3007 aft cabin & fishing???

Postby PCOMT » June 30th, 2014, 8:06 am

I read a comment in another post indicating it might not be possible to fish from an Aft Cabin model. Is this the case?

We want to cruise up and down the western BC coast from Vancouver to Alaska and of course fish as we go. I suspect we will want to do some prawning as well.

Is the roof of the aft cabin strong enough to support walking on?

There is a tender and I see the ladder to the swim step, so I assumed that there is walking area on the deck over the aft cabin. Is this the case?

Can I expect the swim step to be submerged under normal load and slow speeds?

We have not visited the boat yet so we do not have reference to what is actually there. The pictures we have are from an ad and the unit we are looking at has canvas around the rails, making it hard to see what is there.

Any and all feedback is gratefully accepted:

Thanks

I am not a fisherguy. But I do know fishermen want to be at the water level, thus, a cockpit, The aft cabin roof is plenty strong for people, but you'd be way off the water
Thanks

That would be OK for the smaller fish, I expect I will have to get down onto the swin step for some of the bigger fish.

I suspect I will need a long handle on my net or even a gaff to land any fish of size. Or I could fish from the dingy as long as it is tied to the boat. If I were to tie into a 30-50 pounder, I suspect it would tow the dingy around pretty easily... While fun, it could be scary as well.

Thanks for the response, I appreciate it!
