Ahhhh there's nothing more exciting than getting the boat of your dreams! Congrats! & when you come up to the Chesapeake, send a shout-out! Would love to say Hey!

Your Boat's got gorgeous lines, btw. A real head-turner! :-)

Survey and haul scheduled for Monday the 17th.....Fingers crossed, but I don't think I'll find any surprises. My surveyor did this boat a year ago..
It was owned for years by an older gentleman who died and kept meticulous records. Sold to a local man by his widow as a sort of interim boat a year ago. Not much done to it in that time. He recently bought a big catamaran so that put it on the market.. Had an $8K bottom job done 5 years ago at a local yard. 1400 hours on the Volvo. It's all looking very good!

A small boat for that trip, but it got us there in fine shape!

On the Flybridge, this was desirable though I know the Cons here. My thoughts are that boating should be an outdoor sport. Enjoying the Environment and the sights and sounds of being on the water are a big part of that. Being couped up in a cabin would detract from that a bit... I'll pay a bit in weight and fuel but to me it's more than worth it. Ironically this boat is berthed next to a Bristol 35.5....a sister boat to the one I used to own. It must be a sign!

Heron - Bravo!! Really Nice boat!!!

Regarding the bold section in your quote above... Man, I FULLY Agree!!!!

Happy Boating Daze! - Art

I go along with Art's and Steve's assessments of a flying bridge on this type of boat. While we do not drive from our flying bridge for several reasons, we're glad the boat has one. We use it when we've arrived at our destinations, and guests enjoy riding up there when we're underway.

I think it adds a flexibility and dimension to one's boating that would be missed if the flying bridge wasn't there.

There are some boats that won't accomdate a flying bridge, or a flying bridge would really mess up the boat's aesthetics. But in the case of the Cape Dory that's the subject of this thread, I think the flying bridge is very well done aesthetically and "fits" the rest of the boat.

I also agree the boat would look nice without a flying bridge. But I don't think the installation of a flying bridge hurts the visual aesthetics at all on this particular boat.

Heron, have u ever seen the Lyman w flybridge on her hardtop? I was looking at that before I found Starside. Think- Crab Pots on the Chesapeake! The Fly Bridge is mandatory!!!

I can't mess up my lines w Starside but I still look at Lyman's as my eventual 2nd boat (if I win the lottery, of course!)

I haven't seen that....but having my run-ins with crab pots on the bay I can understand!

Sea trial, Haul-out, Bottom scrub, hull check and survey yesterday...

Very clean bill of health. Everything works, runs great....
Some equipment surprises...Washdown system, Wireless Handheld for the Auto-pilot etc. Nice! Looks like a settlement later this week!

Bet you get good mpg at hull speed or a smidge below with that pretty baby. Looking forward to your reports!


What's with the sack on what I guess is much hair... in front of boat. See that in kitchens and computer main frame rooms... but, at boatyards during hauling??

Lots of records over the years.....Seems to hit hull speed at 1800 rpm...Travels pretty smartly in the low 7 knot range at 2K. Dirty bottom for the sea trial...Should be better now! Trip to the home port at the end of the month (50 miles or so) so we'll see!

I guess he was wearing that to keep the powerwashed gunk off...The smart guy wore a full suit!

Well...Yesterday I became an owner, so i guess it's all official now. All it took was a boatload of money!
Happy as a clam...Upgrades already underway, and will move her to Washington NC next weekend!

My (new to me) Volvo:


Galley slave headquarters:


Cocktail lounge:


Helm:


I found a good one...Looking forward to years of fun on her..
