My thoughts as well but when I think about it, how many twins have any protection other than some tunnels?

Eric...I will, I will.
When the stars are aligned and I can get my entire right foot in my left ear hole.

A broker on the weekend said two years for most buyers to "go buy a trawler." I'm only half way there.

Hawgwash,
Then half the fun's ahead!
I've always enjoyed looking to buy. But I'm of a personality type that likes things undecided.

Another solution to adding a skeg

The early Marine Trader 34's did not have a skeg under the rudder post.
First photo (not my boat) shows the original configuration. A PO of my boat extended the keel (glass) and added a channel/bar extension under the prop back to the post. It obviously doesn't provide as much protection, but can reduce the risk of fouling on a line or such. Note the bolts securing the skeg are thru-bolted, vs vertically into the keel.

How about double the prop protection?

Hmmm. I think I would be just as nervous with that arrangement. Seems to me it wouldn't take much upward push on that cantilevered channel to bend it up into the prop.
