One of my favorite boats, though the design is a bit nicer than the finished result.

My client, a poster here on the boards, is showing her at Trawler Fest this weekend in Baltimore. I think she is very well executed although I would re-install the forward mast and add a big furling genny.

Yes, it needs the jib to balance the rig.

Is your client Humphrey Bogart's ghost? The torpedo tube looks exactly like the African Queen's as she attacked the Lake Victoria German Navy.

Nice rig. It has been on mkt for a long time. I think the age scares people.

Somebody along the way doubled up the railing. I would remove the second tier also.

That's really funny!! A little Hemingway as well as under the canvas of the flybridge is a framework much like Pilar had.

Hey, the first pic looks like my neck of the woods! Can't quite see the Natty Boh sign. And that boat looks might familiar too. Hasn't she been for sale forever? Very nice lines ... and not too much railing for me.

Man if I was a single dude and was ready to do some serious cruising I would buy that boat in a heartbeat.

Alas, I'm a married dude (happily!) with high school age kids who wants to do some cruising, but just can't pull the trigger on a boat yet.

Re the "picket fence" (as FF put it) I agree the visibility would be poor. My Willard has quite good visibility but my friend Ed out of Craig AK has even better. The 65lb Forfjord anchor goes through the bow and is entirely below the cap rail. All the railings are gone and there is nothing else.
Of interest it can also be seen that he fiber glassed his cap rails so no teak to keep up there either.
Ed lives on a remote island and uses his Willard to go to town ... about once a month.

I actually feel the same way-- the hull looks good but the pilothouse looks odd to me. Would it look better without the tall Bimini on the flybridge? Is the pilothoiluse just too short? Does it need some forward raked windows? Lol.

Maybe Healhustler can do some photoshop magic to make it look better and give me some ideas. I want to talk my DW into this boat but she thinks it's too awkward looking in its current state.

The windows in the pilothouse just need to be re-done. Some famous designer once said the windows/ports are the eyes of the ship, if they're wrong the whole thing looks off.....

Then sort out the details, get that dinghy down where it belongs, fix the handrails and bridge top, probably revise the paint scheme.

Hmmm ... the "eyes of the ship" are the hawsepipes, at least on modern ships of the past couple hundred years.

Sailors have been painting eyes on the bows of ships since triremes ruled the waves.

Eyes on boats, before electronics how else could they see to find fish or get through a fog?

Apparently you've never watched Theodore Tugboat.

Does this look better?

My photoshop skills suck, but squint at it to get the general idea....
