Trawler Figurehead

Obviously you all know*I am a Broker*but I'm not trying to advertise in this post.* But I think you will appreciate the photo here.

When was the last time you saw a figurehead on a boat?* Pretty neat huh?* The owner took*over 500 lbs of clay to sculpt the mold.* The mermaid is life size, about 4.5 feet tall.*

I've asked the owner to design one for my boat.* I'll have to go into the off-the-deep-end section to tell you about the changes I'll make....

RE: Trawler Figurehead

An mermaid figure off of a old commercial trawler was given to us with the promise she would be mounted on the bow of our trawler.* My wife refinish/pained her, and she is ready to mount with her chest uncovered.* *

That's pretty cool. How is it attached to the boat?

Hey Phi/Fill
Is that you on the hard? Went down to check the boat at lunch and saw a big trawler sitting in the new yard. Should be a good time to mount your figurehead!

Yep that is us. The wife is traveling and need her advise. I extended the anchor gang plank thing out one ft so the anchor would not get caught on her.
