Wow. Although, I can't say that I blame them for getting out of the Great Lakes. You sure want to be well south in case the gales of November come early.

We saw A in Bellingham Bay the other month. I very much like the look of it. With its reverse-raked stem it reminds me of a modern interpretation of a WWI battle cruiser.

$66,334.00 Canadian dollars for some of the steel. Not including shipping. Of course you would be better off buying the cutting files and having it cut locally. Then find a couple of welders and a helper, three months later you have a bare shell. That's when it really starts to cost big money.....Which is why most just buy a DD from China and go cruising.

Hey, I resemble that remark. Not to mention I couldn't have said it better myself!

Since when did logic enter the picture when admiring purdy boats

Give the choice, money, and time (none of which I have to spare) I'd rather have that boat, built by my own hands and modestly appointed, than any big name *Bling* boat. But, then again, I kicked logic off the bus when we bought Badger!

It's a good looking boat, I'll give you that. I'd like to be in the position of suffering over the choice of that one or the DD.

There is a steam powered launch called "ENA", which greatly resembles "The Florence" identified by jeffnick. Currently chartering in Melbourne, she was restored and operated as a private yacht by a group of wealthy Sydney businessmen, and was a joy to behold on the Harbor.

Who built this beauty? I saw her yesterday in Ft. Pierce. She has the lines of an early model Cheoy Lee (most which had rotted away by 1980) AND a Durbeck. Left me scratching my head- thought you trawler experts might know. She's beautiful and in Bristol condition for sure. Kudo's to her owner.
Look a rubrail- exactly where they are supposed to be!!
