The boat had been out of production since 1985, but Bill knew of a well-maintained late model. The 58 LRC, designed in response to the fuel shortages of that era, has a full-displacement hull form. Standard power is a pair of Detroit Diesel 4-71N engines, enough to push the boat to its hull speed of 10 knots. The boat Bill was considering had the optional Detroit 6-71N diesels and a bit of margin for keeping the speed up in head seas. After our chat, Bill made the boat his own, and he and his wife, Susan, set out on the cruise of a lifetime.
