That would be awesome from a convenience perspective! And no worries about someone flushing too much. I sometimes wish I'd had a custom tank made when I replaced mine. Could have fit something like 80 or 90 gallons instead of the 70 I have, but no off the shelf tank that big fit the space.

Here`s an "interesting boat" that is permanently moored at our favourite anchorage. Probably about 50ft and possibly made of ferro

I THOUGHT that might be the case, but still, 4.25 nm/gal seems to be pretty well, let's just say "optimistic!"

Looks kind of like a planing version of the Nordhaven 43.

Not that unrealistic. At 7 knots, my boat gets 3.5 nautical miles per gallon. Mine isn't a full displacement hull and weighs significantly more than this one. This boat is lighter and probably has a more fuel efficient hull.

No - not abandoned - we were there last weekend and there were guys on board -doing a bit of maintenance by the looks -scrubbing the hull.

I just think it has a bit of "character" makes me think it would suit Capt Jack Sparrow.

I wonder if the CG had a look at it.

Looks like an old lifeboat hull.

Safer than the other duck boats. They have a dismal track record.

Sea Crust

Sea Crust was spotted in West Sound Marina on Orcas Island in the San Juans.

I'm calling it a sailboat to trawler conversion. I gotta give him credit for creativity if not for execution.

Despite it being my favorite thing beyond anchors, that being a sailboat conversion.
First thing I’d need to know is all about the keel. W/O the mast this boat will probably be rolling one way or another all or most all the time. And if she gets beam waves in sync w her natural roll period ..... one deck awash and just after .. the other.

But w the right fish she’d be just wading through 10’ seas.

She look a bit weathered so knowledge of her motion are probably well known.

Oh but hats off for Portage Bay for posting a genuinely interesting boat. Most are just an overt expression of the power of the dollar. Or again big or “to die for”.

Well what's interesting to you may not be to others. For instance the boat your fawning over is completely irrelevant to me and a cursory glance was all I gave it. I find the custom trawlers interesting, sometimes they have big prices.

There is no perfect boat, just one with the least amount of compromises for the owner.

And some men wonder why boats are often named after women.
