I was wondering where she went. I haven't seen her on the 100 largest list in a few years. They don't include state owned vessels, so that makes sense. She sure is a grand old lady! Very pretty.

West,
Looks like a Monster Willard Voyager.

dhmeissner,
Some William Garden designs (like the one you posted) just take your breath away. And this one's a good example of how nice a boat looks w/o a FB.

Orion has become somewhat of a Harbour Queen, although I have seen her advertised for charter.

The Hardy range of boats is based on the famous English Nelson S/D designs.
This pretty 32' model is a new design from 1998 with twin 250hp...

Absence of flying bridge enhances the boat's appearance.

Actually, Mark

Flying bridges are not put on boats to enhance their appearance... although on many they look quite nice.

Flying bridges are put on boats to enhance the scenery-view-ability, increased general enjoyment, added usable boat space, and ease of navigating into tight spaces with 360 degree visibility.

For those with vertigo or equilibrium challenges they might not be too attractive for any reason!

Describes me. Besides, I prefer the wind/solar/temperature/precipitation protection of a pilothouse with 360-degree visibility.

It's weird, but some designs just 'work' and look right.

The hardy and Sabre/ Back cove style boats have that sense of classical proportion even though they're modern designs.

To European eyes the lobster boats seem to be slightly out of proportion; but gain extra points because of their historical traditions and workboat heritage.

It's all seems to be a bit of a 'mix and match ' lottery.

Tad, I wonder where he got the butter box to fit on top of a perfectly good hull.

Here's a closer look at the Willard mentioned by TAD.
The house is a little large for the hull Ben but I don't see any butter box.
Not sure but I think this boat just sold.
West, What is at the "Steveston Heritage Boatyard"?

I'm surprised you haven't been there yet. Pretty much a "must see" for every mariner within range.

Eric-- Steveston is a remarkable place. We have not been to the shipyard but the fish market from the sterns of the moored fishing boats is a trip. Steveston apparently has the largest fishing fleet in BC, and the daily fish market is worth the drive up there. You can buy everything from live crabs, shrimp and prawns to fresh salmon, halibut--- the list goes on.

They have a very interesting cannery museum that shows what life was like in the multitude of canneries that dotted the BC coast in the early 1900s.

Not far away is the Britannia Heritage Shipyard (what West's photo is of) which shows what shipbuilding was like along the coast. We've not been to this yet, but here's a photo I snagged off the web. It was taken during a BC Forestry vessel rendezvous in 2011.

I don't know if the cannery museum and shipyard are open in the winter. But I believe the fish market is a year-round deal.

Well worth visiting--- we plan to go up again in the near future.

Here's the website for the shipyard. Britannia Heritage Shipyard

PS Answered my own question: the shipyard is open during the winter on weekends, noon to five pm.
