Brooksie,
Is that (19 ton) the usual displacement?

I'm going to take back my thinking that 55hp would be plenty for the W36 ... maybe 65.

The Grey is 80 right?

No, I don't think so. 24000 lbs is the brochure weight so 13 regular tons seems enough. The Grey is 50 @ 2000. I'm very happy with my 50hp only use 13-14 at cruise.

OK good,
my first knee jerk must have been ok. I thought 55hp should be enough.

I saw 36s for the first time at the rondy and supposed it would be fun to walk around on the foredeck of the PH and I was correct. Loved it. I thought the wheelhouse was too high but the boat I was on has active stabilizers and of course he said it was no problem. Now if I can only find a sedan w a raised wheelhouse and a walk around engine room ........

14hp?? I think I'm using close to 20 on our W30.

By cruise I mean where I run for maximum mileage 1 or 1.1 S/L 10hp & 14hp prop load repectively. With a more efficient engine this could be less than the 1GPH that I now burn.

Very nice boat.

And Eric, that is likely GROSS TONNAGE that is stated. Gross tonnage is a measure of volume more than anything and really has nothing to do with the actual weight of the boat. It is usually on the certificate of documentation and likely what the seller used in the ad.

<<So GT is a kind of capacity-derived index that is used to rank a ship for purposes of determining manning, safety and other statutory requirements and is expressed simply as GT, which is a unitless entity, even though its derivation is tied to the cubic meter unit of volumetric capacity.>>

Everything you wanted to know about tonnage:
Tonnage - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Thanks much John.

That fits this boat. They are VERY full in the bow and stern and I believe amidships too. Sort of a mini-freighter/yacht hull. For a 36' boat you could put lots of weight on board and hardly notice it. I like the basic hull design better than the W30. Unlike the 30 and 40' Willard's the 36 is designed by William Gardner. That's about as good as design gets.

Remember this picture? They are like a little ship. And when meeting a sea they will rise to the occasion. One can see the "gross volume" is large indeed.

And I like the "tumble home" of the FB.

Dang....I missed this on my radar? I would really have liked to see this boat and apparently it was nearby. She looks beautiful, and is that an inward leaning FB I see? Eric...you must be swooning.
