    Looks like a GUPPY 2 with a Portsmouth sail. (Much like my first boat, the USS TRUTTA).

        We used to troll of Shagwong with monel line-the blues would be nice size and tough fishing-but jigging in 300ft of water from the bottom and hooking up with 15lb blues consistently was killer-of course in the race the boat is drifting at 7kts and you got a brake during the run back your drop point.-those were the days!
