That's the difference between me and you-- you can actually build stuff like this. Well, there are more differences, like the fact that you are about 6'5" and outweigh me by maybe 100lbs, but all that notwithstanding, you can build stuff.
Do you have a mock up of the proposed paravane idea for your boat? I know you do, Mr Photoshop.
First I have to pay Tad to spec-out the rig, but he already warned me that it would have to be quite substantial cuz the initial stability of the boat is too good and would really put torque on the rig. I guess it would either be a lot of small tubing or a perhaps less big tubing. The photos shows what 6" schedule 40 alum. would look like with 4" poles. I dunno, man.

And you must be confusing me with Hopcar. This old body isn't even 6'2 anymore, but of course after the Christmas pounds I just put on, I sure feel like I'm carrying the extra 100 lbs..

Someone mention anchors?

I only use a 10lb Danforth knock off on my 1000' luxo ocean liner. Anyone have any better suggestions? She kind of drags in a -1 knot wind. Oh and I also set at a 2:1 scope. In a 1000' of water.

Vaporetto

I'm every now and then in Venice due to job reasons. Naturally they have quite an array of various vessels there. The ordinary water busses - Vaporetto - are probably my favourites. Especially the older and sleeker versions move seemingly effortless through the water. They accelerate up to operational speed in no time and they look very fit for their purpose. No ocean passage boats though.

I've seen occasional private owned Vaporettos no longer in city service. Some rebuilt to workboats, but also to house(ish) versions.

Vaporetto water buses are great & so convenient there.

I love the very beautiful wooden limo water taxis that ply their trade in Venezia.

I took pic #1 in Venezia underway from VCE airport to the city, pics #2 & #3 at... lake Tahoe, CA side.

Drooling over it would make the decks too slippery/messy. lol Wish I could drool over the gunnels for bout ten years of cruising!

Art,
I'd love to know what kind of paint they used for the name on Point Reyes. While the rest of the boat seems to need some TLC, that name stands out brightly

Did the designers (had to be more than one, it looks like it was done by a committee) of the Sea Piper 35 give any thought to how messy Change of Watch would be in foul weather? Both the forward 'stateroom' and the pilothouse would be dripping wet.

Hi Jim

I thought same thing and sure would like to know the paint brand! Bet it's a custom mix by the sign-painter that applied the name. May last longer painted on (soaked into) wood than other materials

Maybe I could climb aboard to see if there's a line chart in the fishing boat's glove box; listing all that worked on her - LOL However, afraid I'd fall on my asss as rotten wood disintegrated.

For multi colored hand painted name on our boat... Nine years ago I hired a young, accomplished sign painter who was famous in the area for doing beautiful supermarket and retail store signs, both indoor and out door.

Wife and I designed the boat name, he did further artistic input on a stencil he created. I asked him how long he expected the boat name's bright colors to last before fading and what type paint he was using. His answers: I use highest grade automotive pin stripe paint and mix in hardeners as well as adherence glues for painting on fiberglass. I doubt you will see fade for at least a couple decades; sign should last in good condition for many decades, baring scrapes on it and that I make sure to not pressure wash or use harsh cleaners like Comet. That was ample guarantee for me!

Our boat sign was the kid's (mid 20's) last private paint job before enlisting into the Navy as a career. Hope he and cute girl friend have great life. He did get back to me about a year later by email and asked for a photo... I sent him a few.

In the nine years since hand-painting there has been no fade. Couple thin line scrapes, chink marks etc from things on swim step. For occasional touch up... we purchased a full color array package of Testors model paints in the tiny sized glass jars with metal caps. Keep the array and a few small artist brushes in bottom draw of master stateroom bureau.
