The beam is 10'10" with 3'6" draft. 2" shaft 440 hp qsb with 2 to 1 gear. We are starting with a 23"x24" propeller. I will post recent pics tomorrow as these are from a year ago. Should be launching in April. The boat just went up to Maine to be awl gripped, electrical, and all the finishing as I have run out of steam.

I like the hull design on the Pettegrow 30' because they incorporated a hard chine into the boat similar to a WESMAC. It is also can swing a large wheel and has nice tumble home in the stern. There is one local extended 3' that has really nice proportions with the molded deck unit. It does still need a small engine box in the 33' with the engine that boat had a 300hp John Deere.

Tommy, A.W.Pettegrow in Maine awlgripped the boat. I haven't seen it in person yet but looks like a good job in the pictures. By the way this is the John that fished with you on your old boat, friend of Rob's. Hope to see you out there this season, backing down of course.

John,

Will the boat have an engine box or is there a "step up" ???

Tommy, things are going o.k. My dad still has his boat and keeps it in Fairhaven. Last time I saw you was in Boston about a year ago. You actually mentioned this forum to me then. Hope all is going well.
