Yes that's true but I see nothing special about them. Perhaps someone could lead me into the light.
In SE Alaska they all but worship a C Dory sized boat called a Parker. I assume they are well built and they have a very nice looking cabin but beyond that I see nothing special about them either.

Yes as are most Spira boats. I like them but of course they no doubt pound quite a bit or worse but they take verry little power for good moderate speed. This is what I like most about them. Don't like the bow swooped up (much too high IMO) but it's cute/salty and prolly sells boat plans. I prefer the Spira boats w much more flare like the "Cariolina" boats. All of them are easy builds and they don't get much more difficult to build as bigger boats. There's a "V" bottomed version of some boats but still close to a flat bottom. The 15' Carolina is just about the same as the 26' boat. These boats are really easy to build compared to the very popular 26' Bartender (for example). My favorite Spira boat is the 26' Key Largo.

Hi Eric,

Rough comparisons would have a Tolman Skiff about 1/2 the weight and 1/2 the cost of a Parker, plus you get all the hairy chested bragging rights of building it yourself.

Murray Yea I can't believe the prices they want for those Parker's. I would't buy one at 1/4 the price.
You see them in Canada too?

Parker's on BC's north coast? Nope...mostly Sea Sport and Arima's in boats of that ilk.

Depending on design, yes a flat bottom unless using an inboard engine, which I would.


I looked deeply at the Tolman deigns. I'm not a fan of the stitch-n-glue method. I prefer solid framing over plywood bulkheads.

There is no perfect boat...just one with the least amount of compromises relative to its use/owner.

One of the few boats that can be identified w/o a picture of her bottom from aft.
Steep buttock line.

I am told she's starting to bleed so not looking as good outside as the pics.
Inside should still be fine.

I reckon if you treated her like a steel workboat, not a superyacht and got someone like GT Mac to do their magic it'd still be good value.

Transworld Fantail 50

Allegedly, there were only 9 of these pilothouse fantails built. I was surprised to read it is just another Taiwanese Tub and like most TTs, it could use some TLC and maybe teak deck replacement. Still like the looks of the fantail.
