I rode a civilian one one out of Cairns AU in 1991. Fast and smooth in 4-7 foot swell and chop en route great barrier reef for diving. Wave piercers are a cool design. Not cheap.

I'm in the small boat group (not a crowd here) and I like it. I'd like it even better w/o the raised foredeck.

Found this handsome devil while over-nighting in a marina in Cape Coral, FL just before turning off the Okeechobee Waterway and heading north on the Gulf Coast ICW. The rear door was a roll-up galvanized type like a garage. Someone spent some money to make it like this, but what a result.

Pack I agree.
That's awful.
Interesting though.

Mark,
What an extreme bow rake. They weren't looking for a long WLL.

Nope...no photoshop on that one. I have to admit that they carried the theme through to the pilothouse quite well. Hmmm. I wonder what a wannabe window version would look like?

I like Big Bud. However not in love with big bow wave and stern churn displayed on video. Must cut down on cruise efficiency somewhat. Maybe makes for better handling in rough frontal seas?? Be interesting to see if Eric or Tad comments in the wave/churn action. - Art

Art-it looks like she reaches close to her max beam pretty quickly from the bow. Looks like it creates a kind of "shoulder" just aft of the bow that pushes up that big bow wave. Certainly not what one would call a :fine entry"!

Yet another beauty pops up on YachtWorld. Forward slanted windows, flybridge and a single engine. Plenty to argue about!

<Big Sigh> So many toys, so few funds!

The 14-ton, full-displacement Coot has a big bow wave too, yet gets 1.5 gph at cruising speed even without sail assist.

The helicopter garage?

What is Coot's cruising speed... 6 knts? That means 1.5 gph = 0.25 gpnm. If cruise is faster with same gph then gpnm would even be a bit less. Great boat mileage!

For the following calcs I levelized costs of diesel and gasoline.

"Your Coot": At 0.25 pgnm = 4 nmpg = 100 mile trip on 25 gal fuel X $4.00 per gal = $100. At 6 knts = 2 - 8.3 hr days of cruising.

"Our Tolly": Can get up to 2.75 nmpg on one engine at 6 knts; which would = 57 gals (a little more than twice your fuel use and twice the cost) on 100 mile trip in the same 2 - 8.3 hr days of cruising.

However, I go for the gusto on 100 mile trips. Doing 17 knts and getting 1 nmpg for 100 miles = 100 gals X $4.00 = $400. And at 17 knots = 5.88 hrs cruising. Which means that for $300 extra fuel dollars I get 10.78 extra hours at anchor or at dock for party time and my trip is completed in one long morning. So...the extra $300 can be divided by the extra 10.78 hours of party time which means my party time is worth $27.83 per hour!

Everything is relative... now isn't it!! The good ol' trade off factor comes into play!

Yes, 6.3 knots at 1800 rpm out of a near-maximum of 2200 producing 7.3 knots. (I'm not in a hurry.)
