How about a 47' Elco with twin Yanmar 315s with low hours? Not mine but @ 19k just dying for someone to restore her brightwork.

The idea of someone pulling the engines and letting her sit makes me crazy.

Exactly what I was thinking. Even better is the water depth for cruising those drafty PNW one-off trawlers creations.

I think Thunder Child's has a ways to go before its a more impressive avatar than Heal Hustlers.. HH is grabbing some serious air!

You know how those KK Manatees are known for crossing dangerous bars and surf conditions..

I kept wondering how they keep the water out of the engine intakes.

Seen from my marina the day after Canada Day. This CG was in Ottawa for the 150th. Pictures are not good but she was impressive to see. The most surprising was the generated waves, not high, maybe 1 to 2 feet max, but with very long period and very strong. Even behind the wave breaker all the boat were swinging crazy during 10 minutes.

Probably don't. But I'm sure there's some clever separator plumbing so when the air gets to the engines it's most likely just "humid". In normal running the volume of air circulating through the engine compartment brobably keeps things rather dry. Rinsing w fresh water is likely a regular event.

What impressed me about Thunder Child was its stability, especially when hit broadside by a breaking wave and how it slid sideways down the waves face until the bow swung around.

Greetings,
Mr. MM. Re: Post #4272 (just above). "...was its stability,..." I agree but how much can be attributed to design and how much to the captain's skill?

Lou Tribal,

Many years ago I was working the lower Fraser River when CCG took delivery of a new hover craft quite similar to the one in your pics. They put on quite a show. Depart from up river somewhere, probably Steveston with load of white shirts, fly down the river, jump the breakwater on the north side of the channel, do a fast loop over the mud flats, back over the breakwater, return up river for a fresh load of white shirts. Lather, rinse, repeat. All the while the tide was dropping. Eventually they jumped the breakwater and left the skirt on the river side. OOPS!

Don't get me wrong, I have nothing but respect for CCG. Amazingly skilled and dedicated professionals. But.... it was funny to watch.

Hi RT,

It looked to me like the captain purposefully but the boat into position so it would be hit sideways by the wave. Testing its limits, so to speak. Me-thinks once you start sliding sideways down the face of a breaking wave it's all about design and nothing about the captains skill until the captain senses an opportunity to regain control.

Nothing wrong, I wish I was here to see that lol
One thing I found a bit too much was to see them in the overcraft going full throttle just aside the fishermen little boat (you can see it on the picture). At first sight it was looking like they were just smashing them.

I missed that. Old eyes, small pic. If it's as close as the pic indicates that was irresponsible. Unless there was good reason to need to go that fast. But cameras are deceptive 2 being the dimensional things that they are.

I did that out in Dixon Entrance on a light boat that I designed. Ever since I held up the ability to slide sideways down the face of a breaking sea as an excellent element of seaworthyness. I didn't give any thought to this in preparing my design. It just happened.

Double chine sampan style hulls frequently have this ability.

No kidding. From the capsize test video, it has positive stability at any angle of roll.
