Gorgeous vessel. May I ask, in a case like this where the cockpit space is limited and no upper deck area for a dinghy, how does he utilize the mast and boom?

The nice thing about a Great Lakes Steel boat is they can last long time. The towing company I work has two boat that are 60+ years old and they don't get that much love but still get the job done. The ultimate trawler is totally related to the operational area.

The wooden dink is actually sitting in chocks (cross ways) on the aft end of the trunk cabin. If you click on the photo it will enlarge for a better look.

As funangler points out, these steel Great Lakes boats are survivors...this Vinette was built in 1964. The engine is the same vintage and runs perfectly. I can vouch for the fact that this tough ol' girl has seen some very big, nasty water over the years. The Vinette yard is still in operation, and I'd bet they'd build a new one for anyone with a little cash.

It's a custom build Britt. The one I posted was built by a builder in Surrey, BC who I believe has since gone out of business - Reyse Marine. I was interested in having one built back in 2004 and got a quote of $564,000 CDN which wasn't too bad for me as the exchange rate was around $.60 on the dollar. But right after that the dollar started weakening and I am lucky I backed out.

I went so far as to visit the designer Micheal Kasten when he was in Port Townsend and I went up to Reyse Marine 2 times to talk to them. The wide body design on Kasten's site is a result of my request for a bigger salon.

There was one for sale on the east coast awhile back but I don't know its current state. You could put a search into Yachtworld for an aluminum 40 footer and maybe it is still there. That one had a roll tank for stabilzation.

I tried a search but didn't get any hits. Certainly an impressive vessel. Thanks for the info Ron.

I love the covered cockpit/short wheelhouse with 2 cabins. I have 20 year old sketches similar to these (in concept only!) over a 40' Navy captains gig. One of these days it will come to be.

Tad nailed it with the removable house.

Check "Boats and harbors" classifieds...

Something from Steve Seaton's pen would do me just fine...

Or a converted Danish fishing boat,

Or a Romsdal,

Or one of Devlin's Kokanees or Sockeyes,

Or a William Hand motorsailer,

Or a ...

Very nice. If I was a Laker, I'd sure be looking at that one. It looks like a good value. Thanks for sharing that one.

I have met Mr. Kasten several time as the Seattle Boat Show and Anacortes Trawler Fest. I talk to him several times about adding bilge keels to the Eagle as shown on http://www.kastenmarine.com/chantage_64.htm to help present the Eagle from rolling over and reduce the roll a bit as I do not want to add stabilizers if possible. He has several dozen boat designs/lay outs. Donít drool to much!

The next one !!

Or if we can't sold our actual ....our actual boat,
even if she is not perfect, but alway boat is a compromise .
I like Tad Robert design LT56, but also some Kasten are not far from our "ultimate" choice.
And just if one day we could try one of my dream a long narrow, boat with a minimum drag for circumnavigation ...non stop

In my point of view :
-lenght betwen 54' to 64'
- beam maxi 16'6"
-shoal draft (4')
-small air draft (around 10') for European canals
-L/D 120/150
- displacement full load around 65000 lbs
- Tankage around 2000/2500 us gl
- one part of the bottom flat to be able to stand up alone in tide area
- small mast but with sufficient sail to arrive somewhere
- selfrigting ability
- relatively small engines ( clearly our actual 2 X 215 hp are too big)
2x110 or even one 215 hp will be enough


Finally one boat very near our actual Hoa

just change the hull lines from that
structures-et-cotes

to that
structures-et-cotes

only complaint I would have is the slip fees because of her length

Would this boat make it down the Mississippi to the Gulf Coast? Any draft or clearance problems ? Could a newbie do that trip?

Spy,
Seaton's boats aren't lookers but great boats if you like heavy for heavy's sake.

W Hand ...... now there's some great boats. Handy Billy is a Hand design. I don't like motor sailers myself.
