    Considering the purchase of a B & S 42. Mid 70's vintage. Being sold on behalf of an estste. Currently on hard and not commissioned. No info available concerning expected cruising speed and WOT.

    This vessel has twin Cat 3208 engines rated at 210 HP each. Engines are purported to be in excellent condition.

    Any back of envelope opinions as to cruise speed and speed at WOT I could expect?

    Moisture meter hull carefully. If it's cored, it probably soaked. It's a heavy boat, and with 210 Cats, you'll only cruise 10-12kts. WOT 15, if the boat isn't loaded.
