Kind of a rough industrial finish that I complimented with galvanized cleats and hardware when I finished her. Thick material, reported to be at least 1/2 inch thick minimum. I believe it. Smooth ride, reportedly due to flex similar to a wood hull. Doesn't have the loud slap from waves like GRP and aluminum. Did I say mine is an EXACT duplicate of an early 15' Boston Whaler. Obviously used one for a plug for the mold.
Got any photos to share with us? I'd like to see it.

Another steel boat

The interior doesn't look very fancy and almost amateurish but the hull and mechanicals seem very well thought out. Wasn't able to access the Oct 2010 edition of Passagemaker since I don't subscribe and I wanted to understand the pros and cons of having a hydraulic driven genny. Wouldn't that put a lot of load on the main power plant? Also, she lacks a fly bridge.

Interesting bow, in that it almost looks like the aluminum riverboats we have around here...must loosen molars when pounding into a head sea.

All rope rode?

Racy looking boat. Pushing heck of a bow wave. Not enough upward rake in the bow for rough water. Nice lake boat. I would not like to encounter big seas in that model.

I'm pretty sure this is fg over wood construction. Covey Island is known for their FG/wood builds. I don't think they build a fiberglass only hull. Kind of misleading by the broker if this is the case. There is nothing at all wrong with this construction and Covey Island has a great reputation.

If you visit BC and are worried about dragging your anchor in a viscous wind, be sure to give me a wave as I'll be the one in a lawn chair beside his boat on a drying flat safely waiting for a weather window

That said...

I never look for too rough water; also, do my best to avoid it... but... I have been caught unexpectedly in water that was more rough than expected and that I felt was not good for the boat of the time, at that time.

My definition of "too rough water" = water conditions that could create catastrophe if pilot makes TOO BIG a handling mistake with the boat of that time or if the boat simply IS NOT designed to itself handle conditions that may suddenly come to hand!

I live in the premise of plan for the best but always be equipped to withstand the worst if required.

That sleek, racy looking boat is a pure pleasure to view. Still, I'd not like be aboard in "too rough" water!!

Arkup livable yacht based price starts at just under $3 million for the technology-free base model, which does not include the electric propulsion, solar panels, batteries or hydraulic pilings."

Gnarly, hairy chested, Benford designed steel hull junk rig motorsailer. (Interesting how lines to control junk rig can be handled inside the pilothouse)

Something about it makes me think of European TF member Longcours.62(apologies if I mispelt the name).

Too big engines, too large window, too high, too large, too,too and finally we bought her !?
But clearly we prefer our basic, simple Long-cours 62 but the new owner of her, unfortunately thinking exactly same and don't want sale her back to us :-)
