Have a friend looking at a used Dixon 48 and a used Provincial 45. I know provincial is a famous Novi and I believe the Dixon is a D.E. Both have 850 hp Cats. The wheel house on each are roughly same and in same condition. Both engines have roughly same hours. Only difference is the hull shape. I'm new to east coast but he has been fishing tuna for years. He's been fishing out of an old 31 Duffy for10 years and now he's set on a "big tuna boat. He fishes Georges half the season and finally says his is too small. Told him about this forum but he's got his own circle he listens to. What kind of speed would he get out of these? Any thoughts would be appreciated so I can throw some new ideas to him.
