RE: The scale of our boats!

My 16' Whaler holds a special place in my heart.* It got us to where we wanted to be.* I sold it to my uncle for $1000 (one boat unit) so it would have a good home and a good owner.* He loves it to this day.

RE: The scale of our boats!

Here is a good photo to indicate to an owner in Japan, the scale of many, many things after the Tsunami, including his boat. *I didn't Photoshop it. *It was in an e-mail ad from my insurance company asking if I had enough coverage.

The scale of our boats!

My boat was out of the water when I bought her. It is amazing how much it shrunk after putting it in the water

RE: The scale of our boats!

Here's a cute thing... When we were returning from Carolina Beach 2 years ago we stopped at our favorite hole - The Morehead City Yacht Basin. While there, we docked behind a South African flagged vessel named 'Grits' (we couldn't figure it out either, but look close, that's its name). Bess clicked off this picture from across the basin and we have since called this shot 'Shrimp And Grits'.Pretty clear scale comparison here. Ever since, I am far more humble about the size of our little Skinny Dippin'. :-D

After finding the true trawler too restrictive:

Between the two, we covered over 50,000 miles and used over 100 different ramps in this:

34 to 36 foot Tri Cabins are the biggest LITTLE boats I know.* Great for weekend, week, or multi week/a-month of*cruisen and hooken!* TCs keep momma happy and therefore me too!* IMHO it is always great fun (and gunkholen ability as well as area visitation capability)*to have a*(relatively small, comfortable,*and quick)*o/b runabout tow behind.* Heres a couple picts of our current toys...

RE: The scale of our boats!

We started out with a 19 ft run about and thought that was a big boat and did not feel comfortable about taking it out.* Then we bought the 28 ft and I thought that was a really big boat, and did not feel comfortable about taking it out but then the 19 ft did not feel that big.* Then we bought the 58 ft boat and that was really really a big big*boat and I don't feel comfortable about taking it out, but the 28 ft was no that big of a deal.
*

So I guess to make the 58 ft no big deal to take out, I will have to buy a 80+ ft!*Its all relative to what you are use to.

RE: The scale of our boats!

Not as big and bulky as some, but after 13+ years I would not want a boat one inch larger than this one if I was going to maintain it myself.* If we decide to get a larger boat, all maintenance-- engine, brightwork, plumbing, everything--- will be hired out.* Thirty-six feet is our absolute limit for DIY work on a boat.

It took us 22 years to come to that realization.

Close to 40' of masochism (but it was ofttimes fun, and definitely satisfying at the spring splash).
