    If I am going to go slow, this would be worth looking at

    very high degree of finish work. Go look at some and you'll see. I bet they are at least 2-3 years out on build slots.

    I have looked at them, what makes them top of the "line"?

    couple here more affordable

    I wonder what their interpretation of "economical" is?
    it doesn't matter if a guy can afford that rig. Wesmac is the top of
    f the line when it comes to DE boats.

    I have a lot to learn about these and appreciate your replies, I generally am more aware of the smaller Volvo's that are attached to outdrives and seems like they are in the 3K range.
    The right size is still in question, we hope to spend some time on this boat and explore SE, hopefully have friends/family join us at times, whether they will or can remains to be seen. I have a pretty good idea in my mind of what we want. The other option is a fast trawler, when looking at ads for DE boast I frequently see FT listed as DE, although they may both be semi-displacement the hulls are different IMHO.

    The volvo in the Duffy isn't a high RPM motor, wot is aprox 2600. I've had both, unless your going fast it doesn't seem to make much difference to me.
    my 29 H&H was skeg built, John Deere 6068,300hp, cruised 16 @8gal/hr

    the 31 BHM i have now is built down, volvo 60B 230hp, cruises 12 and haven't had it long enough to figure GPH but it ain't much.

    The Duffy is a nice boat, looks well put together, almost a bit too fancy, my admiral would like the forward port seat but not the small portholes in the galley. High RPM Volvo.
    Thoughts on build down VS Skeg hull?

What size you looking for ? I couldn't imagine what it would cost to get that here. There are a few on the west coast that come up for sale.
    Will do when things slow down, we are looking ahead a year or two and have been struggling with trawlers, fast trawlers and semi displacement. If going long distance I am ok w/8 knots, or at least I think I am, however having the ability to cruise at 15knots would be great at times. Size is likely mid-40s, I dont need a huge cockpit, prefer pilot house, do not need a fly bridge, only need one head. Need a reasonable sized engine room for regular sized humans..... and that is really a priority.

    Thanks, I have a plan for getting it back and that may or may not make sense in the end.
