pretty much so, that is why the 65 is not as desirable as the 64 with prop pockets .

Those pockets also reduce drag and some say increase thrust a tad too….prolly reduce draft by what, 2 feet? 2.5?

It won't increase thrust, but it will make the thrust angle more efficient.

Well, that's sort of what I meant…but I didn't know if the prop position inside the tunnels created a nozzle effect and a compression multiplier of the thrust…..The props would have to be pretty far forward for that to happen I guess...

Yeah would depend on configuration a lot

It's a "forum thing". I've read every post in here and it seemed like a cool milestone. No harm intended.

It is a cool thing. Don't let the "no one is allowed to have any fun or talk about anything but the exact next step taken by NEMS" crowd wee wee in your cornflakes. NEMs has stated several times he likes the naming ballot and the off topic chatter even…..ignore the nattering nabobs of negatvitity.

I voted for Double Down, but thinking about it after reading the whole thread I'd try to pick something else that isn't related to sinking or re-floating. Maybe like Sittin' Pretty or something like that

Read the book BLINK by Malcom Gladwell….talks about the magic of the quick gut reaction, first instincts. Go with yours…..it was right….

Default gotta love this

sorry for the delayed update the nems crew and all parties including the owners are currently in a pissing match with lawyers. here's a little about what's going on i'd like your opinions. I started this build in the beginning of june and stayed till the middle of august with 3 men from fl and one local worker. as I left in august I was owed a little over 21k which was my mistake I made because I trusted the owners partner who ive built around 10 boats for in the last 3 years. long story short I think everyone here has seen my perseverance and dedication to the boat and her owners from day one. to clear the air for alarms, while I was in ft.lauderdale in a meeting with owners I provided quotes with items needed to make this trip work. which on that list were 8 bildge pumps and 6 high water alarms. I was not funded with a complete payment for materials as a matter of fact after the owner knew he owed me a substantial amount he continued to ask me to put more funds out of my personal accounts. I told the owner while I was in jersey before she left that he had taped me out of funds and I had nothing more to help him he continued to be in a hurry to get her underway which he denies now. I have asked for high water alarms again in SC and again when I arrived home in FL they are still not installed or purchased. after I went back to myrtle beach relieved the original crew with myself a good friend of mine a licensed captain for them to get insurance. they still haven't insured the vessel because it hasn't been hauled for survey. I traveled up to myrtle beach pickled the engines, helped put all the barrels back in the cockpit, re installed the saddle tanks, flushed all lines and re mounted oil tanks, pickled the generator and got it running as well, completely degreased ,bleached and orpined the whole interior and then air dried her. after we got her ready to go we put provisions on board and got underway. we did nothing but our best for this gentleman and delivered his boat home safe and sound on our part. as of us returning I was told he would sign something stating he owed me what he owed me and he would pay in somewhat of a timely manner, which when we met he refused so obviously hes been planning this since ive been under way on wanderer. now because he tells me I made him make this decision by trying to have him sign an agreement he has chosen not to pay and tells me he will be trying to charge me with the same as the old crew. all I did was ask for a simple signature to state ive provided a service for you and would like to be paid sometime in the near future . as a bonus to all of it he had the audacity to tell me that I cant be paid now because he needs to finish the boat. so if I gave him three guys all summer and a floating boat in the end and he does this to me what do you think he'll do to all of the other companies needed to refit this vessel so watch out for him.
what are your opinions would love to hear them.

Wow nems... sorry to hear of this situation. I hope it works out for you in the end. It is amazing how things change when its time for the checks to be cut.
