For some reason I thought designed to go into a 40' conex, but obviously way too wide a beam.

What am I mixing it up with?

I have the same boat as Portager, 99 Wanderer Motorsailer, 75 hp yanmar turbo engine - 4hje something. 74 gals fuel, I run normally at 24-2500 rpms, rarely ever at WOT. I get about 1 gal/hr fuel use for avg 6 kts. Ran my boat from North Carolina to Elkton, Md. in the spring of '15 and then Elkton, Md. to Fort Myers, Fl. in the fall of the same year. Big water for me was the lower chesapeake - I can tell you for sure the Wanderer really does not like big beam seas.

TT35 at Palatka Municipal Docks

On the way to grocery shopping yesterday, I noticed a TT35 at the Palatka Municipal docks. On the way home, it had departed.

Today on the way to Home Cheapo, noticed it again so we stopped by to take a look. It didn't have a name so I am assuming it is hull #4 which is being used for marketing and potential customer sea trials. No one was on the boat (it is a rainy day).

A few observations. First, the top of the boat was covered by 6 solar panels. The Palatka docks lack power so that is probably a good thing. Secondly, the boat was powered by two Honda outboards which I assume were BFP60s. Have not previously heard Great Harbour was switching from Suzuki to Honda but have heard at least one complaint about Suzuki support to their dealers. Anyone who knows more about this, please chime in. Third, the boat was completely clorox which isn't pleasing at all. Certainly, they plan to sell it to a customer later for personal embellishments but don't think many admirals will be impressed with a clorox boat.

TT35 at the Annapolis Boat Show

Is a “Clorox boat” an all white boat?

If so, I agree. Those TT35s look a little bland and slab-sided in all white. Not pretty like my brown boat.

Yep, almost all white.
