    I think diesel electric hybrids will be the answer to that issue.

    Aotea:

    I have been told that the "old", or "Slippery", or "Beal's Island Model" Young Brothers 38 derives from a wooden Osmond Beal-designed and built Lobster boat.

    As for the engine location, provided no weight-distribution or drive shaft-angle disadvantages (engineering questions, those), and if using her for cruising and hook and line fishing, I would want the engine aft of the bulkhead far enough to be able to step 360 degrees around it. That would give you more fore-cabin "living" area and an engine box out in the deck-house.

    This assumes that the engine box is high enough to be useful for sitting on or using as a chart or picnic/utility table. When they are low-topped they are not so convenient, in my opinion, as they are too high to stand on (as you will have no head-room) and are too low to eat or work off of.

    I believe that for non-Lobstermen engine boxes can be very useful beyond their primary purpose, and that attempts to eliminate them altogether or reduce their height often beget a new set of inconveniences.

    Actually the name of this boat is Raven. The owner bought it from a lobsterman in Harpswell, and was then named Perfect Crime. The present owner repowered her with a Deere.

    yup, its RAVEN for sure. The name Doogie Doo Dance came from my girl friend Doll. in Dec of 201X we were down at the Thimbles and we spotted RAVEN up on the rails. Nice set up, the guy has a railway system right up into his yard. So anyway Doll steps into a pile of dog doo and starts dancing around to get it off her shoe, hence the Doogie Doo Dance 38 Slippery.
