John Deere, or lugger power, all the windows were old portholes from some old European barge, etc. It was a really cool boat. The guy had done a ton of work.

There was some sort of incongruous circular seating apparatus on the cabin top; looked like a kiddie toy. Did you see it?

Right, not a Feadship. Probably a De Vries Lentsch design, built in Holland or Italy. Alternately it might be a Benetti designed and built in Italy, but I lean toward the De Vries.

Yes, he had chairs mounted in a circle on the roof of the pilot house. It was kind of goofy.

Was their music playing and one more person than the number of chairs?

No it wasn't. Wilmington, NC. That would have been quite a trip!

I guess trailerable is not out of the question, however.

Was the boats name Wyoming? Guess not. Very similar in appearance former oysterman down here. I for some reason thought that it was at Lulu's in OB. No

Not clear Marty,
"Like a 46"
You're pronouncing Summer is a GB46 ?
As I recall someone thought it was something else in the past.
But from the pics it's hard to find a difference.

Eric I think Summer is a Grand Banks Alaskan 46 . They made a 46 and a 49 . I like both . They are very similar .

I've seen a few of these rare Fisher Trawlers over the years, but never a nice example until now.

WOW! I've long admired their motorsailers, had no idea there were trawlers. Wish I were in the market.

I was on one a number of years ago. I think the term that best describes them is "an economy of space". The Fishers whether power or sail, try to make too many spaces or staterooms. The spaces end up feeling small and cramped. I guess that's ok for sailors, but probably why the trawlers weren't a hit.

Very astute. I always liked the cocoon-feeling of my sailboats; my wife didn't. Which may explain why she spent four uncomplaining weeks on my trawler this summer.
