Can you say "Head sea SLAYER"?
Interesting lifting strakes.
The biggest issue with a entry that narrow and sharp is the loss of buoyancy in the bow, which tends to cause bow steer in a following sea hence the two sets of lifting strakes on the bow to help hold the bow up when running down sea. It is like having a big fixed rudder on the bow, so shifting weight aft in a following sea to help get the bow up will also help with the handling of the boat.
is it a 31 or a 35?
this was one of the best headsea boats i ever owned/ran. And extremely dry.
I also agree with blitzen. if the ass had some weight it slowed down the awl when running downsea. I dont know why the wheels in my head are turning again
I have a 35 JC for sale at the right price
^^^^^ shes a clean rig^^^^^
Mt fishing partner has been beating me up lately on selling you the lady lol
Looks pretty Nice JohnII,but your plate is darn full.
Yes but being single allows men like me to fill the plate with boats Although I have to admit the 24 Privateer is doing extremely well in Montauk
