Very nice.**I just acquired a 1986 Chung Hwa 46 (Avalon).* Looks like a similar hull. Is that an Ed Monk design?**** KJ

Martha (Ruthless), that is one damn fine boat. I'm envious - except when it comes to haul-out time, but...

Cool, what else might you know about it? or Fred Ayers?* I have the title showing every one who owned her and where she was built, but I'd love to know more.

I also have a new to me Nova 36 Sundeck (Fu Hwa). Having lots of fun learing about the systems, motors and trawlers in general. Have been a sailor and just recently came to the dark side

Third Reef,

Is that a very compact galley tucked under your lower Helm on the Starbord Side? *It looks like your dinette is to port there.

You are correct. There is a small galley down on starbord and the dinnette on port. The galley is fine except we need to use the dineete table for counter space when prepairing anything elaborate. Good use of space though. Other trawler owners come aboard and think she must be a 40, but she is just a 36. Search on Yacht world for Nova 36 sundeck and there will be a few that come up and have good pictures of the layout.
