Sorry, no solution for the sidedeck problem.

Boating is such a wonderful hobby - interesting vessels discovered all the time.

FB in Alaska?
Eric - I was brought up in NY, lived four years in Maine, couple years in upper Rockies, a decade in the upper Sierra Nevadas. I know cold. Seen many, many times when reaching "0" degrees f was only a wish and a hope. While living in cold country... At one span of time I owned a small fleet (3) of snow plow trucks that serviced golf course housing communities during winter months; always had at hand at least one nice plow truck for my own use.

Reason I say Flying Bridge is always needed for me to have on my boats: Because I plan to never again spend full-time life in cold country! I left cold country habitation in my mid 30's My boating is now in the really nice climate of fresh water, inland, San Francisco Delta's warm swimmable waters! I don't mind visiting cold areas - but, taint liven there again!!

Of my several must haves on a pleasure boat - Flying Bridge is #1. Walk around decks is a close 2nd.

Yes, and a 20 KG Bruce with 120' of 3/8" chain should satisfy even Eric.

If anyone has never been aboard one and gets the chance-take it. They are exquisitely beautiful, functional and seaworthy boats. Just a trivia point, John Trumpy's grandson, also John, was harbormaster at Daytona Municipal Marina for quite a few years back in the late 80's-early 90's.
Well I may be a little bit older, but when I was attending Univ of MD I made some trips down to the bay, and Annapolis in particular. I remember Trumpy's old yard, and in fact I located a sailboat business there in the late 70's.

I was real tempted to buy several ACF's and an Elco to refinish and live aboard after college. Those classics reminded me of this larger classic. BTW that larger vessel was not a Trumpy, but rather a Mathews build

Eric - No need to have 48' for a fly bridge. We had a beaut of a 1973 31 Uniflite with twins and a roomy fly bridge. Our 1977 Tolly is 34' tri cabin with a great FB... You too could have a fly bridge boat if desired.

That said - It is best to live in a climate where FB can be often enjoyed.

It's often too cold and sloppy to enjoy a flybridge even in the western Delta.

Al I bought Willy partly because a PO had removed the FB. You really would'nt want Willy to look like this .. would you?

Mark and I feel the same way on the FB issue.

Mark there's adds in that picture. And nobody hang'in on up in the FB. Would probably need seatbelts. In the days there used to be a bar in SanDiego that had seatbelts on the bar stools. "Picadilly" I think.

Saw this interesting boat today at the marina fuel dock. I had never seen a cruising " Shanty Boat " , the owners built it three years ago and are cruising down the Tennessee river from Knoxville headed for the Ohio river.
Marty if they dock at your marina you will see some very interesting wood work.

Greetings,
Looks to me like that shanty boat has a fly bridge if that upper port is any indication. An enclosed FB at that...

Eric, Dividend still there! May soon have a high number of governmental types on the streets.
We enjoy our fly bridge on our 27 foot Marben. Have not found the lack of walk around decks an issue. Don't tend to sleep walk, and with dock lines 25' long handling bow and stern is easily single handled. Then to when required, the grapple hook line from the fly bridge to the dock bull rail secured and tied off midship on the bridge makes single handling from the fly bridge a snap. 'KISS' has it's place.
Finally, I find the fly bridge Willard far more attractive and nautical over the 'Willie'. Sorry, personal view.

Fllying grapple hooks. Must be bull-rail territory, hopefully with no one near on the dock.

Prefer dock-level, 360-degree decks at same level as pilothouse.

Ya, it's a bit of fun to have visiting yachters offering a willing hand to be asked to stand clear as I heave the grapple out and over the bull rail. Looks of amazement when the hook is set and I yard the boat in broad side to the dock, particularly when the space allotted is in the 35 foot range, causing those same folks to become concerned during the approach.

There is always a bit of risk. I am sure the use of the grapple would be frowned on and not be acceptable in many parts of the country. Sort of like 'Open Carry' tends to freak folks out.

The use of the grapple works for me as does the common sense applied in the application, why compound the docking when you can 'grapple' it.
