    Mr Efficiency, You have squarely nailed the answer, "It depends".
    If there is any hard and fast rules on the subject they have eluded me for many years.
    Sure some boats raise fish better than others, and I have both caught and not caught a large number of gamefish on a wide variety of boats.
    This is the allure of fishing, and exactly why the sport is not called "catching".
    My motto is "If you don't go, you'll not know" so wake me early, eh?

    I have written several messages to the editor of that BlueWater magazine, and he plans to do a second article on that vessel. AND he is interested in discussing some of my concepts after he finishes a trip to visit an old fishing friend in Tahiti. Looking forward to that.
