Larry,
I know the owners od both boats and both have put many miles under their keels.
The outriggers and gallows are all aluminium (heavy wall) and probably not really clear in my photos but the gallows on Stormboy are stayed with pipe to the aft of the wheel house and crosswise with wires and turnbuckles.
Cheers
Benn

She was beautiful... and the canary was the first boat bird I've seen since the east coast when I met a parrot that lived aboard a sailboat with a couple of yappy dogs.

The dogs would bark like lunatics.
The owner would shout "Shut up"
(the dogs would stop barking)
THEN the damn parrot would start barking, interspersing same with a decent imitation of the owner's "Shut up"

I was glad I'd anchored upwind of that fiasco!

Although ours (the 40'er) had a fly bridge (the lower helm station was removed a few years after the fly bridge was added) ... we'd changed out the interior though prior to that. A lot of changes occur when you build/own a boat for 49 years!

OK, Art. Searched the archives and I could only find one "wannabe" Tolly. Here it is. The trouble with Tollycraft's are that this is about the only thing you can do to improve the looks of the boat!

Thanks, Larry!

Humm - not too bad. I still like her orig designed "beauty". Also, much dashboard space is gone gone.

Linda just viewed and mentioned that instead of pulling window bottom back... to leave that where it was and to simply push window tops somewhat forward from its orig angle... but not so much that windows are straight up, leaving them still sloping backward at least a bit.

Indeed. What make? Reminds me a lot of my Prairie, but not as plump and stubby.

Eric, Spy is pretty close to right. I have seen them a couple of times. One time I was passing them on the Okeechobee Waterway. The wood looks like it is treated with a creosote like material. They do appear to be black.

Yeah, and the black hull doesn't hurt it either.

Art, and anyone else who loves their boat as he, has got to be happy! (And I continue to wonder when we'll cross wakes.)

Could be. It would depend on the year built. The Sabreline name was dropped as a distinguishing feature from the sail boats in favor of just Sabre Motor Yachts. I don't remember the exact date, but I think around '02 or '03.
