All things being equal I think a westcoast troller hull design preferably in steel .Finding an example between 30-35 is a bit hard. Of course there are many other factors that contribute to a seaworthy boat. Many older trawlers in NZ were a compromise having a deep forefoot and wide shallow stern to carry the weight of trawl gear this did nothing for their seaworthiness. So the west coast troller has a more balanced Cp fore and aft and its weight is evenly distributed along its length Both of these examples are from Tad Roberts website

nzboy,

Very few in the PNW have a hull like in your 2nd example. Actually I don't think I've ever seen one. All have a deep forefoot.

The first example is the norm however most are not double enders. In the thirties they were.

Here's a good example of a boat currently being fished out of Craig Alaska. I'd go into quite a storm aboard Dixie ll.

The 2nd example I guess is tads take for a low displacement cruiser on northwest principles .Standpipe was asking for a design 30-35ft so there isn't much around. George buehlers 34 duck is more of a rule beater than a troller . Another pretty troller from Tads collection falls into this length is Fraser 3 Caught in a storm- what hull design?   30-35'-fraser3.jpg

nzboy,
There are lots of those boats on the BC coast. I think it's referred to as a combination boat that is trolling and gillnetting. The hull fuller than the older trollers w considerable flare fwd and the rounded squarish stern.
Very excellent boats I think.

Oh definitely downeast! But I may need a little bias! Haha. Actually I would tend to think it would more depend on the designer then the style of boat.
