Here is a pic I robbed from a local dealer's website. This looks like a sweet ride. It's hard to put a wheel house on these smaller DE's and have it look decent, but they have pulled it off with this one (imo). Jim Beal's shop in Milbridge, Me. builds these boats for the dealer. The dealer claims a 20 knot cruise with 115 hp, at 4gph fuel burn. What's not to like about that? :)

Very well proportioned, got a base price with that power??

Is there a keel on the bottom?

Good questions, for which I have no answers. The info on the dealer's site is pretty sparse for those of us who need details :confused:. I was hopeful someone on the site might be able to offer more details on this hull.

At the Portland Boat Show that rig w/ a Yamaha 115HP was around 52K. Not sure if the trailer was included in the price (I think not) We are having one built this Winter.

There is a little bit of Keel for stability, and I believe that to put a Honda 150BF on that boat you will be looking at Closer to 60,000. I think it is about 45,000 to have the boat finished, plus the cost of the outboard.

Sounds about right. Honda BF150 will set you back $16,500-$17,000 now-a-days. Plus another $1500.00-$1700.00 for hydraulic steering. Add a trailer & it's $65.000 all-in. Maybe even a tad more when you have all my electronics installed.

8'6" but it feels roomier once you're on the deck. If you like deck space (like my wife & I do) she is very wide. We purchased this boat "exactly" for this reason.

Thanks for the info guys, and good luck with your new ride magnolia. Looking forward to some pics when you bring her home. :cool:

BillD, I sold the boat about 3 months ago, I sold it to a close fellow lobsterman here in Jonesport. Yes you spoke with me through email, I dont believe we ever got to the pictures stage, just a few words of info.

Not a problem. I'll forward them over either Sunday or Monday. Just don't freak out if you see a bunch of attachments when I shoot it over. I am so wierd about opening anything that I don't know where it is coming from.
