I tried to get some photos this afternoon but they were busy there,That of the Internal structure in the boat BTW you could drive a concrete truck over it.

The Power Vent is in a class of its own huge driveline parts Unbreakable and the cool thing is it self trims! Get this with no moving Parts.

Don has surely been around the block, he has developed and proven many ideas.
One of the most impressive boat rides I have ever experienced was aboard the 42'. She simply mowed down 3-5' seas like it was nothing.
More impressive, after my turn at the wheel I sat at the transom and could not smell even a hint of Diesel Fuel burning. The design buries the smoke and it resurfaces aft a 100 yds behind the boat.
Not to mention I saw the badest weedeater ever at his shop. It was powered by a mercury v-6 outboard
