EAGLE-WD as built by Jose Reis

The boat is already at the sea, where it is reaching a top speed of 22 knots, but I intend to try another propeller, better matched to the boat, and expect this speed will increase. The engine chosen was a MWM turbo diesel, 110 HP with a “Z” drive, both made in Brazil. The boat is quite stable at sea, even when cutting through waves.

Finished Eagle, only missing upholstery.

Finished propeller & bronze rudder.

Transporting to the sea.

First sea launch.

Ready for the first run!
