A friend of mine owns a Seahorse 52. He really wanted a Diesel
Duck, but settled for the Seahorse because used ducks don't come on the market very frequently and he got a good deal on a used Seahorse. He likes it, but still yearns for a Duck because he likes the security
of the steel hull
a Duck has.
There is a lot to maintain on one of these beasts. Twin engines are tempting, but squeezing two engines in that beam is VERY cramped. My friend's had a single engine
with gobs of fuel storage
and a fantastic engine
room that was easy to move around in.
I really liked it. Very easy to handle single-handed - especially if you install controls at the sides or a remote
of some kind.
