Manyboats, are those horizontal strips on the stern quarter some type of a boarding ladder?

bones,
I see no ladder at all. Just small rub rails.
Al (lives in Ketchikan) says there are young people tenting the boat now.
May be good intentions but I suspect a livaboard. It's very common to live on boats close to sinking from neglect as they are dirt cheap and apartments in AK are NOT cheap. The fact that they are covering her is also a good sign. Depends if they're trying to save the boat by keeping the fresh water off the deck and house or just avoiding leaks inside.

Greetings,
Mr. 99. Just a guess but I think those short strakes aft are to protect the hull when equipment (nets? trawls?) is hauled aboard. The hauling gear is in a fixed position so any chafe occurs at that same spot on the hull.

bones, RTF:
You can see the Trolling poles in one of Eric;s photos. Dixie was then set up as a Salmon Troller. When hauling in the lines, the last thing to come in is the lead ball at the end of each line. The one closest to the troller is always the heaviest, often 25lb, but even the lighter ones from further out (10 lb) can make a sizeable bruise on the planking if hauling in much of a seaway. That is why there has to be something there to take the hit.
Not nets, Not a trawl.

I have noticed the Dixie II in Sitka most of this last summer. She was owned by a Sitkan by the name Henery Moy and he fished her for several decades. He passed away about 10 years ago. I watched him rebuild the stern on her and should have taken some photos. There a book written in the 1930s? on trolling and it featured this boat. The leads used for fishing this power troller probably ranged from 30 to 60 pounds. Sweet little boat and Henery was a great guy. I enjoy power trolling on friends boats, never wanted to own one.

Montego is a beauty, reminds me a bit of the Feadship's Orion.

Montego spent a week or so at the dock in Campbell River this summer, awaiting charter guests I believe. Gorgeous, and hard to believe she is a wood yacht.

No Eric, I am to understand that the intent is to rebuild the house and deck. May not develop though the harbor department made a fuss about the full cover as a aesthetic issue and had to be convinced the rebuild was valid. So we shall see.

Don't know if this has been here before, but it came to my attention today. To me the exterior is not at all attractive, but the aims of the concept seem about right. With the hull form and light weight I would guess she's tender initially (under foot) which might put many off. The deckhouse interior seems nice and bright, though overall it's very stark.

To me an interesting boat......

So aesthetics have come to Alaska.
Never seen a harbor in Alaska w/o lots of tented boats. Especially in the winter.
Can't imagine that happening in Thorne Bay.

Thanks Tad,

Something in the hull form reminds me of our Necky Tofino double sea kayak, which when loaded with supplies and all that weight below the waterline rides waves like a duck. Would be 'lively' though for sure! You could explore some skinny water, slip into lagoons, or anchor in river pools at high tide...it'd be a game changer on a lot of fronts.

Perhaps a bit of a wet boat?

Wet .... who cares!
I'd forgive that boat for worse than a wet windshield.
Perfect replacement for my old Willard. I've looked at a lot of other boats w an eye toward finding them a better boat than the W30. All have come down as great boats but ...... . No "but" that I can see on this one TAD. Thanks for posting.

At least as far as I can tell, no one ever picked up this concept and built it commercially in this length or any other?
I agree, interesting. I wish I could find interior pictures and an example drive train of a real life version.
