I know it is attached to the boat in front, but it looks like it belongs to a sailboat. Lot of prop protection though.

I assume the whole boat is original except the FB. Is that correct? This is a little like what I was going to do before I bought Willy. Trawlers seemed more like a party barge and sailboats were ...... well .. sailboats. Sailboats weren't barges but they had all that silly sail stuff on'em.

SO .......
I was going to take most of the keel (and most or all the ballast) off, .. and lengthen the keel (more like a trawler). Take ALL the cabin off along w ALL the silly sails, masts and rigg'in. Put the engine amidships and redeck and build cabins just about like the Nordic Tug.

Too much work. Wouldda been great though. A roomy 35' trawler w the power and fuel consumption of my Willy. OK not quite but very close.

That's the way to have a big FB like the boat Steve posted though.

Keith Olive had a Willard kinda like this. A sailboat keel and a big FB.

This was taken in New Orleans it is a sailboat mast removed and a "pilot house" or cabin built on to the hull, then a FB I am sure from a wrecked boat left over from Hurricane Katrina mounted on top of it all. There were hundreds of boats pushed up into corners of several marinas in the N.O. area below are a few still being picked up in 2007 two years after the storm.

You know Steve, when I look at both photos you provided, I'd say that the keel and one mast belong to the flybridge equipped...uh, whatever you'd call it.

My initial thought was that it was a Schucker, which has a very similar looking model, but I don't believe it is one.

Conrad, I see you are absolutely correct, it's clear in this angle. I wonder what he does for a main, maybe only uses a jib downwind?

That's a Lancer, probably a 44', built in California in the 1980's. Lancer Yachts

Lancer was a company started by Dick Valdez after he sold Columbia Yachts. They built an extensive line of motorsailers, sailing cruisers and one notable racer/cruiser designed by Bill Lee. The rest were all designed by a guy named Herb David, who later did some big trawler yachts in Taiwan. The motorsailers were wide and flat-bottomed, often with big twin diesels, to power at 12mph or so. The flying bridge versions had a boomless main that sheeted to the backstays.

A Lancer, of course - I'd forgotten about them. Didn't they build sailboats in the 25 - 30 foot range that you could put a huge outboard on and reach 20 knots? At least that is what my so called memory is saying. Obviously a centre board or dagger board would be involved.

Holy crap. Can you imagine cruising along and some blow-boat flies by you at 20 knots?! That really is an interesting boat.

Like the Macgregor 26 sail boat / power boat. Water ballast. The first time one passes you pulling a water skier , with mast up , gets you ta thinking. when you be in the 7 knot boat.

Another individual statement

Here's an individual solution to the endless search for a vessel that exactly suits your requirements.
I particularly like the beefy tiller.

Eric, Been messing around attempting to post photos so here is the effort. These are of the former boat 'Tenacious' which you have been kind enough to pose on this thread. It is in fact a very interesting conversion. The new owner is content.

Wow! boy now I can see why you folks post photos! Let me contribute. Below is an old Lake Union, Wash. photo of a then fairly new yacht "Avarilla". Then following she is pictured as she is currently in Ketchikan and has been for many years. Sadly she is in disrepair, yet she is for sale to some enterprising soul with a vast fortune.

By the way, the Principia is still, as far as I recall, as pretty as she is in this above photo. If any PNW residents reading here would, confirm her status. When I was a boy, she would cruise local waters.
Thanks

Attempted to submit a short historic history regarding American Marine and Grandbanks to include the boat "Spray" which was the first commissioned boat for American Marine production. Following is the PDF or what ever. You will note immediately the historian roots of the "Spray" in the "Tenacious" pictured above. The Tenacious was build as the "Imp" in 1960 on Lake Union.WA.
Now again Good Night- Having too much fun here.

Al re your post #353 the lower picture. I snapped that boat recently and have posted a pic here on TF (post #12 on page 1). I had once thought Tenacious was a burned out GB w a new house on the old hull.
Averilla I've seen and she will probably not be saved. Building a new boat could be easier. Most boats like her become liveaboards for near penniless people in Alaska until the local harbormaster is too nervous to let them stay tied to the float.

Since we were talking about round ports or windows heres an interesting boat I saw in Craig. Hell bent for water tight integrity.

This one arrived at the marina today. Had to post it for Reuben's sake of course!

I don't know how old it is (there was an article on it in PMM a number of years ago) but it looks brand new.

That boat Teddi Bear seems to have inspired at least this cruise-ship company.

I was down at Fisherman's Terminal helping a friend with his boat Saturday and came across these two "baby" trawlers! Each about 15-16' long. The newer looking one was actually a very nice little boat.

The newer one looks like a Ranger Tug 21. Nice little boats. The company now makes tugs at 21, 25, 27, 29, and 31 feet.
