Brent,

* Your second photo is great! The fenders look like eyeballs and your anchor makes a great nose. Check it out....

RE: What does your BOW look like?

Gene, you're right. Just never looked at it that way!

And, Max, our boats sure look a lot alike out of the water from the cap rail down! And your crew is a little smaller than mine.

Brent---

What are the working boats in the background of your second shot? Fishboats, shrimp boats....? They look like they have nice designs.

Further to my last, here she is after my sea trials on Saturday, and just before bottom inspection. Still a bunch of things to be done including final bottom paint and boot stripe job.

RE: What does your BOW look like?

They are mostly Shrimp boats. There are a ton of them around here (Galveston Bay, Texas) There are also a lot of Oyster boats around here, but don't see any in that pic.
I've attached a pic of a shrimp boat that was in the yard at the same time so you can get a better look. Interestingly, this one is owned by a young couple, in their 20's. His Dad has a shrimp boat when he was growing up and he always wanted his own boat. It's a steel hull, and he was using a grinder with a wire brush attachment to take the entire hull to bare metal and using coal tar epoxy to seal it back. He is a tough kid, as that entire lifestyle is back breaking work! He was doing all this work himself, with a little help from Dad.



Hey, Boogiediver,
That's an interesting cradle that they are lifting your boat out of the water with. Is that a universal thing, or just made for that boat in particular? Never seeen it done quite that way.

Well, in this case it's the bow of the dinghy (you didn't specify did you?)
and a view over the bow.
Cheers

Hey Bob, if you would, start another thread and tell us about your boat. And if you have pics of the inside that would be cool too. I love small trawlers and yours looks to be really neat!!!

RE: What does your BOW look like?

Hi John,
I would like to start a thread about trailer trawlers and pocket cruisers at some point...or maybe someone else will.* Until then, please check out my website *for interior pictures and projects like constructing a radar mast and swim platform.* I just installed a hydronic heating system simular to the kind in cars that gets it's heat from the engine closed cooling system...my hot water heater does too. I haven't updated the site with*the installation*though.
I am making this a completely self contained and fully equiped cruising boat for protected waters and plan many future trips.
I think trailer trawlers and pocket cruisers are gaining in popularity due to the transportability and range of cruising grounds available to trailer boats....not to mention how low the cost to store and maintain one is* A website is overdue for this type of boating and my little podunk website comes up 4th or so on a Google search for "trailer trawler"...amazing.* Boat US has a trailer boat website.
Many manufacturers have noticed the market and a variety of boats are increasingly available.*
Here is a picture of when I first loaded her up on the restored trailer and brought her home.

Thanks for your interest,
