Also there’s something to be said for a pilothouse that put your line of sight about 12’ above sea level and 360 degree’s of viewing.

My wife and I were onboard Mango Mama not too long ago. The current owner has spared no expense on her. If I were in the market for a Manatee, I would buy her in a heartbeat.

Mike: In the spring, Robert & Dody dropped in a low hour Yanmar 140. It’s better than ever.

I’m sure it is. We were onboard at Longboat Key about 15 months ago.

I thought this post was about those round, blubbery, cuddly sea things that lived in the sloughs in Florida. Just another boat? Meh.

Listing quotes cruising speed as 9 knots. Is that right?
I passed ‘Manatee’ in the Tombigbee last December. I was at 8 knots and they were quite a bit slower. 7 knots-maybe.

This is my boat at 8.7 knots. You can’t see that it has a swim platform because it’s inder water, acting like a giant trim tab. Maybe on the perfect day with a perfect bottom, I might be able to touch 9 knots. Most comfortable cruise for us is 7.2-7.5 knots. She begins squating at 8.

The orange Manatee above on the Tombigbee is Ted & Sarah Pongracz aboard the most travelled Mana-Tee, currently on their 29th loop.

Yeah. I don’t often take pics of others boats but I took that pic cos I was fascinated by the dinghy rigid tow set up. You don’t see that everyday.

After looping 29 times I wonder if they might be getting dizzy? Just wondering. No offense intended.

That rigid dinghy hitch has its function also. Ted set up the dinghy to push the Manatee if anything should happen to the main. It has a huge set of bull bars on the bow (see photo) for pushing, and among it’s electronic equipment is an integrated auto-pilot.

My boat has a 34 waterline and is obnoxious above 6.5 knots.

I run at about 6.0 to 6.3 and get between 3.3 and 3.5 NMPG.

At 7.5, I throw a wake that rocks boats and marinas, and increases fuel consumption by 30 to 40 percent I am guessing.

Guess people run that fast as plenty of trawlers do toss a pretty good wake.

Speed and hull shape. Our Manatee cruises at 7.5 burning 1 1/4 GPH with the generator and a wake that is a big disappointment to jet skiers.

No. I misunderstood something someone wrote at the beginning of the thread.

Will do, Craig. That may be soon, cuz I still have business to do with Shipshop, Crows Nest and Will Johnson Welding.

My minor wake has been taken advantage by a kayaker. He thus stayed up with my 6.3-knot pace for quite a while five feet off my starboard side.

Yes, as also reported in the thread “Disturbing report from New Bern”.

I learned from the owners of KK Manatee hull #15 that disappeared during the recent hurricane “Florence” is now in a landfill. Swanee was found holed on the port side and laying upside down over a piling. The pilothouse was completely sheared off and never located. Insurance paid off 100% and the owners, after 14 years on the water, are giving up the cruising life. Swanee, RIP.
