Sea horse

Walt,
I was on board a 2010 boat like yours at the Seattle Boat Show.

Man what a beautiful boat.

Now I have Halvorsen envy.

Yes, they are nice boats but a little too pricey in my book.
My whole reason for buying SeaHorse was that I wanted all the amenities and bells & whistles I could get in a 32' single engine trawler that still had some classic lines.

RE: Sea horse

Walt,
Do you use trim tabs? Your Halvo is riding very level considering the wake you're mak'in. 8 or 9 knots? Sure is level. Would be nice if you achieve that runn'in so level.

Eric:

I have trim tabs and they work, however, after buying the boat and trying everything out, I decided they were not needed. I haven't used them for quite some time & wouldn't swear that they are working as of this date.

This is the boat's attitude at a known 8.4 knots.

RE: Sea horse

Walt,* Beautiful profile- Like the extended awning over the rear deck. Is that a factory option?

No, the PO had that done. The angled braces used to run all the way to the bottom of the cockpit hand rail, making it very difficult to go forward on the side deck. Using the same hardware, I just shortened the angle brace and ran the fitting farther up that rail, thus making it much easier to duck your head a little and go foreward.

I don't think that the way you reconfigured it would carry much of a snow load.

Snow?* What's that?

I know it doesn't form much of a triangle but, in fact, it's pretty damn strong!
( I'm more concerned with Sea Gull loads than anything else.)

I think that''s a well-designed and user-friendly addition to your boat, Walt.* Am I correct in assuming that the overlap is such that rain water/spray coming off the hard cabin top continues to the rear or sides of the extension as opposed to dripping down between the hard top and the extension?

RE: Sea horse

Like Walt, I don't bother much with my trim tabs, although I do work them every weekend just to make sure they don't seize up.


I came up with a collapsible aft cockpit awning far less sleek than Walt's but it covers the whole cockpit (photo attached). PITA to stow and erect so we usually set it up - and leave it up - only for the hottest sunniest months here in Hong Kong. It detracts from the sweet lines of the boat (which Walt's doesn't).


Having grown up on a Halvo, I knew I would like this boat when I saw it in a magazine, but it wasn't until we went to the shipyard in south China and climbed around one that I really fell in love. (Don't tell my wife that!)

Correct!*
The forward end of the awning is an "extrusion & channel",
attached "at & under" the aft end of the cabin roof, so when the boat is**
compounded & waxed, (Once a year) All I have to do is unsnap the sides, unzip the aft* end and slide the extruded plastic insert out of the channel. (Easier said than done.)

Had I designed the awning, I probably would have done what Mark did, however,
the PO was a fisherman & kept the awning short so as to have room (height) for
setting the hook on big fish and, indeed, it does just that!
