What boat make is this?

My wife and I saw this boat at the marina at Blake Island State Park in Puget Sound across from Seattle last weekend:



I absolutely LOVE the lines of this boat! But I couldn't find anything to indicate the make on it. The owner took off the next morning before I had a chance to go over and talk with him. (Okay, okay, so it was more because I slept in so late than because of his early departure time!)

Anyone recognize the make of this boat?

No, but I agree, nice. A foot more in the cockpit, and it'd be perfect.

My guess is custom, though it looks similar to some Little Hoquiam boats except for the transom stern.:

I agree with Keith, custom. There have been some very nice wood and cold molded one ofs made by various shipwrights in BC and WA. Not sure about the heavy dinghy up top though.

Beefy, manly, homeric! Agree on the cockpit size, though.

Yes it does Art. Bow end looks like a Tolly and stern end like an OA. Small cockpits are much appreciated for offshore work so pooping doesn't swamp the vessel. Especially in this case where oversized scuppers or hawse holes are not evident. The Straits of Juan de Fuca and PNW bar crossings are terribly unforgiving in a big and common following sea. Monk knew this and designed vessels accordingly.

It resembles a Skookum 42.

Point well taken about the limited cockpit size, Sunchaser. Still, purely for style points, a bit more cockpit would be an East Coast preference. Not sure about that extended upper deck/ cockpit shade though.

Looks somewhat like a Nordlund or Jensen, odds are it's by Monk or Garden.

How is the dinghy launched or recovered?

If the transom door is an indicator of deck level, I don't observe any external scuppers. Through-deck drains might not be sufficient.

Fly(ing) bridge appears to be useless this time of year. It was 40 degrees and drizzly today here. No time to be on an open bridge.

Nevertheless, all too much white, which, by the way, doesn't show up well in fog.

Look carefully to the starboard aft of the dink. You'll see the crane davit. The crane support pole can be seen extending through the flying bridge deck to the cockpit deck.

Ray, you're better at photograph interpretation than I.

The crane davit looks like mine; a Roskelley Olsson. RO, I believe, is located in the Seattle area.

The burgee they're flying is from the Port Orchard Yacht Club. I bet you could ask one of their members about the boat. They're very friendly people. And yes, Roskelley Olsson is in Seattle.

Yes, there's a davit on the starboard side of the dink. Here's another shot that shows that better.



I believe the dink was an aluminum boat. Looked good up there, I thought. However, were it mine, that radar arch along with the davit would go and a proper mast and boom installed. Those two items kill the magic.

Thanks for the ID on the burgee, porman! I live right here in Port Orchard so I'll have to check down there at the yacht club.

It was hovering just north of freezing when that picture was taken. Obviously no one was using the fly bridge that weekend! I have always loved the pilot house concept and shunned a second helm station up on a fly bridge, but the more I think about how much I enjoy my 16-foot Glasply runabout on a warm summer day, the more I think a fly bridge like that would be a really nice thing to have. So long as the primary station was in a properly configured pilot house with good visibility....

Not my type of boat but does look like a practical utilitarian Monk or Garden mid sized generic trawler. Lots of interior living space with plenty of light from big windows. High bow and freeboard for bashing through moderate seas. Depending on depth and ballast may roll a bit more than my comfort level. If you have the boats name the club registry may get you an answer.

Hmmmm. Appears to be without a name and home port, required for USCG documentation, nor state registration numbers if not documented.
