HONEY HUSH. Put the tips of your thumb and forefinger on the ball atop the lever of the Mathers Clear Command electronic controls, which, unlike other electronic controls, have a backup system for redundant safety. With your pinky protruding, flex your wrist as though you were dunking a scone at a royal tea. Click! A moment later you're making six wake-free knots as twin 800-bhp Caterpillar 3406E diesel inboards turn five-bladed 32"-by-33" Nibral props. Shhh! What do you hear? Besides the lever clicking past neutral, and maybe the soft, white noise rush of air from the air conditioner, there's no other sound. The deckhouse, topsides, and stringer laminate are layed up with Airex foam core. The salon sole absorbs noise, thanks to lush carpeting, carpet padding, 2" of acoustic insulation, and the Nida-Core in its construction. Every pump and motor is isolation mounted and acoustical tiles are strategically placed inside the hull. Little noise escapes the 65's mechanical spaces and hull sounds are hushed. Plus, Pacific Mariner plumbs engine exhaust underwater and balances the 65's 2 1/2"-diameter propshafts to a tolerance of 1/4000". That's twice as precise as ABYC standards dictate. Combined with the 65's five-bladed wheels, this nearly eliminates vibration. Pop a guitar sonata in the CD player and you'll hear every trill.
