Award Winning Interior:
Georgia Girl won the Cabinetry category and grand prize in the seventh annual Veneer Tech Craftsman's Challenge™, one of the most highly respected and well-known craftsmanship competitions in woodworking. Besting over 60 entries, the 81-foot Paul Mann features hand selected plain-sliced cherry veneer accented with figured cherry throughout the cabins and saloon, pronounced to be an "elegant yet lightweight solution in a marine project where weight is a significant consideration," by Bill Esler, associate publisher for Vance Publishing/Woodworking Network, and publisher of Wood and Wood Products and Custom Woodworking Business, one of three judges for the 2011 competition.
How Does Georgia Girl Run?
This boat rides smooth, goes fast and remains dry - hard characteristics to combine in a boat this size. "You can make it light and it'll ride hard," Mann says. "Or you can add weight to the boat and make it ride better. But then the boat might throw water unless your running surface is just right." The water leaves the 81's hull just about amidships, keeping everyone dry. "This one reminds me of a 65 on steroids," Mann says.
Engine Room Notes:
It's always a treat to stand up straight in an engine compartment. Georgia Girl's qualifies as extraordinary, with more-than-standing headroom in the engine compartment and work space all the way around each engine. Nothing is inaccessible. All systems, like pumps, watermakers, air conditioning, generators, etc., have redundant systems.
