Carl must have had a brain fart with this one. Nice looking ride - but 141 PHRF? That's on the slow side for a 30 footer not designed to a rule. Not much in the way of an interior either IIRC. ...

I know the boat you are referring to. The one I was referring to was a Davidson IOR 40. May have been a 30.5 rater - IDK. I think it was originally a Seattle or WA state boat.

Sounds like something he might do. IIRC, the Viking 34 like Slick Silver had a Peterson style trapezoidal keel. Not sure if it was a refit or if the Viking 34 came that way.

Not really an anomaly, but this C&C 30 Mk1 has an extended keel so it draws 6'4" (more than a Dash) rather than the stock 5'.

Interesting to see how much (if any) of an improvement it makes. Would...

Not sure why they would mention the original inboard, who in their right mind would reinstall an OMC unit?

I didn't even notice the dodger, or at least that it was part of the boat.
