Re: 28' Crozier / Hunt - New build

Sea trials! Complete boat with no gas or water weighed 7,980# - about 250# less than the NA's estimate. :clap: It was a cold and windy day in Port Townsend last Friday - 40 degrees, 20+ kts. wind and 2' - 3' chop. Boat ran very well, on plane at 3500 rpm going 20 kts. This speed was very comfortable...

Re: Recent Chine Extrusion Experience

After reading all of this I'm glad I had Chaps do the bottom job on my boat
and that the hull was built with 5086-H116.

Re: 28' Crozier / Hunt - New build

Power is on, astute eyes will note that it is a used 350 - I am one of many waiting on my new Yamaha but that
is another story - I have power for the coming season which is all that matters. :beer:

Sea trial and in the water photo's soon.

Re: 28' Crozier / Hunt - New build

My 350' motor yacht...... :rotfl:

We have a crane at out place in KTN, I can keep the trailer out of salt water and avoid the whole
boat ramp scene. Plus it's super convenient for 'quick haul" jobs.

Re: 28' Crozier / Hunt - New build

Concern over hot exhaust when walking along the port side deck, this way it goes
out the port side shell plating.

I will discuss with Chad about putting a heat shield on the wood - thanks for the heads up.
