How is the ride on these BHM's. How much juice do you need under the hood for a possible 20-21kt cruise ?

The ride like a tank...feels 5ft bigger than they are...but tough to get them over 18kts. If it were mine, I would put a 450-500hp and be happy cruising at 17kts (maybe?)...

No question it was a great design for loading them up and chugging through anything at that speed.

350hp, cruise an honest 15kt @ 2000rpm, wot, 2800 19+. I think 500 would cruise at 20, but you'd pay for it, the boat is not meant to go to the races, but will carry a good load. mine is 24 yrs old

Regarding the flare, there's one w/ a flybridge where I dock. No curtains. The guy who owns her swears she is a pretty dry boat. Maybe cruises 17 knots w/ a 375hp John Deere.

Always liked the 36. Unfortunately they came out with it a year after we built the 31 otherwise we would have gotten the 36.
