    No idea. I know a local boy who has a template for the side of the house though to lay everything out.

    Because the Duffy line was built up to a higher-priced clientele so they pushed that line. Why build commercial BHM boats if you could build pleasure craft Duffys for 3 times the money in the same time frame?

    2800. I get a kick out of guys that bad mouth Volvos. One guy told me he'd never buy another Volvo. "Can't get parts for her!" Same motor 30 plus years old , still going strong. I told him, lucky you don't own a Model A Ford, can't get parts for them either.:D

    I know this is an old thread but just wanted to throw in my two cents. I'm on my second BHM31, had a 1983 lobster hull and repowered with a Volvo60 and I now have a 1988 finished by Flye Point DOC#102970, originally the "Heisenburg", has a 210hp 6BTA wondering what hull # that would be? The 1988 is now F/V Halftime out of Shinnecock, Long Island Charter Dive Boat/Tuna

    210hp is quite a good number.

    Your documentation number didn't work for me, you forgot a 6 in there

    Your hull is number 218

    I would like see the 31 BHM built again. Easy decision to buy that boat.
