As you know, many wooden boat owners insist on being hauled on a railway. Much more forgiving and predictable.
*My concurrent hoisting was by mobile crane and straps.* All previous hoistings (for delivery) were by shackle and cable ala container, using the steel-hulled Coot's*four permanent hoisting points as shown in previous photos.* Doesn't stop the nail-biting, however.

RE: Hull Shapes----Show us your girl's bottom

Here are two pictures of my vessel, one at 1750 RPM and 8.1 knots in flat water near Taku BC. The other of the aft hull, note rounded bottom. The DeFever 48 is different than some in the DeFever line with these rounded aft sections.

Mike, for some reason I was unable to view your sketches on my WIndows 7, any tricks I should try?

RE: Hull Shapes----Show us your girl's bottom

Eric- What you can't see in those pictures is my "brakes", a 2200 hp twin screw tug to stop me. I would have him go 30% astern and pull the barge and him into the lock. As I approached the end of the lock, I would have him reduce to 10% , then I would take it out of gear and we would all stop. A standard maneuver in tight quarters for tugs. We did 15 locks in 2 days. The rudders give no trouble, she has quick steering (about 12 seconds hard over to hard over, but the clutches are kind of slow-around 8-10 seconds to engage (it can be an eternity while manuevering 975 tons around).
Carl
The grill on the bow is a bow thruster (300 hp 8-71). I don't know what the diameter of the tthruster prop is.
Since you were aboard last Feb, She hasn't stopped for more than a day or two. Much of the worn paint near the waterline is from working in the ice (Hudson river). The crane barge is there to lift a 120 ton barge section from the drydock floor to hang on the new barge so welders can attach it , 3 other sections will be attached in the next few weeks. That barge is surplus to the companies needs in NY, so it will become part of the shipyards dockside arsenal.

RE: Hull Shapes----Show us your girl's bottom

Now this is real progress. A trawler that has a hull that's actually well suited to her trawler speeds. Can't see it from in the water pics at all. This is (to me) the most important part of a trawler. I'm guessing it's a Selene. Nice keel and rudder. Interesting thruster. But most important is the high (for a trawler) QBBL angle. Wish Nordic Tugs were like this.

Yes it has a Selene with a very high angle that caused the lift and block guy a bit of confusion when I made him block the front end a foot higher than the stern.

Our motor Banca in the Philippines. 53' and has a automotive transmission. Clutch and four forward gears. Reverse is about useless, makes lots of noise but takes forever to stop using reverse.

Shiny props, Ray. Looking good. ... Saw the Mahalo Moi resting comfortably in the Vallejo Marina today. Is the canvas covering the stern new?

freshalaska,
It appears the Joy of Life has amas. What is her displacement and power. Hull speed must be really mov'in along.

When I see this thread w a new post I'm always eager to see what's new.
Fryedaze, I can see a twist in your stern bottom and know Giggitoni has even more. From the side your boat has that just right look about it that is frequently the mark of a classic. VERY nice looking boat.
