Meat and taters boat! A 6 ft. draft might not be so good on the ICW, but over in OZ, maybe a no issue. Neat boat.

Good video. Informative, sensible, clear. Maribel is a nice platform for the demo.

By 'range' I believe you are referring to the 'induction cooktop' ?

You might find these other discussions of interest concerning inductive cooking. I'm surprised at some of the 'current draw' sited by some posters !!
Induction Cooktops

BTW, who is the manufacturer of your unit?

I'm over in Thailand at the moment and went looking thru a few stores. WOW, quite a selection of inductive cook-tops here, and many pretty reasonable price.

Does anyone have a good email address for this builder??

Can someone read this company's email address for me? Every time I try, I get this message that 'the default mail client is not properly installed',....whatever that means???

Is that because I'm not using outlook express or something like that? I want as little Microsoft crap on my computers as I can get away with, if that's the case. I don't use outlook as my mail client.

BTW, I've got some interesting Thai boating photos to post....will have to find the proper spot.

Building a steel 41 Diesel Duck in Turkey

Interesting steel boat building process in a pictorial presentation:
41-plus construction Page 1

Note mention of 'floating-longs system' on page 2 & 5

And how about his simple reasoning for steel boat construction,
Quote:
I make NO claims to being a metal worker however, that don't stop me from opinions, and, it seems to me with the "floating longs" and long plate way of building described in Random Thoughts at georgebuehler.co, little if any fill stuff is needed. The hull comes out "fair" and when painted with a flat or semi-gloss paint, looks great. The benefit is if you bang a dock hard you don't chip a 1/4" or bondo, and painting a "ding" is less hassle than a wood hull because there won't be anything beyond the paint surface. Compare that to fixing a "ding" in some Awlgriped or the like finish....

George's Troller Yacht Book makes a lot of sense in terms of design features that significantly reduce production costs. Love them Ducks!

There might be the rare pilgrim fan that think them cute or novel, but i'd guess that the cost of the novelty would make them flinch. True buyers of pilgrims are likely to be damn serious about their boats. The novelty, economy and practicality are all gravy.

Now if i can just allow my manatee to be who she is.
salty dog: Nice to sit back and listen to remarks on 1 of the two boats i'm considering retiring on the other being a manatee::d

Animal, I thought this other posting of yours was rather interesting, and rather along the same vein of vessel as the Pilgrim design....a Gatsby era boat.

Photo Examples of Owner's Vessels

(here are 2 postings I was going to make quite some time ago, but they got lost on my computer,...just found them)


I've been collecting as many photos as I can of both the exteriors and interiors of these Pilgrim vessels as I can find....from both their 'association' website, from archive locations, from current and past 'for sale' listings, etc.
Association:
http://pilgrim-trawlers.wikidot.com/

The purpose was to look at the whole variety of modifications and decorations made by the factory, and by the subsequent owners of individual vessels. It's an interesting study, but still with lots of gaps, as many owners have never really posted photos of their vessels on any public website, and/or the photos that have been posted are very limited in number/selection. (At the moment it appears as though a significant number of photos that were posted to a Yahoo group website have been lost)

Dave Forsman (owner of “Liberty”) has done a very admiral job of organizing the list and history of these vessels. Here is his master list:
http://pilgrim-trawlers.wikidot.com/fleet

Meantime here are a few of the photos for posting on this discussion....

Solid Color Hulls

Most of the vessels have retained the 'two tone effect' provided by the very wide stripe of a contrasting color down the bulwark of the vessel. I'm actually rather surprised that only a few have chosen solid colors, .....but then again it probably makes for a 'lower profile look.

Brian,

I have actually started a Wiki page documenting the differences in Pilgrims as a function of their build year.

This is a work in progress and will probably take me another month to finish it off. I have another 20 or so changes to document and that will probably grow as I put a little more thought into this project.

There is no direct link from the Pilgrim Wiki site yet as I wanted to wait until I had more or less finished it, but here is a back door to the page:

There has been a recent change in the laws here that are going to drastically affect 'visiting yachts', and particularly those built outside the country. So a 'home-grown' vessel just might escape those new provisions, and offer a moveable-liveaboard situation for some of those folks that come here with retirement ideas, but not firmly planted on ground that a foreigner can not own over 49% of.
