Now, I just sit on the edge of the bed and tell her how good I used to be.

I'm done. Now returning you to the thread subject.

I do wish the Navy would settle on 2 or 3 hull designs. They spend a lot of my money on "test platforms".

This IS one of the designs they decided on for Littoral Combat Vessels. The different designs are for different missions. Horses for courses.

You are right RTF, though the description says "this vessel was built in China as a long-range, long duration expedition vessel", leads me to think it would have ample tankage.
If not,there are always the sails.... No reference to a get home wing engine either. Or water tankage. Not sure the advert writer is doing the boat a lot of favors. I think I see him reflected in a photo,taking his degraded i-phone pics as compared to a DSLR.

The LCS that even the USN says has "modest combat ability" - one of it's design concepts is that it can limp to safety after it gets hurt. Ugly to boot.

I wonder what the maintenance budget looks like for that 45' Admiralty a few pages back?

I do like that boat! Not sure about the million dollar price tag.

Anyone want to start a GoFundMe?

One for the electric, and traditional open(putt putt) launch, enthusiasts. Except this one doesn`t "putt putt".

Nice shear, nice stern, nice price. Wish there were mechanical photos. Can't imagine that a 4 cyl Jimmie would leave a lot of room around it in this boat. Maybe somebody around Friday Harbor could take a peek.
