boat for Chesapeake Bay

Post by joseph a regget » Sun, 07 Sep 1997 04:00:00


Hello all.
   Would like to get a boat for fishing in the Chesapeke Bay. A friend
has a Bayliner Trophy. Seems good size but has one annoying thing that
I hate. When chumming or drifting, it rocks back and forth WAY too
much for my taste. Maybe it is too light or some hull configuration.
But I do NOT want one that does that. Would like something to troll
and chum. Used ok  under 20k if possible. My thinking would be a
center console with dual outriggers. Can I get something like that for
under 20k? Probably no more than 4 people at a time on boat. What kind
of hull? How much power? how long? Would like a starting point to
look. 10 million kinds of boats are too many for me<argh> :)

 I'm afraid you can't pin this one on Bayliner. The Trophies have modified vee
hull bottoms. Modified vees and deep vees roll in beams seas. Period.

That's why the Boston Whaler Montauk is still a popular seller after 30
years of production.
