Default Hanson Boats - St Pete FL?

I saw a local captain a while back put his new boat on the trailer, and asked what it was.. Never heard of it before.

I have been looking around and then saw an advertisement on CL.

Anyone have any info on "trevor hanson" boats?

Josh

"Trevor" sounds familiar, was the boat you saw almost zero deadrise with lower gunnels and super wide? I looked at a hull a couple years ago and researched it back to a guy named Trevor. I found the coast gaurd info on the hulls for a few different years. They seemed to build a boat and then shut down for awhile and pop back up later. Last I saw one of the hulls it was out on 62 ave near 49st on the north side. hth

I got curious and went to CL, same boat I researched, looks to be a good bay boat set up. You could take a orchestra out with you in that thing and stil have room to fish.

i like the big wide beam. i talked to trevor. seemed like a good guy, more of a craftsman than a salesman. apparently this boat can run easy with very little power as it almost completely flat in the transom. all handlaid glass n resin. Hand rolled gelcoat. Nothing automated about his shop.

The hull looks alot like the research boats, only difference is the research boat has the motor mounted in front of the console.

I've often wondered about that. Why do they do that?

The research boats were old mullet boats that let their nets roll off the transom hence the mid ship motor placement

Trevor has been building boats for awhile and he does a good job. The trevco 23 is more well known and the hanson skiff is the same hull without a gunnel cap etc. It's very basic commercial style no BS.

Think of a flatback version of the bonefish 23/IPB 23/ East cape 23 etc.

Motors are up front to run soft/hard seine net out of the back. And gillnet in certain areas. Late fall/ winter=roe season.

Have been running 1 of these boats 4 years love the boat but it has been shorted work it is a very thin boat you could punch through it with strong fist. it is definitely a nice boat however if you get 1 built extra glass in the hull.
