More like a dream cave I'm afraid. Living "down in the hole" is a pain, always popping up the stairs to see what's happening.

Imagine trying to tell someone what it was...

no, it's not a sail boat, or a trawler, or a cruiser, or a speed boat, etc....

it's a two masted motorsailer...

I find it "comfy". Might be the bubblehead in me though...

Interesting boats

Oh man, I like that boat. I actually don't mind living "in a cave" as they say-- I find it cozy. Plus I enjoy the low windage.

I just with I had a bit more "cave" to live in...

Weel found....and signed!

[QUOTE=harbor950;431329]Another Beeldsnijder, Dutch, 1979, 54ft.


In visiting the Netherlands this week, I was sorry to hear of Beelsnijder's passing a couple of weeks ago. I was able to oogle several of his designs close-up on the trip. All very nice.
For those of you aware of the reason for this trip, the survey went very well and we closed on Libra while we were there. Now just the long wait for the long voyage she will make.

A few pictures in the mean time....
The boat at the dock.
Her cooling fins that look like they may also act as bilge keels
Her flared rudder with 38x26 four blade prop
A couple of the hull sounding that show 10mm plate in the keel and 6mm plate for the rest of the hull all in as good as new condition. Surveyor said she will go another 100 years.
The markings on the hull also show lines and hatch marks denoting the cement in her hull for ballast. We are thinking over 16,000#.
these folks were not fooling around. this seems like quite the 'ship'.

Can't wait to see her home, this qualifies as 'interesting' for me anyway!

Sorry for the orientation challenge in the photos, could not figure out how to fix it......mods? Much better in real life.

Get building; the plans and cutting files are only $1400.

Over 100 hulls already built: impressive!

20 tons x300 = 6k materials plus assembly time & welding.
