That looks to be a Crosby tug. A number were made and finished in different ways.

This is an example from BC on Yachtworld 1979 CROSBY YACHTS Tug Power Boat For Sale - www.yachtworld.com:

I looked at that little tug a lot when it was for sale . It has a built in beer tap also with keg storage. I think it was in NC a couple years ago when for sale .

Interesting... I didn't remember NC but now that you mention it I recall he said he went south to look at it and had it shipped north. I didn't get a tour but we did have a few cold ones together.

I could be wrong, but I think the C is attached to a piling behind the boat.

So... C-dock.

The photo might---- might--- have been taken at Genoa Bay. But regardless, the C is the dock designation and is fastened to a piling or pole. The photographer just didn't notice how he was lining things up.

This kind of dock lettering is very common in this area. For whatever reason, most docks out here are lettered, not numbered. The slips themselves are usually numbered if they have any designation at all.

This boat may have already been posted but I find it very interesting to say the least. I mean this guys got it covered in all ways.
1. Helicopter by air
2. Larger boat (tender) by water
3. V.W golf for land.

The picture does not show it but in the pdf I have it shows the VW sitting under the platform that the boat is sitting on. Here is a quote from the page I got my second picture from.
(((Notice the helicopter on the back deck! We talked to the owner and he told us that he had the boat built in New Zealand took 3 years and he had to buy the company when it went broke in the process of building his boat. Who has that kind of money!?!? )))))

I can answer that question......they guy who can put a helicopter and boat and car on his trawler...thats who !!!
Sure glad there is not a druellllling

Now that is the coolest 26 footer I have seen in a long time. Now that would have made my night charters a little more interesting.

But if he got a LOT bigger boat he could hide them..

It sort of looks like the result of a redneck winning the lottery..

( No offense meant to the rednecks) oh what was I thinking.. a real redneck cannot read anyway.

Well, Bill Boeing for one. He bought the Ed Heath shipyard south of Seattle for $1 and the debt so he could get his first yacht, the Taconite, completed.

Later, when he and Conrad Westerveldt decided to build a pair of airplanes, they used the shipyard and the shipwrights to build them.

If you visit the Museum of Flight on Boeing Field, the so-called Red Barn that is part of the museum today is actually the shipyard building where the Taconite was built. The building used to say "Heath" on the side, and it was located several miles closer to Seattle on the Duwamish Waterway. The shipyard became Boeing's Plant 1. When Plant 1 was closed sometime in the 70s (I think) the Red Barn was donated to the Pacific Northwest Historical Aviation Society. They had it barged up the river and then rolled across to more or less where it sits now. That's where it was when I joined the company, a totally weathered, gray, swaybacked derelict.

That's Teddi Bear, they owned my boat going back 2 owners and are largely responsible for the re-building of it. Teddi Bear made the cover shot on PassageMaker magazine sometime in 2007 or 08. I have a copy at home but can't remember exactly when it was.
