  1. Typical Hatteras issues

    I have been a long time Grand Banks owner (50' woody for 14 years) and am looking for a 53' Hatteras to replace it with. It seems every boat type has it's own peculiar, recurring issues. What might they be for a 53' Hatteras? Thanks,Bob

  4. Effects of Running Diesel at Low RPM

    With all the talk of running your boat at hull speed to save gas I thought I would post a question to see what specific engine problems one potentially faces by not running at ‘cruising rpm’ for extended periods. I have a 43 DC with Cummins VT 903s (turbos).
