In our local boatyard today. (A small portion of our boat just visible in the background). A little foggy this morning.

An A F Theriault build.

Found her online too.

Are those rear view mirrors on the bow railing?

That's something new, for sure!

Greetings,
Mr. s99. GOOD catch. Hmmm....Rear view mirrors. That alone opens a plethora of VERY interesting ideas. Thanks for that.
Oh, and Barvaria...Front half appeals to my eye but back half, not so much. Also, interior looks a bit too much like a Home Depot design for my tastes. Maybe it's the expanse of light wood...

A. F. Theriault is known for commercial vessels and some pleasure craft. I have not seen one that was not a bit more commercial than most other designs. Built like tanks but kind of square shouldered.

This seems to be a similar boat to that one, but without the mirrors, and add the flybridge.

Personally, I prefer the 'no bling' workboat heritage that the Theriault boats exude.

Greetings,
Mr. s99. Well, that YW listing is probably one of the best I've seen photo-wise. Indeed an interesting boat.

That boat far exceeds the photos on her listing. I was impressed with much of that boat and the detail of how well it was laid out.

There were a few minor things that didn't fit me, like the headroom (I'm over 6' 3" tall and dusted the ceiling frequently. The lazarette was full of headaches if you don't watch it. Two low tech long life engines and lots of fuel to go wherever you want. Getting into the master, there is a step, and a head knocker for me. It wouldn't take but a few times to remember that one tough.

If only Arthritis didn't sideline me...

Not THAT new. I had to install them on loafs and fishes because of how slow she is. I have to keep an eye out for kayaks and canoes overtaking me. In fact, my boat is so slow...........how slow, you ask?
I have to clean bug splatters off the back windows.

You can laugh at rear view mirrors but I think they are a nice safety item. Whether checking on your skiff/tender being towed or traffic overhauling you in the ICW, a quick check on the mirrors is prudent in my book. Certainly not going to be approved by the Politically correct, yacht club membership.

Mirrors are fairly commonplace in my neck of the woods. House boat crowd takes it to another level and often has big rig style for a great view.

These boats were in the yard yesterday morning. I believe the first one is a Willard. The great big one has been in our harbor for years. It's wood, and I can only assume the owner gets some money toward restoring it and it's hauled and a bunch of work done. Then it goes back in the water and sits for another year or two and then has another burst of work done on it. A number of years ago the entire back end of the hull was completely rebuilt.

I have no idea what it is. I recall hearing that it was originally a naval vessel of some kind, but I don't know that for sure. The props are massive. The yard was very smart in adding a 150 ton Travelift to their original 35 ton lift. The big lift brings in a lot of work, particularly during the winter when the yard is packed with big seiners and combination boats, some down from Alaska.

I don't know what the last boat is, either, but it's real pretty.
