Not sure I understand his question but believe he is asking how high the cockpit deck is from the waterline. This is an issue in the TT35.

One looks like Ken Fickett said “build me a heavy fricken duty flybridge worthy of the boat”, and the other says “give me something that doesn’t have to scream out FLYBRIDGE”. Both look good to me, which again, says something about the flexibility of that form. The GH’s are practical, stout, and unapologetic “in your face” designs. Seeing them in person and next to any other vessel of similar length is the only way you can know how big and brutish they are.

Hi Larry,

I took these photos especially for you while we were at Laishley Marina in Punta Gorda. It is not everyday you have a GH37 parked next to a KK Manatee.

Insandity in her slip at New Bern with whiskey barrels still secured on her topsides. The crew will be departing at the end of the week to continue the trek to New York City and delivery of the barrels.

I double checked my freeboard measurements and it is about 42", which leaves the cockpit deck 30" inches above the waterline. The only water that splashes in the cockpit comes from my garden hose while scrubbing the deck.

Hey, thanks for that. Doesn’t do it justice though, especially since if you were able to open up the stern of that GH-37 in the picture, you could still drive the Manatee right in there and never touch anything. Heck, I’ve been looking for a spare GH-37 or N-37 hull to grab for my own personal dry-dock!

Why does "militaristic" comes to mind?
