And yes, I know, Manatees have often been the butt of my jokes on this site.
As a Manatee owner and great admirer of Willard 30 vessels, it’s high time we witnessed this design taken to the pinnacle of its dockside potential.

I kindda had a wild dream of going over to Queensland and taking a a look at this escape vehicle, sure looks like a great prospect for a live aboard. Not quite a Romsdal by any stretch of the imagination.

I'll be down right away to pick her up. LOL, I see the potential for a good offshore cruise and fish vessel. To bad, I gave up fishing in my 20's.

I'm confused by the very high bulwark on the port side. Why?

Interesting boats

Hmm. Ok. So it's just a facade? Are those lights? Something for fishing? I'm still confused.

I agree, it's an interesting boat!

Shelter from the elements. They haul on the stbd side, long hours in all conditions.
It’s not so much for comfort as it is to keep the fishermen and catch from washing overboard!

The port bulwark looks like it is canvas skinned with pipe supporting it.

Cardude, that has been cleared up for you, but this is an interesting boat to me. Some of the Icelandic fishing boats have asymmetrical cockpit coaming for protection from the extreme weather. Not enough protection for me.

I don't think it matters if the Willard/Manatee crossbreed is sterile....its too ugly for anything to mate with it anyway!!

I didn't mean 6l3s were in buses but that Gardner's were used in buses.
