I think that is an expensive project for anyone located in Hawaii. I lived there once and nothing is cheap, even locally grown. I'm sure it's a huge displacement hull which is efficient with minimal...

Re: 50 ft Willard Navy utility boat

I know the grandson of Willard. Willard was his first name and my friend said Willard made boats in his yard as a kid. That's a solid hull and it will handle almost anything.

Good luck!

I wonder if he was dead in the water. Otherwise I am sure the skipper would have moved. My motto is always, The Big Boat Wins.
