Does the XC 42 readily snag lobster pots

Hello. Does anyone have experience sailing an XC 42 in lobster pot infested waters, such as the Maine coast? Do pots readily snag on this boat? Thanks.

No more than any other boat with the same draft (they can have several drafts) and the same type of keel. They don't use a torpedo keel but a conventional fin bulbed keel. In fact many of the new production boats that use torpedo keels would be far worst.
