Have you checked what the plans call for? His plans are usually fairly thorough and offer options of engines, transmissions and props. If that does not answer your questions, visit his website and leave him a message. He is very responsive to questions or comments.

Welcome to the forum, Longbeard.

That seems to be a heavily modified Bruce Roberts PCF 40. Maybe the hull is a PCF design, but the cabin is substantially different.
I almost bought one when shopping for my present boat, and did a bit of research on them. Below is the PCF I was looking at, which was built according to the Bruce Roberts plans.

Yes its been modified alot. I sent a picture to bruce and he confirmed its design. Theres alot more cabin space than the regular design. But takes away from the trawler look.

Post your question on boatdiesel. There are a lot of Cummins pros on that site that can help you with transmission, shaft and prop selection.
