GeorgS: I got to wondering about the style of that pilothouse-like building behind the boat. Looks like either might fit the other.

It is laying in Seattle at the Fisherman Terminal. I see it each time I am walking the floats. I believe there are two in the area. Like several military hulls viewed over time, they hold potential for conversions. Captain Gigs come to mind.

This may be of interest to people who appreciate VW vans and unusual things that float.

Larry, great job in Photoshop! The blue building with it's ship-like top is the regional traffic-control-center. Have you tried to mount it onto your Manatee digitally?

Ron, the VW van on the pontoon is a nice catch.

Some "real" or better "working" trawlers, captured in Denmark:



most trawlers here are set-up asymmetrically - starboard to work, port side sheltered
I think this one is a "woody" and just metal-plated.

Not a "trawler", some kind of a former island-support-vessel I assume:

Reminds me of the Benford-coasters. This one is/was located in southern Sweden.

And now for something rather strange or ugly:

Vehicle-carrier and a tug towing some windmill-foundations.

Oh, hell yeah! Now you're talking. I used to have one of those campers. That's how I learned how to drop and reinstall a VW engine on the fly in the driveway!

Yesterday I found a 55-60 or so motor yacht in a small marina in Stuart when visiting a friend with a KK 39. Later, I learned that the boat was a "Richardson". It was very odd, but the hardware and quality looked amazing. I couldn't find on on-line, but I did find this other example of an odd looking, oddly hulled Richardson.

That top house looks more Photoshopped than if you did photo shop it. She is MO'Fugly.

Speaking of ugly. This one has been sitting here in Victoria for the past couple of weeks. She's a Wally Yacht and somebody thought this was a good idea.Click image for larger version

The dude is probably compensating for 'some sort of shortcoming', if you know what I mean.

Yeah, I don't know if that is part of the original boat, but it looks to me like the whole upper deck was modified. Still, look at the sharp entry that flares out to full beam.

This thread has been going on so long I've probably posted these shots before. I saw this boat in Silva Bay, BC a year or so ago, and it intrigued me the moment I first saw it.

It would not make any sort of distance cruiser unless one really wanted to rough it. But it looks like it would be a ton of fun to poke around the islands in, do a little crabbing, shrimping and fishing, etc.

I have no idea what powers it, although I suspect it's probably a gas engine unless this is a current reproduction of an older style boat, in which case it could be a little diesel.

It's the anchor style on fore deck that counts!

Here is an unusual aluminum-hulled Union Jack 31, a design by Ken Hankinson for Glen-L. It is normally constructed of 10 ga. steel. The design was also built commercially in GRP as the "Eagle 32' by Asian Pacific. I really like this boat!
