Give me a good IPA with an IBU of between 45 and 75 and I am in heaven. I never had cow piss, watered down or not so I can not compare.

I nice single malt puts a smile on my face as well.

Thanks, Ted. There were two boat names I was trying to think of but the only one that came to mind was Malahide. There is one in our harbor but it doesn't really look like Hawg's yellow boat. Romsdahl was the name I couldn't think of. i knew the wood around the pilothouse was a key identifier but obviously not for a Malahide.

At the time of your previous post suggesting Malahide, I had my doubts but would have needed another trip to the marina. There were just enough differences to give me doubt. Hefty stern stem, unique ladder to the Portuguese bridge etc.

Ted solved it and we are looking at a Romsdal probably from the 60s.

It's interesting to see the gap in the planking of the attached photo because the visible posts (??) are where the rot is so bad. It's like full length scuppers that would always be wet.

I think that one is 1962. Yes full length scuppers, no corners to catch and hold water.
IIRC the bulwark planking is plywood, I would guess a later replacement.

Yes, here's the listing;
Thunderbird Yacht Sales (West Vancouver, BC)

The holding tank figures are"misleading" according to the owner.
As you'll note the heat, cooking etc. is all electrical

But every post is a corner...
They are not the same boat though, right?

NO, not the same boat, but both are Grieg class Romsdahls.
The yellow one was named Viking Fjord , now called Solar Flare.
Yes , every "post" has 4 corners, but with the full lengyh scuppers there are no "inside" corners for water to lay in. It all flows away from the ribs overboard.

So, those "posts" are a continuation of the ribs, all the way up from the keel?

Like Ted, I was aboard Solar Flare this summer while she was docked in Campbell River. In fact she was docked right behind Blue Sky and I was very happy to have her as a dock neighbour.
Some further background to this very much a working project. The previous owner had let her go to the point where she was docked against a cement pier with no fenders. The result was that the hull side planking wore through causing the boat to partially sink bow down.
Eventually she was put up for auction where the current owner purchased her for a very good price.
There was a lot of damage but also a lot of work has been done to bring Solar Flare back to life. Much of that is unseen from the dock but evident once inside.
The owners are great people and are committed to making Solar Flare a great vessel once again.
Anyone who has a Rocna (purchased after checking out ours) has good taste....

We still get commemts from pleasure boats not wanting to be next to us, as the Eagle is to big, and ugly. We started reverbishing the boat from their keel to the water line first, then the next 4 years from water line up with the boat in the water. There was dry rot under the salon sliding Windows and the Portuguese bridge. Which was repaired at the dock. The rot in the bridge was water drain back and trapped. So we repair from the inside, making air vents at the top so moisture could escape and drain holes at the bottom so water could drain also canvas from the bridge to the pilot house roof keeps most of the water off.
Having full length scupper would be nice,

Owning a older boat does require an act of love pride hobby. I prefer going on and looking at older well maintained boat as I can appreciate the effort, time and money it takes.

Shouldn't be. The visible "posts" are called stanchions. They are short lengths of timber installed between the (much more closely spaced) frames, and are intended to be sacrificial. They can rot away or be broken off without damaging the basic hull.

Dunno about cow piss, but it reminds me of a journalist once asking " Do they still hold a cat over each bottle of NZ Sauvignon Blanc to piss just before capping the bottle, or has the process been automated?"
