Rumor, not confirmed

Heard a rumor that a long range boat is coming to the coast, either Galveston or Huston.
Anybody else heard of this?

Hey Ronnie,

How those cruise ships (and aircraft carriers for that matter) get up to speed is based on a simple equation:

(LWL^.5)*1.34 = max speed in knots

Max speed of any displacement hull increases with it's lenght at waterline, longer the boat the faster it can go.


What on earth would a 7-10 day trip in the GOM be doing? Heard any suggested float plans?

IF another boat does come, I hope it's laid out like the SD boats. They have 1/2 the upper deck of the Big E which gives you more casting space at the stern. They have plenty of casting space at the bow, and none (that I've seen) have a pulpit. Finally, maybe get bigger bait tanks.
