Larry,
Could you send me some pics of her? Is that a canoe stern I see? Tell me more. We keep ours in Deltaville where do you keep her?

RE: WTB: Steel or aluminum trawler.

Daddy, Yes it does have a round stern. I keep her at Colonial Harbor in Lanexa Va just west of Williamsburg. My boat partner acquired her in 2001, he passed away 2 years ago. The only major trip shes been on is the trip up from the west coast of FL to Richmond Va. Built in 1972 with a singleV8-510 perkins which ended its life in 1999 with a loose drain plug. At that time a 6068 John Deere was installed and had only 37 hrs on it when we left FL and still has only 400+- hrs. Doesn't have a bow thruster and so far haven't needed on. Control station on the back upper deck is a silent, the only thing you hear is the water, place to run the boat. The orginal owner had it custom built and lived on it on the Tenn Tom. Second owner lived on it in Boston Harbor until he retired and moved to Fl. As the third and present owners we have been trying to repace a few of the tired systems. Hot water tank, holding tank, old window rubbers and glass, and a few pieces of tired metal. Vinnett builds a stout hull but over the years I've found a few supprises, like metal scrap left over in the builge under the 50 gallon stainless steel holding tank. Caused a rust pocket and ended of replacing a section of hull plate, oct 08 rail visit. I plan on replacing a little more plate on rail this fall after I give up my full time job for part time semi retirement. It still has the orginal 7KW kohler generator with who knows how many hrs on it. The remote start stop circuit on it gave up the ghost last year and parts are none existant. It now has an on/off switch in the pilot house and a start button in the engine room and still runs like a top. It also has an old Woodfreeman auto pilot which isn't working. I hope to find something simple wrong with it and get it going again.

The one thing I like about her is the look. Nordy's have nothing on me and I'm about $1.5 Mil less than they are and have just as much fun. Our trip up the intercoastal winter Xmas/New Years of 2000/2001 was fun and 13 days of busy fun for all of us. First trip for me fouth for him. I want to do it again one of these days but in the warm of summer. Anyway to make a long story shorter she's a jewel and you don't see them very often. She can still turn heads where ever she goes at her age.
Larry
