SW Boatworks – F/V Seasmoke – July 2013


Seasmoke owner Nick Lunt said he had no complaints with his old boat – a Wayne Beal 36 – except he simply “wanted more room.  With the Calvin Beal 38 I gained deck space and was able to have a split wheelhouse without crowding things.”  Lunt reported an 18-knot cruise at 1800 rpm, which he said was “easy duty for this engine.”
