Have you seen this boat yet? If not, check it out in the video below. Very interesting design, from the raised deck salon to the beefiest companionway doors I've ever seen.
Hell, freakin' HUNTER did that over a dozen years ago with the HC 50, which in many respects, was a very cool boat...I wonder if he can see from the wheel?
I like the idea of putting the windlass and chain in the middle of the boat. Seems like a really good idea...
I suspect the answer is to provide better steerage when gusts cause high heel angles. Aventura has done well in ice - see the videos on Jimmy's website. I'll ask him his thoughts on rudder protection if I remember.There is no protection on those two rudders how can you use it safely in ice?
Moody made some very nice hydraulic lifting keel boats.Still if I had money to burn Would get a K&M with a lift keel.
