Hey, Eric, we agree on that, even tho my boat has one. I could do without it easily. Here is my all time favourite best-looking boat.

Hey Healhustler, if you are looking on...what would Lotus look like sans flybridge...? We already have her with wannabe front windows…

It moves a little off topic but for the previous posters on boating with veterans here is a link which is actively operating in the St Clair area. I remember it because I participated last year. Imagine that a Canadian!

Featured in this month's Log newspaper as a SoCal Classic, "Tonina." Built in Santa Barbara, by the Lindwall Boat Works in1964, and designed by Art Defever. "The boat is built out of heavy scantlings and is entirely fastened with Monel. Every bolt, nut, washer, and nail- everything is Monel."

Fun to play with, Pete, but she sure looked naked without anything up there....had to mount the proper equipment. Here's standard and wannabe versions. Sans fly-bridge also need a visor.

Peter that all time looker boat of yours is a real beauty even though it has a pair of those slab like overhanging roof supports. Would be prettier w/o the ports on the side of the hull too. Breaks up the long lines on the hull sides.

The PS w/o FB pic of Lotus would look better from another angle I suspect.

Even though I'm anti-fly Bridge I think Lotus looks odd w/o. Perhaps a railing in-between the antennas or even a smaller FB? Very small.

I have to agree with Eric...looks odd. Perhaps a tiara style roof line (similar to how Tonina looks above) might suit it better, but I like the boat better with the FB than without.

I just returned from dinner aboard Anja and Lori (the better half) is a great cook. Fokke and she are quite a duo. I had fun, as did Skipper.

The best part though was your picture bobsyiruncle. They didn't have one of her under sail and now, thanks to TrawlerForum and your post, they do. Yours will be the new boat card.

Thanks -- and yes, the boat is every bit as interesting inside as out. I've got lots of pictures and will be doing an article (most likely two or three) about the boat. Fokke built her.

Well, there yah go. Both the anti-flybridge guru, Eric..and the guy who took it off..(Thanks Heals)…agree she, being Lotus, (not the wife), looks better with her flybridge on. Thank you umpire…thank you ball-boys…game set and match..!

Actually, Eric, mate…do you need your glasses specs re-spec'd so to speak. There are no ports along her hull, (scuppers yes, but no ports), and no, how did you describe it…"pair of those slab like overhanging roof supports". The only supports to the flybridge canvas extensions are those in each stern corner and they are the same stainless tubing the frame is made of. I think you are mistaking the actual window frames as "those slab like overhanging roof supports"...

Actually Heals…I think she would look not too bad without the flybridge if the radar/antennae/spotlight frame was more for'd, and with a low fairing around the front of the bridge deck. What does appeal in the non F/B style is all that lovely flattish surface for mounting solar panels etc. Also, how would she look with powered crane and dinghy up there towards the stern, with dinghy in line fore & aft, rather than across the beam. That could work perhaps..?

PS, strangely, without the flybridge, I actually thing the version with the wannabe windows looks the best, don't you think.

I dunno, Pete. I couldn't get the thing looking right until I put some equipment on it.....yeah, equipment....think "equipment".

So far post # 452 looks best.

I hate the cutesy phony look'in stacks but but visually it has merit here. Please don't do that Peter.

Now that I've gotten a bit used to it the boat IMO definitely looks better w/o the FB. Boats w a raised PH and lower aft cabin do visually work better w/o the FB but the pic Peter chose isn't the best for the purpose.

I saw a pic of a 32 GB w/o FB and it looked great. But the 32 GB looks great anyway. Boats are less toy'ish and more salty looking w/o the FB. Even a commercial boat looks more yachtish w a FB.

C electric's boat looks REALLY good WITH the FB but style wise it's a very special boat.

And re post 441 the wannabe windows look terrible.

Thank heavens I'm much to invested in the boat I've got. I've seen fewer affordable boats nicer than that one, at least from what's visible. I don't even want to read the spec's.

I like it. She'd be a nice boat for up here in the spring fall and winter, but can't imagine being confined to the pilot house or cabin in the summer or warmer climates. Not a lot of outdoors room to hang out.
