Top Boat

The top boat is the boat that scores the most points across the 4 NPSUC bottom fishing competitions with a maximum of 20 fish (4 fish per species). Only 3 fish per species are scored per competition (15 fish maximum). The winner at the end of the season is awarded the Harry Wilson Memorial Trophy.

The winner of each individual Top Boat competition is the boat with the most points across a maximum of 15 fish caught in that competition (3 fish, per species, per competition).
