Avalon for fishing was created by Jayarrgh
This ad on SF bay craigslist caught my eye: monterey.craigslist.org/boa/5087327641.html

Modifying a classic Glasspar into a dedicated fishing boat probably seems a kind of sacrilege to many GOA members. However, there is a good hull under there and it does make sense if you want to maximize the boat for one purpose. In this case, the conversion looks well done. It is now a mostly open boat with a good size cockpit free of structures. A moderate size engine (fairly new), tiller steering and some rod holders. What more do you need? Well, maybe put in a seat for the boat driver or add a center console with remote steering and controls. Anyway, that is just the way I think.

Note: the ad says 1962 Avalon but that hull is clearly an earlier version.
