Yeah, the 38 flat-deckmight be a bit on the heavy side by today's standards, but I see that as an edge in favor of the Post,,,,,,,,,,also, it might help to throw the icemaker, a/c, generator, lower steering station, apartment-size fridgideezer into the bay,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
Dave, I'll look for AAA Rim and let you know if I can help. I've got some old Suburban rims in the basement.

Caught some tunas at the Canyons, that boat was overpowered, felt like it would breech.

This is one sexy Post 42'
Got any ideas?

Probably not, but if you let Ritter near it, he'd be figuring out a way to shoe-horn a pair of oil-drippin' radial engines out of some WWII dinosaur aircraft in it...... the boy doesn't believe in kerosene burners......

Yeahn, now that's the ticket, but I'd be using Rolls-Royce Griffons (not the Merlins) instead of big round engines in this installation. And they'd fit for sure.
