The boat had 27 people on board. If all of them moved to one side of the boat to spot a whale, that in itself could capsize the boat. Add a beam wave from the opposite side of the boat and that could also make it happen.

At least in the article there was no mention of everyone going to one side, witness testimony would have highlighted that fact...so taking that out of the equation, in normal sea conditions, should a boat of that size flip over ? I have heard of rouge waves but it doesnít sound like anyone mentioned an unusually high wave..seems odd .

I am genuinely curious and surprised that a boat that size can flip without severe weather, overloaded, or a rouge wave..

He has very classic designs. I think his lower hull form influence came from Higgins landing craft. They had a V forefoot with a tunnel hull aft and a barge on top. Very cleaver boat design.

Corinthian catamarans is made down in that area. It could be one of their hulls with a homemade cabin on top

Search the forum for "Leviathan" and look for posts by Tad Roberts and you'll get some well founded insight into what may have gone wrong.

Welcome aboard Vivante. She was not on the market long.
There is another IG36 member in Tasmania. Plus 2 in Sydney,one in Brisbane. You could research the TF Manufacturers section for the Halvorsen/IG subsection, lots of info there. Feel free to share any queries, someone should be able to help(or commiserate). Your Cummins engines are not a common install but I think, a fortunate find.

Thanks, hereís what I got out of Tad and the reports...just because something floats, doesnít mean itís stable...what a shame...The original boat before conversion was low and lean..

At least that one looks right though it still has a bit more cabin up front for my liking.
Ours has a bit more cabin down aft for my liking, well she doesn't really, she just needs an extra 10 ft.

There go my good friends Dave & Emma on their Fishboat conversion Midnight Sun. I can't think of anything on that boat that isn't done Right.
Original build was 1938, fished until 2001, when Dave bought her. Spent about 5 years on the conversion, with obviously successful results.
She is attending the Seattle Yacht Club opening day on Saturday, so just touring till then. Then back to Vancouver for our own Royal Vancouver Yacht Club opening day the following Saturday.

It looked like a fishing/trawling boat, but so good I figured it must have started life as is. A conversion after all, very attractive too.

What boat is this?

Out last week in one of the canals off Tampa Bay in St. Petersburg, spotted this vessel. At first I noticed the awnings over the portlights, thinking, "how perfect for the south Florida sun."

The tiny awnings appeared to be fiberglass, but I cannot be certain.

Then as we passed by the boat I became more intrigued with the rest of the boat. A sugar scoop stern on a trawler. Is she a motor sailor without the mast?

Anyone have any idea what brand of boat this might be?

Schucker I think. I don't remember them having a sugar scoop stern though.

Nice boat. Awnings work well for shade intended... I'm sure. May be a bit of shin knocker when walking to bow.

This is a sail boat conversation or perhaps a de-masted motor sailer. Look at photo 1 and 2. You can see the mast rigging tie-ins on the side hull.
Also explains the sugar-scoop too.
