I don't want to be the first to label Eric with a sexist title however, I had to magnify that photo to the max. Would never had Eric not tickle an old man's fancy for a peek. The "What" boat is a dandy as well, but the "tiger in blue jeans" upshots the "What".
Thank you Eric, and wife is doing well? Just asking.

Interesting boats from opposite ends of the speed spectrum.

Fantastic boat. One of Mr. Garden's best.

I like the "wet stack" exhaust on Katherine Jane.

Sorry about the hand Eric. I'd bet we all agree when a boat that looks right is right. Your example here fits that concept. And that she is underway is a plus!! Here we sit typing. AMJ

Nice boats Ben.

The 1st one looks a bit like a Willard 40 PH.

Ben: That 2nd and 3rd photo show a paravane design with no visible triangulation in the middle of the mast rig, and no center mast, I wondered if this might work, given the stresses. I sketched a simular rig for my own boat, but I figured the material would have to be extra heavy to stand the gussets and/or wire reinforcements. Do you know the boat and the material he used?

Pack Mule,

Care to speculate what this cost to build? $1 million?

Would be interested in how she performs on the Delta.
That 2' Draft would really come in handy, but would likely roll a bit with the tides and wind.

As for the Interesting Boats category, I submit a gorgeous Thompson44 I was privileged to tour. Lily Maria's owners are super -- Jean gave me a full tour, including the engine room. And it's a keeper for certain.



I wrote an article about her, with lots more photos. Janice142 article Life onboard Lily Maria (Thompson44 M/V)

Honest to goodness though, it's the engine room that had me envious. Colin has made it so simple, straightforward, and well, take a look for yourself. I'm impressed.

And Jean and Colin are both genuinely nice folks.

Great write-up on the 44 Thompson, Janice. It's good to see that someone took care of one of these examples. The only others I've seen were pretty rough.

This is a replica of one of the Columbus ships, the "Pinta". It had to take huge cojones to set sail across the ocean in such a small ship with nothing more than faith that there was land on the other side. The ship in the background is a replica of the "Nina" which was even smaller.

This is a replica of the Pinta's dingy, featuring a 15th century Mercury OB.

They sure get around, a couple or three years ago they were visiting Houma, Louisiana, about 2 miles from where I keep my boat. They were at the Downtown City Marina docks just off the Intracoastal Waterway for a few days. I brought my grandaughter and a classmate of her's to tour them. They were amazingly small. I did see some Raymarine nav gear onboard.
Tom, Loafs and Fishes is loking great!

Pine tar and/or linseed oil would be my guess.
