Itís a really nice looking blue water boat. Reminds me of a N46. Maybe they borrowed the design from Garden?

Just cant imagine how much drag that rudder thruster would create

Would be possible to use a feathering prop to reduce it I guess. First time I see this but can imagine some benefit for handling the boat at very low speed, would give something like a pod.

Feathering props are poor "back'er uppers". I would not mess with it.

We put a 3 bladed Max-Prop on our last boat. In reverse it has 80% more power than the fixed prop we removed.

That said... if you stayed in fairly calm waters the ride looks like fun.

I only had time to skim the other pages presented on this boat.
I didn't see a mention of bow and or stern thruster nor did I see the hull material. One head for all those berths?

So for now, I will say, you are just a little bit crazy.

It is listed with Pilot House King and I couldn't find it on YW. Maybe an exclusive listing.

Has a 24v Vetus bow thruster.

It mentions cold molded so I guess that means fiberglass over wood.

2 cabins and only one head. That sucks for a 57' boat with an almost 19' beam. REAL houseboats have 2 heads!

That Bill Garden boat was written up in Passagemaker a bunch of years ago. Wish I had kept that volume but no, it caught the donation box. To bad the name doesn't show in the photo.

Post 5027

I saw it maybe 6 yrs ago in Malaspina Str., He south bound, me north bound.
Darn fine looking vessel.

Remembering some details from the article:
Main prop drive was belts off the Cat engine /gear box. Apparently worked well. An idler sheave allowed adjustment which once initially done was seldom needed.
Variable pitch main prop.
Rudder thruster was hydraulic and worked as expected. May have caused some drag but was not a factor. It could actually drive the boat at a slow speed in case of main prop damage as long as the engine worked.
Initially built of cedar and then covered in 1/2" fiberglass.
Lots of other neat details. A lot of thought was put into that vessel.

Don't quote me on it anymore as typical memory but it impressed enough I didn't forget the boat, just some of the details.

If really interested look up that Passagemaker article or ask for a copy, I'll bet the owner has it.
