You must get the odd sunny day there, surely....?
This is the only picture I can find with no clouds. We do not have very many days with out some clouds.

This is what works for us. Less than 1 gallon an hour if we go slow and haven't sailed her yet. 62 hp Yanmar diesel.

Kind of new to this posting. Hope I got it right this time.

Here's a profile shot of Phil's Eagle that I Photoshoped onto another background. I think the original was actually on the dirt. Phil always calls the boat ugly, but being the owner of an ugly boat myself, I have to say that I like the Eagle just the way it is. This shot shows a little more detail. Can't speak for what looks like a radar unit mounted on a moose head on the pilothouse.

Gee, that picture must be before 1999 as the windows where changed to bronze and the stern canvas more clear space. The picture was of the Eagle on the hard. I did not like that radar arch when we bought her, but over the years I have grown to like it. It leans forward which was to protect the old round radar dome, and to give more space on the roof as the previous owner cared store a live raft/boat up there. Its sort of like ugly wantabee forward slanting windows, you sort of get use to them. OK maybe not.


The 58 originally had a front mast, the mast step, wiring and stanchion connections are still there, so adding a from mast would not be to difficult but the cost is about 15 grand. 15 grand can buy about 4,000 gallons of fuel. The only reason I would add is to increase the range.

I dunno, Phil. Are you sure that's not a moose head? Regardless, what was the deal with doing the windows in bronze? I understand the wood might have been gone, but bronze? How come? Are you talking about the port holes?

The glass is bronze! The trim is still varnished teak wood. When repairing the dry rot under the windows I cracked several of them. At the time we are moored at a semi open dock to the public so we had people looking into the windows, and a couple of times a year the sun would break through the clouds and blind us. What is the big round bright object in the ski? True native PNW are not fond of directly sun light. If the truth be told we are wantabe Vampires. You been watching “Twilight”?

Well anyway, the radar mount still looks like a moose head to me. I thought I'd seen one of those at a Spokane boat show....oh yeah, here it is.
