I don't think I'd want to sit in those swiveling chairs in any kind of seaway!

Here's a Fales Navigator 38 image I found on the 'net:

The boat in my pic looks like it has a longer cabin than the smaller Fales but not as long as the 38 with 4 ports versus the 3 in my pic...but I am not that familiar with Fales.

On the Atlantic ICW, 90% of the time you could easily sit in those seats and just hold on for the wakes (not bad if you don't travel with the snowbird packs).

I've only seen photos of the original Malahides, this one is far far better. What a beautiful boat.

Built here in the good ol' emerald Isle.

A beautiful working boat, Greenwell Point

IMHO, this is the most beautiful boat in our harbour. She's 50', wood, slipped twice a year, and immaculately maintained by her owner. I have a standing offer to go out on her, but have not taken it up yet.

I have a yacht that I am using as a motor sailer; but want a 40' version of something like this. I grew up on/around Army work boats (also wood, and 40') so this length, line, and function satisfy something at a deep level.

There's not a straight piece of timber on her, apart from the transom. Efficient cruising speed is 89Kn, according to her skipper, but I have no further technical details. They fish by hand, too.

Not sure how to rotate images here.

Lovely lines, she would make a great trawler conversion platform.

I have only read the first 55 pages on this thread, but already it is a wonderful resource in helping me to refine what I really want. The boat above is a working fishing boat, and there are no signs the owner want to retire!

Pretty boat; I often think its the combination of rugged work boat looks and swooping lines that makes the most beautiful boats.

Go- faster gin palaces don't have the heritage to pull it off; neither do their owners.lol.

Larry,
The oxygen tent lacks class but I like the basic layout. The tent top reminds me of the old ladies off the cruise ships walking the streets of towns in Alaska w a clear plastic rain hat. The aft cockpit is good. Small boat for this type but looks good.

Now that you've been "released" from the Alaskan, this would be a good alternative. Not exactly the same space, but mucho class and lots of projects you can get your hands into.

Hope the owner isn't a member here at TF as his boat took flak on its first posted picture.
