Twin staggered diesels to ASD drives.

It seems there should be no problem building the boat to a 7000 lbs. weight budget due to the reduced top end, and all the stuff left out.

Basically get rid of everything below deck. Smooth finish the interior surface of the laminate under deck. Awlgrip it. Then just a nice comfy berth, an enclosed head with shower. No carpet, useless "galley", headliner, sofas, ...

Two bolsters and a bench in the cockpit, with some open space between. No carpet, no padding, just smooth fiberglass and non-skid floors.

Smooth finished and awlgrip engine room. Two staggered engines, no generator.

Simple, fast (as fast as 100 miles offshore in the Pacific ocean allows), economical enough to use, reliable enough to use all the time.

Hope it's not too tacky guys... but I'd pick my boat as a tribute.

47CS with Arneson ASD8 Surface drives (16" offset)

Power?? No power as of yet... but I always wanted a set of T-53's in here... or maybe some 1350's. Either way, would be a great set up.

I've spent a lot of coin on this thing rebuilding it correctly. At this point, the interior is almost complete... I will post pictures next week once I get everything installed.

Also, I have posted it up on ebay for sale... this is one of those deals where if the right buyer comes along... it's sold. Otherwise, I will continue my beloved project and have it ready for next season. Link to ebay is below...
