SW Boatworks has a couple of big lobster boats headed for the water: a 46` Wesmac that it finished and a Calvin Beal 44 for a customer who is “sizing up” from the 36` Calvin Beal he currently owns. SW also reports plenty of interest in its Ernest Libby-designed Young Brothers hulls, with a 40-footer and a 45`x15` model to be delivered in the spring.
