thanks for asking.

boat is on the hard in my workshop, about to get the old bottom paint sanded off, and then a new coat of anti-fouling.

i got side tracked on building a yacht tender. The Apple Pie 2.

Drifter,
Put a skeg on the bottom aft and she should row well.

You going to motor, row or sail that Apple Pie II? I decided to go with Dudley Dix Argie 10 for my tender.

Thanks Eric, I won't leave that detail out.

Thanks Ben. Interestingly enough, a friend just gave me a sail, mast, boom, rudder, and daggerboard from some sort of 8 footer of the same type. The wife was wondering about a motor, but will most likely will be a rowboat

I've realized that the tender will be with my "yacht" in Port Edward. I wouldn't sail a 7' dingy in Chatham Sound .

We have a great sailing lake nearby, and if I want to use the sailing gear, I should build another dinghy to keep at home. I'm quite experienced with sailing - haven't sailed in years -and would be fun to have a little sailing dinghy.

Front ones will have some graceful curves. Boats must have curves.

Barrie Farrell 34 Pilothouse - Vancouver Island

You have done a SPECTACULAR job on your total re-build. I LOVE the aluminum pilothouse. Hope you are enjoying your "new" boat. Here are a couple of pics of my Barrie Farrell 34 launched in 1972. Great seaboat, Barrie built hundreds which have caught ten's of millions of $$ of fish. He is a legend. Pics taken last year up in the Broughtons's, (everything north of Campbell River ina pls don't come - COVID lockdown last summer). I have an 125 hp Isuzu 6 cylinder engine, gets 1.3 gph @ 7.5 kts.

Thanks IanMac for your enthused reply.

Your Farrell looks great, a real classic and classy vibe.

I've gone for the sportfish look on the pilothouse. My pilothouse is aluminumized fibreglass on marine okume plywood, but yeah it looks like aluminum and reflects radar like aluminum.

Very happy with the Farrell hull, and my build.Lots of interior work to be done still, and but that isn't boatbuilding, its RV renovation.

PS great boating, the few times I went, had good weather, caught lots of coho, a few halibut, and saw whales, porpoises (hunting around our boat), seals, seal lions, and what was really cool was a pod of orcas. And some cool coastal exploring.

Would love to hang with sister boats up north, I look forward to crossing north without concern, just can't say when these days.

Do either of you know how B Farrell is doing? Last I heard he'd moved to Sydney to be closer to family.
Cheers!

GoneFarrell, would be fun to have a sister ship get together. Travel is a mess right now, but next summer is starting to have a glimmer of hope.

No idea on how Mr.Farrell is doing, but hope he is enjoying retirement, and basking in his indelible legacy of PNW boatbuilding.

What a beautiful boat. And a big part of her beauty is what you put into her.

HaHa I remember disagreeing w what you were doing at least once. But I positively don’t see anything to argue about here. Cabin .. hull everything .. PERFECT. A three window pilothouse, no FB, a hydraulic anchor winch and no bow pulput. All together .. PERFECT.

Thanks Nomad Willy for the kind words.

I think I need a bow rail, if only for safety.


I actually do appreciate the comments on improving the aesthetics, and I don't necessarily disagree with any of them. But priorities are still on core functionality. Still much work to do.

My goodness, I need a breather from all the work I've done so far. I'm running out of gas. I was just so happy to get out and do some boating!

Finally got my hands on this book. Iím looking forward to reading it. The life and times of the man who built so many sisters to my boat.
