Performance at Sea
I have done Atlantic coastal cruising and Resolute handles rough seas like most trawlers. She takes seas 45 degrees of the centerline from Starboard and Port forward and aft with out an appreciable roll. Beam seas (that is 45 degrees forward and aft) of the beam line give the typical trawler roll. In close quarters shallow water and steep seas I found it more comfortable to actually tack for short periods. However, her overall roll limits are quite acceptable (subjective opinion). This vessel would do great in the shallows of the Bahamas . It has a 6”X ½” steel plate that runs the length of the keel. It draws 9” at the bow and tapers to 3’ 8” at the stern. Props and shaft are about 18” above the keel. The bow has lots of buoyancy and does not bury itself. From Owner 4/2/2011
