One more picture. I have always admired Ernest's designs. Very easy on the eyes, and a nice ride for sure.

Does anyone know the beam? I'm assuming 13' plus, but don't know for sure. It is a nice looking hull, keel is a little deep up front compared to a Calvin Beal design. I'm sure Stewart will get some photos and information online as soon as he can.

34 vs 38

Thought I'd post the 34 again. The Libby's have a "distinctive" forefoot.
The keel has a "beefy seam" starting at the bow.

A few months back on this forum or another forum I posted pics of the 34 Libby.

A reply came back, and I'm paraphrasing, "I wouldn't want to drive that hull in a following sea".

So my question is. Does the 34 and 38 hulls "dig in up front" in a following sea?

Both Libby's are too big for my needs....I'm just curious what forum members have experienced with these hulls??

Bill I have not been on one offshore just lobstering in Long Island sound, but I could see that as an issue if not weighted correctly.

I really like that 34 with the split wheelhouse
It's for sale. Nice clean boat. Has a John Deere.
16-17 knot cruise.

Boat's name is the "Katie Aram"
West Newbury, Ma.

Here's a few more pics!

btw, I watched this beauty steam out of the Merrimack River from a sandbar.

What a beautiful boat!

Richardh- That's the angle of picture I was looking for, thanks. I like the way they did the spray rail and lifting rails on Anticipation.

Here are two pics I found of a 38' Libby charter boat. These are all very nice looking boats.
