I suspected Eric was having some work done as he's been in the yard since driving down from Alaska. Looks as though he has really embraced the weather improvement Washington brought.

Thanks for the reveal Larry.

Don you must think I've no sense of humor at all.

One thing I love about it is the "W" logo thing on the front of the FB.

What's all that stuff on the foredeck? Looks like something my anchor drug up. Yup I'd have a hard time seeing where I was going but my floor space has gone WAY up ... and that ain't all bad.

Willard has 5 models of the 30' hull and none like this. Would love to put this on the WBO site. Please e-mail it and many thanks ... PM for addi.

Love it.

But you need to show this iteration of Willy up on her hydrofoils "at speed" as well, with her bulbous bow well clear of the water and anchors flying off in all directions. I'd definitely order a print of that.

Where will healhustler strike next?

Captured this image of a Willard in Suisun Bay near San Francisco. No Photoshop!

Don't often see trawlers with working sails. About a quarter mile from where the Willard was photographed by Al on Suisun Bay:

Eric, is that a Rocna anchor on your "new" boat? :-)

When will you splash from Latitude?

In a Starbucks in Anacortes ther'e is a painting on the wall that has a Willard 36 in it. Next weekend perhaps a few of us could meet there for coffee. I haven't seen it but there was talk about it on the Willard site. I'll be the first to promise to show up. Never hear the end of it if I didn't Hmmmmmn. There is probably more than one SB in Anacortes so I'll find out in a few days which SB has the picture.

Larry, great job! I am going to have to say that is a jaunty looking boat. The lines really work, or is it the Rocna? I just don't know. I wonder.

Well I see I can quote myself. Haven't been over there yet. Sorry but I don't see any comments anyway. I'll try to find out this week. I couldn't remember where I posted this ... Took a-while to find.

Legacy built a 32 that is very similar to this photoshop rendering. The pic I am posting is of a wide body. They also made one that had side decks like the one in the picture. Great looking little boats....

Those legacy trawlers are really cute! And seaworthy looking to boot!

As they say in East Carolina, that boat is "eat up" with the cutseys.

Not terribly pretty but salty, roomy and probably seaworthy.

We saw one in Comox BC last summer.

Would be nice to know more about them.
