I was more wondering about the 2008 wife - that makes her about 10 years old....

I sent a reply to your PM

Here is a link to one of the boat reviews that mentions the 250 gal fuel capacity.

https://www.denisonyachtsales.com/po...acht-research/

As I said, I have seen references to 300 gal cap'y but I believe the 250 is more accurate.

Enjoy the new boat.

Curious what led you to a hard top model, ie no fly bridge. I certainly appreciate the virtues of steering from a lower helm in cold or bad weather. I went from a Mainship 34T (the fly bridge version of your boat) in SoCal where 99% of the time we steered from the top to a Pilot 34 with no fly bridge when we moved to Connecticut where the warmer, more protected lower helm was appreciated.


BTW, I love the cabin space of the 34T or the 34HT. We picked the Pilot 34 for its better cruising speed, the boat's downeaster image and the fact that used 34HTs were few and far between. But I missed that huge main salon while hanging out at anchor.


Where do you boat and what led to the no fly bridge decision?

I didnít even notice it didnít have a FB. Just donít think about them unless itís part of a conversation.
With the hull and running gear as designed she sure has a shallow draft. Youíll be sniffíin around in some shallow waters indeed.
Oh .. nice wife too. Iíve learned from TF posts that thereís lots of really wonderful wives here.
And disregard Daveís ďitĒ comment. Think he got his words fliped. But refering to your wife as ďthe wifeĒ youíre not guilty of.

Great Question. the main reason was wifes comfort, when you have a fly bridge everything is magnified through the boat especially at anchor. and second the fly bridge is a huge windsock.
