The dreaded "A"

Eric,
You asked about (unmentionable), this is the best
picture I have of it at present. Not a lot of options without
major bow changes. Ruin the classic looks.

That's a powerful looking "A" puller. Do you think it was original with the boat?
Thank you for not using the dreaded word.

I really like the look of that boat. Congratulations, with envy. The pilot house looks just like some real trawlers here, some converted, some not. Was it always a pleasure boat?
The winch for recovering the unmentionable, is it hydraulic or electric?
What is the shiny foredeck treated with?

Hi Parks,
I don't know if it's original or not.
It's bolted together .
I THINK it's newer but not much?

The drive is hydraulic.
The decks are done with Cetol.
She was built as a navy coastal patrol/combat vessel, then became a tugboat.
Converted to pleasure 45 - 50 years ago.
Major upgrades since then.

Ted, is that Okisollo?

If so, hidden in all my stuff is a photo I took of her in the 60s at Fisherman's Cove in West Vancouver when she still had her flying bridge. If I can find it I will send you a copy.

Yes she is Okisollo.
Thank you, We've only had her a week so most of the pictures aren't mine.
Need to check that, maybe mine are too big to post?

Ted--- I've found that photos reduced in size to 1200 pixels wide work well on the forum. There is a maximum limit to the total file size-- I think you can find it in the "advanced" window somewhere. But if you're resizing photos from camera original shots, which tend to be 3000 to 5000 pixels wide (or more if you put effects on them), try dropping the resolution to 1200 x whatever. They still look good and they post just fine.
