Perla's favorite photo of the Coot:



Lighting from the saloon has little effect on the pilothouse. Here, rope lights behind valances gently light the pilothouse.

Mark

You bet cha!

In addition, I believe that vicariously most of us greatly enjoy each others' TF boats. Know that I do!

It really is a great photo.

Getting back on topic - It almost looks like their is a ghost of a flybridge on your boat in that shot.

Art, I dream of having a Coot like Mark's, but I was wondering if Perla would prefer a flybridge.

Wifey B: When I read "Perla's favorite photo of the Coot," at first I thought it was going to be a photo of Mark.

Seriously, a beautiful photo. I just love the pride both of you take in your boat and the love you have for it. I see all the threads that are started with "What trawler should I buy" and the answer is always that we can't really tell you, you must find the one perfect for you. Not for your friend. Not for the forum. Not for the experts. For you. Following the pack is perhaps the safe move, but individuality is special. Every time I see the Coot, I think about how happy you are with it. I see you eating a fancy meal with friends on it. I see you moving slowly and Perla relaxing and smiling. I hate most beautiful, nicest, or ugly boat threads. The most beautiful boats are the ones that make you feel like Mark and Perla. I'd never want a Coot. I couldn't love one like the two of you do. But you'd definitely not like our boats. We cruised yesterday at 35 knots in 3-5' seas like wild crazy kids and had a blast, singing along with the music, three of us on the captains seat (yes, it's designed for three).

Boating is such an individual sport, not follow the pack. That's boating 101. Find what makes you happy. The Coot and it's owners are a perfect example. I started to put this smilie but I see that for me and for Mark and Perla I see it more like this.

Wifey B: We just sort of skipped across them. Speed actually helped. Every boat has it's comfort spots. Ours yesterday was between 25 and 35 knots.

Now some day we're going to get a fast boat.

Wifey B: You mean you weren't out playing around in the water yesterday? Things calmed down today. Currently 2-4' at 5 seconds.

Wifey B: Perhaps more than one boat. This one's my baby. Only decent accommodations for two, although three of us on it. Mostly day trips. Never cook aboard. Just fun.

Am I reading you correctly, you have both boats in the Abacos?

Wifey B: No, we have no boats in the Abacos now. We were in the Abacos, but went home, did some land stuff, and now just a very short trip south. Back home tomorrow. Abacos is old news now, but it sure was nice. Just local cruising until May 8.

And I am not talking drips that have been monitored....heck my engine loses about an ounce or two a day. Not what I am talking about....the sources are known and are not potential larger issues.
Where do engine alarms then fit in this comparison? I wouldn't rely on them solely, but for saving an engine, they might beat inspections. A popped oil hose will kill you long before your next inspection, no?

I say this because I'm not sure my alarms are all operational at both stations - note to self...
