Looks like a Pompano Pounder 2 me 2. One hell of a fish raising boat. Most old Rybos had a different sheer and the bridge would be back a little further on the house and less cockpit.

LOL. The flat ass says it is probably a 37 Merritt as opposed to a 43 without even needing to see anything else in comparison. Maybe the best fish raisers ever but if you anticipated waves, it would be better to have a 36 or 37 Rybovich or a Whitcar Shearwater 40. The old Merrits were designed to spin on a fish and comfort be damned. the 43 is stil considered by many to the the ultimate bluefin boa even if it will drown you in the process. Arguably the most singularly purpose built saltwater fishing boats ever. The funny part is that the 37 still may be the perfect boat for big fish in places like Kona and Central America where you have to worry less about things getting nasty.

Hardly, owning and maintaining one of those pieces of history is a fairly exclusive club, and to build a new one, you don't want to know how much. There were only a baker's dozen of 37's made I believe and they don't look anything like the cabin-cruiser "Wheeler" from the show.
