You could do the same thing by welding up a little outboard prop to a prop nut.

Extended passage making with twin 5.9s and one 500 gallon tank? What's that, maybe 600nm range at hull speed?

Maybe it's just how the picture was taken, but the props look to hang down 1' below any other part of the hull. Could be fun in the shallows of the ICW.

That Westbay hull was used for many commercial vessels including patrol boats before it was used as a yacht. It has significant scantlings.

A few of them do charter service in the area.

I've heard that too. This one looks reminiscent of the Bayliner 45. I like it.

Significant s scantlings?

There's almost no hull below the WL. And the WL is below the light color and the black. It must be really light. I'm not impressed at all. A light flat bottomed dock queen. And it says "ocean ready" almost right away in the text. Newish and Cummins is good but ................

It is not a trawler. It is a yacht. Westbay Sonship is a relatively large semi-custom builder of yachts actually. Known for quality construction.

I do see many of them go by my house on a regular basis. Often times at twenty plus knots.

Still not my dream boat though...

Greetings, Some where within this thread there was mention by several on the PT boats. Very interesting post. Today from another site "WoodyBoats" comes this article on the PT 305 rebuild. Thought it would contribute to the earlier remarks.
Cheers,
Al

Saw these two boats on the side of the highway in Castroville CA. Looks like they had been salvaged for the lead and then discarded. One of them had lots of good teak in it that could be reused if anyone is interested.
