You can see CQ has had additional timber added above the original deck line (what's the correct name for this?) and that this addition features scuppers from amidships back. She handles big seas gently and easily, and has been to Papua New Guinea and back.

In the conversion, I will remove the fish well and live bait tanks, and build the lowest aft cabin I can, to have the minimum windage. More to come.

The US DE lobster boats have about the same specs from what I have seen through research. There's a good forum on them as work boats and pleasure boats. https://downeastboatforum.com/

I kinda like the overall look of this one, but the bottom paint makes me wonder about the "custom" aspects.

In this case: I'm always interested to hear who's not interested cause I too am not interested and hope to help others become non interested... or at least less interested.

Regarding certain types engines and any type of i/o's out drives!

Greetings,
Mr. A. Another thing I noticed about the latest "interesting" boat is what appears to be big box store double hung windows above the galley sink. It's difficult to tell but the same type windows may be in the aft cabin area as well. Possibly NOT safety glass.

IF that IS the case, it raises further questions as to the overall build quality and the implication that it would be wise not to leave the dock.

Good eye. I missed that.

I also misread the price... $250k o_O

That appears to be a home build on a hull of unknown manufacturing. Not a lobster type Downeast hull for sure.

Railings looks weak. Prefer larger-diameter piping and at least two horizontal rails. One-inch diameter pipes don't make it with me.

Can you purchase windows with no safety glass now a days?

I got injured from slider glass door when 13 yrs. old. 130 +/- stiches. OUCH!

Worked out well in long run. Kept me off football and wrestling for one season each... with little to no swimming for one summer in LI, NY and other family cruising visits. Bummer!!

Greetings,
Mr. A. I haven't purchased window for many decades but I would be VERY surprised if safety glass was used in any of them even now. We're talking house windows here, NOT marine or automotive/RV.

RT - That's an interesting question on whether window safety glass is now mandatory. Might be a state to state legal thing. Maybe even federal??? I'll run a google some time to try and shed light on the situation.

Both our son and we did completely re-window and new slider door two houses in the last 5 years. Only things we found offered, here in moderate temperature Nor Cal, were double or triple pane safety glass with various tint choices. Encasement/frames were wood, plastic or metal.

In general, "safety glass" comes in two categories: tempered and laminated. Tempered is very strong and, when broken, results in small pieces with relatively few sharp edges. Laminated glass is sandwich construction, with an interior flexible membrane layer that generally keeps the pane intact after impact. Think car windshield.

The residential code for safety glass is, very generally, that a glass surface within a 3' radius any direction of a walking surface is required to be safety glass. Otherwise, not. But, most state and local codes have enough "enhancements" to confuse a Philadelphia lawyer.

A typical off the shelf window assembly will not be safety glass.

Check out Jacksonville,Fl craigslist. 2006 lifeboat (never used) for $4700. 36hp diesel. shipboard stby use only.

That's an interesting looking cat. I'd love to see more pics, if you ever run across it again.

RT,
It’s probably Lexan.
Very strong stuff.
Used on aircraft I think.

The back door window on Willy is Lexan.

A few years ago, I saw a similar RIB in Campbeltown, Scotland without the junk rig. Did not seem to have much living space, but as I thought about it, it was a good boat for the area. The boat had two outboards and could zip along pretty fast between ports or anchorages when the weather was good. The boat could be put on a trailer so during the off season it would be cheap/free to store.

Not an obvious boat to own but I think it worked well for the area.

Later,
Dan

This looks too good to be true. What do you make of this? https://seattle.craigslist.org/est/b...594636793.html

What's a LOLO? I see it may be the acronym for "Lift-On Lift-Off", but I still don't get it. Buyer has to furnish the site lift and transport?

Great looking boat. I wonder if the price is correct.
