Here's a nice little boat with potential. Webbers Cove Trawler 34. I would be interested in it if I weren't involved in so many projects here at home. I could bring her up to my place in the upstate, give'er a good working over, and really be set when my son goes off to the air force in 2021, possibly even sooner.

What is gnarly about it?

The boat in the video just cruises on through like nothing is happening. Doesn't seem the least bit bothered.

Lake St Clair between Detroit and Canada has a wind tide also.

Still do. Saw several last summer in BC.

I dearly love Willards, but this 40 is really an unusual example.

Someone has lavished that boat with many, many hours of attention!

Do they normally hold 1,310 gallons of fuel?

Short video about the 100 year old halibut schooner, Vansee, which is still fishing halibut to this day:

The Uber of water taxies

Sorry, this isn't a trawler but it certainly is an interesting concept. Wonder if it will ever make it to North America?

Dude, the PNW has nothing on the St. Lucie Inlet on a bad day. Oops, that's near your boat.

I used to own a 65ft Burger in steel. Very classic styling. 65 years after construction it still holds its own. However it was poorly executed for maintenance purposes.

I have wondered about that. I knew that the alloy hulls had longterm issues, but not the steel ones too. It's a shame since they are all such beautiful boats, I especially like the lounge over the engine room that most seem to have. Who was their designer?

It was a Hargrave definitely by the styling. It's a shame that today the new yachts look exactly like all the other white yachts in the world.

The problem for maintenance was all the closed-off areas which were impossible to access. Plus the older boats were not epoxy primed. The newest owner of my boat has done a fantastic job of upgrading her though for his charter business.

Spot about 300 miles north of us called Shoalwater bay
US military loves coming over and blowing stuff up there.

https://goo.gl/maps/b17TPSgmByu

Has 30 ft tides and quick turnover of water
https://tides.willyweather.com.au/ql...y/stanage.html

Have sailed through there many times and very interesting when you get 30 knots of wind against that sort of flow.

Throw saltwater crocodiles and monster sharks into the mix and its not for the fainthearted.
But the mudcrabs, fishing and solitude is outstanding.

Don't know if this has been posted before, but this is a pretty neat Trimaran.
