The Maltese Falcon originally commissioned by venture capitalist, Tom Perkins. I captured this image near Tiburon, San Francisco Bay on October 8, 2008.

Usually what happens, is the owners/guests fly into Vancouver and then sail up to the Queen Charlotte Islands or Alaska. Once that vacation is over than the boat deadheads to it's next destination.
Ahh ... the good life

Wonderful!!!

Gotta be about the perfect boat.

Are your fwd windows double pane? Looks like 25 or 35 little bolts hold each window on from outside but look like a different sort of window from the inside in your pilot house pic looking to stbd.
You should put that 4th pic on the "two anchors on the bow" thread. Like those hand holds by the helm.
With the fish down it must be a very nice and smooth ride. You could come to the PNW through the Panama in that one. A long way though.
Did they weld long strips longitudinally together after putting a "cup" in the strips?
Thanks for shar'in that beautiful boat.

Thanks Eric. Most of those pics were taken in Annapolis when I went to look at the boat in 2008, before buying it. I've made a few changes, destroyer wheel and new helm chair which is from a Honda Odyssey minivan. Bought it new on ebay. Also changed the name after it arrived here.

If that is a fridge to the right of the wheel, it is indeed the perfect boat!

Steve: That's a chart table that folds down. Fridge is in the galley, one of those top loading types, keeps things real cold.

Very nice, Commanche. Your avatar picture doesn't do the boat justice.

Well I have serious keel envy Gulf Comanche...



Yours tracks. And alas, mine does not. One of these days, one of these days... Old School is a pretty gal. I like her.

I did not see a hole in her rudder. May I take it that her shaft or rudder is offset for removal?

From the looks of your crew compliment, I'd say you're already received your prize

Man Janice, don't put the bad juju on me, talking shaft removal involves many boat bucks I'm sure. Have not had to find out yet.

Nope, not even close to doing it justice. Nice!

Well, she's not a trawler, but she's mine, and she's almost paid for. All shined up for her big splash today! Winter is way too long. Click image for larger version

Nope. Not a bit Old School. Mine had to come back so I could install the PSS, which I have now replaced with a standard. My PSS started leaking badly -- fortunately while on the way across the river to the boatyard for a haul.

It had given me fits twice before. Initial install, the guy (can't say mechanic because, well) anyway, there are two set screws for each hole. Only one was put in initially so of course those things vibrate out. I found one in the bilge -- and just one.

Lots of water too.

Then I doubled the set screws (had spares on hand -- handy to have something so critical, and where I could find it!) so when I spotted a set screw in the bilge I went looking and found the one that was missing.

Shoving the silver ring back wasn't fun -- required testosterone. Sigh.

The theory is good and I did want a dry bilge. Our steel boat had a box under the stuffing box and the bilge herself was bone dry. This was in the days before all those coatings they sell now.

On the first of each month every deck came up and the bilge was vacuumed. Dust is a magnet for moisture. And of course phospheric acid too any place required.

No, I'm sure yours is/will be fine.
