Welcome to Seahorse Marine
Recent interview with trawler specialist Jeff Merrill:
Driving a diesel powered yacht around the world can not be considered "going green". However, George Buehler's sail assisted Diesel Ducks not only leave a small footprint on our planet, they leave a lot more "green" in your bank account. If you want, we could paint your new Duck green.

2) Extensive double bottoms;
3) Full recovery from capsize (if pilothouse integrity maintained);

12) Single large fuel fill with manifold for all fwd tanks;
13) Several independent bilge pump systems;
14) Steps, not a ladder, to the swim/dive/boarding platform which has safety rails and a swim boarding ladder;
