Not really critical but saying let's take it further. Take a better look at it for those not acquainted w cold molded boats. It worked too.

I meant to send you a PM too but forgot.

It's all good, and good idea starting another thread! I'm a fan of Carolina cold molded sportfishers my self.

Greetings,

As the topic was "Fantail" it was thought that an example of a commercial boat sporting same would be timely in terms of seeing a boat in action. Enjoy- Al

This is the perfect hull for the day we live in. The more things change the more it remains the same. We have made the circle. Trouble is the wood and I assume the fact it is set up for commercial. This hull, with modern engine, set up for pleasure-live aboard small cockpit large cabin and huge bridge is a fuel sippin, respectable speed, most any seas boat...Perfect...

17 new custom windows by Bomon, Flagship Marine heating/A/C. Three new battery banks, Entirely new DC and AC systems, Granite counter tops, Side power bow thruster, rebuilt all interior decks with many hinged panels for instant systems and engine access, 12X13 bimini over the cockpit, took 8' off the mast so I could do the Erie Canal (just got back), rigged the boom to swing a hammpck out over the water, built a proper (ABYC) propane locker, new refrigeration, all new LED lights inside and out.

I'm making progress

Aha, a TF member that actually bought a trawler. A rare happening indeed. Anchor type?

Boatpoker, as my late old friend, Ben Harker (his folks were Harkers Island N.c people)., would say, "Now, that is a proper boat". Indeed it is. Great work.
