Feeling a bit inadequate.

Does this dock make my boat look small?

Greetings,
Mr. dh. No, not at all. It's perspective. You know. Lines converge until they reach the horizon.

No. The 2nd boat from the left looks big. What's the LOA on that one?

I think you're doing just fine!

BTW, wonder if that first boat with the blue hull has a lower helm. If so, how could they see anything over the bow?!?!

It is big. I believe it is 101í. 1988 Monk design built in Vancouver, WA by Christensen. I havenít seem anyone on her, but I can see on the aft bulkhead of the salon about 40 flag symbols for each of the countries she has visited.

If you are interested in that blue hulled boat on the left, you are in luck. The Port of Olympia will be an auctioning it off later this month to recover past marina fees. No extra charge for the 2í of growth on the bottom. The boat has a fly bridge but all the controls are missing. It has a large, open fantail. My guess it that is/was a fishing boat conversion. Someone with bigger dreams than a wallet. Steel hull.

BTW, the boat right in front of me is a Grand Banks Aleutian 59. Apparently it is hull 34 of 35 that were made. I have to say that with the dark blue hull, it is an absolutely beautiful boat. Owned by a fellow TYC member who Iíve not met before.

Did your boat ask to be put in the rear??

If you'd been in front and da boat biggie in rear... yours woulda looked big too!

Of course, RT knew that!!

I find that the further north I travel the smaller my boat gets relative to the boats around me. Here in Seattle I am often the biggest boat on the dock, by the time I reach desolation I am one of the smaller boats on the dock.

Your boat looks small in the photo. So, you need to acquire a bigger boat, perhaps in the 60-foot range.

Feeling a bit inadequate.

After Eight appears to have been built by Northern Marine. Watch out for a roll over!

Edit: it gets worse. The owner appears to be a car dealer. Double watch out!

My boat's home is in an oversized berth, so most all neighboring boats are larger. Doesn't bother me since berthing is made easier.

People, People... all your boats are quite fine! Just remember - "It ain't the meat it's the motion that makes my baby want to rock."

Try owning a 51 year old 31 foot boat, with 51 year old engines, 51 year old oxidation, and 51 year old equipment, that you only own because you were lucky enough to trade a small $8000 bowrider for, which your dad gave you the money to buy in the first place. And then add in a used A/C cause you can't afford a new one, and mix in all the DIY you can because you can't afford to pay anyone else to do it professionally. And then get back to me on that inadequate thing.

But I'm on the water!! And that's all that counts!!
