At 25 knots the water would clearly be breaking away from the transom. To me that is definitely planing. When Eric comes back, it will be interesting to get his take on it.

That GB Heritage is surely a nice boat no matter what type hull it has.

That is an easy one. Life is a compromise.
All you got to do is list all the things that you like to do that involved some sort of expense you should include the boat on you list re arrange you list with the boat at the top of the list . Now here is the hard part select one item from the list that you know that you can do with out , and dump it , now you will have the money for your boat. At least thai is what i do, also i have found out that we guys have way to many toys, i canseem to keep up with all of mine.
Ps Don't sell your wife's car unless you buy her some roller skates and a cabin for your self in Alaska.

That is an easy one.

Life is a compromise in more ways than one.

All you got to do is list all the things that you like to do that involve some sort of expense you should include the boat on you list , re arrange you list with the boat at the top of the list .

Now here is the hard part select one item from the list that you know that you can do without , and dump it , now you will have the money for your boat. At least thai is what I do, also i have found out that we guys have way to many toys, I can't seem to keep up with all of mine.
