Hit an uncharged underseas mountain, caved in the bow, destroyed all the sonar gear and torpedo tubes, killed one Machinist Mate in the engine room.

Self driving cars are not going a very good job either.

Oh, I'm sure they will be happy to build one for you.

I would like the fiberglass to extend aft about 3-4 inches beyond the transom for added rain protection.
I extended the overhead on both my N46 and now my AT34/36 with canvas. Much better than the factory design open deck

Do you have any pictures of your extend canvas? Almost all of our aft deck is hardtop covered with the exception of the last 3 ft or so. I was thinking about canvas myself .

Mine is nothing special. Any good canvas shop can dseign and install the supports. Remember to slope it down at the aft end and at the port and starboard edges about an inch or two. This will reduce or prevent standing water.
Then, if you wish, canvas enough to close it totally in.
As I said, mine is not perfect. I figure, one more hurricane and I will renew the canvas and change the design a little bit.

Autonomous flying livery "Plars" [carting persons back and forth] in cities will be a gassss to behold during rush hours! Can you imagine a "Plar" jamb in the sky between skyscrapers; where all "Plars"must hover in place for a while?? Their winds would blow Don Don's gold colored hair right onto his shoulder. He'd call them fake taxies.

Uber drivers will go broke. "Plar" flying vehicles will be used just to get people to locations for spending $$$... cause... no one will need work any more as everything is automated by robots and the govt will monthly supply spending cash stipends to every citizen!

Tiz a Brave and Nutty Hi-Tech World we're entering into. Unfortunately, if we don't solve the soon to arrive in earnest, currently looming global ecosystem catastrophes... the words brave and nutty can be altered to read Bye, Bye Civilization - as we know it!

Jus sayen!!

Very nice lines! Had to look deeper into design. Really only a one couple's boat. Little skimpy on freshwater (80 gallons) for going cruising.

IF that's the only flaw you can come up with, install a 12vt water maker and 'head out'. SMILE

Diver, here is one for sale.... lists 120 gal of water.
Price is a bit much for me.

Yes for us we have plenty headroom, for you probably not. Remember we have a ceiling fan back there.

Boat for sale - Devlin Sockeye Fantail Cruiser - 45'
Ok, let me put it another way, it's a beautiful boat for a weekend getaway. For the length and cost, it lacks a lot as an extended range cruising boat. The water capacity of a sailboat and no water maker, is what first caught my eye.

Having spent 6 months sea kayaking, calling the Devlin Sockeye a weekend boat is laughable. Also, there’s plenty of fresh water to drink or replenish your tanks by rain, creek, or river on this coast!

I think uncharted rocks and shoals would trip up a manned vessel as well. I don't see the entire Navy going to autonomous ships, but I'm sure there are a lot of applications where a drone ship would be very useful.

Interesting boats come in all shapes and sizes...

How about an 800 pound 26' freighter canoe with 36" sides and a 7' beam? Even on the Labrador and Arctic coasts this would be a big one!

Chisasibi - Canots Nor-West

How about with a cuddy?

Pretty slick for hauling over ice flows and getting those Walrus back to camp

Had a chance to get on that Sockeye 45 was at the Seattle Boat Show. Tidy well laid out little vessel. Kind hard not to fall for her, but the price was a bit steep.

I've been on her at a boat show. Interesting boat, needs some re-work interior-wise in my opinion.

They mention 400 gallons of fuel capacity, but couldn't find engine size?

Their marketing is poor and probably why they don't have a waiting list.

Not interested....it’s a tad “bloated” for my tastes.
