Comments: Lobsterman Lewis Bishop has owned a number of boats in his career, but he said he’s been waiting to own a Young Brothers 40 “since I was in grammar school. I remember drawing pictures of these when I was a kid.” Finisher David Schlaefer gave Bishop’s Provider II the vintage look he was after, including her mitered-cornered five-window windshield.
