Great boat, great background. Two things, first you're supposed to ask us what kind of boat you need before you buy it. Second, what engines?

OMG, OMG, OMG.....
I should have known that!

So, what kind of boat should I have bought?

Are my two Cat 3208 Turbo's no good? I knew it, I should change them for Yanmars, right?

I saved it to my iPad, then I used an app called Snapseed to flip it, then re uploaded it to TF. I'm not sure why you had the issue in the first place, if you viewed it correctly before you uploaded.

Cheers

Ian-beautiful boat-love Fexas designs. But you have to get with here on TF!

What kind of anchor (whatever it is, it's the wrong one!). See HopCar, he can get you the right one! And chain or rode?

I have a 30 lb block of concrete on a nylon fliment line with a test strength of 50lbs. I know, right? Too much?

Ok this is fun stuff but the real threads on these issues are very informative.

You probably know this, but most things diesel related can be asked and found on boat diesel. A really smart 3208 guy there is Nautidawg.

Thanks. I actually prefer the Choey Lee trawler profile like yours to the Efficient that I have. But the Efficient has a lot of space. I call it my three bed, two bath mobile condo. Also the hull form allows for planing and can get up on the step. Booksays 18mph. I have not seen that but I can cruise quite efficiently at 10 knots at mid rpm range. And with 1,000 gallons of fuel, I can put in some distance.
Also, just absolutely love the true stand up/walk around engine room and the professional finish with all cables in raceways and the copper/nickel piping. Really is a small ship and therefore appeals to the professional mariner in me.
