RE: Miss OSB

Isn't a stern like that called a Tumble Home?

Yes, it is a tumblehome transom....absolutely gorgeous lines. That is one heck of a beautiful boat- wish there were some interior shots?

RE: Miss OSB

Tumblehome was originally used on sailing ships, to thwart enemy sailors or pirates from boarding your vessel - the ships gunnels would be much further apart, and if someone tried to jump - and missed - they would tumble home - winding up crushed between hulls or in the water between the ships.

Tumblehome is also used to reduce the upper weight of a vessel.

RE: Miss OSB

Miss OSB is stored one boat over from Moonstruck in the large indoor storage facility at Gasparilla Marina.* Moonstruck is 2nd boat to the right.* Miss OSB is a pretty boat that I feel like I paid for at least a part of.* We have bought many car loads of OSB.

Don-
Very cool connection! I imagine she is as pretty, perhaps even more pretty, in person than in pictures. The dingy davit looks a little out of place with all the exterior wood but what a great looking boat.

She sits on a custom trailer that costs more than many cruisers.* It is set up so that the overtheroad truck can back her in a very tight radius.* She is built with such a low profile because the owner has low bridges around his home in the North.

Pictures of the marina are making me homesick.* I was supposed to be cruising now, but things have held me in town for a few weeks.* Hopefully, a nice long cruise after this.

But Don, the weather up in Chatt is so wonderful right now!

I am starting to feel like spring will NEVER get here.

Miss OSB

One of those pictures of Miss OSB in the water*was made in front of Trawler Forum member's boat Reef Drifter owned by Bob and Arlene Paxton.**

RE: Miss OSB

Nicely reminiscent of the great commuter yachts of the 1920's-30's. Here is Aphrodite, a Purdy which was "restored" (everything is new except for a token leftover piece) by Brooklin (Maine) Boat Yard fairly recently (she burns about 165gph per engine at WOT). Also, Liberty, a modern reincarnation of a Purdy built by Hodgdon Yachts. And some of the Consolidated commuter yachts of that era, without the bustle transom, were similar in theme.

Absolutely gorgeous.* Looks like a New York Yacht Club pennant on the bow.

That is a really impressive boat.* Using OSB in this way just proves that you can make something beautiful from anything if your mind is determined.

When you stand off from it it looks like mahogany.* I'm not sure of the finish, but it looks like Bristol and many, many coats.* Beautifully finished boat.

Took this from a Web news release article re Aphprodite:

"Original power was a pair of 800 HP V12 Packards that moved the boat faster than its contract speed of' 38 MPH. These engines were replaced by 1350 HP Packards and there followed 1500 HP Packards when the government took the boat over in 1942. Supposedly, it did 60 MPH with those engines and it became the pace-setter for all PT boats built during World War II. Later engines included 275 HP Hall-Scotts, 275 HP GM diesels and lastly, 350 HP V8 Crusaders. A final all-out run just before the start of restoration reached 25 knots and caused an engine to blow!
"A pair of new Caterpillar C-18 diesels "painted black with plenty of chrome," each rated at 1001 HP, has now been installed for maximum reliability. A new variable speed reduction gear has also been installed so that at low engine RPM, the boat won't be doing eleven knots (theoretical speed at the normal operating [lowest] ratio of 1.03). The engines will be electronically controlled and the control units are being modified so that the original helm controls can still be used. Top speed is predicted to be an impressive 41 knots!"
Liberty seems to have Man V-12s but don't know the HP. Here's a* link to her builder's page on her with some interior pics: Liberty

Aphrodite was "restored" at a local yard owned by a friend and managed by another friend. The team leader on this boat and the electrician are also friends. I went over numerous times to look at her during the work. The bummer is that, when they took her out on sea trials several times after relaunching, I was told that I could come along. But each time they went I could not due to clients' needs. I have gotten to go out on some of the other boats they have built and restored, but nothing that stirred my juices like this one.
