any transducer than can be thru hull mounted with a fairing block can be glassed in without the fairing block. It still needs to be mounted in front of the steps to prevent turbulence from interrupting the ping but mounting in a tub doesn't do anything to help this.

IMO max out livewells, fuel, rod holders, insulated storage, stereo and get the best bottom machine and radar you can stand to pay for. The rest will not be used and add maintenance.

I Seatrialed all of them & the only one that we really loved was the seahunter 37 with triple yamaha F300's. It's also the only UNBREAKABLE one. Call my guy if you get the chance to seatrial. We have our boat being built now. Let me know & I'll have him call you! Good luck
wow another plantation troll....

Lmat at post 38

I really like Seahunters and I love the service Plantation has given my boat everytime we are in the keys, but christ is that post a batch of Koolaid no ones gonna drink. Those kinds of posts are detrimental to a company more than they aid. \

Back on track, the dive door is a must most definitely

Im a family man who also like enjoying social boating, so I would suggest the foldaway forward seating i think it is a great use of space with great benefit in its use.

+1 42 invincible, 42 yellowfin, 39 st contender, 40 sea hunter.... all amazing boats.... hydrasport is not in the same class....

But who cares if the OP already bought a 42 inv.....

Thought this was about a through hull, not about comparable boat companies.....

Unbreakable is a JOKE...Long runs at high speeds can break stuff that builders could never had imagined would break. Bang around in 3-4 in the 30 MPH range for 110 miles, boats that can pass that kind of test prove durability to me.


To the OP...congrats and have fun with the build. Pics will be needed. Anything you wanna ask shoot. There are a few guys on here (subprime, Knotup, Rod27) that have accumulated a lot of hours on the Inv.

thanks guys for the input and have implemented many of your suggestions. Went on test ride on Lil Marlena in montauk. What a ride! very impressive and would like to thank the guys for showing me the boat and taking me out. They spent a lot of time going through everthing with me. Thanks guys and cant wait to take you out on the one they are building me.
Also thanks for your suggestions.
P.S. I thought they were lying when they told me about the ride. But they proved it to me.

Out of all these boats the 42YF really is HUGE. The thing is a beast.

Is your new boat UNBREAKABLE because it can be dropped onto concrete from a crane? Is "your guy" Mike Carrigan?

Congrats on your order as well. Start a build thread for it, I'm sure everyone on here would love to see it.
His guy is not Mike Carrigan, however I am.
Matter of fact, I've been playing with a 36 Invincible all week and had a great time on the boat. Twin 300 Suzuki's, tower, upper station, I've enjoyed it.
For that matter, also a 42 Yellowfin, another great boat.
Why my name has come up on this thread is a wonder to me.
I dont do brand comparisons on the forum, never have, never will.
I will say that I bet I have more time in an Invincible this week than probobly anyone that's posted, and I had a fun week with the boat.
I turn it over to it's new owner this weekend.
It's alot of fun enjoying a good boat.
It's more fun exchanging the fiberglass for cash though.

Only because when someone talks about "their guy" at Company X, their guy is generally in the sales department. If I'm not mistaken, you're the sales guy at Seahunter, so that's why I asked.

To keep this on track, if you're not getting a tower on the 42', I would recommend getting a brace from the rear hardtop piping to the leaning post. Not only does it aid as far as structural strength, but mine has steps built in which make it much easier to get up onto the hardtop. I wasn't planning on using the steps a whole lot, but standing up there opens up a whole new view when fishing. Not to mention everyone likes to climb up there to jump/dive off when we're stopped for a swim.

This is the best picture I could find of mine.

Default Got some answers....

WOW, a 42 Invincible? Nice....you certainly know what is the best....make sure you dont get the deisgn that goes around the coaming of the entire boat...that is cheezy. Also, get that side dive door - its worth the extra $$. This is a pretty hot boat....you should get the hull in dark blue...not light blue...also the best part of this boat is that your wife will feel comfortable when you are going 65 mph....

thanks game over. I took your recommendations: design around coaming is cheezy, of course dive door, however its ordered in ice blue. Thanks for the suggestions. Should have it in about 3 months and will post pictures. Thanks again.
