Katlyn Joan owner Kyle Kennedy had high praise for both finisher Peter Taylor (“a really hard worker show pays attention to details” and his new Osmond 42 (“a great sea boat”).  The Katlyn Joan is outfitted with an aluminum stern extension (4′ deep at it’s widest point ), which will allow for deck loads of at least 200 traps, according to Kennedy.
