Walt,

Well I see you got them. The croping helped quite a bit but I'm not sure about the halo. The picture on the right makes the Willy look much longer. I'll show you one that makes her look fat.

Eric:*

The halo is called a "vignette" and is used in photography to enhance & give a classic look to the picture. As far as I'm concerned your boat is a classic.

Here's a treatment that adds an antique look that I am partial to.

Hi Walt,

I see you've taken the vignette off your avitar and I like it much better. To me .. part of what makes your excellent avitar is your Halvorsen's wake. I love the way is flows around the boat. The antique look of Willy is definitely enhanced by the vignette. I like your cropping the subject up close too. Thank you Walt.

RE: Post a Photo of Your Boat

You're more than welcome Eric!

As you know, I've had my share of boats since 1995 but I've grown to love the smaller trawlers. They have most everything the big guys have but not the room. Sometimes I tell myself that I am on an Apollo mission and must tolerate the cramped quarters until my return.

Keep the pics coming Dan. I like the stowing of the dinghy. I'm going out to Edna Bay and Marble Island (outer coast) tomorrow on the skiff. Took all day prepping and loading the skiff. See ya.

Thanks dad,That's what Willy's going to be when she grows up. See that round port? Looks awful. If it were mine I'd at least paint a black square around it.

Peter, Walt,Look at these pics of Willy w her original round port in the door and the full window I replaced it with. I really like my rectangular window.

Eric:

I'd like to retract my last statement. I don't know why, but I thought you had a round port light on the side of Willy. It's obvious, by looking at your avatar, that you don't! Sorry about that. I agree, the round port light in the salon door is horrible! Your rectangular window is more in keeping with good design.

Eric---

I agree that the original port in your cabin door looks quite wussy and your rectangular window looks 100% better.* So good job with that one.

However I have to say that I do like the round port in the side of the larger Willard in the photos that Daddyo posted.* I think a rectangular window there would make the boat look too "busy."* It appears the round port is in the top half of a Dutch door or an opening panel of some sort.* But I quite like it.* It visually lengthens the boat and separates the "pilothouse" from the main part of the cabin,*where another square shape in that same place would, I think, start making the boat look a little clunky.

But then I've never had a problem mixing round windows with rectangular (or trapazoidal) ones * This is the original configuration of the Beaver.* The rectangular rear window that is on most Beavers today is a retrofit window*designed by and licensed from Kenmore Air Harbor.

Don't like it on the Beaver either. It's like designing a car w the front having nice soft rounded and curved shapes and lines while producing the car w an after end designed and shaped with very angular, hard and more or less straight lines and sharp angles. It would look awful. 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. But I'm glad you agree I did improve the appearance of Willy.

Eric,
I agree the round port looks out of place.
The mod you have done looks good.
I have also noticed that the Selene Trawlers have a round port that I have allways thought looked out of place.
like your style.

I think it all a question of symmetry. I agree with Eric's Willy, (no s******s now), the round window in the rear door looks odd, because it was to the left of two square ones and in a row, so logically all being square looks better balanced. Not to mention giving a better view. However, the one round port on each side but in the same place, looks ok, because it's symmetrical. Might not be everyone's cuppatea, but ok all the same. So Marin and I agree on that one, I think.
PS - I was trying to write the word s - n - i - g - g - e - r - s, not use a racially offensive term....that language police thing is really sensitive, eh?
