Teddibear?

Here's an interesting one. It's got a helicopter landing pad. I wonder about how seaworthy she it.

This boat was at the Trawler Fest in Anacortes several years ago and was open to the public. What a fantastic ship this is. The nicest I have ever seen in over 60 years of boating.

Egad. That's a lot of ship (condo) squeezed into one pudgy package!

Looks like a sound vessel.

However I personally don't find it good looking in any way - in fact it is not pleasing to my eyes.

Wonder why that is? Too square, squat?

Not sure.

I had no idea Red Head was once owned by Billy Joel...and here I sit about 200' down the dock from her. Thanks for posting this link Jim.

And, I cannot figure out who Mr. Teddi Bear is.

I may be wrong but I thought that Red Head had some pretty serious modifications made to her under Billy Joel's ownership. Wasn't she stretched???

To own a boat like that you'd have to have a mind-set where being a good little herd follower just isn't part of your makeup. Then, as the temperature hovers just above freezing and it rains for weeks on end, you could cuddle up in condo worthy comfort and enjoy the view after explorations ashore or fishing by dinghy.

Red Head is Active Captain's boat now.

There's a video online that's impressive. I'll try to look for it.

Not nearly tall enough - needs more weight up top too.

I should have said that I wonder who the Mr. Teddi was that named the boat after his wife?

If you have the Active Captain Locations app you can see where Red Head is right now and where I am right now.

On a somewhat related note, am I the only one one who has gotten sick of Billy Joel's music? I liked him years ago but now it's just been played too much. The band in the marina next door played an entire BJ set the other night, I had to leave and go get dinner somewhere else.

Teddi Bear

Ahoy,

We had occasion to go aboard this immaculate vessel today in Bremerton. She looks as good as her website portrays her. You could have thrown a baloney sandwich under any of the engines, then picked it up and ate it. The paint is 10 years old and beautiful. The owners were aboard and they welcomed everyone (TrawlerFest) like old friends...classy people.

I have not been a fan of these boats in the past, but Teddi Bear is a special boat. If we had the extra cash sitting around, we would have had some serious conversations this afternoon. Someone will get a real gem.

Jeff
