I didnt think bilgeliner ever did anything worthy of copying.
Actually most of Bayliners hull designs were copied from other builders and some of the hull forms were decent. It was the layup and the execution of the build that was lacking in most cases. Of course this has been done over and over I the boat industry. For instance, If you ever look at a older fishing syle Beachcraft hull and wonder why it looks familiar. It is because the Wright brothers splashed and widened it to become the hull we now know as Seasport.
A single inboard downeaster... Your cruise will probably be lower than that considering they are displacement hulls.Think about a east coast lobster style boat.. 40/15 with a single 1k Cat..20-25kt cruise and will punch through 10' seas like its no big deal!
just keep working at it boys and help me find my next boat! need a 25- 30 kt cruise loaded...
Damn guys you are like a bunch of "school girls" ...if you must know its actually an old Bayliner mold that has been modified by a boat builder north of Mt Vernon to make a bad ass offshore 6 pack tuna killing machine for me.... it is supposed to be a 30 kt cruise boat at 2.5 mpg with top speed of 45 kts, steep entry and wide beam will allow for running 30 kts in almost any kind of 10 ft combined seas with a southerly wind and carrying a payload of 8 persons in air ride seats each equipped with a 10 " lcd tv and personal 6 pack cooler..while carrying 125 tuna in a refer system and a 250 gallon bait tank...plus living quarters for the chef.
You already have a boat that will do that 25-30kt cruise loaded for 6 pack tuna right? So what else does the boat need to do that your current boat doesn't? I think that would help us dreamers look for you.
