Round the clock for 3 weeks, sleep and eat when loading or unloading or broke down. $$$. History of this barge, if my memory is still good, is that it started out in NY Harbor, dismantled and moved to Canada, made it to Hay River, down the Mckenzie, and then to Prudhoe Bay. It was put back together and used in Prudhoe. I don't think it got much work. Before it could go to work on the ice, in moving the Mukluk rig, the Coast Guard had to fly to prudhoe to sign off that it was seaworthy. I also think the barge operator had to be Coast Guard licensed. Us grunts towing it were not licensed, may be a slip up by the feds..those were the days!Attachment 46383
That would make a fantastic story for a sci-fi movie; I can see it all happening on Mars.

That must have been an unique experience; I doubt it will ever be repeated , must have been a very creative naval architect .

Hope this hasn't been posted yet.



"White Pearl," billed as the world's largest sailing yacht. Built in Germany for a Russian billionaire. Carbon fiber masts, at 300 ft, are 80 ft too tall to fit under the Golden Gate, according to Panbo.

Can you say "wretched excess"?

edit: well, damn, I see now photos have been posted; I'm finding the video grotesquely compelling.

If you wait long enough everything comes back around again. The lines are not unlike the old Spanish galleons.

He needed a sailboat to match his motor boat that made this thread earlier. Fortunately this one will make it under the Golden Gate Bridge.

That's not a major accomplishment, by itself. More important, what happened before that.



Nevertheless, It's always exciting leaving or entering The Bay.

There isn't a single line on that thing I like. Not one. I don't think I could design anything uglier if I tried. Clearly this person requires a LOT of attention.

The boat was repowered with a pair of V-12 engines but I don't know what kind.

The owner passed away recently and the boat is now for sale. It has had a lot of work done on its hull and systems. I was told the interior is currently gutted as this was to be the next step in the conversion to a yacht.
There is an Alaska tv show (the Browns family?) which showed them buying a currently running old WWII sub chaser. It looks quite simulat to your photo.

Dave...don't you like the buttock line and the way the stern rises just a little. Regardless, it's hard to imagine having a slow Sunday afternoon with an impulsive "let's go for a quick sail" with that one.

While at the classic boat show this summer I came across this well balanced OB skiff. I'm usually not a fan of OB wells but the balance benefits are plain to see here. I once had a boat much like this .. a Muckelteo Boat that was about 5' wide and 18' long. Hard over turns produced very high bank angles as a result of the very soft chines. I about fell out of the boat sitting in an unattached chair on my first sharp turn w the boat (tiller steering). Had to sell it when we moved to Alaska. To me there's not much else like a nice skiff.
