They did move to the far side of the channel before opening it up. It was gone in no time but we caught up with it at a dock. Probably had to refuel.


I just wonder what it was supposed to do and why the outboard power.

Seen on the Potomac River near Washington DC. It belongs to the US Army so I guess it doesn't matter how the fuel mileage is.
OK, yeah, but what do they have for get-home power!

A sister ship to come get them. Remember, it's the US Army. Your tax dollars at work.

Ranger Tugs and Rosborough offer small "trawlers" with outboards. There was a rumor last year that Nordic Tugs was thinking about putting an outboard on the 26 footer, but nothing came out of that (yet).

I think the OP is talking about a far bigger boat than the ones above.


There are several <30' trawler style boats out there and have been for years. That's not what the OP is asking.

I almost bought a Rosborough 246 last week. Even laid down a deposit. But after thinking about it some more overnight, I had to bail out. I'll be starting radiation treatment in about 3 weeks, and if that doesn't work, who knows what's next?!

Anyhow, it was a meticulously maintained boat with great owners who took us out for a run on the Susquehanna River. I would have bought it if my medical situation wasn't so TBD.

I have no financial interest in the boat, but of you're looking for a nice Rosborough 246, there's one listed in BoatTrader in Havre deGrace, MD that you should consider.

Good luck on your treatment. My dad recently went through chemo and radiation and he is currently in remission. My thoughts are with you.

Thanks, Cardude. I'm "special" and the rules do NOT (edit) apply to me so I'm going with cancer is just a major PITA that is disrupting my plans. But I'll beat it!

I was trying to find more info on that other posted photo, and I ran across this:

Yeah, actually Donsan introduced the Great Harbor outboard version earlier in the thread. One of our members is having one built now. Looks like a winning combo.
