Either ran outta projects to do on William or finally bought that Alaskan. Either way William will fill its next owner with pride for sure.

Marty,
I was think'in the same thing ... that the hulls were similar. I think the E32 is almost identical to many gillnet/combination boats in the PNW especially Canada. I know I have seen pics of your hull but some time ago and the recollection is hazy. But perhaps I'm hazy on both.

Eric,

The E 32 hull is also similar to the Skookum 34. There are several S 34 in Ak as netters and trollers. The S 34 was developed as a commercial hull and was a popular boat. I owned a S 34 many years ago that was built as a pilot house trawler. In 1991 I added 3 feet to the boat and sold it in 1996. It is still here in Sitka and is a great boat.
I noticed that the OR 32 also has a similar size and shape forward trunk cabin and pilot house as the E 32. Even the the fiberglass work around the top of the pilot house is similar. Several of my commercial troller friends have noted that the E 32 would make a great little troller.

The Outer Reef was built in Fla . He only built 2 or 3 of these. He built several 26 ft and a few 36 ft .The beam is 12 ft . There is a walk thru door in v berth to engine room .
I've talked with a couple brokers about listing it and the first thing they said was it's a custom build and there are no comps, harder to sell . I may be on my own trying to sell it .

Marty,

Thank you for the information. The E 32 was designed by Ken Hanksen of Glen L. He originally sold the plans to be built in steel or plywood. A number have been built off his plans. Transpacific Marine had been building sailboats in Asia for a number years and liked the Hanksen design. They asked him to design a similar boat in fiberglass and thus was born the E 32. Transfer Pac built this as their first power boat and has since built a number of larger boats all called Eagles. Do you know the individual that designed your boat?

Marty,

Thank you again. Interesting that the OR 26 is also very similar to a Glen L design.

Old Deck,
The first trawler we looked at was at Gibson's Landing BC. Home built Glen L in plywood w very little paint. The broker started it and the owner had put a tin can over the dry stack exhaust. Blew the can up in the air .. can't remember where it landed. Would have bought it if the price had been right.

From pics in the past I think the Eagle stern design was (when they went to FG) taken from the stern design of the PNW combination boats like OFB's boat here on TF. Nice design that is FD but a little like a SD boat that gives a little more speed than the traditional FD hull. That is the ability to cruise a bit closer to hull speed or slightly above. The Eagle 40 is a bit more so than the 32 in this way IMO.

Marty, nice boat, it would sell very fast in Alaska. Eric, Hankenson wrote an article in Sea magazine (?) about the E 32 and stated that is a SD hull. I have a copy of the article around here somewhere. The old Lehman 135 at wot only does 9.3 knots. This boat loves 6.5 to 7 knots. At 80% throttle it will do 8 knots.
