    That Aero Head hull is my favorite. Too bad that the builder couldn't manage his money. Seems to be a common problem with boat builders.

    Didn't see source of cabin heat or price?

    http://www.gsiboat.com/cgi-bin/index.pl This site has several boats for sale. I did not see the Areo Head, but check under charters and sport boats. I saw the Areo boat a couple of weeks ago but just do not remember which site.

    That is a beautiful boat. I am a bit suprised that the fuel burn is as high as it is, and the top speed is not more for the motors. Is that because of the hull design, the weight or the boat or the motors? Maybe a combination of all three? It is not that much more money than a production boat, but what a difference.

    That is a thirsty boat for sure. I corresponded with the designer of the Aeroheads and he told me that they were very heavy for their size. He has new plans that will cut weight without losing any strength. We were looking at the 31x10.5 foot hull with twin outboards. He predicted close to 2mpg at cruise. The cut files are available for a price.

    The boat has a 19.5 degress dead rise at the transom which takes more power to get on plane and to cut thru the water. It will ride better in choppy water. The Mercury inline 6 outboards from all the test comparisons that I have seen where last in fuel economy. The boat with twin volvo D-4 diesels showed a listed weight of 11000 pounds. This boat should be around 10000 pounds.

    Fantastic looking boat for a good price. But with such high fuel burn numbers your range is limited for sure. Even at the lower crusie speeds using 20 gallon per hour only have a 8 hour range (165 gallon tank) with a slight reserve.
    With gas predicted to hit $5 a gallon this summer no wonder he is selling it.

    Is Aerohead still making boats? A 28-30 footer with a diesel could make a sweet Alaskan rig

    It must have been about 18 months ago. Jarek has some very progressive and cool designs.

    Don't be scared, pull the trigger. You can pay it off with the derby winnings you'll get every year.
