Another Interesting Boat..

Iíve seen most of the boats in our area, except for this one. Tussler drove by today. They added a nice swim platform to get to the toys easier.

Is that netting on outriggers? What for? Is it just a people hangout.
It does appear they have heavily optimized that boat for creature comforts. Looks like fun.

The ship's log ..... with some searching it can be found. I know this because I copied the USS Nautilus's ship's log when they went under the north pole. He was on board but, I did not get the log to him till after he died. His family was more than happy to get that part of history. All those on board were able to sign the ship's log.

Start with Annapolis.... I believe all US Navy ship's logs are transferred there upon the retirement of the ship.

Yes, that is netting. It caught my eye as well. It would be fun to lay across it while out. The reconfigured swim step is huge, and set up for access to paddle boards, swimming, etc. They definitely had water sports in mind during the rebuild. Interesting to read her history. It is great that people make the investment to keep these old boats alive.

"... great that people make the investment to keep these old boats alive."

That is true!!

In addition, but in a lesser height of aplomb - > nearly all on TF are investing to keep our older boats afloat!!

Nice tug, but not an ocean tug. Inland critter for sure!

Not your usual "Interesting Boat", this is the "South Steyne",an historic and I think beautiful former Sydney ferry, which steamed to Australia on its own bottom from the UK where it was built, in I think 1938. It operated on the Sydney Manly route until a fire, the Govt owners chose not to repair it. It then passed through several hands and restoration attempts before the current owner brought it back to former glory. A great piece of Sydney maritime history, at home on its usual run, or transiting open waters.

I completely agree. That may just be my new favorite boat. Thanks, Fletcher 500 for posting that.

In one of the pictures the griddle/burner looked like it was built into the deck floor,! then I saw it is on a cabinet.

It states it can go 17kts in reverse. Face it, high speed reverse ain’t cheap.

Is this Australian humor? I’m not getting it.

Boy that one has seen its days gone by. I think they are trying to sell a legacy, not much left of the boat itself.

Way too generous! Maybe the head looks good because they use the decks.
