    You're a searay bigot a quite full of yourself.

    Fact remains, tunnel hulks are for shallow draft capability. You won't find them on Hatteras, Bertrams etc.
    I believe I said I get the draft thing.

    You need help guy. Maybe less sugar or one size bigger panties.

    BTW: How is your quest for replacement shafts going?

    I don't want to get in the middle of someone else's fight, but here's a photo of a 2011 68 hatteras:


    and here's a 2011 54 hatteras:


    and i know they used them on some of the older hatteras boats as well. I can't say I've seen them on a bertram though.

    Looks like someone needs to 'educate me' some more.
    Still laughing about that.....

    Another happy 30 foot Weekender customer. Bought a new 1986 SR at our local in the water fall boat show. We owned that boat for about 10 years and really enjoyed it. Had not heard about the tunnel drive question. We just wanted to be rid of outdrives after two boats with them. The straight inboards were great and docking was much better than I/Os. The layout was perfect for our needs and our current boat is a bigger version of the 1986 Weekender. We really enjoy it as well.

Although the photos are not real clear, it looks like the 78 EC has a traditional hull. Do you have any idea when Sea Ray went to the tunnel pockets on the 300's and 340's?

    Hull tunnel vs prop pockets. Different designs for different purposes, especially on Hats. Your edumacation continues at no charge mate.

    Actually, both Bert and Hatt have built boats greater than 50' with prop pockets.
