If it weren't for the flying wheelhouse and the fwd mounted dinghy I'd probably like this boat.

The whole boat shows strong lines. Interesting windows. Notice the very nice looking short railings and how nice they look. The clean bow w/o the pulpit, anchor and stuff sticking out is another nice touch. The broken sheer makes her look shorter but adds to the strong straight line motif. Also all the ports have basically the same shape. Such a well integrated design indicates excellent taste and skill on the designers part. I'm impressed. No stock boat would ever be built like this and that alone makes her interesting. She was anchored by us in Very Inlet near Tree Point at the eastern end of Dixon Entrance. I think it used to be called Three Tree Point but perhaps the trees got blown away. The boat was gone before we got up. I don't remember seeing anybody. In the PNW we've seen a lot of boats at anchor showing no activity whatsoever. Other boats have far far more people activity than most anybody would want. But mostly It's that the fun in the sun party boats don't get far up the coast and that's where we've been.

Older one looks like a 26' motor whaleboat, that someone put a cabin on.

I don't know how old it is (there was an article on it in PMM a number of years ago) but it looks brand new.
Teddi Bear was built in 2006 and most likely is the newest Florida Bay Coaster. Her owner is a retired airline pilot - she is designed to carry a small helicopter on her upper deck. Thanks for posting.

Not a secure/safe arrangement! High, strong railings were my first priority!

Mark - I like your thick SS railings and agree with the high, strong intent. I'd say your Coot is about the safest on TF. Sure is nothing wrong with that!

Mark are you SURE the're high enough?

Don Chinook looks more like a "tug" than a trawler but that was the way of things in doze days. New Rosa, a converted fish boat in BC is MUCH more respectful of the original design and she still looks like a proper and serious boat. None of that pretentious clutter and cutesy stuff.

Here's more. I don't know why Rosa looks so skinny. Don't remember her being THAT skinny. It seems the kids are w the other boat. And a fine boat she is too.
And I'll bet those kids could make up a fine wood boat work party. I don't know what that other boat is.

Eric - You will virtually never hear me say the following, I usually do not comment on boat designs/looks... especially those simply pictured as boat-porn that are not even owned/used by a TF member - but - I will say in this case... I love that boat you photo... New Rosa! Would be proud to own and cruise that baby!! Even keep her name - it fits. Thanks for posting.

New Rosa is a real beaut, we rafted up with her for coffee in 2010. She's an Ed Monk design with a massive Cummins 855 engine. She looked beautiful with Island Eagle, but I don't have a picture.

New Rosa - Ed Monk design - No wonder she impresses/pleases me so much; I should have recognized that! Ed Sr and Jr. were lead naval architects on Tollycraft boats. Ya know... the classic FRP boat builder that gets my highest respect as best build-outs available in used medium sized craft!

bshanafelt,
I like the boat in the foreground better. You're welcome.

Been looking for and finally found this better pic of Averilla.

In post # 244, I posted this Universal Litton as what I figured would win the award for most wannabe (forward raked) windows, but without knowing that someone in the PNW (where wannabe windows are most treasured) would actually take it to a double extreme. Only Marin could actually certify the winner of a wannabe window contest, but this latest one would be my entry for sure. This is way beyond even my tolerance. The ad for it says it also features a dinette and small galley in the pilothouse, and notes that it is a great live-aboard. No Photo-Shop job here.

That new entry lives just a few slips down from us. It is a very tall boat and with all that weight on top it must be difficult to handle when the winds kick up.

This boat is owned by a friend on ours on western Prince of Wales Is in AK.
1. Notice the anchor carry through the top of the hull and the cap rail that
once had teak like our Willy.
2. Again the cap rail and I'm not clear on how he fiber glassed it into the
gunn'l.
One can see there is not very much chain in his rode. Notice the nylon
line just under the chain. With this type of winch (reel) you can have
quite a number of types and sizes of chain and line many thimbles and
shackles.
3. The smooth and uncluttered bow.
4 and 5.
Dry stack exhaust through the port side deck.

I have to admit, you could be right about that one, Eric. Original pic and fly-house removed below.
