I went on yachtworld, Dave, and I think I see the boat. It's the only "sale pending" NP 43. Might even be off the site by the time I finish writing this.

SHE'S FREAKIN' GORGEOUS!!!

Yup. I have come to think so as well. Here is the Yachtworld listing

I spent most of the day on the boat. We did some more exploring of the boat, took it to pump the holding tank, cleaned up the topsides since the pollen is falling heavy hear. We sanitized one water tank, rinsed it, and filled it. Still have the other tank to do.

Tomorrow we hope to go out for a few days around the South Sound and learn more about the boat. We will also fill it with fuel.

Yes, you'll find for starters you yell at each other a lot less. Maybe not at all..?
By the way, what anchor do you have to use until you get one those...you knowaddimean...

One of my "new" favorite boats! Such a fine beauty... Congrats, Dave!!

Wirth cruise stated at 8 knots... I bet if you did 6.5 to 7.25 knots your nmpg would be 33 to 50 percent improved. Maybe in the 2 + nmpg range. Can't beat that mileage with a beauty such as this boat!

And, she'll hit 12 knots to get out of harms way... nice power package.

Greetings,
Mr. dh. I think it's time to end this thread. After all you ARE a trawler owner.

Dave, this has been a really fun thread to follow. Nothing to memorize, nothing to copy, paste and stash in a folder I will lose track of and nothing to explode into an off topic debate.

Just fun to travel through the process with you...I envy you.

From a selfish perspective, because I am an admitted diesel dummy, I hope you continue the thread and take us along on all your new little discoveries, as you transition from 40 to near 400 HP.

It looks like some typical April weather, with a gentle mix of everything but snow, to get you started on your new lifestyle. "Hmmm...where to hang the wet gear in the PH???"

Enjoy every adventure.

Is "Kinship" your chosen name or that of the PO?

Wifey B: We're all voyeurs, loving to watch you lose your powerboat virginity.

It does make us feel good to see you enjoying your first time.

Change is good when one embraces it fully, and you certainly have.
