Likely this fine vessel has already made this thread but here is a photo I took of her this morning lying Sea of Cortez.
I think it my good fortune to now have been up close to three of these historic Romsdals. Delfin in Washington and Torsk in Australia, both in steel, and now OceanQuest in wood in Mexico.
I got a very nice tour from Bill today and he has done a ton of good stuff to this ship with a very colorful history. Cruise ready would be an understatement.

And if you have two anchors?
Or if you are in transit from one hemisphere to the other?
And if you are anchored on the equator?
Why cant we all just get along?

His anchor placement is different than mine...
... I think he should stay on his side of the equator...
... maybe we should build a wall...

Just saw this in my FB feed. 36ft with a 15ft beam. Looks like a commercial fishing boat hull.

That mast is kind of over the top....and I don't like the Nordy masts.

Anyone have any idea how big of a fuel penalty those massive rolling chocks would cost in fuel use?... those are HUGE

Bat wings may be the way to go if they are properly designed for your hull and your hull is sturdy enough and you are in the habit of grounding your boat on a falling tide.

That's a Nova Scotia lobsterboat hull.

I inquired of Nordic Tug without a response, as to the orthogonality of the indicated remark on this being the original.

Is her name Chloe? If so, she is the keel plug for 26 hulls. If it has a HIN, it should be 26000.

I don't know how much they hurt fuel economy but It sure does look out of place. With the beam and how low it is I can't see much of a gain in the stability side but I'm thinking they were more for the ability to beach it's self.

Maybe the Bay of Fundy with its 50 foot tides was a favourite playground, and semi-regular beaching made sense. A lot less fussing around than beach legs.

I used to own a 30' Cornish Crabber that had what was called "bilge keels' in the UK. They are nice when you have a significant tidal range.

The boat in question has weird appendages for sure, but 'bat wings' (as they call them on the listing) on the coast of BC are entirely different. Bilge keels usually stick out at an angle. These ones are unique as far as I can tell, being a cross between rolling chocks and permanent vertical beach legs.

They must have an effect on dampening the snap-roll of a hard chine hull...imagine the force required to pull two sheets of plywood sideways through the water.
