Mr. tmiller
Off the topic, but I see you are live aboard? Lot's of windows. . .yes! No insulation in the ceilings and you live in Oregon and it's winter!!

What are you doing for heat??

Best way to find out what a trawler is...don't confuse yourself with asking people on Trawler Forum...way too many egos and narrow minded opinions...

Probably do better on any other forum where about 90% would get an almost perfect score if you showed them pics of lot's of examples....

Or, you could start your own website called "Motor Yacht Forum", featuring your own boat on the home page headliner. If nobody joins, you've probably got a trawler.

Larry that's great.

Wer'e never going to define a trawler .. never have .. never will.

I'm all for discussing heat though. I have plastic windows and thus better insulation.

Is the OP satisfied about the meaning of trawler?

Right On . . . it's just like what's a "tug"? Is a Nordic tug, American tug, or Ranger tug really tugs. In it's strictest sense, of course not. They're pleasure boats that share a few style similarity's with a class of work boats called "Tugs."

Believe most would agree this is neither a trawler nor a tug.

Now I completely agree with that statement, it's not. It does however look like a heck of a lot of fun.

It`s like a hippopotamus. Hard to describe, but if you see one you`ll know what it is.

Did somebody really say "trawlers are cool?" I thought only young women in short skirts decided what was cool in this world. Cigarette boats are deemed cool. I think perhaps it's anything that blows their skirts up, and/or is expensive might be the definition. Slow and practical ain't cool.

In that case, helicopters on boats are really cool!

I rest my case! Why is it that when I saw that photo- a quote I'm often saying came to mind? "buy quality you only cry once".

Blake, I'm stealing that and promise to use it on a couple of close friends who desperately need it.

Were these Heavy Cruisers the original trawlers?

1947 Monk (By Shane) BridgeDeck Cruiser Power Boat For Sale - www.yachtworld.com

I doubt it. But what came before them?

Averilla and those like her are probably pre-war boats and were Cruisers. At the time I don't think they were called anything else. But of course I only know that they were called Cruisers in the 50s. I spent a lot of time around Lake Union in Seattle at that time. Some that looked more like a modern Passagemaker were called Heavy Cruisers.

A modern day Cruiser would be like a Carver or Bayliner. So perhaps nothing's changed except Heavy Cruisers are now Trawlers.

Eric, I wonder what the original engine was like. Betcha it was gasoline-fueled. It looks like it was fast.

Could be a Scripps V12. I think they were gasoline. There were GM/Grey Marine and flat head gas Grey Marine, Lathrop, Brennan, Buick, Bar conversions, Nordberg, Chris Craft, Kermath, Caterpillar, Chrysler, Flagship (Owens) and Universal.

I have a 1953 Motor Boating magazine and used it for part of the list above.
Most of these engines were gas flat head types. Chris Craft and Owens both had their own marine engines at that time. Have little idea where they got their base engines from. Could be Continental like the Kaiser car or Hudson for all I know. CC had a fairly extensive line of flat head engines from their small 4 cyl to the really big 160hp in-line 6cyl. Probably over 300 cu. in. They powered their 52' Chris Craft with 3 of the 160hp FH sixes and claimed 16 knot cruise for the boat and 25 knots top.

Almost all of these engines had their flywheel on the front of the engine so the engine could be mounted low in the boat for low shaft angles and CG. Some of the Lathrop engines had a cast iron oil pan that included the gear box. They were long and heavy and probably very smooth. Lathrop's were OHV. Flat heads had the very significant advantage of minimal height w the FH valves and the flywheel forward.

We used to have a boat just like that in Powell River, BC. He was a member of the T&T list server. Nice guy, who loved boats. Not sure what happened to him. You'd like him. He had a big ass anchor.

TMiller,

Welcome to the 79 42LRC club. I recieved my renewal notice a few weeks back from Ace American Insurance with a 20% increase for 2014. The reason being the vessel is now 35 years old.

I spoke with a fellow 42 owner who stated Marshall built 200 of the 42LRC's. The 3 digits following the JCM42 in the HID# represent the production number. Mine is number 150.

Dave.
