are impressive. This is listed as a 38 Genesis sports angling/dive boat. They've made them down to 28', but most seem to be 38 and up. Available in monohull, cat, single or twin engine, flybridge or not, etc. These things will pound, but only after coming off a 15 footer. :D

Mark and I have been talking, but he's running silent and deep this week. Either he didn't like my opinions or he's busy fishing every day.

Eric I must have missed your message???.. I was fishing today, clients put 50 tuna in the box in 1.5 hours on a single bait stop!

If I had my choice this is basically what I want..I know its a dream but you asked:

34 feet long
11.6 wide
hull that cuts PNW chop/swell yet is stable at rest when fishing

(2) separate 1 ton fish holds (with rsw would be awesome but not required)

actual "fish around " cabin like I have now that allows people to safely fish all the way around the boat

(8) suspension seats inside cabin

stand up head with small window

Defiance 120 gallon bait tank

twin power plants

25-30 kt cruise without stressing engines (Loaded)

1.5 mpg minimum (actual mileage loaded in normal seas)

electronics, rocket launcher, washdown, riggers etc...that's all easy stuff

Boat has to trailer without pilot car

I don't think such a boat exists. For one you have this to deal with:
Washington Pilot Car / Escort Vehicle is Required:
2 Lane Highways:

Over 11′ wide requires 2 pilot cars

Thanks I will have to check into that since I was told the limit was 12 ft before a pilot car is needed...

I am in New England this week if you want me to test ride a Downeaster!

Seriously though, talk to Kvichak in Sesttle. They have good experience with the RBMs and pilot boats. They should be able to steer in you in the right direction.

I worked for a truss company in Oregon, it was always a pain trying to remember the rules for Washington when delivering here. I do remember it was very strict and the wsp did enforce these rules. There were different rules for many roadway types. You just about need a lawyer to decipher it all

Yes I can understand...all WSP wants to do is write as many tickets as possible that's for certain

Actually Mark, it reads that at 11ft a pilot car is required, so better make it 10'11" on paper!!

33 Ocean Sport Roamer. Just have to deal with high prices and I/O's. A salesman told me at the boat show two years ago they would entertain building an inboard, but him saying that and it actually happening are two entirely different things. And it wouldn't be cheap. Hell, they're not cheap even in production mode let alone custom.

Won't meet the W/A spec though.

Mark, did you get my email with the links to the Farallon boat? That's the one I sent that you never replied to, and it had a TON of information based on our previous discussion.

Also don't hesitate to just give me a phone call.

Did a little more legwork yesterday and found a couple other potential options in the used/refit realm that are very close to what we talked about.

If you didn't get that email, I'll send it again. It has a more complete weight study in it to show the actual payload requirements and horsepower for a given load in most hullforms. It's the meat to the matter.
