What does your BOW look like?

Awesome boat, Bob. Giant expensive boats are a dime a dozen. I love them too but Handsome trailerable ones are extremely rare. Maybe we could set up a "Trailerable Trawler" section on here. There is a custom section as well. In any event, feel free to utilize this site to the fullest and be proud of that thing. Start whatever thread you want(no need to wait for someone else to start it). I know we have a tendency to be a little gun shy coming from T&T but don't(no offense to the T&T folks...I realize it is a bandwidth thing). That is why we set up this site you could have the freedom to show your stuff and be yourself.

Speaking of bows.* This is bow of our Diesel Duck in the Baltimore Harbor this summer.
On one side of the bow is the draft in metric and the other side -in feet.

RE: What does your BOW look like?

Hey Bob, nice to meet ya and everyone here. I've seen you on the "other" forum for yrs.*I've never had her on a trailer but I really did think about it once, and may still do it. We lived on her in Dominica for over a year and I seriously considered building a trailer to pull her on there since there's no lift there and no hurricane shelter. Ended up just going to Antigua for hurricane prep but it complicated things a lot for us.

As for our boat John B... We don't have a website about us/Mariah, although it's on my list,*but it you follow the*"shorter link" on our sig line you'll see what pics I have put up on the MSN T&T pics site. I need to*go back there and put up some new ones but don't get high speed very often to*do it.*

She is*a*62'*steel trawler built in 69*by*Gilbert*C. Klingel on Gwynn's Island in the Chesapeake Bay, at his "one man boat yard", for a man in Charlotte, NC*named Cato as a pleasure yacht*and originally christened "Manteo".*She displaces about 72tons, has twin Cat D-333s, 1-Cat/Lima 30KW and 1-Onan 6KW gen sets. She's more*boat than we need, and sometimes more than we*want, but we needed a boat that we could anchor out on for*years at a time*and that would*provide*everything we needed without shore support. She was what we could afford that would do that.... Besides, we*now love her*so you know how that goes.*

We didn't know anything about her*for*years after we bought her and just assumed there were many other "Gwynn's Island" owners out there. However,*after a lot of web searching and many generic requests on*web sites for info we finally*got an email from a man in Baltimore, Mr. Ken McQuade,*that had known*the builder, now deceased, very well*and he told us what we know about her history of the boat and*actually*sent us some scans of slides he had taken of the boatyard.*

He told us that*Klingel had retired from*Armco Steel in Baltimore MD*as Chief of Metallurgy there.*He*began building*steel sailboats, of about 33' designed by*Al Manson,*while*there and continued on Gwynn's Island*after his*retirement. I guess he built about 11 sailboats but Mariah was the largest boat he ever built and one of only two power boats, the other being a small tug type work boat. Mariah was built after he retired to Gwynn's Island where I presume he had lived before. This*gentleman*also told us that Klingel had written a book, ["Boatbuilding* With Steel" -* International Marine Publishing Co. 1973 ISBN# 0 87742 029 7] in which we could find pictures of her during construction.**This book is out of print but we did find one and it's an excllent resource for steel boat building.

I'm sure this is a heck of a lot more than you wanted to know, and prolly not where I should have put it, so please let me know if there's an appropriate place for such background info here.
Cheers, Jon

Jon, that is absolutely good stuff and welcome here!!! A boat is just a boat until we instill a little soul into her. It sounds like MARIAH has a part of your soul and you a part of her's!!!!

RE: What does your BOW look like?

Your so very*right about that John.*
We found*Mariah via*a really great FL*broker, (Howard Donhauser) and I remember being philosophical about how the boat would gain a lot of value after we did all the needed repairs/upgrades*needed. I remember him saying to "never fall in love with a boat"...

Well, that didn't work out to well...*

A few years back the work we were doing in the Carib dried up and we couldn't find work in the US that would allow us to continue to live on the boat. It was*quite an eye*opener to discover*how much we'd "fell in love". Actually much more of a surprise was that it wasn't mostly me... It was*Susan who couldn't stand the thought of loosing "her child" Mariah. Who'd a thuk it?

I'd like to*mention that at that time we*had it listed with*Judy of JWYs,*(and it's good to see her here). She did a great job for us but we didn't end up having to sell after an opportunity came*up in SXM.

Some day I hope we will be able to spend some years touring the US waterways but I don't know how we'll ever part with Mariah since she would be a suitable boat for that use.
Cheers, Jon

A chunky Honduras mohagany bow. Needs a new coat of paint, whenever it gets above 50 degrees again on Long Island.
