Is that boat deflecting spray or creating spray? :doh:

There's a question to ponder right there :lol:

Actually, it got me think. Maybe it would be "cool" to flair the bow just to create spray? You can certainly see that it is an eye catcher. :wink:

But again Larry that is on a 50-75' hatteras boat that is cutting through some moderate waves(6-10') if you look closely. The flair on that boat starts near the waterline and extends back as far as you see. Those boats are designed to meet the conditions off Cape Hatteras and get where they are going fast. Yep they throw a lot of water but it doesn't slow them down a whole lot. He's still riding pretty level for the conditions.

Tom, it belongs to an acquaintance of mine, and another old friend is the captain. I've fished on her so
I don't have to look too close. She's a custom Buddy Davis, called the Salem Wolf. Home port is Savannah :lol: And yeah, the seas are an easy 10' 8)

Larry, understand I'm not trying to say you're wrong here, but rather I'm just trying to understand. Hatteras makes several boats that look very similar to me. Then again I've never been on one of these monstrosities and can only drool from behind my keyboard :| Again, just trying to learn more here :wink:

Like this 60 footer Hatteras GT60:

It don't matter much to me really as I'll never own one of these 2500+ HP yachts. I'll be lucky if I ever get me a DE25 :lol:

EDIT: ".img" bracket does no good when you forget to post the actual link :lol:

That's what I figured, it was hard to tell the sea heigth from the picture. 8) She's a georgeous boat! 8) George a Hatteras Brand boat cannot even compare to a Buddy Davis custom built boat.

I wasn't saying they were the same thing, just that to me they appeared to be the same style of boat :wink: I knew they were mega HP, the one Hatteras I looked at on boattest.com had twin 1,400hp diesels and pushed that large boat to 41knts while burning about 200 gallons an hour or something like that. I don't remember the exact numbers, but it was enough to tell me if I had one given to me I couldn't afford to pull it out of the slip :lol:

Still, a boy can dream can't he :wink:

edit: fixing what fingers fumbled :lol:
