You could have had Bill pick you up a Maine built lobster hull when he came up!

Great pics Doug, good showing of lobster boats yesterday and that Bounty Hunters a nice looking boat!

Hi Brent, while Bill was there I was bidding on a lobster boat that you
Built years ago . I went back and fourth for 1/2 a day until this lady
Dropped the price to what I asked . No one was bidding on it so I went to
Sleep only to have someone else bid $5 more on it at 5:30 in the morning.

I was so mad !!!!!
It was a static model that I was going to convert to rc.
I hear that you are working on a 48" hull .

I know the boat and the actual builder, it was Danny Fletcher in Pemaquid. Probably my name was fresh in her mind from her husband talking about me dragging with my boats in New Harbor. Danny builds a nice lobster boat but the trawlers he has done are really awesome. He only ever did 1 R/C model and its on display at Shaws Wharfs bar.
