Janice,

Is the Bungee Cord the auto pilot or door close holder? Asked as I used a bungee cord on my last boat. Straight course for a while. (Pee call?)
I agree with Murry- to many systems and complex expensive have to haves makes boating confusing for me. We too just cruise the coast line so while the larger boats are exciting to view and visit the size and complex confuse this old beach combing bum!!
Truly enjoy all the boats submitted and proudly so. Thanks for the thread good idea.

Janice, that first picture, was that at Specter Island? We were anchored there a while back and saw a boat similar. Thought it may have been you.

Actually the cleat and bungee were intended as the auto pilot. That was another of those things that work in Theory but not aboard Seaweed. It's my belief Seaweed is the first of these 23' Schucker's built. She is stable (rocks three times and then stops) however tracking is not a strong suit. Later models have keels whereas I have a skeg.



And my interior isn't quite like that but is close enough -- no door on the head and my shower is just forward of the wheel down below. The galley is switched too from the schematic.

I'd LOVE an autopilot -- not one of the fancy ones either. A simple compass course is just what I need. That's how I run Seaweed anyway. Those 2k-plus ones that steer to a specific GPS coordinate are way above my budget and needs.

And that picture Rogerh was taken after Apalachicola. I painted the stripe green there. You could have called on Channel 16 you know. My radio is always on... just saying.

Yesterday I was perusing a book we own of art by Gregory Kondos called A Touch of Blue. He's a famous local artist who paints scenes from the California Delta, Sacramento area and his native homeland, Greece. I opened the chapter on the Sacramento River and found this picture that looks very much like my boat with an added cockpit cover like the way they were delivered from the factory. It's entitled Sacramento River with White Boat 2000.

Boomarang back in her slip after a yard period. Oh, and my new cabin table, complete with boomerangs inlaid in the corners! Teak and holly cabin sole next, then I'll finally be finished. OK, it's never finished, but I'll take a break and go cruising for a while.

Larry, Your boat is small in a big way! I think it one of the nicest boats on the forum. I think it has such appeal because it looks like a boat.

Very nice, indeed, Lawrence!! The boat and table look fantastic. Love the inlay work. Did you do that yourself?

Larry, I've always admired "Boomarang as an excellent example of "big is not always better." She is a lovely trawler that anyone would be proud to own.

Sailor of Fortune, Thank you for the kind words. It is always nice when a respected peer appreciates your efforts.

FlyWright, I wish I had the skill to do that kind of work, but it was my boat carpenter who made it for me. Believe it or not, it was his Christmas gift to me in appreciation for the last three years work on my boat. I'm still speechless.

MurrayM, The table pedestal and base is made in Italy by Besnezone Marine Systems and is imported by Imtra. Superb quality yacht hardware.

And here is my boat carpenter, Linden Steyn of Linden's Marine Service in Santa Fe, Texas. It goes without saying he is a skilled craftsman. He's from South Africa and is funny as hell too. It makes it easier to hand him large sums of money.

Okay, here I go. No, I don't have a helm that looks like it belongs on a 767, no granite countertops, no washer/dryer, no recessed interior or underwater lighting, and no photos that look like they belong in Mega-YachtWorld. I simply wanted a salty looking and seaworthy, full displacement trawler under 30'. Here are some before and after photos of Sherpa--she's essentially a new boat. The "old" pre-restoration photos are from circa 2008 or so.

She has been through three extensive restorations 2009, 2014, and 2015 (last two under my ownership); Sherpa is now in "like new" condition or darn close to it. There has been lots and lots and lots of fiberglass work, awlgrip top and bottom, new bulkheads, new windows, interior work, electrical, new electronics, and the list goes on.

When it all boils down to what's important, it's about hull shape and not too much top side to compromise what the hull can do, and Sherpa has that going in spades!!!

We looked high and low for a Vashon Trawler, Bartender, Allweather, or Coaster 23 (our intention was to get a small/seaworthy/trailerable boat) but stumbled across Badger at a really good price.

Sherpa is really easy on the eyes

Rainha Jannota - Trawler from Sunny Hot Bahia

Here's my boat

I have been adjusting her in small cruises. I have also been working hard to finalize payments for the final financial commitments before I retire.
U know what? I would have done it all over again if I had to.

I can't begin to imagine the commitment & dedication it took to take on a project like "Rainha Jannota". My hat is off to you for completing a truly wonderful vessel.
