at this point, i'm just dreaming cus wifey says no way,
to touring the the intercoastal water ways of the US.
here's a pic of the diesel boat builder and his girl friend....
notice i said "girl friend".... gals will travel anywhere with you
prior to marriage.
his web site shares his complete 2 year build of his boat.
fun read, if you're a dreamer.
if you have plenty of money and don't feel like building your own boat.
80 to 100K will buy you a diesel version of this boat.....
about twice the weight of the Tolman.
if you're going with the heavier fiberglass boat you might want
a little more power.. maybe something like this...
good discussion regarding Gas Versus Diesel in small boats.
