Yep,...you're sure right about that. I guess when it comes to dreaming about boats, I'm more of romantic than practical, sometimes missing the obvious. When I have to invest money, it's the other way around.

Check out the outside steering on this albeit more expensive example:

A beautiful boat. I don't think many were made, and most were a trawler configuration rather than sail. Jim Backus (of Victory Tug fame) was the designer.

Thanks for the info! I think I've seen one or two on YW before. They are just gorgeous!

Well, I have to say that its definitely an interesting boat. I like the attention given to the wiring and plumbing.

I've been aboard that boat. Very interesting use of space and wood construction. Very modern wood boat. It was about 10 years ago that I saw her.

Only a foot shorter than Willy but burns half as much fuel. Half the weight .... that's all there is to it. Actually Willy's more than twice her weight. Perhaps a 36' Raven would burn fuel at the same rate as Willy. Shows what an efficient trawler could do. How many 36' trawlers do you know burn only 1gph? But I'll bet one of the reasons Raven is light is the fact that she's wood and of modern design and constructions.

Our friend from Brazil will soon be presenting numbers that will make most of us green w envy.

Re the Willard's in post #472 that's my favorite Willard model. I wonder if the box in front of the trunk cabin is for the anchor rode as is the case w Willy.

I like it. Ugly in a utilitarian kind of way.

Hollywood,
"the Swiss Army knife do boats". Exactly.
I don't think it's really ugly though. I think you like boats to be traditional. I think it's attractive in a homespun way. Kinda like a VW Beetle. Nice design but unusual.

Fits the thread title .. interesting boats.

Greetings,
I can't help wonder how long those bolted fastenings, friction fit panels and varnished/coated surfaces will last in a seaway and exposed to the elements.

Greetings,
Mr. A. I think it is a wonderfully done and neatly crafted vessel with very good use of space but a bit "fussy" for my liking.

I'm with you on this one Jack. The thing I find most interesting or useful is the drop down transom. Reconfiguring looks like it'd get old on the third night though.
