I can see that the pilothouse enclosure - along with the stabilizers that were installed at the same time - added some value to the boat, but I think a few details of the pilothouse could have been handled better. The aft bulkhead of the pilothouse should have been visually slanted to match the house. It was also extended upwards by what looks like a commercial-style coaming that does several things visually that are not enhancing. And I'm not sure why the broker chose to close the curtains!

I was also a bit surprised to see trim tabs - was that a stock item?

Why were you surprised??? That boat is packing 750hp. I have a friend that has a GB42 with those same engines and it moves along smartly above 20 knots at WOT. He cruises it on plane regularly so the trim tabs definitely help.

Here's a Bayliner 4788 example of an enclosed flying-bridge, also in keeping with the style of the boat. This one is for sale in Alaska, but I also see that another almost identical 4788 is in Port Towsend. Is this a mod that was offered by Bayliner?

What in the world was this guy thinking???

At least he did not use those windshields that slope forward. No, aft. No, forward. No, aft......Auuuuuuuuuuuuuugh!

Maybe healhustler can "fix" it by photoshoping out sail rig (I would seriously like to see that).

I don't like these high CG things but agree w Baker that that Bayliner is very good looking and most of these high add-ons don't look good at all. The Bayliner hardly looks top heavy.

The boat in post 63 looks more like a Bertram. That broken shear was a Bertram thing.

LOL....Poker: In order to be a Manatee owner, you've got to allow for grimaces and giggles until they get inside, or especially, till they take a ride. We get just as many looks as you do in your Fantail....."sigh"....just not for the same reasons.

Note: In a recent survey involving at least two boaters, an improved taste in dress, grooming and beer selection was recorded when moving from ownership of brand-X boats to Krogen Manatees.

What I want is a boat that looks like mine and lives like yours

LOL. Yeah, that's exactly what I want too. Meanwhile, I keep trying to make mine look more like yours. Fruitless effort, I'm afraid. But wouldn't that be something if one could arrange such an optically pleasing vessel and have all the benefits of a bulbous live-aboard. It's possible, but not under 50 ft. or so.

Add on pilot houses seem very popular down under in Oz; of course the extra weight doesn't make a Cat roll like it would on a monohull.




Works better on large hulls.

Greetings,
Mr. mb. "Those two cat houses don't look like add-on's to me." Could it be that they were done well and aesthetically in keeping with the overall style of the vessel? Add-ons don't have to be ugly.
