Sea Otter 2 Skipper Paul Kilpatrick
Voted Whitby’s Number 1 Charter Skipper, Sea Otter 2 Skipper Paul Kilpatrick is perhaps the most experienced and hard working skipper currently fishing out of Whitby. Paul has been fishing boat and shore at Whitby since his passion for angling was ignited for winter cod fishing from the shore back in the 1970’s.
Paul has 30 plus years of charter fishing under his belt and runs perhaps the most consistently booked fishing boat at Whitby. In 2013 Sea Otter 2 was probably at sea more than any other boat in the port and their catchces were second to none.
Sea Otter 2 The Boat
Sea Otter 2 is a Lockin 33. Lockin are renowned for their stability and safety, in fact the same hull of these boats are often used in manufacturing lifeboats, so you know when you step aboard Sea Otter 2 you are boarding one of the safest fishing vessels in the country.
It’s been proven time and again that these crafts are superb sea boats and can also do speeds in excess of 20 knots giving much more fishing time for your money.
Paul Says – “Lockin was my number one choice. The 33 has a proven track record and having been on many vessels I just knew that a Lockin was the one for me”.
Sea Otter 2 has a caterpillar 420 hp engine giving the power required to cruise long distances in a short time so you can spend less time cruising and more time fishing.
