Great pic of your father RIP! Having done a lot of the work on the upgrades, I can verify this boat is not your normal bruno especially structural wise! Also holds plenty of fuel!

I will try and dig up some inside photo’s. Not sure about the cored hull question.

Yes, it is the old Christine Mary
I remember talking with the old owner at the beach one day...that boat slides along nicely. For some reason I remember him mentioning 800gals??? Plenty of range if that's the case. Boat looks great. Good luck with the sale

"Extended keel (by Cape Dory)"

Fishizzle, Could you explain how far back or down the extension goes, and purpose? (Im assuming to spin a larger wheel?)

GLWS she's a looker!

I am no expert but I was told it was to accommodate the lower sitting diesel engine vs. (the gas engine), as well you are able to swing a bigger wheel. Someone else may be able to give a better answer.

Bump!!
Fished this boat last two years, it is a tank and fishing machine! Very comfortable and economical. 15 gallons/hr at 15.5-16.5kts cruise. Holds 450 gallons of fuel, almost all of it usable. Perfect boat for Platts or the canyons.
