Great link, dimer!! Maybe we should start an anchor poll.

What names should be included besides CLAW/BRUCE and DANFORTH?

Can't stop laughing Larry.

Not surprising I had the edge as I'm now a member of the Rocky Hooker Club.

"Of all time", is a pretty long sampling period...

Dimmer a good very short historical account.
Yesterday I did a survey of two 30' floats 2/3rds of them covered. Most of the boats were 2 or 3' over slip length.

25 Claws and 50 Danforths.

Mark I'm only mildly fond of DeFever boats in general but I thoroughly enjoyed looking at all three pics of your DF 48. She looks thoroughly proper in every respect w very good lines and all proportions excellent. I usually don't like those side slab like posts but even they aren't objectionable. As a broker you've seen it all and your good taste shows.

Bravo Bob!

Keep that anchor crap in its own forum and not the General section. Believe it or not many of us are sick and tired of reading about the subject.

I found a better picture of Wily.

This was taken by the PO of the boat that just happened to be a professional photographer. And he just happened to be underway in his new boat. This is how Willy looked when we bought her. Picture taken just north of Edmonds WA .. north of Seattle. All that teak on the cabin was just screwed on without even any sealer where the screws went through the cabin sides and into the plywood backing. Moving to Alaska necessitated removing all of it and filling all the screw holes w 3M Marine Filler. Has micro balloons in it. In the bottom pic Chris was in the process of filling all the screw holes. We still have most of the teak and there are only guesses as to who put the teak on. There is much more teak in other places on Willy than on other Willards. I suspect maybe the factory did it for a dazzling boat for the west coast boat shows. Probably will never know.

Nice shot Marin. How'ed you get the pic. Turn Point I assume. The photographer must have been on a ferry or other big vessel. Nice composition w the point too. A bit fuzzy though. Looks like you're above your normal cruising speed but if the engines were sweet at that speed I could do that every day. Who's that on the bow?
