Robin Jean- Phil Bolger Boat Design Pics By Paul Frontiero

When looking at the boat what I notice is that the deck of the boats is really deep, it seems lower than waterline.  There are no scuppers that I can see.  I wonder how they clean the deck and get the water and fish guts out?  Also if it took on water from a rogue wave how would it clear itself of the water?

Interesting.  There must be some type of system to clear the water.  Maybe they rely on pumps to pump the water overboard.

From what I understand this is one of Phil Bolger’s efficient boat designs.  It is currently tied up behind Cape Ann Marina. 

Long and slender and tall like a banana.  Old Phil being the master boatbuilder that he is must know what he is doing but I don’t know how  this stays upright if it takes a sea to it’s side with a high center of gravity.  I defer to the master boatbuilder though.  He must know what he is doing after all these years.

 I would embrace the whole banana theme and paint her yellow with black stripes!
