I'd love to get some input on this hullform as I have not seen it before (Yes, I live a sheltered life). Vessel is a 25' plywood pilothouse fishing boat with a 60hp diesel that is installed deep into the keel thus allowing the engine to be entirely below decks in the open cockpit. Water & fuel is also carried in the fat "keel". With a dry weight of approx. 4500 lbs she apparently cruises at about 11 email@example.com gph. I'm curious to know if this hull would likely respond to perhaps 100hp to provide a 14-15 knot cruise? Thanks for your observations.
Exposed wood on the bottom of the keel is an oak skid plate (for beaching) which is attached over the glass/epoxy bottom. The fuzzy looking thing in the photo is a piece of carpet on the trailer support beam.
