I think he's just collecting photos to use to improve the looks of boats like yours and mine without pilothouses. Can't say I blame him.

Now you've done it, Al. Don't give Larry any ideas. Nothing good could become of it.

Now just a doggone minute here. I'm trying to show you the real thing and all I hear is Photoshop...Photoshop. My rediculous renditions don't do justice to the real thing, and remember that the real thing costs $$$$!

And talk about bucks, here's one that I'm absolutely fascinated with. The boat is docked at a Marina just up the canal from me. I don't recognize to brand, but maybe someone out there knows if this boat was actually made this way. Replacing all canvas and eisenglass is hard fiberglass and heavy windows. I must say that regardless of whether one likes the appearance of the boat or not, it is so well done that I can't tell, but I'd guess would be that it came without the enclosed fly-bridge and aft deck. It must be a nice live-aboard, but man ....that's a lot of weight where there wasn't any. Anybody know what kind of boat it is or how it may have started out. Looks like a trawlerized sport- fisher to me. Imagine the $$$.

That was my first guess-----a modified 48 convertible. However, they did a nice job of making it appear as a pure custom.

Well done! At first I thought her a custom build from that quality yard in Freeport Florida, but they didn't do aft cabins. A lot of top heaviness can be overcome in a seaway with horsepower, which a old Hatteras should have in abundance, not to mention the weight of all that iron in the engine room. Probably no worse than a tall tower would had been on a convertible.

I like it as well. A Legacy 32, they were built in Florida for a number of years.

I was on board this particular example at a Vancouver boat show and was impressed with the build quality and design. It does look better in real life.

A different model:

This isn't so bad. So I agree w Oliver except for the anchor bit.

It does have a big problem though - proportion. At sea you would see the wheelhouse before the boat. It's just too big for the boat. The eave is nicely done too .. except it too is overdone and too big for the wheelhouse. Notice the angle of the sheer break is the same as the FSW and I think it has a good effect on the overall design. And the dark mass above the rub rail and the gunn'l. It gives visual balance to the over sized wheelhouse. It helps anyway. It does look a bit odd I admit but I think it's well done and looks fine.

If your'e going to learn to think out of the box you've got to at least look or even glance beyond the box. The FSW don't do this boat any favors unless you like the probable fact that they are vogue and you're seeking that. The boat would look better w aft slanting windows w the top of the windows in the same place. That would make the pilothouse larger and help tremendously making the PH look more like part of the boat.

I wonder if owners of these critiqued boats on TF ever see the posts?

The man could be right about this one. Here's the Legacy 32 again with rearward raked windshield. I couldn't get it to look right until the proper anchor was installed, however.

Here's another mild example.
This photo is just wrong on so many levels!

THANK YOU LARRY.

I didn't want to ask directly.

Yes it helped but not as much as I had hoped. Still looks like a little kid wading around in the mud on the farm w his daddy's boots on. Now Larry if you still have time raise the fore cabin until 1/3 of the wheelhouse windows are level w the cabin top. That should turn it into a proper boat.

That thing on the bow looks like a huge 1947 Buick hood ornament.
