Brian Smith, Newport Beach, CA, asks:

It sounds like the water line probably had to be raised a bunch to accommodate the huge amount of spares aboard. In the unlikely event of hitting something do you have a spare prop and prop shaft?

Although we have tremendous amount of stores aboard, we did not raise the waterline. Unlike other coastal designs this Nordhavn was designed as a full displacement boat. Keep in mind, she was designed to carry all that one would need to do extended cruising. Another design plus is the ballasted full keel. With this type of underbody, the rudder, shaft and prop
are all protected.
