Excellent indeed.

On a smaller scale I am also converting a Commercial Fishing boat.
Tough boats made for a life at sea.

Please. Keep us posted.

Thanks and I will keep you all posted on her progress but as I said I am taking it very slow.
Although I am filling in most of the back deck the wheelhouse shape is going to remain the same so I hope she doesn't lose too much of her charm.

SD, I see you have a set of stabilisers on your boat, are you happy with them and do they make much of a difference when anchored? I am getting a set built at the moment. The Nenad is designed to carry 50t of fish and without that weight she rides high and rolls a bit, I have got about 12t of sea water in the back tanks, 4t of lead in the keel and about to add another 4t of fresh water to the already 1.3t so I am hoping this should solve the problem.

I have been fighting with the same issue. My boat is a little rocky and tippy She was built with a 10,000 lb fish hold.
Meant to be either hauling fish or ice.
The previous owner or perhaps even the builder added bilge keels and the*paravane Stabilizer.
The para vanes are really a have to have for a more comfortable ride.
Even just putting one out. As when you are anchored up fishing sure quiets the roll.

RE: Photo Gallery - All Members Boats

very impressed with all the photos.
the PNW is beautiful, makes me want to take the boat there...

presenting our boat "Freedom".
38' LRC Californian built in 1982 at the Californian shipbuilder in Huntington Beach, CA.
Equipped with twin Cats 3208 diesels producing 260 hp (at 2800 rpm)
It was the first boat we looked at, it was a "repo" sale.
I haggled so much with the broker they actually asked me to leave at some point.

She is really nothing special but she has qualities we like:
the pilothouse/settee/galley is all together (like a family room) with 6'5" headroom.
two decent size staterooms (again long enough to accommodate 6'5")
good size aft deck for fishing and just kicking back (our fav spot to hang out)
walk around decks (family friendly).

the boat has been up and down the westcoast, it has lived in the PNW, SFO, Ventura and now back in So Cali.


1. Getting bottom paint, new zincs etc etc.

2. Engine room view (taken at time of pre-buy).

3. Moored at The Isthmus (Twin harbor), Catalina Is.

4. Running boat from my fav spot.

5. Pilothouse helm.

sorry, i dont have a lot of interior photos.

Good looking boat there Skipper.

That is one fine stowed away engine room you have there.

Per, she's a beautiful boat for sure. *And Catalina.....well, you've picked my favorite boating area too. *Camping at the Isthmus, diving all around Catalina, visiting the Casino....all great memories.

Congrats on a great purchase, and as SD said, you'll appreciate the ER space when you do maintenance.

RE: Photo Gallery - All Members Boats

thanks Coyote, Catalina is so close to us and we visited many times before we started boating, also camping etc.
it is to me still the greatest secret around LA, but dont tell anyone it will just get overcrowded.
i am now getting in position to take an open water course so i can experience diving as well.

PG: yes they are shiny, but actually since the purchase i had the engines and fuel tanks completely re-painted including removal of any rust.
we also recently had the exterior wood re-done. sanded to the wood and varnished 8 layers. Now it looks great.
i am trying to figure out what to do with the FB, currently the bimini could use some tlc but i am wondering if it could be nice to remove the bimini alltogether. i notice you are "topless", how do you like it?

those photos are very impressive, especially the glacier shot.

regarding Erics remark on the winch, i never realized that it could be used for anything other than pulling up the old anchor.. good stuff.

RE: Photo Gallery - All Members Boats

So here is my new to me, retirement gift. Actually, I hope this will become me and the Admiral's floating condo. Cruising plans are great loop, Lake Superior for a couple months, and infinite time exploring the eastern and gulf coasts. Only problem is that the retirement lasted 4 weeks, before I was back doing a consulting gig. A year and a half later, I'm still working. Time is a valuable thing. The boat, it is a 1982 Californian 34 LRC with 200 Perkins turbo's. I was looking for a single engine, but everything involves compromises, unless money is limitless, mine isn't. I think I gave up some economy. But I didn't get a teak deck removal project, leaky windows, or chalky gel coat, or boat payments.. The original engine hours are 1500. The genny's got 500. Overall, I think it is in very good condition for its age. In spite, my list of projects is getting longer. As I get to them, I will post. I am fairly capable of boat fixing and system engineering, but I have no salt water experience. This is not my first boat it is actually the 17th. Current fleet numbers 8. Yes, I got the sickness. The boat is in Nashville, I'm in Iowa at mile 493. Upper Miss River. I plan the first leg of the trip home in a week. to take it from Nashville to Kentucky Lake (about 200 mi.). It will need to stay there for a few months until the Miss thaws out and the threat of flooding has past. The Mississippi is not a good place when it floods. I don't have many boat pictures, but this what I have. I will post more after I have a chance to take them.

I'm with Moonstruck on the hull color but only if you have a deionized water bottle
at your slip. (It makes keeping the water spots off the hull incredibly easy!) After cruising, just rinse with deionized water and go home! No wiping needed.

Craig, she is a keeper for sure. The blue hull is very classy looking. And i like the topless look!
10mph cruise at 2 mpg is decent also.
My californian is much the same but 38' instead and 28,000 displacement (really dont understand how 4' of hull = 12000 lbs but i guess it is based on full fuel/water but even so that would only be another 1000lbs (400 gal fuel/100 gal water)).
