Hi,

Based on my findings, the question is how well the steel pre-treated, primed and actual painting is handled in the new build stage. A steel boat of high quality requires only the latest treatment in 15-20 years if you want it to be new.

Exaple https://www.yachtworld.com/boats/200...iotop-3014559/


Build 2000 and new paint 2015 and like new outsides

Or 1966 build steel motor yatch http://approvedboats.com/co-brokerag...lands-5412656/

Greetings,
Mr. SoF. Not scared of "running rust" in the least. Aside from some cabinetry and the flooring, pretty well everything needs refurbishment to make the vessel half way presentable. Aged electronics, most, if not all widows/ports need rebedding and most probably re-gasketing, wiring and plumbing appear questionable...or maybe it's just me.

Question: What is the benefit of (on the railing) to slope the verticals forward or only for visual appearance?

Funny you say that. One of the major visual differences between American Tugs (and new Nordic Tugs) and older Nordic Tugs is the sloped vs. plumb stanchions. Plumb look more stately to me.

IF the intend is to make the boat look faster, slope them aft. LOL

If it wasn't so expensive I would have my railing reworked for the stanchions were vertical to the deck.

I would have that boat shining like a new penny in a week with 2 of my deckhands working with me... I could live with less than yacht quality cabinets and flooring. Just give me solid a solid power plant (doesn't get simpler than a 4-71N) good steel and beefy ground tackle....18 months until retirement...

IMO, vertical along the length of a boat but then sloping forward at the bow to emulate and enhance the stem. Unless you have a plumb bow (stem) then straight.

I was looking at dinghys on Craigslist and ran across this beauty.


1962 Fiberglass Willard


Needs exterior paint, and probably some new wiring, but has new aluminum fuel tanks.


https://fortmyers.craigslist.org/lee...833125198.html



Such a timeless trawler.


(I do not know the seller, I am simply admiring a classic old boat.)

That's a perfect boat for me. It would take a while before I'd be ready to take her on though.

OMG - a Wet Boat!

Least one could do is spend hours to shamois it off ...

I think it is referred to as Hull #1. May have originally been named Hvaler used for engine testing. Delivered to Ole and Marge Johansen. Reading through the old news letters, I see that they didn't deliver the hull numbers in order. The delivered some of the the newer and higher priced orders before the older orders as a way to buy new tools and tooling to increase the production rate. Spy was ordered on May 14th and delivered (unfinished) on October 10th, 1981.

Another Nordy wannabe...

You guys in the PNW have it good. Well this steel hull/aluminum superstructure Real Ship pilothouse turned up on YW today. Except for the lack of flybridge rails and the price, I like it. Definitely would have chosen a darker blue for the hull. Oh, and a 60' covered slip in Anacortes Marina can be added for an additional $275K but I am clueless what they mean "for the Manatee".

I agree, one can almost hear the boat begging for a darker blue.

A fly bridge in AK, WA or the NE, better wear a huge coat and long underwear and mittens for fall and winter cruising, as you escape south.

LOL The price of the covered slip is more than I paid for my boat.

One nice thing about a bigger boat, you have lots of storage room. The owner can store stuff without thinking, "Is this really necessary."

On my little tiny 34ft boat, it has turned to "no room". Take something off before I put something on.

If I discovered more space, my sweet, beautiful, heart of gold, "house mouse" would put more of HER clothes in it, turn and say, "See, all gone." SMILE

Yes Bill,
Re post 96,
And it has a lot to do w aspect aspect ratio. Long narrow boats run very nicely indeed. But w a badly spaced headsea can be hard to deal with. But that applies to all boats.

Also in a narrow boat like that I’d rather have the helm on CL especially if the boat was small.

The picture shows a very attractive boat.

Hi,

I have no more thought about this, but I think the inclined posters are a little stronger on the railings that also have a pipe line up, for example, the railings are subjected to force from the bow of the bow, the sloping pole takes more force before it begins to bend vs 90 .

Re the Willard in post 08 ..

May be the best yacht hull ever created.
I wish my 30’ Willard had the form of the 36.
Much of my feelings are based on second hand input but most of it is from the hull lines. She’s a little chubby but I’ll bet the chubbyness pays back in spades in the way she rolls and generally behaves at sea or just underway. I really really like a lot boats but I lust after this one. Could be the perfect trawler .. well almost.

Wouldn't want this 42' Wahl, but sure would tip my hat and give a thumbs up as it went by. Would love a couple days aboard a boat such as this with my camera!
