I think Kenmore Air did it for structural reasons (or similar) and just didn't have any sense of what shape looked good or worked well w the other shapes on the plane.
No, Kenmore's rectangular window that replaces the original porthole was not done for structural reasons.* In fact it introduced a huge structural problem because the Beaver has a monocoque fuselage.* They designed and developed the rectangular rear window to give passengers in the rear seat a better view.*

The original Beaver used the porthole because it's the only size of window that would fit within the fuselage's structure in that part of the plane.* Kenmore had to do some pretty fancy design work around their window to retain the fuselage strength.* There has since been an additional rectangular window added to many Beavers to put more light in the baggage compartment and rear of the cabin but I don't care for this multi-window look at all.* I do like Kenmore's original modification, and I like the porthole too in terms of aesthetics.

These are two of Kenmore's planes I've got a fair amount of time in.* 355 has the original Kenmore window replacement for de Havilland's porthole.* 81L has the added aft window behind Kenmore's original one.* I don't care for this look.

RE: Post a Photo of Your Boat

Craig,
Glad your'e here. It's about time these guys saw what a Willard should look like. Your boat is gorgeous and I love seeing pictures of her. Hope you got in some good cruising this summer*** ....we did NOT. Plan to make up for lost cruising next summer spending more time in north SE. So far this winter has been mild. Was almost 50 today ans I worked on the garage. Hope you get up here some day Craig.

Craig, under what circumstances do you typically*use the staysails?* "Jib" when wind off stern?* "Main" with wind off bow?* "Jib" and "main" when wind off beam?

ALOHA is a 2002 Willard 40 Pilothouse trawler, powered by a John Deere 4045TD.* She is the last Willard trawler built.* I am the original owner.* ALOHA has been berthed in La Paz, Baja California for the last 4 years.* Future plans include a transPacific passage.

Pictures were taken "in da islands" in the Sea of Cortez.

RE: Post a Photo of Your Boat

Patrick,
It's great that your'e here too. We now have a significant force here on TF. I've been hang'in out w these guys for several years. Started when all I did on the computer was WBO. To keep from getting too bored during the weeks long dead periods on WBO I came over here. There's much to learn here from current activity as well as the archives like WBO but there's much more here and a different perspective as well.
Some day I'd like to get down in Baja right about where you are. I have "The Baja Adventure Book" and some day I'm going to stop hibernating in winters and get on down there. We do know people that winter there*** ...Arrowsmith.

I did?
You could probably do fine w 65hp but 80*seems just about perfect**** ...at least that's what I'm saying now. Don't remember tha numbers though.

The Sea of Cortez is not for everyone.* I know one person who has his boat here now and much prefers the Pacific Northwest.* But I really like it here because you can cruise year round in mostly benign conditions.* Anchorages are generally about 20 to 35 ft. and the water is clear enough to see the crawlies and stingrays on the bottom.

I much prefer*"The Magnificent Peninsula" for a comprehensive view of Baja.* For water information, Jerry Cunningham's charts and guides are best.

Weather today is in the low 80's and lows tonight in the mid 60's.* Beautiful sunsets this time of year, like in my photo above which was taken on Thanksgiving evening.* Outstanding fishing here year round.

I would have no other engine in my boat.* The JD is both smooth and quiet.

At about 40K pounds at half load, my boat is overpowered with the 120hp turbo!* I could easily do with the 80hp naturally aspirated JD.* But I chose the turbo because it is more fuel efficient than the naturally aspirated version and the turbo pollutes less.* Those two considerations trumped all other factors.* I run at about 1600 rpm which is about 70% of WOT.* At that rpm I*average about 7.5 knots (no wind or current)*and burn 1.5 gallons per hour.* That gets me 5 nmpg.* I carry 700 gallons of fuel so I have a range of about 3500 miles (til empty) at around 7.5 knots.* These are realistic numbers verified by Peter Pisciotta on a 1200 mile cruise with me.

I highly recommend the John Deere marine engines.

Such wonderful looking trawlers! I really like the looks of Nomad Willy and Sea Horse II. Someday soon I hope to be an owner. I want to have a trawler for retirement cruising.

FF,* Interesting how you keep trying to put people in Bayliners and I keep pushing sailboats.

What would a shrink say about that?** JohnP
