Quite right, Bruce. There is a reason that many passagemakers are not things of beauty but practicality. Self edit: Beat you to it mods. XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX.

as much as I love a fly bridge there's no way I would want one on a N 46

I'd have to concur with Bruce and Don on that.

Sails Rigged

They look cool with the sails rigged. Although this one has no fly bridge.

Sails and flying bridges don't usually go hand-in-hand.



Flying bridges interfere with sails, besides significantly increasing boat costs and unwanted windage.

Despite our high windage our boat doesn't move easily, I couple weeks ago we went for a quick canal ride, came back to dock with 30 kts of wind abeam and barley moved.

That's funny!... sail would interfere with the flybridge in my view ...
Or the view from my flybridge for that matter.
One of the reasons I got into trawlers is to get rid of sails!..
To each their own.

Yes! Still, my Coot's sails satisfy a remnant of my sailing needs as well as adding a fraction of a knot of speed and additional stability when wind is from the beam.

The smaller "main" sail added 0.2 knots: with the larger jib, the sails would have added 0.5 knots. That's not insignificant for a six-knot boat.

Having spent many hours in Tuna towers it really isnt a good spot to be, I would remove a lot of that clutter.

Yeah, I couldn't imagine all the clinking and clanging going on well underway. I've also spent many ours on tuna towers ain't that bad as long as you making some sort of headway.

. . . . . , but Mark, think how cool it would be to be up in a crows nest wearing your thong, and cruising around San Francisco Bay.

No thanks. Besides, the view from the foredeck is great.

Geeze, Don. Isn't it enough that Mark still climbs his mast and tans while standing on the radar?

Talking of going up the mast. A friend was navigator on an 80ft maxi in the recent Sydney-Hobart race. In 45-50 knots and rough seas, a crew member had to go up the mast to disconnect the mainsail and attach the storm tri-sail. That`s heroic.
(Owner deserves a blast, vital to have a working system, it is compulsory to have, and show you have, an orange colored storm jib and tri-sail onboard).

The N46 is my favorite boat and I revel in the fact that my little Willard 30 is remarkably like it. This one was in Craig Alaska when I shot it.

Wow, I love this pic! I like that, nice and clean no paravanes or crow's nests.
