Newly arrived resident in our marina. Looks like a Willard but not sure. Absolutely immaculate outside and apparently the same inside. (It may have already been featured in this thread, but after 800 posts I've lost track.)

Looking at the pilothouse glass one would bring to mind a 36 Willard pilot house, however this being a Willard surely escapes my mental inventory of the line as being one. Nice boat though I would expect to find it a "One Off".
It is boats such as this that make exceptional choice for our Southeast Alaska "Wet" conditions where interior comfort obtains high marks
Be nice to have interior photos, Any chance you could be bold and introduce yourself, explain Trawler Forum to the owners (If they might be members or know of it) seeking such photos?
I am a total sucker for and lust over the Portuguese Bridge trawlers of any makes. Several have been featured in this thread. They are ageless in design and so salty.

Willard did make a number of one offs, or very small numbers of specific models which were well outside the 30/36/40 trawlers that we are familiar with. I vaguely recall seeing photos of this one somewhere and thought it was identified as a Willard. But not sure.
The owner, whose beautiful Skookum 53 burned at the dock a few months ago, is rarely around but if I do catch him I'll play the investigative reporter and see if I can get some photos!

That boat must be a Willard as it was at a Willard rendezvous recently.
Anchor looks small for this size boat.

It is a Wilard, 46 or 47 I believe. Recently for sale and it is immaculate inside and out.

Okay- Those of us familiar with the design and those who know will agree that the family of Willard designs are delightful. Thanks Eric, easier to see the lineage with your photo. Maybe CP has a handle on the "Sale" photos and could attach.
The 36' pilot house model even with being a high center appearing rig, is the one I have most admired. Always thought adding a bit of lead ballast would quite one down if in fact, they tend to roll.

Al,
The only one I've been aboard had active stabs.
I love the hull but would'nt have one for the wheelhouse being too high or low.

1940 Burger

I was taking a walk to the Manistee lighthouse yesterday when I spotted the Pilgrim heading south on Lake Michigan. It made the turn into the inlet and proceeded up the Manistee River. I walked home and grabbed the admiral and we drove into town and saw the Pilgrim docked at the municipal docks.

The Pilgrim is a 65' steel hulled Burger that was built as a custom pleasure boat in 1940 in Manitowac WI. She was promptly enlisted for the coastal protection at the beginning of WWII and returned to the owner in 1946. My understanding is she has only had three owners and the last retrofit was in 2008 when the hull was painted black. The brass and brightwork are impeccable. The admirable snapped a few pics with her iPhone which unfortunately don't do justice to the beauty of this boat. I was doing my best not to drool.

Donsan,
Were you looking at the boat or the deck hand?

Al,
This is a good example of why fwd slanting windows look silly or even stupid as in this example. Many or most fwd slanting windows look good and are nice for the owners or helmsman but like lots of things "somes good mores better" Just dosn't work. The hull is quite nice though. But then the owner of that boat may think my vertical (almost) windows look stupid.

I will take the 5th on that...

My understanding is she was part of the crew and the owner was not aboard. The hailing port is Bay Harbor MI so not sure why she is headed south. Seems late to be a looper but the air draft is certainly less than 19'. It would be interesting to know the draft.

Keith, that is a great conversion. It's hard to see that it started out as a school bus.

The steel Coot has no cored decks, but one needs to keep on top of rust. Annual touch-up is a must.

Al: I think you may have found a new "wannabe window" champion with that one. Here it is, pictured with a Universal Litton, now the runner-up. Still, Eric points out that the hull looks pretty good. If we could only get Eric to move into the "forward leaning" 21st Century, it may be a great boat for him. The interior doesn't look bad either.
