You look great in a flybridge, Walt! What a beaut...and no exterior brightwork! We're going to need lots more pics, including the fridge. What does 15 Kts feel like?

Congrats on your new ship. Will the name remain Sandpiper?

Time for a road trip!!

Thanks, John. "Sandpiper" has Yanmar 440s & cruises comfortably at 17 knots. 23 knots at WOT. (I didn't want to go faster than "Moonstruck.") Don's a nice old gentleman & deserves to keep the speed record.

15 knots feels like it's 10 knots slower than Moonstruck. Seriously, she cruises at 17 knots & it feels great to see the sea rushing by again. I'm not knocking trawler speeds but here in SoCal if you want to get the most out of your weekend, cruising in the teens is a big help.

Her name was La'a Kia & Renee renamed her.

Bruce...truer words were never spoken. She's a 2006 with 282 hours. I had the engine cooling system overhauled, heat exchangers, hoses, thermostats, coolant, etc. and she runs at top speed without any over heating. I was concerned that the low hours after 9 years could be a problem. They aren't! I have a "Gel-Coat repair guy (artist!) coming to repair a few pimples and warts and then she will be better than new. I'm also thinking about updating the electronics but so far I'm rather intrigued with the Raymarine E-120s.

Nice name and very classy graphics.

Now, show us your lower helm.

For a second there, I thought you were talking about Mark's dinghy...

Interesting comment.....we didn't want a lower helm. We wanted a dinette so we won't have to eat on the coffee table. We have a huge fly bridge (Some of the faster boats don't..) and since the controls are electronic, we will run a wire or two and mount another set on the shelf just forward of the dinette. Also, a remote to our AP will be along side of the throttles and shifters, giving us a poor man's down helm.

The boat was in Newport beach, about 80 miles north of San Diego and moved to the Marriott marina in San Diego & then to my marina (SunRoad) on Friday, the 6th of March.

In Queensland state, north in a tropical zone, no lower helm is common. More south in NSW not common (may imply an ex Queensland boat), in Tasmania well south I doubt a FB sees much use. Local build Riviera and Maritimo boats often have the FB so solidly enclosed and glassed you could use it comfortably anytime. Sandpiper may follow that path.

It's terrible to be old and not have a flying bridge, but alas I probably couldn't climb up there. Being this old speed is my friend.
