Hiya,
** dw, very nice shots.* GREAT shot of the Albin.* I've always admired the bow flair on these vessels.

Those Pictures wouldn't have been taken near Seal Harbor Maine, would they?

Taken in Buck's Harbor, ME (East Penobscot Bay). Seal Harbor is on Mt. Desert, about 20 NM +/- to the eastward. The green wooden boat is a Penbo "houseboat" trawler. The black lobster yacht with the lifering and bright finished house is a Stanley 39 (38? 37?) built on Mt. Desert. The green Northern Marine trawler "Spirit of Zopilote" needs no introduction. And, of course, there is an ubiquitous Hinckley as well as the other IG32 resident in the harbor and a recently built "one-off" wooden lobster yacht.

I just returned from that area...Sorrento and Frenchmans bay.* Beautiful, I can't wait to go back and stay the summer on a boat.

RE: Local color

Is that boat in the 6th picture a Penbo Trawler? WoodenBoat did an article on them a few years back and I've always admired them.

Love old boats.* Really do.* Especially ones from the 20s and 30s.* However, that 1929 CC is pretty ugly.* Don't get me wrong, and I don't want to be banned from this forum, but that vessel looks like it originally had two architects and they had a disagreement!

My two cents.* Always remember, I have thick skin...* So let me have it!

Ray

P.S.* Sorry to keep editing this turd.* Notice the similarity between the two.* The other boat is a 43-foot Stephens trunk cabin built in Petaluma, California in 1930.

RE: Local color

I remember reading Zopilote was lost on a reef or rock some years ago, I hadn't seen a pic of the Spirit of Zopilote looks real nice!
By the way Zopilote means Vulture in Spanish kinda strange name for a boat.

There is a certain beauty in pure function..** clearly this vessel was not built with the forward pilothouse, but for reasons we can only imagine (safety.. abilty to navigate in fog.. who knows?) someone* created a boat to meet his particular needs.* Do we not all aspire to that?*

RE: Local color

The forward pilothouse was someones attempt later on to enclose the forward open helm station, this boat being a NYC commuter was operated by a captain, this as per the current owner

Here is some "local color" from our neck of the woods.* I'm a huge fan of Willard boats, and this one is really something.

I like Willards so much that I have one.Since we're on style right now * .....
See how this W40 PH and almost all Willards have lots of freeboard. The odd looking excess of freeboard is greatly softened by the two horizontal grey stripes on the side of the hull. In this case the PH could use one too (I think).Notice also the inclusion of round ports and rectangular ports or windows used on the same boat and even side by side. I consider this bad design/taste unless the two different ports are far removed from one another as in round ports fwd and on the hull topsides thus isolated from the rectangular/square ports. This is (in my opinion) the most desirable of all Willards Usually powered by a Perkins 6-354 or a 120 Lehman. This much power in a full displacement boat makes it a bit over powered but these boats (W40) can be had for $150K. IF you can find one. They were made in the US and are not free of blisters.
Here is my own Willard 30 as I bought her and 3 weeks ago.

RE: Local color

Eric,
Love your boat. I have always been a huge fan of Willard boats, however, the Vega model is the only other one I've seen in my area, been one for sale up in SF Bay for sometime. This was the first "big" Willard I'd seen, and its moored just across the slip from me, so I get to admire it every time we are at our boat. It is clean as a whistle, totally bristol as they say. The grey stripe at the top of the null is raised a 1/4 inch or so, so on closeup examination its really quite stunning. Someone in our marina mentioned its originally from New Zealand, although hailing port on the vessel says Moss Landing, CA. I'd love to get inside, keep waiting for the owner to show up, but so far haven't seen him/her.
