Interesting boats

This boat was docked on a bulkhead on the Mississippi at the French Quarter. I was jogging down the seawall and checked it out.

120'. Had two 25' center console boats on the deck. Pretty cool setup.

They sailed from Australia. The guy said it had two cat Diesel engines. Thought he said 3208s but that doesn't sound big enough does it? He said it cruises at 8 knots.

Also has an interesting platform that lowered into the water where they tag sharks.

I'd rethink the solar panel set up, but this one's about as hairy chested as it gets

On this we can agree!!! There is a sister ship in wood berthed at Fisherman Wharf in Seattle. Comes through Ketchikan annually on charters. Just a Man's boat in every sense.

This should be an example in the "Is it difficult to sell a steel boat?" thread.

Torsk is a very cool boat.. the Admiral would lover her as she really likes Delfin .. seems like great value for a real passagemaker.

I found this one interesting.. it may have been here before so if it is a duplicate sorry for the post..

Al,

Perhaps you are thinking of the charter vessel Ursa Major which winters in Washington and charters out of Sitka in the summer. They have a cool web page if you wish to get a look at the boat.

I sure like that Romsdal, but Admirals says there's enough bodily hair around here already. The Nielson is also very masculine if not a bit high buck, but lacks nothing.

I had to go through the pictures of the Nielsen 3 times looking for a reason not to go get it! Only the price and it being too far away to go look several times.

Cool boat but seems pricey for a second hand steel boat. Thought we were supposed to be able to steal those? 😳

She is a beauty! However, if you are looking for another reason not to buy, her lower helm is pretty much unusable.

Conrad:
I agree, and I don't see the lower helm getting more instruments than absolutely necessary. If it was mine from the beginning, I wouldn't have bothered with the lower helm at all, but turn that part into more of the luxurious saloon. Maybe put the TV up on centre and away from the door.
Also, not sure about using those Lehmans. Better engine choices abound.

Yup. That was the deal breaker for me too. Running at night would be difficult.

I'd enjoy piloting at night high up above water level in heated enclosed bridge. Safety visual position and great place to see via spotlight. I try to not run at night anyway... much more chance of hitting semi submerged objects.

The lower helm could be lived with but I wonder how the furniture would fare in a seaway?
Also, as passage makers go seems light on fuel tankage to me. But the big deal breaker in my world is the galley down. She hates them.
