RE: Does anybody know anything about an Ocean Yacht 40+2 trawler?

In my opinion this boat is not a planing hull at all. I think it was at one time but the builders/designers modified it to be fuel efficient but they stopped short of putting smaller engines in it. And as far as seaworthy-ness goes I'll bet the original planing hull was less seaworthy. As I've said before one could make a 7 to 8 knot trawler out of most SD trawlers by reshaping the stern basically like this "Ocean" and installing much smaller engines. One could get a big fuel efficient boat very cheaply this way. I originally thought of doing this to a wood Chris Craft but they are too flat fwd.
