37 foot fisher

This is a test in the process of leaning to post photos. This is a photo of the 37 foot fisher trawler not the 37 foot motor sailer. This photo shows the four foot extension to the stern.

This wonderful Calvin Beal (I think) Lobster Boat is a few spaces down from me. I've been getting to know the ol' timer who owns it, an 81 yr old boat builder/lobsterman and trying to get him to start taking me out and teaching me the ropes of lobstering.

Nice lobster boat design. Love those diamond windows/port holes.

You stated correctly... there are ropes galore in Lobstering - lol. Early 1970's I crewed for a while in Maine off Rockport and Camden harbors. Still have several Lobster men as great friends. Cool, rugged bunch of folks!

The lobsterboat in 82 is beautiful indeed.
The low freeboard aft is very well suited to the job but I can't see the need for the extremely high bow. Everybody loves a sweepy sheer line though .. me included. It says to me commercial and industrial things can be subject to style and fad also.

Marty,
Re the Cheoy Lee do they still call that type of boat a "houseboat"?

Eric ,not sure about the houseboat thing , but I would trade our old 110 year old house that we rebuilt for that Cheoy Lee and call it my new home . Don't think Joy would though .

I don't recall Cheoy Lee using that name, but there was a Trumpy "houseboat" at a recent Lake Union boat show. Very...vintage feeling. Looked like a huge money pit, and that would be after an expensive renovation.

Wayfarer,
I agree and I like the boat a lot. I think I always like Charles Nevelle boats. Look how narrow it is. But 2500 gal of fuel tells me I'm dream'in about someone else's boat. Looks like she'd be fast for a FD boat. The buttock lines are easy aft and fairly straight but steep enough for FD. WL length is maximized ... or not far from it. Yes like.

"Best looking" because Champion was designed by William Lapworth, he of Cal sailboat fame. She went around the world in the late 1970's. The really interesting part is that her 6-71 engine is in the bow, the foremast is the exhaust. A pretty boat that slides right along, but she really needs the stabilizers.

Interesting boats

Would you go to sea in this bad boy? Gambling boat at Port Aransas. Looked sketchy IMO. Not sure I would want to go out in the Gulf in this thing.

siestakey,
One dosn't usually bathe in the sunshine and open air while gambling no?

Looks seaworthy enough to me. No details known however.

Reminded me of The Wally Ace which is 80' by 26' ( I think)

They claim 2mpg at 8kts with twin cat 375hp derated engines at 800 revs.....really?
