I don't have or know much about the Jarvis Newman, other than to appreciate the lines. DD is also not in my knowledge base, but I do own a 36' Spencer Lincoln designed lobster boat which we cruise here in NW Washington. So, if you want to talk lobster boats, I'm in.*

I really like the workboat look of your vessel. She's sweet!!!

RE: Jarvis Newman

Quite a few Newman's around here, both pleasure and working. Here's a pic of my favorite in our harbor.

Jarvis is still in business although with a new partner and new location (still in Mt. Desert area):http://newmanandgrayboatyard.com/ngbhist.html

If you have questions about your boat, give him a call.

There is also a Newman Yacht brokerage in the area. Don't know if Jarvis is involved with it although I think he was at one time.

Carey, Spencer Lincoln designs nice boats. I wish I could afford one like the Zimmerman 38. He's a wacky local character around here. Last time I saw him on the water he was driving a chartreuse 1950's runabout speedboat with tailfins in a reckless way right at us. (I dated his girlfriend briefly between my marriages).

Love the downeast boats and the way the lobster hulls run.* Carey's boat is a really nice example.* The big 8V92 is* great engine.* They were designed mainly for work situations----not pleasure.* There is nothing like the sound of that roots blower when it cranks up.* Tell us more, and please put up some pictures of your boat.

BTW, for anyone interested in a downeast boat, a good friend of mine has his 37' Duffy on the market.* His boat has been babied with the best of care.*

That's the way I understood it. Lobster boat builders, designers, finishers are all unique to Lobster Boats. No other design that I know of, offers the customer the ability to choose the hull and house, choose the power setup, then choose who will do the finish, and in a totally custom layout. If money and time were not an object, I would commission a 42' Lobster Boat with nearly the same layout I have on my 36'.*

If I had the time and ability, I'd just buy the bare hull and finish to my likings. That's how my boat came about. PO, was a cabinet maker, and had the hull/house with engine and transmission shipped across the country for him to finish.

RE: Jarvis Newman

Looks like fun , BUT the chance of efficient displacement cruising is ZERO.

IF 1 nm per gallon ( or hald that) fits with your cruising style , go for it.

******* My 54' sport fisher had two 8V92"s (760hp each) and ran beautifully. I agree, they** are great engines.

I don't know what DDs were designed FOR** ..but it seemed most diesel powered pleasure boats in the 50s were powered by Detroit Diesels. I've heard much talk about how DDs were great oil leakers. How does that happen? I looked in my 1953 Motor Boating magazine for DD ads and found none. Many engine ads for other makes. Saw many boats in the mag w DD power though. We've been in Ketchikan for 2 days and I bought 2 cans of Dolfinite. And there it was in the 1953 Motor Boating Magazine.

RE: Jarvis Newman

Thank you for the welcome! She is a 46' and was built in 1979. Originally she was a research vessel for Woods Hole. I bought her in 2005 and put in electric, water, living quarters, and made her very comfortable and simple. I have been living on her since. She has 305 HP and cruises at 10 knots @ 1650 RPM. Her burn rate is 4 GPH. I picked her up there and brought her to Florida. I love to fish so lots of cockpit space is important.

RE: Jarvis Newman

She is a beauty,J-N are excellent sea boats and are also a joy to behold. My late father considered the JN 46' to be the perfect boat,sadly he never got to own one.

Happy boating.

"I've heard much talk about how DDs were great oil leakers. How does that happen?"

Poor mechanics . lack of PM , and such a long service life that finally the seals go.

""She has 305 HP and cruises at 10 knots @ 1650 RPM. Her burn rate is 4 GP"

Gph on a lightly loaded DD is seldom even 15 hp per gallon.

That is a fine boat to run well over hull speed on 60 HP!!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hello- could you expand on what u are saying here. (15 hp per gallon) I am interested in the HP vs speed.

My max rpm is 2350- she gets there-but I never run more than 1700. I know that someone installed a turbo in their J-N*that brought up HP to 725!!! This hull went 23 knots. I don't want that but am trying to plan for a repower in years ahead. I enjoy the 10 knots , but would love to lower the engine weight if I repower.

I have been trying to put up more pics - they won't complete the upload, just keeps going for 15 minutes round and round.

RE: Jarvis Newman

David
Thank you for that lesson. I fully followed your explanation. I probably use a little more when fishing because moving around, etc. When I bought boat down I kept tanks full and ran continuous for about 12 hours a day offshore then in to a marina. I fueled up nightly and I used about 50 gallons daily. Sometimes a little more. Interesting that when I run in water less than 10 feet my speed is exactly the same as the depth. For example if I am in 7' I go 7 knots and when the water increases to 10 again my speed increases back to 10. I feel the boat rise and then settle back to normal angle. I know it is the pressure back push off the bottom from the hull. Anyway just a thanks again.
