This is not an interesting boat, but is a boat being interesting.

Wild ride.

Jeffnick,
In the 4th pic up from the bottom there is a picture of a Bryant Bristol Bay Boat. Hundreds and hundreds of these boats were made and powered w Chris Craft and probably many other brands of engines in the 50s. Yes even CC made a flathead 6 marine engine. The boats had a mild tunnel stern to get in close to the beach. They were Gillnetters.

Yea I saw Delfin for sale many months ago. Things change ... we move on.

Wonder whatever happened to that? It always smacked of somebody trying to get their 15 minutes of fame. I guess perhaps that's what it was. Can't blame Carl for getting fed up with it.

A fleet of contraptions similar to this one are used extensively in the harbor at Sturgeon Bay Wisconsin to harvest the invasive sea weed that chokes the area mid-summer. They cut it about three feet below water line every week, dump it in the on-board storage bin, and then empty the bins on the shore. I've stood at the rail on my boat and directed the operator to cut about a foot under the hull. Amazing maneuverability and precision afforded by the paddle wheels.

One more from Lulu's. The concrete railing and blue bimini top are NOT a flybridge.

Steve it's a Duck isn't it? Wonder how they see where their going?

This boat was in Comox last summer. I really like the FB. It looks great and limits the number of people up there so is safer but mostly I just like the looks.

That is a home built Diesel Duck 48 that is chronicled on the Dieselduck.com website. The owner and his wife did a great job of building it the way that THEY wanted.

You know...I really like that boat and I wouldn't let the high freeboard keep me from it, but I gotta agree with Eric....at least from this angle, the bow is really an obstacle for forward vision. Steve, I'm tempted to Photoshop certify the fero-cement fly bridge.

Here's two interesting old boats that remind me of the Forest Service crew boats that were fairly common on the BC coast and in SE Alaska. Actually these two boats were probably retired from that service.

The OP of this thread featured a pic of a Fisher. Here is what the Fisher looks like below the water line.

The last pic is an unusual view of Willy. Shows how round the hull is.

Many of the PNW trawler looking boats have a high sweeping bow to protect the house. The ugly drum windless would block the view more then the high bow? Seeing close is mostly need for docking as most boats are visible with in a reasonable range, and you can step out the pilot house doors. Dang where did that little boat go?

Looking out the Eagle pilot house windows you can see over the bow. The Portuguese bridge is the same high as the windows, and at cruising hull speed the bow tend to raise up a bit so the house windows are protect as you can see in the avatar.

I still have my Fisher brochures tucked away from the 60's. always lusted for one. Ditto the Romsdahl.

I did own a Penbo 40, well deck trawler build of cedar on oak in Maine. Loved her! Photos to follow...
