Show us what you've got! Everything from home builds to converted commercial boats. Brand new custom construction or showering money on an old boat. Pictures of course are always appreciated.

The late Art DeFever, Naval Architect, is the man who rightfully earned credit for creating the cruising yacht designs we commonly call trawlers today. Since 1939, Mr. DeFever has drawn boats that are sea kindly, comfortable and pleasing to the eye.
