About ten years ago I was mating on a charter in Ambrose channel and that boat swept across our stern and cut all our trolling lines without any conceivable provocation. Bye Bye

I've fished it. It was...interesting. Accurately anchoring for Tog seemed to be a challenge.

Seemed like a nice rig and he had the turbo's spooled the whole time we were underway.

Boat seemed to have nice manners to me, but what do I know?

Not surprising to see it up for auction...

HA HA I fished down there and these 2 statements are 100% about the operation.
1) Boat was run in the corner the entire time.
2) On the second drop of the day the mate slacked the anchor rode on the #2 anchor, ran it under the boat and into the props. Then on the way in the shackle on the #1 anchor came unbuttoned in the pulpit and the anchor fell off while the boat was running in the corner again.

Clean fast boat that sat in the sea well..

Deff a nice boat but not a blackfish boat. Fished it and was not impressed at all. Anchoring seemed to be a huge problem as most of the boat spent the entire trip without feeling chunk at all. Not fun playing in the mud all day.

Sounds like operator issues...not necessarily the boat itself...

Dumb question I'm guessing, but what does "in the corner" mean in reference to runnning a boat? I never heard the term.

In the corner means at or near wide open throttle.

I agree that the anchoring issues were operator related, nothing to do with the boat, although the design of the boat left me scratching my head, the bow is basically unfishable with a cap rail that was over 2' wide, the mate actually had to lay on it to net fish and a cabin that was better suited for shuffleboard than sitting. Squatted quite a bit at speed which seemed inefficient but I could be wrong.
