I always go for a catheral hull due to the fact that if the weather turns nasty you can get back in quick also same applies going out, you can be on the fishing ground in no time, It has to be said however a clinker built hull is more stable.

Hi there, thanks for your reply, do you have a cathedrel hulled boat? Do you think cathedrel hulls can take a bashing from the weather, good for offshore?
Thanks
John

Cathedral hulls can take punishment but as stated in my previous post they are designed to beat a quick retreat when bad weather starts. I sold my boat see http://www.sea-fishing.org/ftopic-13428-0.html Rabbit2. I have now 2 small boats for fishing in good weather or the estuaries and shelterd bays.
Cheers

I have a 17ft Wilson Flyer with a Mercury 50hp ootboard, and it's the best..... It's very stable and quick with 50 horses on the back. It has loads of fishing space and a cuddy if it rains. A fab boat big grin

HI ,
I have a 18 ft Birchwood cathedral hull powered by a 35 horse merc..It is moored on the clyde coast, which at any time can become nasty{short sea big wave 5ft plus }.This is only my second season on salt water and am engoying it greatly.Common sense a bit of experiance and reading forums like this can be a great help.
Regards
John.

HI
I would guess arround 20mph.with 2 adults aboard With any more it won't plane and goes down to about 12mph. and up goes petrol consumption.
Regards,
John.

Hi, i have a pilot 460 cathedrel hull coupled with a 60hp yam and i love it, i've owned it for 12 years and i have no intentions of parting with her yet!
It's a great fishing platform very stable with enough room for a couple to fish comfortably.
The only downside is if it's a bit choppy it does slam quite a bit and can get quite uncomfortable.
my brother had a deep "v" hull it was great when you were moving but rolled quite a bit at anchor.
Just my 2 cents!
