RE: What does your BOW look like?

We are off to a good start here... Willy, I like the finished wood on your boat. Gives it a unique style and class.

Don't slip anchor in front of me, I won't move... instead I'll just watch the floatsam pass on either side of me

RE: What does your BOW look like?

You guys are too much! I busted a gut when I saw this new thread!!! Im still laughing!
I had to throw the last picture in for good measure, although I was working on the inside of the bow. Maybe we should start another thread on 101 positions!
AARRGGGHHHH!!

Ken

PS: Hey Marin...how do you like your Rocna? I'm looking very hard at adding one with the Bruce. (Don't wana hi-jack the thread. Maybe I should start a new one...OK I think I will!)

RE: What does your BOW look like?

I thought we did this already, but here are some more. Had to throw in the wharf rat that ate most of my boat. Also a photo of the "Lady Washington" (made somewhat famous by her role in Pirates of the Carribean). And finally, the best bow shot I currently have, in a Labor Day raft up in Garrison Bay, San Juan Island. The GB next to me is our friend Marin, who you may have seen posting recently.

RE: What does your BOW look like?

I think bows with mermaids are a lot more interesting than just plain old bows.*

The commercial have to vacate their net sheds by end of the year so they have been cleaning/thinning things out.* One of the old commercial retired has a figure head that I been lusting after for years.* Well, a couple of weeks ago he gave her to me with the condition that I would mount her on the bow of the Eagle as she has been in his family for years and they do not have a big boat anymore.*

So this winter will refurbish/pain her and in the spring mount her on the bow.* However, that metal anchor rolly thing will have to be extended so the anchor does not get hung up on her Ah, Err, thingies.* <^;{

So if you have a picture of a mermaid it world be a whole lot more interesting.*(-;*

RE: What does your BOW look like?

* I have heard it is bad etiquette to run the waterways with your fenders dangling over the side...

* Is it even worse to be on the hard with them dangling?

* Sorry El Sea, I couldn't help but mention it

RE: What does your BOW look like?

Not our bow but currently my favorite bow shot. This was taken during a film shoot I directed a couple of months ago. TrawlerForum's own Carey W. provided and skippered the chase boat. I had one camera on the chase boat and two on the ship. At the time this photo was taken, the "Lady Washington" was doing almost ten knots under every sail she could carry.

RE: What does your BOW look like?

Don't laugh, but this is what she looked like about 4-5 months ago and then again*a few weeks later. She's in the water now and I go do my acceptance trials and final inspection this saturday, but the*next good bow photo will probably only*be after delivery (just a couple weeks away now!).

A bit skinny in the bow, but I am looking for a trawler.
