Great looking boat. I wouldn't consider it a trawler however, even in the incorrect sense that the term is used to describe a type of recreational boat. I would be inclined to call it a tug.

That's a tug, too, albeit a very gussied up one. They've even retained the vertical towing lights on the mast.

I guess it comes by the tug appellation honestly Marin. It turns out that St. Eval is a converted tug owned by Dennis Washington, owner (or at least was) of Seaspan Marine Corporation.

And, unlike the flag would suggest, its home berth is in Vancouver.

As long as the subject is cool tugs, here's one I took some photos of when it came into Friday Harbor to clear customs the other year.

St eval can be seen tied to Washington's North Vancouver dock at the Quay, foot of Lonsdale, when she is in town ( most of the time). For an old girl, she is in wonderful condition! a good look is here: St. Eval - IMO 5070127 - ShipSpotting.com - Ship Photos and Ship Tracker

Washington has other interests now, http://megayachtnews.com/2010/12/att...#axzz1u9N5ykVJ, so St Eval gets to stay home a lot.

Yeah, but my sails are mostly a hobby. This weekend the winds were so weak they had little benefit other than pretty scenery for others.

Perla took this photo of my sister on the Coot yesterday. The photo caught great lighting.

Boy I like how the exhaust is exposed. I may do that on my boat.

These conversions from real working tugs are interesting. They make good character vessels but, lousy cruising boats.
The high gear ratios, large propellers, deep draft and heavy weight make good tugs but inefficient yachts. For their LOA there is very little interior space.A lot of volume is devoted to machinery spaces and fuel capacity. Most of them will roll your teeth out at sea!

Great link.

The photo does not do the actual boat justice. She was quite remarkable on the water.

Many of the older tugs still are direct drive, no transmission. Have shut down the engine, switch the cam cog so the engine start up in the opposite direction. My diver thought the Eagle prop was huge, 38, until he dived on the GillSpray, 1930 something, 70 ft tug with a 6 ft prop moored next to us. To start the main engine, they first started a smaller air compressor engine, to turn the main engine over. If it did not start you have to what until the PSI built up again. The main engine turn very slow like 300 to 500 rpm, but move a lot of water. There are several old tugs, late 1800 and 1900 around the Puget Sound. The why they made 120 volt was to wire ten 12 volt batteries together.

A little history:

Foss tug was start by Thea Foss mid 1800, who started a renting row boats in Tacoma and Seattle when the large sailing ships come in the fleet would row out and two the big old sailing ship to the dock. Harbor Island was created from the rock ballast that was of loaded from California when the ship come up empty. The Thea Foss, a 120+ ft, steel 1930 was moored behind us on Lake Union is still the Foss executive yacht. oldtacomamarine.com/atlas/theafoss1.html</SPAN> - Cached Was direct drive until mid 1990 when she crashed through to many docks so they installed a transition.
