In June 2004 I purchased the "Monica" from Dave Mason of South Bristol Maine. She had 3796 hours on the meter but was rebuilt February 2003. October 2019 engine hours were 5164 with approximately 1868 on the rebuild. She makes 10 to 12 knots at 2000 RPM burning 6 GPH. Overall she burns about 4GPH.
Mason used the boat for lobster and tuna fishing. I used it for recreational lobster fishing in Narragansett Bay, scuba diving and as an assist vessel on our shellfish farm. In 2008 I started to convert her to a cruise vessel. Mark Vinbury built the V-berth, head and sink down below. He enclosed the engine in the v berth area and at the helm.
