Re: 17' Shamrock CC
The weight of the Shamrocks and their mid ship engines make them very stable in general. I believe this boat has a small diesel and it is a "direct drive" , aka "true inboard" (as ours is). Some folks are hesitant because they aren't familiar with inboard but they have a lot of advantages, especially if you are at all mechanically inclined. If I was looking for another boat I would be looking at this one tomorrow.
