I'm curious...what did the PO say had put those paw prints on the hull? Mutant giant squid?
The PO had Newfoundlands. The paw sizes were about right...

I must admit the last powerboat I had was a house boat (40 foot steel) and even with twin screws it was never fun to maneuver in the marina. I just waited till friends with express cruisers were going out. Saved on fuel as well!

In a breeze, even twin screws don't help with this floating condo.

That is a sweet boat! Just put some paw prints on it and it's done. I mean, c'mon, every hull needs a pair of giant paw prints.
