See you next year?

I'll be spending most of my time centered around the Carquinez Strait (northeast of San Francisco) starting next year.* Give me a toot!

The boat (Carquinez Coot) is*near Hong Kong, under construction.* (The photo was taken yesterday.)* The Vallejo Marina will likely be its future home.

You gotta love the firewood blocking up the boat.* When I was last in Hong Kong, there was no metal scaffolding either, it was all bamboo and it worked quite well.* Our factory was several story's tall, and the bamboo went all the way to the top.* One day just as I walked out the main entrance, a piece came crashing down, just missing me.* Looking up, I saw a guy with a big knife cutting the lashings, and just letting all the pieces drop to the ground.** Quite an eye opener.................Arctic Traveller

Same designer.* Both have strong, work-boat hulls made of steel with keel protecting propeller and shaft.* Except for the pilothouse, the DD's superstructure is lower with smaller windows rather than the higher saloon used on the Coot, making the DD better in angrier seas.*

Of course, the DD is significantly larger and more expensive.* The designer classifies the DD as a "troller" since it has a sail plan large enough to assist the engine, but it's not a motorsailer.* An option with Coot is a two-sail steadying rig, but it*is smaller in proportion to the DD's rig.* The DD is good for long, open-sea cruises while the Coot is a suitable*coastal/gunk-hole cruiser.
