Thanks. I checked out the URL you sent. Could not find a line drawing nor dimensions etc.

Looks like the perfect boat for a slow turning engine and propeller

You could say... those OH's would not only freeze over but also freeze upward; sorta like a pyramid-mountain, ever gaining altitude as the winter continues!

Not so interesting as boats go, except for some welcome broker frankness. Real reason to post is the pic of the very cute boat hound with amazing ears.

I guess I have a thing for old work boats. Way too late in my life for a wood boat but I still like them.

Mart,
What happened to your GB Alaskan?
Kinda glad you didn’t get one of those big old wood boats.

I gave up the Alaskan dream. I’m glad I didn’t get one either. It would probably still be on the hard and I would be trying to figure out what to do.

Gotta love those old engines and a manual reversible prop.
So very simple. Not too particular about the fuel.

Too Cool! With reduction gear... what's that chug-chug baby diesel engine turning her big prop at idle... 100 rpm?

I know what you're talking about. Those really low revving diesels sound so nice chugging around the bays and harbors.

That workboat lookalike

Thanks BruceK for pointing me to:

https://www.boatsonline.com.au/boats...r-sedan/222091

I am talking to the dealer tomorrow, after having had an hysterically funny conversation with him by email, with me trying to convince him I wasn't a scammer—because I was emailing from the UK, and not able to phone him because I do not have a local SIM. My partner and I are teaching workshops here. She does have a local SIM in her phone, so the dealer and I will chat tomorrow.

This boat is just bare bones, really, but to me good-looking bones: no autopilot, a single instrument (I am guessing that Lowrance is a sounder, but I could be wrong). It looks like a very good hull (it's only 15 years old, young for a wooden trawler). Clearly it needs a bottom clean and antifouling, but the dealer is a marina and boat service shop too, so that should not be a problem. And the rot in the gunwales aft look pretty simple to fix. This might seem odd, but the fact that she has no navigation instruments is a plus for me: I can install exactly the instruments I want, and as we know, they get better and less expensive every year.

I like the flush decks at the bow, the generous scuppers, and the simple layout. I know the engine type well, and I will be inspecting her when I get back with a mechanic guru friend when I get back. I will be asking the dealer a bunch of questions, but I do like the look of her, I must say.

On another note: I pulled out of the Coral Queen deal because closer inspection of her below-decks revealed an immense amount of work, and I do not want to spend my sabbatical only working on a boat!

The price is wildly optimistic but it has potential
