Did you ever see,

A sailboat with a Flying Bridge?
I spotted this one at Seabrook Marina in New Orleans yesterday. What next outriggers?

RE: Did you ever see,

hahaha! Yes...Eric will find this boat VERY appealing. Steve- he may even want you to stop and make an offer on the boat on his behalf!

Seriously- quite the interesting boat. Maybe the "mast" isn't really a mast but just a single outrigger? lol

Schucker made a few that looked very similar, although I don't believe that this is one of them.

Those motorsailors were made by the Lancer Co, now out of business, back in the 80's in several sizes. Dick Marsh

The shuckers were nice boats. The flybridge version was my least favorite but the pilothouse version was cool.

RE: Did you ever see,

Well Steve- if you saw the boat at Seabrook that means you are on your way and have crossed the Mississippi River. Did you guys spend a night at Seabrook? Any updates on the Industrial canal?

RE: Did you ever see,

Steve, Industrial Canal is still closed but on the East, lake side, of Seabrook Marina. We left Houma Monday morning, My alternator gave out between Houma and Boomtown Casino carried on using the genset periodically to top off the batts. As I entered Industrial lock my bowthruster spun the prop nut loose and the prop did not engage the shear pin so wouldn't turn, made getting squared away in the lock with my single interesting, but no big problem. As we were close to Seabrook I figured to go in and get both fixed. A quick haul and bow thruster was fixed seems that at the haul out 2 weeks ago some idiot (me) had not properly seated the prop on the shaft before tightening the nut, only just enough to work till we go to Incdustrial lock where I really needed it. Anyway Wed morning the alternator was replaced but if you check the forecast for Mississippi Sound it calls for 15-20-25 K every day till Sunday. so we rented a car and drove home (60 miles) leaving the boat at the marina.. We plan to sleep on the boat Sunday night and carry on the cruise Monday morning.

I think the main is loose footed--no boom, and the traveler is located way high between a split backstay.********* KJ*

RE: Did you ever see,

Steve,
The Industrial Lock is the LAST place I would want to have a failure. Talk about a busy- demanding lock! Thanks for the update. I don't have the link anymore to your blog. Can you post it or send it to me?

RE: Did you ever see,

My wife and I were looking are 50 ft Schucker. *It was in Anacortes, but that was 15 years ago and we have not seem her since or another one like her.


*
A sister of our 58 ft trawler was convert to a motor sailor, and last I hear it was down in Panama. They posted several pictures on PMM.* The 58 ft came with a forward mast so the footing and stay connections are still there.* I think they added twin ballast keels, like I been talking about as they where planning on going a ground down in that area?* Would not be to hard to install a forward mast, and increase the height of the mast on the salon roof. If we was going to cross an ocean adding sails would be an option.


*
With the increase in the price of fuel, motor sailor might make a come back.* Again on PMM there was a discussion about motor sailor and several older classic motor sailors where posted.* Motor sailors, seem to be more popular down under?* *****

That's how my Coot is to be rigged, but it doesn't have the massive sailboat's keel ... just enough to protect shaft, propeller, and rudder.

RE: Did you ever see,

Old Stone, no I didn't upsize the alternator just got a Bosch direct replacement. I might look at that in the future, and keep this one as a spare. Since we will be traveling, and the failure caugh me off guard I don't want to make that change without looking into what is available and recomended. Actually the one that failed seemed to do a very good job of keeping the batteries (2) 8Ds charged.
