For 60 years Paul Chapman has been building boats the old fashioned way, alone and by hand. This newly constructed boat is one of fourteen 37’boats that are fishing from South Thomaston Maine to Point Judith Rhode Island.
Downeast hull designs are known for their soft, dry ride. They ride at relatively flat angles at all speed ranges. Moreover, like many private airplanes, their single engine design cuts fuel and engine maintenance costs in half while providing a keel that gives great protection to the propeller and rudder. Due to the nature of custom built boatsthey can cost more than a production boat but remember the bitterness of poor quality lasts long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten. Get aboard today and "let the boat do the talking".
