Could be an old converted oyster luggar or a tender used to haul people on Lake Ponchartrain, Ship Island or lower Barataria Bay. Hope ya having fun!

Thanks Marin, Not really back just kicking back in the hotel lounge after finishing an installation near Cannes. Felt compelled to post about a very interesting (to me) boat and felt the exhaust thread rated a comment.

This odd looking creature was tied up near my home port the other day. She's called Amara Zee. This isn't my picture, as my phone was dead. She had her masts laid down and all of that scaffolding was heaped up in an awful mess on deck. Couldn't figure out what the hell her deal was.

According to an internet, she's home to a travelling stage company.

The scaffolding is for (stage) lighting instruments. How the boat is used is anyone's guess unless they use docks for their stages and the boat for lighting and whatnot.

This one spent the night anchored in the pass. I don't think I've seen her before. A really short, high, wide boat....about 50' long but the rest is right for an 80 footer.

TAD,
Looking at the LN tug picture an old question of mine comes up. In heavy headseas do those protruding anchors in their hawsepipes cause problems? Like structural issues re the hawsepipe or spray from the exposed anchors or even water comming up the hawsepipe?

Holy smokes, Tad, would I like to have those kinds of boats in my front yard as opposed to the same old boring, carved bars of soap.

Don't think so Eric. The tubes (hawsepipes) are simple and strong, much stronger than a roller perched on top of the bulwark. The anchor is winched up tight into the hawse, it can't move and doesn't have to be lashed in place. Ideally there is a chainstopper up on the deck to back up the winch brake. Water from waves will fountain up the tube, usual practice is to make plug/covers that fit around the chain on deck and slow the water down. Spray from the bow on these boats can be spectacular at times, but that's what the wipers are for....and deckhands to clean the salt off later.....

I guess we're lucky in that the PNW still has many unique boats cruising around. The soap bars don't get their pictures taken much........Come visit and you too could be interesting.....

Thanks very much TAD,
I really was curious about that. I don't like anchors sticking out beyond the bow and had it in the back (emphasis on back) of my mind to employ that feature on Willy but as much as I like modifing things I think I'll pass on this one. No wipers either .. and plastic windows.

Larry interesting? I thought he already is/was.

' Interesting' interpretation of the health and safety regs.

Plasterer's interpretation of a "tuna tower". OSHA approved with guard rails all around top scaffold frames. Ecologically clean with electric power and little wind resistance. No wake feature especially enjoyed in close settings at mariners and inside harbors. Can be equipped with pulpit as well as galley. Head accommodations are always available 360 degrees around hull edge... especially useful for male midnight needs!

Coming to a new boat dealer near you!

U


I love the high vis jackets and hard hats to comply with h&s, and then they build a massive 20' scaffold of a tiny floating pontoon finger that measures about 8' beam by 15' length, with a ob hung off the back.

Wonder how an insurance claim would have got on....

Lol.

I promise my photo wasn't photo shopped; I nearly fell out of my boat as it passed by yesterday.

I dunno..... I don't see a problem, really. If the water is this flat where they operate the thing, what the hell? It obviously gets the job done for them.

The fishermen I used to spot for in Hawaii had a somewhat similar rig although the boat was much longer. But it had a tower on the front almost this tall that one of the fishermen would stand in to look for schools of the kinds of fish they netted in the reefs. From that position he would guide the boat around the school as the net was paid out to couple of guys in the water.

The airplane was a more efficient and much faster method of finding the fish, and then when I returned when the boat was headed out, it was a more accurate way of guiding the boat around the school. In essence, it was purse seining but with a couple of guys in the water holding the end of the net in position while the boat circled the school paying out the rest of the net.

I suppose in our current nanny state these guys and their portable scaffold would be looked on in horror, but assuming it's not a doctored photo, this setup apparently works for whatever it is they're doing so no drama, as they say in Australia.
