RE: What about a 35 Californian sedan?
Well, to put the finishing touches on this saga I seatrialed the Californian 35 Convertible and was quite disappointed. With a clean, freshly painted hull, 1/4 fuel, 5 people only could achieve 16knots wot, turning 2800 rpm on the old 3208s. Backed down to 2400 and dropped down to 12 knots. The props were 21x20 and were shinny clean. Boat was very nice, but way under powered unless you want to go trawler speed. Passed on it. Still looking. Thanks for all you help.
