RE: Photo Gallery - All Members Boats

Hey Skip,
I thought da boat was 38' or so. After seeing the pics it still looks like 38. Love the soft and fuzzy wheelhouse**** ...and the knot** ty decoor. What's your displacement*** ..10-12 tons? Engine? You've done some nice things inside Skip. Looks like it would be cozzy in the winter. Thanks for the pics*** ..I've been wondering about your boat for a long.

Sure.* It's unimportant your boat looks more trawler-like than many here.* "Trawler life" on this forum is a frame of mind.

Trawlerguy,
I take it your boat was built on Gwynn's Island? Haven't seen one like her in these parts (Deltaville). She's a beauty tell us more about her.

Thanks Eric,
One Of the problems I have had with a one off boat. Not another one like her. I have no idea about displacement. And no way to find out short of weighing her. There is no way to do that where the boat is. She has a cat 3208 n.a. 210 hp 24x18 rh prop.

I think she was none to stable when she was built. As bilge keels were added as well as the para vanes. She is a little rocky tippy but with the stabilizers out she sure can take some rough water. Got caught in some bad weather off Hinchinbrook in the Gulf of Alaska.**Quite a bit of green water over the wheel house.

The rope work came from a free coil of 3/4 manila. sort of like a chittychittybangbang.
approach to putting her together.*What ever I can find.*I have used a lot of stuff most people don't put on boats.*Hey it works for me. Best part is she is all paid for and works great.

All the wood trim is from a nice birch out of a friends back yard. Milled it with a chain saw and a table saw. I used indoor outdoor carpet for the*bulkheads *and overhead
Once again I got a smokin deal on the carpet so I made use of it. All the fiberglass work I have done myself.

Sorry I'll get off now. You know how it is talking about your boat.

She is an old boat that nothing work's on her but me.*

That is a sweetheart of a boat Killick. *Nicely done, following the same shape as the flybridge on the mods. *Impressive. *Sure would love to see the layout of that pilothouse now.

Thanks!* The PO did the addition of the pilot house, and I agree that the lines work about as well as could be expected. Last winter I gutted the interior of the PH, so I just happen to have a couple of pics of the new interior - still waiting to complete the new carpeting, but you get the idea.*

Killick,Boat has nice lines and I love that wood seat w the blue thing over it. I should build one for my living room * * ...in my house. Beams and planks in the overhead of a wood boat can't be beat. Looks like you have a boathouse.

And those forward raked screens on the pilot house look soooo right, even moreso contrasting with the rear-raked ones below.

Yes - Killick is in a house.* Projects are much easier as I've got a full workshop on the mezzanine.* So you noticed the Futon.....was supposed to be just a temporary solution for last summer as I didn't have time to build in the new settee.* Turned out to be a real hit with everyone, and it makes a very comfortable extra double bunk - so it might be a permanent thing.* It is teak...so it at least has that going for it.*

To Daddyo* -* a Killick is a leading seaman in the Royal Navy (a kellet/killick anchor is their insignia).* I co-own the boat with a retired Naval Aviator - he figured that the Killicks had the best job on ship.

What can I say but "Sumptuous". *I have been playing with a pilothouse alteration on my own boat to extend things here and there, and seeing yours just adds fuel to the fire. *Fantastic boat.

Thanks - Killick is a head-turner.....to me anyway.* There is a segment of the boating community (the wooden boat purists) who put down the mods, however, when it's pouring rain/cold - I can steer in comfort from my heated ph with a fabulous plan view of the way ahead!*

Good luck with your project!* Heck I'm just a girl....but I gutted the ph and put it back together again and everything still worked .* The winter before, I took off most of the upper deck and replaced it. * Just go for it!* Nice boat BTW - I've always liked the layout of the Manatee. **
