One of my neighbors built this from scratch. Started in 2005, just brought it to the yard yesterday. The steering wheel is from a Model T.

Lurker, that is one beautiful piece of art. I posted a photo above of an old Chris but the one model they made that really makes the old heart pitter pat a little faster is this particular model. It's the 1955 Continental with the bull nose bow. That is a true thing of beauty.





Ahhhhh, I think I need a cigarette and a nap.

140HP, don't know the make. But he said he couldn't get a carburated version, had to get FI. So, no Holley's on top.

Like they say.. I miss the clowns but not the circus.


Travel safe,

P.S. 450K.. must be a light twin, we usually left at 870K when I engaged the auto throttles!

Were still on the fence. I like the looks/performance of the Egg Harbor, but would like a bit more room and about 15-20 years newer. We are making plans to go up a size in 2 years or so, not sure if we are going to look for another Sport fisher in the 38-42 range like a Hatteres, Viking or Egg Harbor, or if were going to go up to a 40-45' trawler like a Ocean Europa. Trying to make it all work on getting a covered slip that fits a bigger boat, the cost of the boat... you guys know the deal.

IF - You can get covered slip to fit your needs... I much recommend doing so.

IMHO, a covered slip's added cost far outweighs the cost of open slip natural elements degradation on a boat's outside and inside portions.

We keep the 33' in a covered slip, and are on the wait list for a 40' covered slip but I think it will be a year or so before we get to move.

I've often said the same thing! I love 8 miles per hour now but it took a while to adjust to the idea that it takes 2 hrs to go 15NM ...which is the approximate circumference of a 360 degree standard rate turn in the jet at cruise speed.

I also can have much more fun with my boat when the engines are not operating than I could ever have with the Learjet 60 when the engines are not operating...a REAL 'lightweight' airplane compared to the behemoths you guys flew!

If 450K is a light twin, then a LJ60 is an ultralight.

I look at boats from time to time on YW when Iím bored. Iím cheap and fairly lazy, so I canít ever find one that I like better than my current boat to make me want to go through the process of selling and buying again.

Underwater porn

I introduce for your viewing pleasure, another kind of boat porn. According to Wikipedia, Submarines are referred to as "boats" rather than "ships" irrespective of their size. This one has been in our dreams ever since we found it. Found a used 3-seater, re-certified one for 500k. We even discussed training courses with the manufacturer in CA. Problem is fitting it on a N60. Fantasies and dreams are free. Sometimes they even become a reality. The videos of these are great to watch.

Paraphrasing the late U.S. Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart's famous opinion in Jacobellis v. Ohio, 1964: "I shall not today attempt further to define the kinds of material I understand to be embraced within that shorthand description [boat porn]; and perhaps I could never succeed in intelligibly doing so. But I know it when I see it, and the fancy-schmancy yacht in this advertisement from Passagemaker Magazine is definitely boat porn."
