I assume that huge level on Ehkoli is for reversing. She's got to be a monster to run. Still, I get a little dreamy about spending the rest of my days trying to keep her floating or running or both.

Not going to happen.

Maybe I could get Leo to come over for a week from Tally Ho and just give her a jolly good once over.

Had this one beside us for a few days

If money was no object I reckon that'd be the one.

I think they may have got a bit confused about the numbers

Midnight Lace Rumrunner

But for all the brightwork, I could really like this 1984 Midnight Lace Rumrunner 44 and the price seems reasonable. The broker claims it was built by Cheoy Lee in Hong Kong. Fuel capacity of 200 gals seems a little light but I could live with it. No pics of the engine room and with two DD 8.2L V8s and an 11' beam, I can imagine no room at all to do maintenance. But she is pretty!

OOOH! That's HAWT!
In another life I would buy it, fill the engine space with batteries, and make it a 6-knot hybrid-electric picnic-ish boat.

Pretty boat, but I learned my lesson on bright work when I owned a Nordhavn. No thanks.

They are sexy boats.. look even better underway at 15kts! The front cockpit is a interesting touch. I will never forget the afternoon one ran up on the beach at the Santa Barbara Yacht club while the guy and his girlfriend were busy taking a "nap" below!

[QUOTE=Boat;778756]Ha! Good catch. We all know where E-Coli comes from.

But, Uh Oh. You may have made a cultural PC violation. "Ehkoli is a Chilcotin word for "Whale".

That boat has a very REAL history.

Ship details


The engine could go in a museum

Despite the historical aspects, this boat has seen too many years of maintenance deferrals. If it came with the first 5 years of cost of recovery, say $1,000,000 to do the catch up on maintenance, it might then be worth $100,000.
As is, the poor guy who owns it now will die before he sells it, then the Gov will eat the cost of breaking it up and cleaning up after it.

Sounds like youíre smarter than those that do brightwork. Itís a choice not a level of intellect. If you want to go boating in a UPS truck itís your choice.

If you feel attacked .. donít be. This comment is aimed mostly at a a few hundred others that have made essentially the same comment. And your boat is probably better looking than most despite itís lack of brightwork.

I think you're right about the maintenance deficit. We can't say without looking, but even with charity and sweat equity it could absorb $100K, easy. Forget making it "nice". It is a long way to roll back that clock.

That other boat with the DD 8.2s. I have no experience with the 8.2 but have heard nothing but bad about them. I am guilty of second hand prejudice.

Here's another eBay give away in Florida:

From the description it could have a bad battery terminal or a locked Lehman diesel engine.

And the RADAR is aimed at .....

Top sides are a personal choice.
The hull design is important.

I'd blow that cabin right off and rebuild. Hull looks to be a fine candidate for a costal boat.

That's what happens when a house carpenter thinks he can build a boat cabin.

Not having brightwork doesn't mean you don't appreciate it. Most people have a limited amount of free time and have to make a choice between cosmetic maintenance and actually using the boat. Not all of us feel the primal need to sand and varnish or spend a thousand hours reinventing the anchor.

A go-anywhere boat…as long as the water is more than 12' deep. Quite the little ship.
