I have a 49' 60,000 lbs. Grand Banks with twin Lehman 454CID 355 HP engines. I would be much happier with twin Cummins 210 HP. I am way over powered. Hatteras built their 58' LRC with 4-71 and 6-71 DD engines. For years the 4-71s were looked down on. Now with Fuel at $ 4.00 a gallon the hull value of the 4-71 powered vessel has come back up. 8.5 knots cruise with the ability to do 10 is perfect for my needs.
