We'll start of with the boat running at about 6 knots. We say that this boat is depowerable. Meaning that you can start off with a larger motor, as this owner has chosen to do, and go to a smaller motor if economics suggests it. This boat will run just as well slow as it does fast. In fact, it was modeled to move nicely at 8-10 knots.

Here it is, making a natural drift at about 8 knots.

And upping the speed to about 10 knots.

From the stern quarter at about 10 knots.

And at 12 knots . . .
What I'm trying to show you is that our boats simply don't have a "bad speed." This is due very simply to the fact that we employ some well-known but little used principles of hull design.

She'll also get up and go, enjoying a cruising speed of about 20 knots, which is what she's doing in this photo. Remember, this is a 22' boat powered by a 75 HP 4-stroke outboard. That's moving right along.

From the side at about that same 20 knots. Her forebody comes out of the water at this speed. That's a good thing. It reduces wetted surface, which is what planing is all about, and it enables her to meet rough water with aplomb.

Same thing from the other side. There are those mountains in the background again. There's a lot of nice cruising in the Pacific Northwest. These photos were shot in the little bay right out in front of Everett.
