Looks interesting, but do you realize that's not a "canoe stern"?

Interesting bulbous bow. I find the paint scheme of the bulbous bow humorous as well.

Other than that, it looks like a capable passage maker.

Bulb looks home made, cottage designed and yeah, not a canoe stern.

The bulb was built in 1966 by the builder. Yes it's a rounded stern not canoe.

Anybody showing interest in this boat yet, Mark? It should be heading for the horizon...

Yes there has been interest but I think it's insane that she hasn't already headed for the horizons as you say!

The bulbous bow thing is just a tube welded to the bow, much too small to do any good IMP. And it makes the boat look stupid (also my opinion). Otherwise a very nice hull and if well found .. would be a buy at that price.

I'm not sure whether that's a bulbous bow or it's just happy to see me.
What's her name, Viagra Express? Put a raincoat over that thing.

Hey, I'm impressed that bulb was put on in 1966...that's pretty early isn't it?
