I swear,some of you guys "can't see the forest cause of the trees".While the house may not be asthetically pleasing,the hull is a thing of beauty.She was originally launched with an open bridge and canvas enclosure.(not any better looking) If you look closer at the hull (if memory serves me correctly) shes
built down with a hard chine aft.(aka 37' Duffy?? Wesmac?? ) I also seem to remember her 6-71 was rated @ 250-300hp) one of 3 DD 6-71 I have come across where the oil
always remained "clear". Think of a popular 42' today with that amount of HP
@12-15 POB on board run her @ 1600rpm and run 13-14kts.That hull pushes effortlessly.Awesome seaboat. Why someone didn't take a mold off her years ago I'll never know.
