"Boat house kept" is a huge reason that boat is in such great shape. Actually two boat houses according to the listing. That and relentless attention to detail, scuffs and scratches repaired quickly and competently. I admire several fine wood boats local to me but question if my attention to detail would keep one in that condition. Robust construction helps too.
Mark pours that same kind of devotion and attention to detail into his beloved steel Carquinez Coot and it shows. Steel and wood boats share that much in common in that they are beautiful but require the paint be maintained religiously by their owners if they are to last.

That's one of the things I love about her is the way the Forfjord anchor fits on the stem of the bow. Looks like they made the angle of the flukes to match. Classy. That's one thing a Forfjord is good for .... fitting on bows. This pic is of a friend's 30 Willard in Alaska w a 65lb Forfjord tailored to the bow. Notice that even though Ed is not shy of putting weight on his bow there's very little chain. Like my rode .. mostly 5/8ths nylon line.
But the really amazing and super classy feature is her frames or ribs just above the main deck. Never seen a more beautiful detail feature of a boat. Super smooth fillets radiused perfectly between the frames and the inside of the topsides... never seen that before.
But a little negativity for balance is that those hawse hole cleats looks like an old log fell on board and they spent a lot of time varnishing it up. Cute but not pretty at all. Sharp contrast to the smooth and beautiful breasthook on the bow.
