Attachment 51497

A really good sheer (IMO) is a twisting sinuous curve of ever changing radii, a line to get lost in. It does not just go flat from midships aft, it's got perk at the stern. Most end up looking droopy aft unless there's a subtle little lift in the last few feet.

Attachment 51498

In Maine the powderhorn effect is called "Moose Shoulders" and can only be spotted from certain viewpoints.

Wow Tad , Do you have anymore pics of this second boat ?

That's Sandavore, ex Barbara Jean #1, 42' x 12' and built 1963 by Wahl Brothers yard in Prince Rupert. Sorry no better pictures.

This is a Farrell 37, designed 40 years ago in 1976. I think the sheer on these shows strong character. These were first built of wood in Pender Harbour, but seemingly a timeless design. There's a new book just published about Barrie Farrell and his boats.

One of Barrie's personal boats is for sale.
Oddly it was converted from pleasure to fish.

Great attribute assisting in the good "sheer-look" of a Huckins is its unique cabin window designs. I do like dem Hucks!

Here's another humble candidate offered for your tasteful scrutiny. It is my own Krogen Manatee hull with the boxy house removed via Photoshop, and a Searay cabin slapped on top in its stead. This way, one can enjoy the sheer, independent of the "functional" distraction.

Have always loved the lines of Wahl boats. "Legacy in Wood" by Ryan Wahl is a great read.

Dave,
I was drooling over her too. Name "Wells Grey"? Had a single Cat V8. Was grey in color then..

Something about our own BC boats that just get prettier with age.
She has such a lovely set of hips, eh?

Dave, c'mon out, I'll introduce you.

Hwash,
What a beautiful boat.
May be hard to see logs in time w the poor helmsmans position. But it looks like she's seen a few channels and inlets as it is. I love this type.
OFB (Old Fish Boat) here on the forum has a very similar boat and of course I love it too.

She was built in 1961 by Yamanaka Boat Works, Steveston, BC as a gillnetter and the first owner had her until 2004=43 years. A gap until 2011 when the current owner bought her. The minimal specs I can find says 135HP which, if a Lehman, means it was repowered at some point.

She's currently tied up in Sayward with a for sale sign on her. I assume the doghouse goes down into the hold below where the drum was.

Hwash,
Now I see the cabin is shorter that it looked in the first pic. Looks a lot better for visability. Thanks for both pics ... can't get enough of these boats.

Rogue,
Nice boat. Why do they call them Fatty Knees? That dink is a lot like my converted yellow sailboat in post #9.

This is what happens when a Kiwi yachtsman designs a retirement boat for himself.

Lord Nelson Tugs have some pretty pronounced sheerlines.
