    Thanks a bunch Madhatter! I am constantly amazed at the quality of the folks on this site. Hard to believe there are still people who will give so much of themselves to basic strangers.

    Cheers,
    Vince

    Hello Sonic! I would definitely be interested in learning more about her. Please, if you get a minute, PM me with some details and pictures....also a location. Not looking for perfect. Have a good bit of faith in the posters here on Sams. I'm sure she's presentable!

    Thanks,

    Hello Walt, ole' bean!

    Yes, this "Vince" is one and the same! How have you been? Well, I hope!

    So, that fast trawler was never the boat for me. It was something that the wife wanted to try....something we could pack a bunch of grandkids in. I couldn't wait until I could get back into a convertible. Plus, once you've owned a Hatteras, everything else pales in comparison. Just sold the boat, after having her on the market for a while. Had a good survey and "like new" stats on the engine survey. We turned 24 Kts on the pins after coming out of the lift scales at just under 60K lbs loaded!

    I believe I saw somewhere that you sold that nice 42. Real pride of ownership there! You were looking for something much bigger. How did that work out for you?

    Thanks for saying "hi"! I've thought about you often, after Covid made our business so difficult.

    Regards,
    Vince

    One thing surprising to me reading Daveís comments was that his buddy with the 45 series 2 would take spray on the bridge while he was bone dry in his 46. Iíve found that on all the 46s Iíve run that you only get wet when itís raining. Coming from my old 50 that throws spray clear over the tuna tower being dry on the bridge without a full enclosure is a real treat.

    In a thunderstorm off Egmont key with large waves going multiple directions I got a wave "blast" over the bridge. Front enclosure window was open because I chose to have visibility over comfort. Water smacked the back of my head as I turned. Got drenched. Wife got wet and I was no longer a superhero in the dogs eyes.

    But I think that can happen to any boat under the right (wrong) circumstances. It is generally a dry boat but can get spray on the bridge if adjustments are not made on windy choppy days.
