If the engine space wasn't such a pain, I may have owned one. If Ken Fickett got the inspiration of the Great Harbor by combining the ideas of a Manatee and a Florida Bay Coaster, he must have got the stern platform idea from Menorquin.
Aha, someone who knows how to use Photoshop...

Could you try putting the trawler superstructure on top of the menorquin hull in post #2576 like you've just done above?

Thanks .

You're right, Eric. How could I have violated Willy like that.

Larry doesn't really live here among us. He exists in the imaginary world of PhotoShop. No one really knows where that is.

Lol.

I often think that a virtual world is far superior to the real one.

That pic takes me back ... back to Craig AK. It was two days running to get there from Thorne Bay where we lived. Spent the night on the north end of the island (45 miles X 145miles) at Point Baker. Then through Dry Pass and down to Craig. I miss Alaska but I'm glad I'm here now.

Thanks for the memory lane Larry. Yea the red is a big improvement.

There was one for sale on yacht world in Mazatlan MX for the longest time, but it's sold now. There is one that is in Rode island. There is another one on the east coast, not sure where exactly is being moored. There is one in Alaska in a bad shape I'm told. There is this buitifuly maintained one in Florida that I did not know about till now. And there is mine - The SeaWitch. My boat is getting Awlgripped and it's getting a layer of cloth and west systems under the waterline in Mexico.
I'm missing two...

Looks like a very pretty Awlgrip application. Angle of picture regarding boat bottom has my eye a bit confused. Do you have better (more square to transom) photo of bottom showing prop/keel?

Thanks, Art

Is that the angle you were looking for , or you were referring to an angle looking direct to the transom?

"Direct to the transom" would be preferred... if you have it easily available. Thanks!

Love that Seamaster's looks. The high bow is stylish and functional, but the view from inside the pilothouse must be impaired a bit.

McQueen didn't turn to building in Fibreglass until George McQueen retired. I toured the shop in 1980 or 81, while a wooden 80' (+ or -) was under construction and George was still in the top job. Later boats (1985 or so) were all FRP. His Monk McQueens, from the 70s and early 80s are still the sweetest looking wooden yachts around.

You are correct, for coastal cruising I find myself operating mostly from the command bridge. Great down south, and summer time in PNW. for offshore cruising the view from the lower helm is absolutely sufficient.

Interesting Setup

What else to you need? You can perform your own air rescue if needed...
