Here are some pictures of a Flowers' 33 hull just completed in their shop in Walpole Maine.

The 33 was built for tuna fishing (stick boat) and if I'm correct will be docked in Gloucester, MA

For those of you on this forum who are interested you can follow the build from start to finish.

Beautiful work, beautiful boat.

This 33 is powered by a Cummins QSC 8.3 liter 500 hp engine rated @ 2600 rpm.

Ken, Dave and the crew @ Flowers are top notch !!

That is a hell of a good looking boat! What a big exhaust, but she does have a huge engine!! Wish i had know you were gonna be up this way bill, i would have driven over and met up, would be nice to put faces to names on the board!

Big exhaust??? Yes 8" !!

I can barely spread my hand over the opening !!

Wow

Mike and Ken,

This is a georgous build and really appreciate sharing this project with us. I wish you the very best and hope you have a banner year both on the stand and also on the hook. Hope to see her up close once you get rigged and back in Gloucester.

That's one pretty boat. I followed the build thread and it was very enjoyable.

Something about that keel .. how she tapers to the stern or is it just me? A little bit different than what I'm use to seeing and I like the idea of the lift rails. :cool:

Appears to be quite similar to the Ernest Libby design from what I see. The lines and proportions are perfect! I am very impressed with the craftsmanship and the entire build. I hope she is real sneaky, and I love the black hull!

It's all about clean water flow into the prop which in turn equals propeller efficiency.

No I did not, Mike was down at the bottom of the steps wiring up a few things.
He had tools, heat gun, wires,crimp terminals etc. Didn't want to ask him to "move" to take pictures. ;)

Maybe next time

Thank you Mr. Mud! The shaft seals for both the rudder and prop shaft are R.A. Thomas boxes.
