Off shore she is going to be big, heavy, take waves very well, and point poorly. It's just a trade
off for the shallow draft
and very heavy construction.
How heavy is the construction? We accidentally ran into a concrete pier once with the dolphin striker. I don't have them anymore, but the concrete cracked the striker was fine except for a few scratches.
One thing I might suggest is to have a fuel
polisher installed. The massive fuel tanks
mean you will have pretty slow turn over of diesel
. Polishing regularly can help prevent bigger issues.
