Could be cored, depending on layup schedule and generally can't fit a large enough prop under it to get high speed.
Other than that good seaboat.
mine is cored also, weighs 10,800 according to the travel lift, is that a good thing? i don't know, sometimes i wish it was a little heavier. you are right, the boat will do 12 knts with no power, and runs dirt cheap.
So what power/trans/prop do you have installed and what speeds are you getting, have you lowered your skeg/shaft for more prop clearance?
Pugsley,Nice looking boat!......what's the aluminum poles at each corner of the house used for?
I have a solid glass 1980 35 Bruno with a CAT 3126 355 hp and get pretty much the same numbers as Pugsley...once with little fuel and no gear (very light) I saw 22 knots but best cruise is around 15 knots with normal load burning 10 gals/hr. This boat is set up as a cruiser and once we get all our gear on board it is seldom "light".
