Spring is in the air

The fog yesterday delayed a bass tournament . We didn't have to weave thru bass boats to get turned around .

Love the picture. Let me just say that your Outer Reef is a fine looking trawler. Andre Bilodeau knew how to build them! Great to see a trawler that actually looks like a trawler!

Thank you, Pack Mule. Vashon Island Boat Works did make sailboats and there was a motorsailer variation of my trawler.

I found this pic online of a Vashon Tramp Harbor 25. They built their boats very well.

Great pic, Marty. I went down to my marina yesterday just to soak it all in. There are still no boats in the water other than the liveaboards that spent the winter in the water. I'm hoping to "unwrap" my boat this weekend. Just a couple of quick projects to complete before she splashes for 2015. Hopefully early April.

Spring is here! We have leaves popping out, thousands and thousands of birds and ducks and the first run of Chinooks is in full swing!

Here we are on our way up to MCYC for the St. Patty Day party, turning the props at 2100RPMs at 13 kts....yep spring is here in the lower Columbia River!

We went out last Monday for a 3-hour cruise. We slow cruised about 15 miles down the Columbia then turned around and ran upstream on plane for about 25 miles, then slow cruised back to the slip. It was sunny, about 68*, zero wind, only 2 other small fishing boats out there. Got the engines warmed up for the first time in awhile.

Darn near a perfect day!

Yup. Saw a bumblebee last week (about a month earlier than normal), flowers are popping up, eagles are finally getting free rides on thermals, and the herring arrived yesterday

Went razor clamming on the coast this weekend after getting back from my shoot in San Antonio. Saw our first redwing blackbird of the year. Normally they don't start showing up until well into April.

Meanwhile, a friend sent me these photos from Prince Edward Island......

Marty-- I am extremely selective in what I feel is a good vessel design from an aesthetic point of view. Most recreational fiberglass production boats leave me completely cold to the point where I pay no attention to them when I see them. But I have to say that your boat is one of the best designs I've seen to date on this forum. It's the sort of design that would make the operator really feel like he or she was running a "proper boat." To my way of thinking, that is as important an element of enjoying one's boating as fuel efficiency, interior configuration, and all the rest of it.

Thank you Marin
When we started out looking for a trawler funds were tight and we knew that if we found one we liked it was going to need a lot of work . We wanted a trawler that we didn't mind looking at to start . Joy said the last thing she wanted to do was load up the Outback with half the tools in my shop and supplies drive down to the marina spend all weekend and whatever spare time we had working on an ugly boat. That was our first priority.Three years later we are still working on it but it puts a smile on our face even with an arm load of tools and supplies .

Re post #6
Thank you ASD and the perfect speed for a boat on display. I can tell you liked the wake as I do because you cropped out just about everything else.

And to many spring is colored white still.

Yes white for many of us. This was Saturday after I shoveled for 30 minutes to make a path.
Right now my boat's name is Saditude Adjustment

Looks just like our boat at the moment. Shovel a path? Not my back. Waiting for the warmup.
