Yes mine's a Portofino 34, rarer than the Portofino 32 and much larger inside, actually it's the same hull as the San Remo 35 but is more open plan down below, lacking a seperate fwd cabin. Got a pair of the AD41s, C6 stainless props and she does just over 32 knots, a bit slow but fast enough to get anywhrer in reasonable time.
Tried some "nanotechnology" antifoul this year called Pureseal, meant to last five years as it's so slippery, two weeks in and there's a slime but it wipes straight off when underway. Bit sceptical so time will tell.

Nice boat Admiral.

Have you considered turning your throttles around so they angle forward rather than aft. Not sure about your Morse controls but it can be done with Kiekhaefer.

Might make throttling a bit more comfortable.

Once I get on the plane the throttles (an now the wheel with the new polished extension) are in the exact position i want them... just the damn things are so stiff , including the gear selectors, not sure whether they need greasing or the cables looked at... any ideas?

my mate now wants out so the tomahawk is up for sale
