Husker,

Great looking 30’, that model & vintage 30’ is one of my all time favorites. I love my 320 but it doesn’t have those all time classic lines. Any more details and photos to share?

Default Cowl Induction

Reworked the back of the hatch....the way the hatch is designed it tapers forward.....rear vents act like a cowl induction....I opened them way up and diamond plated it. They are only 330’s but opening them up gave me 2mph believe it or not......

I like the 320....post a few pics if you get a chance....

I believe the 2 mph. That’s the one weakness of these boats. There is not enough natural airflow into the bilge and starves the motors for air. Opening my hatch a few inches helps me get those last few mph.
