Greetings,
Mr. NS. Was there a launch ramp beside the house, just out of the picture by any chance?

Nope. Right in town. That said everything in Uclulet is right by the ocean.

I like it...... other the the keel shoe & rudder configuration. That looks a little scary to me.

The positioning of the keel cooling tubes is a bit exposed as well.

There was a thread on that boat a few years ago when it was for sale. Some serious design flaws in the modifications.

interesting trawler

Clever hinged anchor platform, and pulpit arrangement. Note the after-market mast, and boom. Dana Point Harbor.

Getting back to boats that are actually interesting .... GREAT

Ted I remember that IG. We had a good discussion as I recall.

I wonder why mpre do'nt make articulated bow pulpits. Think of the money you'd save every month.

Pretty Grand Banks

While walking the docks in Dana Point, and looking at interesting brokerage boats, my wife and I noticed this attractive Grand Banks. My wife asked how much$$, and I replied probably around one twenty five. Later when I looked on line I was surprised to find it was under forty.

This one is interesting. Check the quad-maran near the end.

I wonder how long before they make it in a trawler configuration. Actually, maybe that is. I recall the "Trawler" definition thread. LOL

Lots of moving parts to maintain and rebuild in that suspension.

Could be good in some commercial / law enforcement operations. For general pleasure boaters - I think not... as it becoming a much used boat design technique... but maybe, one never really knows till the sales-market promoters get done!

USS Enterprise being towed away from Puget Sound Naval Shipyard this morning. She is destined to be scrapped. Just out of frame are tugs Lindsey Foss, Henry Foss, Andrew Foss, and offshore supply ship Dino Chouest.

Oh my! I could live on that baby!

Does two engines and a sail seems silly?

Not if you don't have two out of the three and you're hundreds of miles from help
