I've Found It !!!!

Thank you to all of the contributors on this site ....... I've searched from Prince Rupert to Bullhead City for a boat that I would enjoy and have found it in Sidney , almost next door!!! The Breadbasket is a 28 foot converted lifeboat originally built in 1947 -- reclaimed in 1987 and rebuilt... she's a steel hull with a 120 Lehman Diesel ... The PO has taken meticulous care of the boat -- exciting!!!!! We will haul it next Friday--bottom paint and new Zincs ........ then we'll change the oil after a warm-up orientation cruise .... funny how boat shopping goes -- we looked at trailerable boats in our price range--were very close to purchasing an Albin then a C-Dory then looked at an Allweather --- all of a sudden Voila the Breadbasket appeared -- we had a look and that was it ....... So , the learning curve continues --- Info. re. the Breadbasket--Pacific Boat Brokers.com...thanks again... john

I love it.
Your diesel stove is the same as the one I have. I use it all winter long here in Alaska.
A little finicky but follow the lighting instructions to the letter and she will keep things nice and toasty for you.
Congradulations. She looks stout and salty.

Congratulations John! We just closed on our boat yesterday. It's a great feeling to finally bag the boat that is right for you.

Completely re-fit fiberglass '67 Owens Flagship. Nowhere near the beautiful character of Johns steel ex lifeboat but has plenty of charm for our river cruising plans.

HaHa Another full disp double end trawler on the forum.

Looks like you've got about as much space onboard as we do on Willy. Your ballast is in the form of engine iron instead of concrete and steel punchings. With that big engine direct drive would probably be more user friendly and no efficiency lost. You'll probably be able to cruise at about 1000rpm as you only need a 10% power loading to push the hull. I like the colors and the spaces on deck. Lots of room to get about and do what you need or want to do gracefully. This time of year the diesel stove will be great. Where are you going to anchor first? What about dinghy?

Congratulations on your purchase. One thing to note, a friend had a converted life boat and his rolled like crazy. After he fitted outriggers and stabilizers life was good. Just something to keep in mind.

Nice going.
That's a nice looking boat. So many conversions were not but it looks like you found a goody.

Might be hard to troll from, but it looks great for prawning.

Congratulations! Hope to see you out there.

PS: Sure is easy access to the steering ram!
