    Nice, good and sturdy looking, but it should have a small rig :)

    I found the Viksund 27 Columbi on the net but it is in New York and I am on the west coast...I agree it is the only boat i liked better than the Allweather i bought.

    Regards

    Has it appeared any new kid (pocket cruiser) on the block in these last months, deserving to be brought here?

    Cheers.

    Hi all, very interesting thread. I've been intrigued by the seabright hull for a long time, and I'm just wondering: would this hull form make for a good fishing skiff, as in a shallow water boat for redfishing in south Texas? The efficiency of tunnel hulls with outboards is atrocious, and with gasoline in line to reach $4 a gallon this summer, I'm thinking a seabright hull with a small diesel inboard might just be the ticket. I ran across a website of a fella with a 20 foot seabright type boat with a (I believe) 20 hp Kubota that would do 20 kt. for 20 nmpg. Of course it was a trim hull, which no one seems to like any more. Beam is king, gotta stuff in all the latest widgets and whatnot. I know that even a modest diesel/ gearbox costs quite a bit more than an outboard, but going from 2 mpg to 20 is quite an improvement. I've seen that even Renn Tolman has incorperated the seabright concept into his latest skiff. ability to run in 6" of water is necessary, and according to the afore mentioned website, this is quite feasible. I'm just wondering if the increased cost would be well recieved in lieu of the much improved efficiency. I'm figuring a real world fuel economy improvement of 300% would make the initial expense worth while for the average use of 100 hours per year (and more is usual here with our extended boating season). I think even with a wider beam, a 300% increase is not out of the realm of possibility. I prefer the trimmer hull myself, but "creature comforts" are what sells today. Any thoughts?
