This is kind of cool....

....in a Diesel Duck knockoff kind of way. John Deere engine. Pretty robust looking, but probably too utilitarian looking inside for most Admirals.

Too high I think and a looooong way away from most, but interesting nevertheless.

Very "ship like" and sturdy looking, but I agree that the interior might be a bit too utilitarian for many Admirals (what's with the two 'poles' on either side of the master berth? Are they really holding up the forward deck??).

Those grab rails are for the captain to hold as the admiral tries to throw him overboard the first time she tries to put a sheet on that bed in the master stateroom.

I was thinking dual stripper poles. Wishful thinking actually...

Greetings,
Mr. E. "Are they really holding up the forward deck??)." Hmmm....could be for the stirrups or the trapeze. It IS in Canada after all.

What a great idea! I'm going to discuss that with the admiral...save a grab rail for me.

I like it but with that many fuel tanks, I think keeping track and keeping the boat trimmed right may be a little difficult. I don't think the interior is spartan at all.,simplistic and useful no frills.

Pretty spiffy! One thing for sure is you won't be needing a day tank. Nice engine space.

The interior looks like it was designed by Home Depot's cheap cabinet department.
The poles on both sides of the master berth are quite utilitarian - use your imagination

Why do these guys always try to rehabilitate old fishing boats. My mistake, the line holders brought it to a different class.

Ok I know we're supposed to be nice but.......
