Of course, we all know what Marin and Eric really appreciate about trawlers.

Any thoughts or ideas are welcome. Need a guest berth in addition to a master. Like the idea of a get home engine/sail if possible. Need something fairly up to date mechanically-- don't want a project. Like a pilothouse with a berth up there.
Probably a bit too "project boat" for you, but I think this is a great deal. Offer $75K.

That's really cool looking, but wood scares me because I don't think I can keep up with the needed maintenance. Better stick to fiberglass or steel.

Plus, I forgot to mention the Bahamas is another destination. We chartered a shallow draft (2'10") Great Harbour a couple of years ago in the Abacos, and it was nice being able to not really worry too much. A 6'6" draft would be a different story I think.

I've thought of chartering a GH on the St. Johns River....just to check it out. Which Great Harbour did you charter? How did you like the boat?

Larry, how can you move all that weight around without changing the trim of the boat? Amazing. Just amazing.

Don: You can't see through the hull, otherwise you would see that I utilized cad software to re-engineer the bulkheads and machinery to balance the boat each time.

You know, whenever I do this it is with the understanding that the marine engineers and architects are probably having a good laugh at the fantasy of it all, but I still enjoy it.

It was the N37

Great Harbor Trawlers

The one with the flybridge.

We really liked it. Sipped fuel. Super shallow draft. Lots of room for 4. Walk in engine room was nice. Galley was like a house setup with full size fridge and glass top elec range. We had to stay at marinas every night due to the generator not working when we got there, so that kind of sucked, but they gave me a decent discount off the rate to cover the cost of the marinas.

Never got the boat in any gnarly water since we were not allowed out of the Abaco Sound as per our charter agreement so I don't know how it would handle any seas. Very flat stern, wide, and shallow draft so maybe not well.

They want around 300K for those boats used however, and that seems way high to me.

Have no particular preference of one version over another. ... Gee, that's a powerful-looking bow. ... Still, the boat needs a real mast (not a stump) for some auxiliary sails which would probably work best with the original (rear pilothouse) version.

Please get rid of the flybridge version. Makes the boat toylike. And think of the many thousands of dollars necessary to duplicate electronics and controls of the pilothouse!

Mark Recently you sent me photos of the "Hot Rudder Bum" (H.R.B.) which falls into this category of trawlers. I would think and you would agree, that boat surely falls into the discussion as a fine example of this model. If I could post the photos with out a lot of fuss and knowledge I would. Just a thought.

Don whenever I go see Willy I get to look at her.

Yea Marin I knew what you meant before hand but I felt like talk'in.

Yes the house on the old boat looks better further fwd but if we were in 12' seas head on I'd much rather be at the helm in the cabin all the way aft.

I didn't think of that, but it's true. A hulking, unapologetic mast would balance the boat quite a bit, especially with some hefty rigging.

Okay Mark, Here we go (Maybe) I think this boat answered the question regarding a mast for a steading sale or aux sail, plus a large number of pilothouse windows. The size of the pilot house would indicate that time spent there would be major and the accomidations below suitable for at the dock or on the hook. This is in my opinion, one of the finer examples of a good Southeast Alaska trawler.

Yep, That be her. I have sent this posting to a mutual boating acquaintance who has recently made acquaintance with the owner. I am asking for an introduction at some point, should the opportunity arise. As a older, more senior than I fellow said and it has been written, "If it looks right it is right". I think this trawler fits the bill.
Regards,
Al

By the way Mark, and not to change the thread subject, just an update to an earlier thread on ballast. As you, Eric, Martin among others, were involved. Just today I placed 750# of lead to the bilge. Brought the boat down 2.5 -three inches on the forward waterline. The boat feels more stable walking about so looking for a "Chunky Day" to see the effect. Now back to the subject at hand.
Regards,
Al

Greetings,
Looks like the thread is wearing thin. Happen to be looking at the cover of our tide book. The cover has a wood trawler such as the subject of this thread. It is passenger/freight boat out of Homer, Alaska quite a few hundered miles North of our Alaska town of Ketchikan. How it became a photo for our part of the world is another question. however, I have read of this boat and the history of its operation. You can see that is has a history and has served well. enjoy-
