Beautiful picts of wood boats. - Thanks for providing them!

4 hp Johnson on dink in left side of last boat pictured, named "Carefree", represents mid 70's circa... do you know if that is when picts were taken?

Starfire

Starfire is a Bill Garden design buit by Philbrooks. She is located here at the marina currently. Twin 12 71 NA. Too much boat for the likes of me but I am in love.

Art that was 1997 Duck Bay saltspring island.Carefree is still " well maintained" . Seaquel is a sister ship with a bit of a different look that is also very well cared for curently.

Here's an old 1955 totally glassed-over Chesepeake Bay Trawler, reportedly dry with zero rot and nothing in the bilge either. It's a local boat (Miami), a live-aboard, but somewhat unfinished. At 27,300 bucks, maybe it's someone's dream (or nightmare). Twin 671's.

In response to Andy's suggestion of having my CHB in the Classifieds section, after talking it over with my wife, it is a very good suggestion, and I even posted the boat on Craigslist... If she doesn't sell, and the anticipated funds become available, she will no longer be a 39' CHB Tri-Cabin, but magically (with a LOT of "sweat equity," LOL!) grow into a 45' EXTENDED CHB Europa-style Pilot-House Cockpit Cruiser... I've already drafted the floor plans and elevations, and they include a "sailboat stern" under the cockpit/swimstep add-on to reduce drag & improve fuel economy... The twin opposed single-direction stern thrusters will be replaced with a single reversible bow and likewise a stern thruster (yeah, maybe a bit overkill, but I like the "parallel parking" ability), keel-cooling, & dry exhaust with heat reclaim... A lot to chew on, but if it all works out, she'd definitely be "one of a kind," and the live-aboard functionality would be greatly improved, especially for my wife, who has fibromyalgia and needs to avoid excess stairs, especially the steep ladder-type presently in the Tri-Cabin.

And available at a very low price currently.......

What's really wonderful about these boats (Garden did this arrangement in various sizes) is that most of the interior and the cockpit are all on one level, stem to stern.......

Yup it was donated to the disabled sailing association a couple of years ago after being for sale for some time. Now she sits in wait of some love. I hope she receives it.

She's a beaut! What's the asking price? Is she full-on wood, or cold lam, or full-on FRP??

TY - Tad, for YW link... w/ 200 + picts!

Not that I'm runnen out to purchase this wooden-classic Garden Design beauty. But, for interest sake, do you know if her bottom fasteners were monel?

If I had unlimited resources for maintenance I might well make offer on this fast-cruise baby! Correctly/continuously applied upkeep could become costly. Would be real nice/comfortable craft to cruise Pacific Coast during seasonal times!

Tad - TY for fastener material answer. That's true, tall moorage costs! If I had her for coastal travel... much anchor-out would occur. IMHO, 62' is a bit of boat to parlay on a constant basis!

Anchor looks far too small.

What did the Navy plank the Minesweepers with? Kind of wood I mean.

Another sad story of Canadian maritime history ignored and forgotten. That's a Bay Class Minesweeper, one of 20 built in 1950-57. They are 152' by 28'. They were built on both coasts, I'll guess mostly Fir, all bronze fastened and strapped, notable for huge Aluminum(non-magnetic) block diesel engines.

This http://jproc.ca/rrp/bay.html states mahogany planking but I'm not sure I believe that......
