Thanks Josh,

This looks familiar. I think I saw it posted as "sold" some time back. Wonder what is up with that and why she has not turned up on my searches. Have not had time today to run a search; been to busy working on getting my dinghy back on the boat after refirb.

I am sure I have seen this one before, and on BoatShed as well I believe.
I cannot recollect the time frame though.

Nice spec on this one. Reflected in price. Not sure I'd like teak deck they look in great shape. Listing says Portuguese deck rebuilt by Philbrooks recently. I'd have to put a mast on it. Looks odd without one.

I'm curious if you ever got around to looking at the BlueWater in Vancouver. I used to live just down the road from where it looks to be moored, spent a good part of my childhood sailing on the columbia. But I digress....

I think it's a great looking trawler and like the layout. Partial to the pilothouse vs. the flybridge myself.

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

Way_out,

No, after long and arduous soul searching, I decided that I just could not live with that very cramped cockpit. The model has a lot going for it and I love the RP and Portuguese Bridge, but just could not accept the cockpit - it's a deal breaker for me at any price. Just too spoiled with Satori's huge cockpit for a 34' boat.

Bluewater in Vancouver issues

I looked at the Bluewater in Vancouver about 3 weeks ago and it is definitely an interesting boat. The roof of the pilot house was apparently rebuilt several years ago but unfortunately the work was not done right. These boats have a goofy roof design to begin with, that is prone to leaking and rot. when whomever rebuilt the house roof unfortunately they just rebuilt it as designed! The biggest dealbreaker for me was the access door to the engine room. there is no way you could get in the engine room without possibly being eaten alive by the alternator at the front of the motor. I'd maybe go $50k for this boat then get to work.........

Thanks Soulshine,

Wish I had heard from you sooner. Like I said, could not get past the cockpit; did not get to the forward ER access.

There is some more history behind this boat and owner, but I will leave it at that.
Mama said if I did not have anything good to say to keep my trap shut! - good advice.
