Yup ...

Looks much better and would be a better boat for it Larry.

It sorta has a modern slick look about it and a home built plywood boat look all in the same package.

Beach,
Some people like a powerboat that's very tall. Gets more floor/deck space to be sure. I see it looks like your own boat (in avatar) is very tall so you can relate to same thinking it's not odd looking or top heavy. But you may have experience that is all positive and not problematic re the CG or windage.

Just don't try and dock in 30 + mph cross winds. It can prove to be quite difficult.

If you don't want to stand tall and see the sea... why don't you have a sail boat where blow-power is free!?

Do you not like being up for the view and ease of piloting? Fear of heights... vertigo, maybe!

Inquiring minds want to know!

Art,
On a sailboat people usually are down close to the water where they belong.
Sailboats are useless unless their engines are quit. Why support two expensive propulsion systems? Blow power is far from free. Sails and rigging is expensive. Little open sailboats are fun but see no point in bigger ones.

Fear of heights? My hand gliding days say no to that Art.

Depends what the boat is for.

Distance travel , esp in a small boat that would be overburdened with 3000-4000 miles worth of fuel aboard.

If someone simply wants to travel a 30 ft sail is far better than waiting to buy a $1,000,000 motor boat to do the same voyage.

For lakes , bays and the loop a $3,000 old Bayliner gasser is all that is really needed.

This was berthed near us in Ft.Myers last year at the Legacy Harbour Marina. Its the STILLETTO, a 48ft replica (1972) of a L. Francis Herreshoff torpedo boat. It was powered by a 75 hp Yanmar and the owner said it would run over 35 knots. The owner and the man in the picture is Halsey C. Herreshoff, the grandson of Halsey Herreshoff.
Just wish I had taken more pics of it.

Yes Nimble1,
Don't know if I can swallow the 35 knot claim though . however I wish you had taken more pictures. Don't know much about Herreshoff but the man even made an ugly anchor beautiful. Everything his name is associated with is beautiful and I'm sure just as functional. Thanks for sharing. And it's hard not to notice how low his Stilletto is.

FF if I want to go 3 or 4000 miles I'll take an airplane. But your comment about the Bayliner is a good point.

Eric, like yourself I questioned the speed figure but the fine bow entry and fairly narrow beam plus the 75 hp Yanmar will probably push it close to that. I don't really think it is very heavy either.

The “Coastal Queen”.

The book “The Inside Passage” was written about her. She was built in 1928 in Maryland. Her construction is fir planks over white oak frames. She was commissioned as an “oyster buyboat” and eventually converted to a private yacht.

She makes the trip up and down the ICW every year. I saw her in Ft. Lauderdale last March and again a couple of days ago in transit in Myrtle Beach. A true classic. KJ

Some of these boats are absolutely beautiful. I recently posted about ferrocement in another thread. This particular ferrocement trawler caught my eye... I had the picture saved on my hard drive and can't recall where I found it. It is one of the few ferrocement trawlers (perhaps the only one I have ever seen) that actually looks nice. I love the FD hull.

I saw this older vessel while we out cruising last weekend. It is locally built with a wooden hull and looked to be in very good condition.
