I think a person can get away with a little more freeboard at the bow if there is a significant amount of sheer involved. I think that it is great that you are looking to build something with a more traditional look.
Anyway, the Kingston Lobsterboats are in the 20' range and I'd be designing a trailerable daysailer.
I sent you a message with my email, but you shouldalso be able to just click on my header and go from there. Location: The Netherlands Looking at the hullform and waterlines of the lobsterboat, I believe she could be pretty fast - her lines are not so dissimilar to those of the fast racers of the past, save for the keel - I am not truely familiar with the circumstances of the waters those boats used to navigate. When I try to email your header there is no option for attachments, so I will email the other. So anyway expect an email from me, the return address should give you a good clue as to who it is from. Location: Cape Coral Fl I would say to contact Ralph Stanley in SW harbor Me.

Some of my mistakes: When I built my loft floor I planned it to later be my building frame,therefore the frame was 2' on center. I'm still wary of my 5' freeboard at the bow, however I did see a nice Atkin design in the same loa range with 4'-9" at the bow. When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals. General Comments: I have been collaborating with Pete Kass of John's Bay Boat for sevaral years now.
The majority of the yard's production is commercial vessels for the Maine lobster fishery: Occasionally, Johns Bay builds a lobster yacht.
However, Phillip Bolger has published lines for at least one true lobster boat and for several boats of related model in his books, and they may be available for free in your local library. Location: USA Low freeboard aft makes it easy to haul the lobster traps in. Location: MX Contact Professional boatbuilding magazine, there is a good article with information about lobster boats, I don't remember the issue number, but I'm quite sure is very good and complete, they may be able to send you a copy.

First setting sail in the waters of Northern Maine in the late 19th century, the Peapod’s shallow build served best for inshore lobster fishing.


Introduced around the beginning of the 20th century, engine-driven vessels started to replace the earlier man and wind-powered boats. By the 1950’s offshore lobster fishing became more prevalent, along with the advent of those familiar wire-mesh lobster traps requiring the boats to have more space on board. Notable features on present day Lobster Boats include a high bow, which is intended to push aside the sea and any larger waves that it may produce. There are many types of Maine lobster boats on the water, but the defining feature that all possess is each hull joins into the skeg. Since the time of the sail powered boats the men chasing lobsters have always been game for a race. Over time Maine has been best known for its manufacturing and building of Lobster Boats, originally used strictly for fishing, these majestic Maine Boats are now being used as family ocean vessels or lobster yachts. It was not until the 1950’s that some lobster boats were equipped with a hydraulic pot hauler.
Your design looks as if it could actually plane with enough power.If you could send me your email address I'll send you a pic of the halfmodel and lines plan.
When I indulge myself more and more in the boats of the past, the more I start to appreciate them. The areys pond daysailer looks no more like the lobsterboat it is purported to be based on than the production boats I see in all the yards. The recently launched Julieann is an example of this, and we are currently in the planning stages for a 44' classic that will begin construction in the summer of 2002.
We modify that hull to fit the new requirements, changing depth, freeboard, station spacing, etc.
Together, we can work through compromises, and I always have complete confidence in the outcome.
We literally depend on their safe condition, their seaworthiness and their good fortune to keep us alive. Most of the Maine lobster boats are small, ranging in size from 22 to 40 feet and operated by a solo captain or with a small crew of sternmen (deck hands). The boats of old, made strictly of wood, were not as structurally sound and durable as today’s fiberglass hulls (introduced in the 1970’s) that act as a sturdy shield against the ocean and battering winds. The Peopod measured about 15 feet long and was built like a canoe and shaped like the garden vegetable.
These engine-powered designs had their origin in turn-of-the-century naval torpedo boats, making them fast, narrow and easy to maneuver, similar to their warship cousins.
It possesses easy access to lobster traps, all the while giving protection to the crew aboard.


According to Commercial Fisheries News’s, lobster boat races have become a popular sport and pastime. In Maine the R is optional in the alphabet! If you’ve ever had the pleasure of dining on lobster along the coast of Maine, then you already know fresh Maine lobster is the best in the world.
It's been under construction for at least 2 years, and he has some very interesting ideas published in woodenboat and boat design quarterly. I'm going to draw it full size the first time around, then draw the lines from the actual. They made me a senior member , I hope nobody expects any intelligent responses from me all of a sudden! To the modified hull, I then add the deckhouse and interior arrangement and work out powering, tanks, and analyze the weights and balance of the boat.
Larger boats can fish in deeper waters and farther away from shore.  Over the years lobster boats have changed due to the evolution of marine technology and the increasingly competitive economic battle among those who make their living on the sea. Equally important, the fiberglass boat required less maintenance and repair than their wooden counterparts.
Created by Harold Gower, this boat is still used today to navigate the seas for the great prize all lobster fisherman search for.
What’s more, many modern day vessels are equipped with hydraulic haulers, bottom depth sounders, radar and GPS.
The historic Lowells Boat Shop, the oldest continuously operating boat shop in the United States,  still makes the Dory today.
It’s double-end design made it possible to row in either direction making it easy to navigate in the shallower waters closer to the coast. Though the boats now are larger and use more fuel, some believe that in the future, we should go back to the Brimstone because of its ability to move faster and easier through the water with less power, thus saving fuel. The lobster tails were so incredibly, melt-in-your-mouth, tender and they tasted absolutely delicious! I will be ordering more frozen lobster tails soon and will be passing on my positive experience to all my friends!.
