She's still fishing. That was the first one on the Cape. Bought her in 1979. Some of my best fishing memories were in that boat. 

Cool! I had a 1980 23 walk-around.

I would run 80 feet of pot warp.

And if it was up to 60 deep I’d go a full hundred. When the current rips you need quite a bit of scope to keep the buoys above water

I had someone set directly on top of my traps for a good portion of the summer so I didn’t fish them till he left. It’s been a good fall run. Slowing down some from September but still decent counts on short soaks.

 

only fishing 5 traps now
