Punta Gorda Trawler

Saw an interesting trawler in Punta Gorda today. It's called a Dutch Sturdy 320. I'd never seen one before. Neat looking boat.

Here is the pointy end. Note the rub rail.

Interesting design.
Note the stockless anchor.
More interesting is the keel under the bow. Short WLL so they gave the keel some "purchase".
I don't care for those cutsy rub rail. The best rail I've ever seen is the blue ones on the Albin 25. Never seen one damaged.
Multi chine ... must be steel.

Eric, I thought it was steel as well but when I thumped on it, it sounded and felt like glass.

I think I'd call the rub rail traditional rather than cutesy, but point taken about durability.
I was fascinated by how it was attached. I've never seen that before.

Sorry Parks but I was getting cross eyed.

That is a fascinating attachment method.

I believe long time ago member Marge of Fairhope Al. had a Dutch made trawler, a Linssen Grand Sturdy 350. A nice looking boat too http://www.cantal-marine.si/en/model...rdy-350-ac-11/

A nice looking, steel-hulled boat, no doubt very well built. But, the interior is pretty Spartan. I'm thinking it would appeal to very few First Mates.

"I think I'd call the rub rail traditional rather than cutesy, but point taken about durability."

The Euros realize if the boat cruises the rub rail will get lots of wear.

Rather than bolting and unbolting , and worrying about water tightness,
the use of a heavy line laid in a channel , tightened with a turnbuckle is very practical.

In the USA mostly Loopers see 100+ locks , in most euro rivers locks abound.

So when I buy a boat you guys wouldn't think old tires would look good for fenders?

Maybe on a tug conversion.

Thanks Fred, great explanation.

When I saw the turnbuckle I thought that it was very clever. Makes it very easy to change the rub rail. It just occurred to me that when the outside of the rope gets scruffy looking, you can just turn it over and use the other side. Those Dutch guys aren't as dumb as wooden shoes would have you believe.

I've gotten to where I don't try to look at the sideways photos, knowing they will soon be handled by someone able to right them.

Thanks, my neck was torquing out. Maybe it's me and the fireball whiskey, but that boat has kind of a pirateey look to it.
