The 32 twin vee is pretty dry in some terribly nasty stuff, but it absolutely does not like a steep 4'+ headsea on the nose and will soak you in that. If you tack just a bit its fine.

The 33 WC is also relatively dry..but I have not been in 5' seas in her. Which Mono's do you feel would be dryer..

45mph in 5' gulf chop=VERY impressive. 5' seas look as tall as the ttop.

Might as well add the 42' YF to the list supposed to be one of the best riding V hulls out there.

Any/all of the above. I'm sure Billy and Bill would run with ya but you might be hard pressed getting the mono's in there on a 3-5' day. Did ya'll check out the tourney shotgun start with the 37' quad boat on the Freeman site recently? It's pretty impressive.

I put a few thousand miles on a 45' Don Smith At 28000 lbs it rode very well The new Compmillennia 39' is designed to out perform the Smith in most applications.Of course Burning 60% less fuel and cruising 50% faster

The hull mold was 45', but the deck plug I built to fit the mold was for a 41' outboard. The first boat out of the mold was called a Marathon 41. The 45' hull mold was dammed off to shorten it. It took three V8 outboards to settle the stern properly because of the 10' beam.

Lets see, 41' center console, vacuum bagged cored hull using vinyl ester resin with triple 300 hp outboards rigged by Davey Wilson Near thirty years ago.

I mean Seriously???????

if you want my opinion, for its miniscule value: maybe not dryer but as dry as they all seem pretty dry

39 seavee, at least the unstopped version, haven't run the stepped, though I've been on it, just an amazing hull,
Just straight dryer? Not nearly as fast, 37 topaz, also a great hull
Having run next to the 39 and 42 yf, both could probably keep pace and look super dry
have heard great stuff about the 39 contender but haven't had the pleasure, this stands in direct opposition to the 36 contender which comes with grundens to go over your hanson bibs

As to 5' seas vs 5' chop, we usually have ground swell under the chop in venice similar to what jassman sees once he's well outside the islands or mako sees once he runs over to venice.

I made a trip in that boat East from 22nd ave on the Miami River through the Port of Miami, then out Miami's Government Cut traveling down the beach to Port Everglades Fort. Lauderdale, then back down the inter-coastal to the Dania Cut Off Canal, then West to the boat yard a half mile from Fort lauderdale Airport. Dock to dock in 59 minutes.

I am not one to put the name of the boat or the FL. numbers on the hull side in big letters, that and the fishing poles should have been a clue that it was a photo given to me by a later owner. :-)

I can see the White at the end of the tunnel and the black under the Hatches. The aft plywood rigging hatches are replaced with the lighter composite ones shortly.

The pictures were not coming fast enough, so I dropped by to check things out in person... Those hatches are beautiful,light, and fit with incredible tolerances. The boat is MASSIVE . Headed down to watch the king national weigh ins afterwards which was an endless display of the latest trip v hulls . This boat dwarfs them all and will likely outrun most with 30% less power and probably half the fuel burn... Billy's 37 freeman with quads appeared to be the only similar sized rig in the field and really stood out amongst the rest
Thanks for the tour, Jim.
