Not too many round here but here's a couple. And here's a couple of "Novi" (nova Scotia) style boats with them.

Oh, and Hustler, I officially give you permission to photshop Lotus to see what a CHB 34 with forward raked front windscreens would look like.

OK Pete: *Here it is but I didn't do it and I don't know where the original picture came from. *Whoever did it must have an appreciation for Chubbies and their teak though.

RE: Wannabee Windows

dwhatty,I think the orange boat looks terrible, the 2nd boat looks great and the other two not so good looking. Peters Chb looks a bit like a Lord Nelson or an old man w a BB hat w the bill turned way up * * ...kinda dumb looking. And the Chb is one of the best looking trawlers. Hustlers boat would look terrible w normal aft slanting windows. It seems to me each boat is different regarding the window slant. Mark's Coot would look too boxy w vertical windows, too stupid w raked back and goofy w raked far fwd. All the boats in our home page photo have raked back windows and they all look like they don't need to be changed.

I think they all look odd. This is what I think a lobster yacht should look like. Take off the bridge, shorten the house, open up the stbd side and put on a pot hauler and its what a lot of the working boats around here look like.

Yeah, and maybe it did. *With the tall narrow windshield, the lines on your boat are just so classic that attempting to do something less than classic may not blend. *Here's a more interesting, and certainly "classic" round front vertical house that uses the natural flare of the flybridge. *

This one actually looks very good.* Hustler, are you a graphic artist?* You're doing a great job with Photoshop or Illustrator or whatever application you're using.

Well, thanks all. Healhustler if you didn't do the first one who did, because it is my original boat photo, and very well done. I said it might get ugly, but it was a useful exercise. The first raked one does not look great, but maybe if the window surrounds were white, like the original photo and how you did it on the second one....? I think I'm even less impressed with the second vertical ones actually, as I have never liked vertical windows on things that move, (sorry Eric) but it just does not look right. So, on comparing them all, I officially declare the original rear-sloping ones to be most aesthetic, (in my view - and probably Marin's), but they don't work as well as the forward sloping ones would I think. They are a bitch for trapping salt spray, let a lot of sun in, (hence the shade cloth screen for bright days), have bad night reflections. The only thing in their favour is I love the outward opening middle window, (sadly, fixed in later models), and which is lovely for ventilation, and would be tricky to set up in a forward-raked set-up. So do we call it a 'draw'? 'scuse the pun......
Thanks for the effort anyway guys, but hey....wait a minute, I reckon if the forward raked one was in white, and a bit more more rakish it just might.....hmmmmmmm

If you are a fan of Jarvis Newman boats, check out this hull that was finished by Zimmerman Marine. They were docked next to me in Hatteras NC last June. When I win 2 lotteries I'll buy one. 1 lottery to buy it and 1 to feed the 900 HP motor).

Now that's one good looking boat! (I really don't care what the fuel consumption is.)
