Discussion in 'Downeast Boat Builders (25 Ft+)' started by Diesel Jerry, Mar 27, 2019.
Both have a 12 beam, but the draft is way different. Could be plausible.
Can't the 32 MC fit a 26" prop? The 30 CB can fit a 28", so I don't see how their draft could be all that different. Unless a mooring, slip, or some other factor requires staying at 30', I think the 32' MC is a better option, 2' is a lot of boat for the same costs to finish. 30 CB is definitely a great boat if that's the size you need.
MC32 can swing 28
I looked at a couple listings for 32 Mitchell Coves saying the draft was 6 foot. And the 30 CB is 3’ 10” . Now information might be wrong because that seems like to be too big of a difference.

Let me try this 35 mc 35'x13'x4'x12'2'' transom. 34 cb 34'x13'x4' x 12'4'' transom.Take a foot off the 35mc what do you have? 32mc 32'x12'2''x3'10''x11'4'' transom 30cb 30'x12'x3'10'' 11'2'' transom. Take 2' off the 32' mc what do you have? I was told by Cavin that he shortened the frames on the 32mc when building the new plug for the 30'cb and some tweeking. I am still not sure if he lowered the sheer a little.I'm with powderpro I would take the extra 2'
The 30 CB comes from a damn good reputable builder. The new shop that has the molds for the 32 MC hasn’t really made their mark on the Maine water front yet. I could spare the two feet knowing who is building my hull.
This is not to be critical of the new MC builder. I just haven’t seen their work yet.
Jerry is correct, Stewart Workman builds a great product, he runs a top notch shop in my opinion.
The 32 Mitchell Cove is #3 on my all time favorites list. It is a great hull. I have raced and sternmaned on one.
