    Default What a boat supposed to look like at cruise speed !!

    New 46' Wesmac at sea trial, a fine runnin' hull i'd say !! I think its powered by a C18 cat 850 ponies . I'm guessing right around 800 grand will get you one.

    Looks great, but for 800k I may do a little shopping around first.

    Yea, I know this is Steve's style of boat, but I think I would get a 58' Viking used and have a couple hundred grand left over for the first year's fuel bill.

    What charter owns this boat and at what location? How long did it take to build this unit?

    You wouldn't be as comfortable on a sh**ty day in that viking as you would on the wesmac !!
