Anchor pulpit pictured on that "One Off" should be on never ending thread:

Chesapeake Anchor Holding Power Test

I don't notice interior picts that amount to much on the One Off.

The first thing that popped into my head was that it looked like a small barge.

Dutch Barge long distance cruisers - Page 20 - Boat Design Forums

A couple of items on that listing that caught my attention:
1) The description appears to be written as though the owner (or whoever) was intending to build these vessels?
2) It says a fiberglass hull, but the bilge areas make it look to be some sort of epoxy saturated wood construction??

PS: found the "Hiding under the chair" icon, no Popcorn icon.

Great Republic

Yesterday, I had the amazing opportunity to watch the Great Lakes freighter, Great Republic, enter the Manistee inlet and head up the Manistee River to a dockage site on Lake Manistee. It had to pass thru 2 bridges on the way. This boat is 635 feet long and 68 feet wide. To put things in perspective the Manistee River is like a deeper version of the Great Ditch down around south Florida with several gentle bends. The smaller bridge, the Maple St bridge is about 125' wide but the kicker is there is a bend right after the bridge. Well, she made it through flawlessly but it was a sight to behold. I looked the boat up on the web and found she has eight rudders, both bow and stern thrusters, twin diesel engines (producing 7,200 b.h.p.) driving the two variable pitch propellers housed in strengthened Kort Nozzles. She is considered to be the most nimble and maneuverable ship in the world.

Great Republic, American Republic, MMSI 368183000, IMO 7914236

We now return to our regularly scheduled anchor debate.

Hello everyone. I am a new member to the forum and this is one of my first posts. As you can see, I don't have a boat yet, but I'm still working that. Being a NUB, I apologize if this the wrong place to ask this question, but has anyone heard of Beckmann trawlers? I've tried to research them online without much success. Any information would be helpful. Thanks in advance.
