    Hi Tuna

    More than a few of us followed your rebuild. It was well documented and vey inspirational. What hulls would you consider refinishing if starting from new and what engine would you install. I think u like the 42 Lowell's and Duffy's. How about the 38 ft Lowel vs the 38 NB?

    4 years later and I am still trying to finish my 18 ft Seacraft.

    Best rgds

    Very easy answer. 43 Lowell, 900hp D-12 Volvo. Dream boat would be a full walk around something like the tuna tangler but that takes building my own topsides and I don't think I have that in me.

    I like their build down hulls. The bow looks like it is really high when they are running. Why the Lowell over the Duffy

    Are they still making the 43? I thought the mold was sold
