Is the whole boat grounded, or is each electrical connection insulated from the hull?

What I mean is that it will be a beast to dock unless there is absolutely no wind. It does look like a nice boat though.
I have 3 good friends with 30-32' single engine boats. You do have to plan your route, and I highly advise a tight ratio power steering; but they are all completely manageable. Its not as bad as you would think; especially when the boat is set up with this in mind.

The only thing the rest of us have to compare it to is a twin engine boat when one engine is down. 1/2 the time you are on the engine W/O the power steering, and you are trying to handle a BIG boat on a single drive, AND trying to swing a pair of drives through the water in quick fashion. Couple that with that drive is only going to be 1/2 as effective since it's thrust is affected by the stalled drive/prop.

My race boat is a single, so I have some experience with this.

If you want to see tough docking. Try getting an 11' wide cat on a trailer with one engine, no power steering, and the drives don't turn much anyway. When both engines are running, you can park the thing in a phone booth, but with one gone. It just goes in circles.

When I started driving twin engine boats, I forgot how to drive singles anyway!
