Yes, please confirm they are not Zinc's with you on the TN River.

Assuming you're still around Paris, TN, who is hauling it out for you?

When we bought William four years ago she was in salt water and these are what's left of the the zinc's . We had the boat trucked to Paris Landing . I didn't know at the time that zincs are not for fresh water. We are going back with magnesium . There was only half of the zinc left on the shaft . The other half blew off when we pressure washed .
Sunset Harbor Hill in Murray ,Ky. hauled the boat out and is doing the bottom job . It's 22 miles north of Paris Landing .

Man that is great, I just had the conversation yesterday with the electrician about getting the Rose ready for the 5 hour trip to the yard. 4 weeks and I'll be swinging in the breeze. William is looking good, are you going back with the same color?

Thanks Paul , The yard really likes to use black in this area . I would rather go back with red but I'm going with their suggestion . I'm going to lower the bottom paint line aft about 4" and raise the the bottom paint line about 2 or 3" at the bow . Then I'm adding a burgundy boot stripe about 4 to 5" wide on top of that .

Good looking boat in and out of the water. Amazing how they seem to grow when out of the water.

I had no idea they hauled out or did bottom painting. Do you know the capacity of their lift, sizes of boats they can handle?

Thanks cardude .
BandB the lift is not that big but I will check it out . There are two others in the area Green Turtle Bay and also Rottering . Both of these are on the Cumberland River but still pretty close . We used Harbor Hill because it was only 1 hr drive from the house and he will let us do some small projects on the boat ourselves while on the hard , plus everyone I talked with gave them high ratings on bottom jobs .Super nice good ol boys and big on getting it dry as possible before paint .

Getting deeper into bottom job and repairs William is revealing some interesting previous bottom work . At some point after the original build somebody decided to flatten out the aft sections . Not sure why or when this was done .I know that early on she was a work boat with reel in the aft deck and outriggers . It doesn't appear to be a repair because it was done on both sides .
Eric , or anyone if you're looking on maybe you help me understand why someone would want to modify /flatten out the hull aft sections .

Less roll in seas... especially beam seas.

SPEED,
How much power does she have? How much does she weigh?
William is a planing boat/hull.

Wow she must have been really slow before the modification . 135 hp . Not sure on weight maybe 18 to 20,000 lbs .

Marty,
She's too heavy to go very fast.
If she weighed half that she'd go perhaps 15 knots.
It's possable they made her fuller aft to carry fish.
You do'nt happen to have pics of a hull before the mod do you? Seems to me the builder made several (at least) boats like William. Any pics of them?
Any ballast?
She's quite wide too as I recall.

Size and weight she's kinda like a GB32. Is that correct? Probably has similar speed .. as they have 120hp and a similar shape .. and similar weight. All correct?

So you've got a GB32 Sport .....

Art,
Did you see the TollyCraft crab boat? A hack job but cleverly done .. I thought. We have another older Tolly express cruiser about 24'. Very nice looking boat.

Yes... believe I commented about it in a post a while thereafter, on same thread.


IMHO - Tollycraft are a substantially overlooked quality boat!

I'd think they were added to provide greater roll stability at slow speeds and maybe a little more aft buoyancy for the weight of the rigging.

I had always pictured William as having a displacement hull.

Maybe that's the reason there is more bottom paint exposed aft than anywhere else. When we repaint we are lowering the bottom paint line aft and increasing it at the bow . Then adding a boot strip .

Man this is a long process . The deeper we dig the more we see we need to do and we're not as young as we used to be. Today Joy and I removed a thru hull , a massive echo transducer for fish finder and a grounding plate . I'll probably be making new leveling blocks for transducer before rebedding . We hope to get back in the water for a little late season cruising .

From look of picture you could [almost] place your beaut-boat on a tri axel trailer and go all over the place. Good luck for getting to the point of splash again!
