Not having any idea what a Pilgim looked like, I went looking and found some for sale at Yachtworld.* OH MY!* What a classic style boat!* I can almost picture Humphrey Bogart at the wheel.

John, please post photos of yours.

John,
Sure like that Pilgrim. Looks like it's 100% trawler to me. I see on the left side of one of your pics a Shannon 38' SRD. Thats a very interesting boat. I've never seen one in the flesh.

RE: Any Pilgrim 40 Owners out there

I tried to find out what boat that was.** The yard workers did not know.* It has some kind of major problem with the running gear.* It has been out of the water six times this year.*

RE: Any Pilgrim 40 Owners out there

John,
SRD stands for "Shannon Reverse Deadrise". The aft section of the hull is a bit like a Hinckly sea sled. Like the "V" in the bottom is bass awkwards. The bottom of the hull goes down when heading tward the chines instead of up like a normal boat*** ...but only in the after end with the SRD. The fwd end is somewhere between a sailboat (Shannon is known for their excellent sailboats) and a lobsterboat. The idea or goal being that the SRD would have the sea kindly and soft riding characteristics of a sailboat/lobsterboat and be able to plane efficiently in the 15 to 18 knot range. I was ga ga over the design but I don't see them much*** ...actually I've never seen one but we frequently don't see the latest stuff up here in Alaska. I read in a PM article it did seem to be more efficient but when you'vec got a lot of lift aft and a pointy skinny bow one would think the bow would tend to burry itself. Sure liked the boat though.

I am here, but generally keep a low profile.

Salty Dog (Hull #5 *or #7) *I think are you familiar with *http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Pilgrim40/ ? hint, hint.

RE: Any Pilgrim 40 Owners out there

Dave I am familiar with it. It is however, not familiar with me. Twice I have jumped through the hoops to sign up, I have made a fairly long and detailed post regarding davits and have tried to return, only to be told I don't exist. I'm willing to try, if invited the third time, to sign up again.

Hull #5 - the 3rd built AFAIK.

I like the look of your mast and boom. Does it work as steadying sail and/or dingy lift? I really like the Gozzard designs that make use of things for multiple purposes.

RE: Any Pilgrim 40 Owners out there

Jim,

I see you got the Pilgrim group issue sorted out.* The third time must be a charm.

LIBERTY actually has an electric davit for the dingy, but if it fails you can easily use the mast and boom to launch the dingy.* There is a nice size winch mounted on the side of the mast and a*three part*topping lift rigged, all lines*being 3/8.

I will be making a new steadying sail soon, and see if I can squeak out a little more sail area than the current one.

Dave

RE: Any Pilgrim 40 Owners out there

Dave,

How does the steadying sail work regarding the roll? I talked with Ted and Mike Gozzard and they recommended saving the money on any roll control to use to enjoy the time in port instead of going out when Lake Michigan wants to be boss.

Cheaper and no effort is kind of appealing.

RE: Any Pilgrim 40 Owners out there

Jim,

The sail seems to dampen the roll a bit but*doesn't eliminate it.

I have given some thought to rolling chocks (bilge keels) and tried to get the lines drawings for the Pilgrim from Gozzard.* With that we could do some CFD (computational fluid dynamics) work and see what effect different designs would theoretically have.**It would be more of an academic exercise than anything else.* However,* Mike Gozzard hasn't seen the lines in quite a few years*but said that if he came across them he would send me a copy.

I haven't gotten the ambition to go out in the cold this winter to take the lines off using traditional methods.

A roll tank might be a good fit on the boat deck of a Pilgrim, but the cost to design one would be significant (and you need the non-existant lines drawings to begin).

We seem to have the "its a boat, and boats roll (and pitch)" attitude.

Roll, Roll you son of a b___h
The more you roll, the less you pitch
Pitch, Pitch god dam_ your soul
The more you pich the less you roll

Usually spoken when pushing a pinched-in-ends IOR vintage sailboat hard downwind, as you rolled both rails under.

Now that I think more about those days, trawlers in general hardly roll at all.

Dave

What waters do you regularly boat?

Lake Michigan for me. Lots of nice water, but if it starts to reach 4 ft. waves the chance of 14 ft. waves becomes real. It's the frequency and confused sea state that is the challenge. It is not unusual to be engaged with 3 waves at the same time. That makes things move. I have found up to 5 ft. following seas to be great for travel. Not so good from other directions.

One day (in 11 years) we had about 8 ft. well spaced glassy waves as remnants of a storm. The boat was kind of fun in that. Dealing with one wave/swell at a time was nice. Only lasted about an hour though.
