Well I was a truck driver and heard that expression quite a bit. Been away from it for some time now so when I hear "rig" it sets off something.

Like your new avatar but miss the old one.

Actually, Eric, I have done my share of truck driving. I would consider the boat loaded on a trailer pulled by a truck a rig. It is also quite a common term used by RV owners.

Rig, they drill for oil with it, don't they?

Back on track....

They have added a significant number of photos to the listing, including some shots of the original PMM article. From the PMM photos you can discern to some degree what the vessel looked like previously. The primary difference, at least externally, is that the window treatment and doors were originally bright teak.
And there was no canvas contraption covering the upper deck.

What about the fake brick paneling in the salon?

Photos 32-36 only make things worse. Who needs to see the pocket knife, screwdriver and misc screws / bolts on the helm?

It almost looks like review photos from a prospective customer. I usually take photos of things that are questionable to review later...

Looks like a dream that turned into a nightmare

Looks like a Skookum 53, built, I think, in Port Townsend.

I look forward to your report back, although I suspect it will be depressing. Good comment on the nightmare.

According to the owner, Topaz was Ed Monk Sr.'s last boat. A one off built at McQueen in Vancouver. It quietly glided into Sidney today and I spent a chunk of afternoon with the owner. Nice boat, great people. They are the second retired couple I have met this summer who never owned a boat until they bought their current one.

I'm betting FRP. Ed Sr. had become quite attached to fiberglass... a tradition his son Ed Jr. carried on. I think Monk Jr's. still with us designing boats??


That's a nice looking boat. Clearly Appears Ed Sr. had reverted to square windows for his last drawing... the way his designs started decades ago!

if you look at the engine room pics in the above link it appears to show substantial ribs, and a fantastic E.R. built in 71.. it is amazing. I would put up with wood to have that boat.

also note belt guard on genset!
