The Nimpkish II was here as well last night. Built on seiner lines for the RCAF in 1944, later modified to a cruising yacht with the extended deckhouse.

I've never seen a red hulled Grand Banks before. That's mildly interesting.

I think #2 is a Scandinavian search and rescue vessel. The do come up for sale used (out of government service). The last I inquired they go for ~$250K. Twin engine, single var pitch prop, 22 metres long. I figured about 5000 mile range. The Admiral said no....

Example... http://www.djurgardsvarvet.se/en/com...-alexandra-975

I remember this as being one of inerest...

Yes, it does look like a Duck, I wonder if it is a home built. It does not appear to have sails or paravanes.

Was the rudder above the water line?

Later,

On TAD's pics the top one looks much like a 27' Monterey Clipper. I see though she's in Seattle. Boat looks considerably smaller than my Willard. Dosn't seem the best boat for a FB. A lot of W30s do though.

Dave re the red GB. Good example of why most boats are white. Or nearly so.

Yes I think it was that big exterior rudder.

The boat was at LuLu's.

Interesting boats

That second pic is a really nice looking boat. When I become rich and famous maybe you can design one for me. 😳

White hulled GB designs (especially the older ones like this - from post 2008) remind me of my horse ranch grandfather who passed in 1964... i.e. stotted

With red hull... this GB reminds me of his wife, with skirt on.

Neither were my favorite in family... Aggie certainly was NOT!

Definition of STOT (stotted / stotting)</SPAN>: to bound with a stiff-legged gait <the gazelle stotted when alarmed>

PS: I don't feel GB's are very interesting... what ever color the hull. Unlike many boats shown here that are VERY interesting.

Yest all, except that blue hulled double wide.What is that thing?It is interesting but looks hard to propel without tremendous amounts of power.
