    The series 2 hull bottom is different from the prior ones.

    The difference is???
    Flair, V shape, Chines, Strakes, Draft, shaft angle, final dead rise???

    more dead rise, steeper V shape in the bow. Also they moved the fuel tanks and the 6v92s more to the stern to improve the ride

    yes I am aware, the 44 layout was perfect and exactly what we are looking for.

    I would prefer DD 71s or 92s. But, if i found a a 42 1997 or newer without gelcoat issues, I would entertain Volvo power.

    Believe it or not, I love the sound of the of the water splashing against the hull, its therapeutic to me. Our boat now has the berth in the bow

    I have a 46 with 671 TIBs
    Over all, I am extremely happy with the boat

    Ours is a 46' series 2 hull with 6v92s and the biggest advantage I've noticed over the older hulls is down sea handling. The older hulls were a handful in a following sea. As to the engines, I'm partial to Detroits in a boat, due to the simplicity and ease of maintenance.( no electronics in the bilge) But I've owned and maintained Detroits all my adult life and am comfortable working on them when they need some attention. I much prefer the 71 over the 92, but if you maintain the coolant and keep the oil changed, they are great engines as long as they are not over propped. Don't let them overheat!

    Sound advice for most marine diesels. The older posts were a little under powered, also, to challenge a big following sea, though, the hull design did help, so I have read.

    Best thing I found for the flat bottoms in a following sea was a fast acting auto pilot.

    In a following sea of any size, everything is manual with me....including my throttles. If you have your sync activated you can actually cause a broach by the slave's slower response. Also, make sure your tabs are locked tight in the up position.

    Never try to operate with an AP in a following sea. AND as above, keep the sync's off.
    I've come in on some ugly inlets when I had to, constant running AP pump (the fastest) still looses it. Leaning on the throttles is the quickest way to steer. The water action on the rudders is lost and thrust really helps. Flat or V stern, it's in the throttles and timing.

    I didn’t say anything about running an inlet.

    Inlets are all manual control and the more HP you have, the better,

    O K, take my comment of inlet out, it's the same.

    I was pushing a stabilized Fleming in a following 4 foot sea a couple of years ago.
    Overnight delivery outside.
    My arms still hurt and the wimp 3208s barely had the thrust to tear a wet paper bag in that mess.
    The AP would have rolled the boat. The stabilizers went max to max. I tried to center them but that made the roll worse so I let them fly and try.
    Wheel and throttle all night long.

    I assumed nobody would navigate a running inlet on automatic anything. But coming back from the canyon in a following, its all manual for me also - now remember, we're assuming it is significant following - not 2- 3 rollers. Now add an opposing wind. You'd better be standing with your legs apart and no need to use the head.

    I remember one night bringing a Striker in Lake Worth from Xanadu, Ammonia was dispensed down the stb bridge side a few times.
    Flying fish were pinging the port side, off the swell tops.
    Ye ole Benmar A P sucked that night also.

    I just replaced my rudders with the HELP of Post. They have made a big difference in the following seas. Notice the cut out on the top of the rudder. New Rudders.jpg
