Do you have a thread on the forum that has more pictures of your trawler?

I'm having a serious trawler-envy moment.

Great, now I can drool over Ulysses as well as Delfin. Love the look of those old Romsdals.

Here is one I took in 2013 at Lulu's Homeport in Gulf Shores. A fine vessel no doubt!

Do you ever have any trouble with draft crusing the icw around your area? I love that color. I almost changed the color of the rose when I saw your boat. I can't stop looking at it. Im on the fence I guess.

I have not had any trouble with the draft but then I pretty well know the Gulf ICW and most every creek that enters it from Mobile to Brownsville after years of commercial work. Bahamas gets dicey sometimes, no problems in Cuba, D.R. , Belize, P.R. . My area at the moment is your area, SWAMPU. Those pics are from Bayou La Batre.

Would you mind sharing the phone number and name of the yard in bayou la batre. The po said that was where he would haul but I never got a number. The rose is 22' wide and she doesn't fit in the yards around here

That's not a trawler...that's a small ship...

Looking good!

Was the paint sprayed or rolled?

Who's paint did you use?

If I was into open-sea boating, I'd want something like that. But isn't the anchor kind of small?

A stainless-steel bow plate can be very impressive!

The paint is Amercoat 450 nothing special about it. It was sprayed after sand-blasting and proper prep.

I have had no problem with anchor or anchoring; all chain rode (300')
