Larry, the port-a-john was an exceptionally nice touch. Quite civilized I must say.

Buck's Harbor morning: A small Back Cove (Sabre), a Blue Seas, just visible on the right a small Ellis and what's the "tug"? A Lord Nelson or something else?

Are there transient moorings available there? I don't see anything in Active Captain for Buck's Harbor.

Buck's Harbor Marine has transient moorings for rent. Also, many of the private moorings have no boats on them lately. Pick one up and wait. If no one kicks you off by late pm you should be fine for the night.

Thanks. Another design to store in my depleted brain cells. Nice boat.

I don't think it's so hot. Looks like there's no place for a dinghy. That's odd for a boat this size. And the lines are too chunky for my tastes. It looks big and comfortable and possibly capable .. except for launching a dinghy. Must be a way but I don't see it. Somebody help me out here.

Eric- that looks like a boom with the American flag attached. It seems to have plenty of room possibly on the aft up top for a large dink??

Fork.
So you think that canvas top is temporary?
You're probably right. They just fold it down when the dinghy is needed. Perhaps they don't often use the dink. Ours is more of a life boat than a dinghy.

Eric, according to the ad in Tad's post the boat has room for a 17' launch. At any rate 6'-3" of headroom in the engine room would gloss over many other perceived sins IMO.

According to an internet, she's home to a travelling stage company.
Like this??
The Amara Zee spent several months, maybe more in Lafitte, Louisiana I took this picture of her around 2006 the must have been doing repairs. Maybe enroute to or from Texas. Lafitte is right on the ICW about 15 miles West of Harvey Lock, & New Orleans. Going through the locks with those Leeboards must have been tough, I see they do have a small fender on one.

How about this setup, right on the very busy GICW just west of New Orleans.

Hi Loafs and fishes.

They would never get to do that in Australia, I am not sure how secure the person in the E W P would feel at that height on an unstable platform. I have seen these thing move about just with the wind blowing.

We were headed through the Seattle locks this morning (along with about 100 small boats heading to the hydroplane races, what a nightmare), and this was on the wall opposite us. I don't know that it qualifies as "interesting", certainly different and to me at least really ugly.

I don't think ugly is too strong a word for that boat. At least the owner doesn't have to worry about it ever being stolen.
