On Photo 55, does it look like the charger wiring was done with Romex house wiring or is it my eyes?

The tinned stranded two conductor wire made by Ancor that I use for AC looks just like Romex.

Funny thing I was looking at this boat in the last couple of weeks. Saw one pull into Westview a few years back. Had a family living on board. Kind of searched them out ever since. Make a great liveaboard boat.

Always admired these boats. There is a smaller one locally, but its a ugh, V-Drive, and a bit overpriced if I recall. Elco of course was one of the makers of WWII PT boats.

Greetings,
Mr. 78. NOPE! Don't want another wooden boat BUT that out of water hull picture (6/10) is gorgeous. WHAT lines! Wonder what cruising and top speed are?

Wood boats are a big PITA but they have something other boats don't, an indefinable something, not quite a soul.

If I had enough time (and $ but more question of time) this is the kind of boat I would own. I love these woodies. Trumpy are one of my favorite, their lines are so nice and "chic"!

Late 50' / mid 60's I was in love with Elco and Egg Harbor wooden boats.

Couple of slips down, Fred and Flo Plaut had a really nice 1948 Elco. I believe it was 34 or 35 feet long...maybe 36?? anyway - The Plauts were a kick in butt; young at heart to say the least!. They loved their Elco... so did I.

This is, for me, the most perfect boat. It's what I was looking for for two years before I bought the Cheoy Lee 52' m.y. Damn.

I saw one with a raised steering station and windshield fitted at the aft bulkhead of the house. A sort of mini flybridge with two helm chairs and a Bimini. Very similar to what they do to Lagoon cats. Anyway it had a blue hull with gold trim and was just drop dead gorgeous. That was about 10 years ago and I have been looking for something similar since. I was thinking of it as the perfect trans pacific yacht. But after my heart issues I had to let go of that dream and stick to near coastal cruising. But it is a big reason why I ended up with my Cheoy Lee Gentleman's Yacht.

Interesting boats

Yeah someone needs to buy that.

Would look better without the fly bridge. [emoji41]

Edit: Just saw it is located in the Caribbean. That's interesting. Not many pocket trawlers in the Caribbean due to the rougher seas I would guess?

IMO: On a pleasure boat... looks ain't everything, by any means! Comfort and fun and views while cruising are very important parts to the "pleasure" boat equation.
