And, most females don't wonder why men often name boats after women. They know exactly why!

How many times have you heard a boat referred to as him or he... she or her is clear explicative for most boats' souls.

Interesting is interesting. If it’s ordinary like a production Nordhavn it’s not interesting. Perhaps people that find just megabuck boats across the board Interesting aren’t interesting themselves.
And the criticism that I expressed about that conversion clearly isn’t “fawning”.

Lighten up. He didn't say he liked the boat but rather and interesting conversion.

Thanks for telling me what's interesting to me, I could literally care less about that cobbled together mess, nothing interesting about it to me, but I didn't crap on it like you did regarding other posts. Haven't seen a production model on this thread in a long time. Unsubscribe if you don't like the boats that come up here.

Sure would be nice if it were stabilized.
Just too big for me.
No pictures of the wheel house interior.

Well now, my #8975 stirred up some dust. Here's another we spotted at West Sound Marina. An absolutely beautiful conversion from a commercial fishing boat to a recreational trawler.

Built by Fred Wahl in 1963. Those who know west cost working timber boats will know the Wahl name. She was converted to recreational use by a Vancouver BC shipyard owner. She has a rebuilt Gardener Diesel for power. The conversation took 17 yrs to complete. She may not be your cup of tea but to my eye she's a work of art. From Wahl's original construction to her conversion.

I don't have any pics. I was too busy chatting the owner up. Here's a link to an old listing before he bought her.

A nice "Classic" Lady !

Ok, ok, I said We are looking for a boat shorter, with less draft, air draft, beam, weight
But she is so Classic than I


May be not enough draft for the high, a good "rolling boat" but

In many years of searching through boat ads, I never came across this model of Marine Trader. Odd, rare, and with an impressive equipment list. Didn’t notice any ER pics though. MT was always known for their exterior wood...no shortage here.

This baby has the plumb bow to drive right through waves.
Seems this bow type was brought back from the old days and is gaining popularity on several lines of new boats.

Not sure if this one has been posted, but we were docked next to this yacht a couple weeks ago in Friday Harbor. Lady Bahi, was originally called Bread and built for a very successful baker.

We saw that thing in Friday Harbor last summer.. it is all sorts of ugly in person. Strange thing was the hull was not very fair and with the dark color it looked pretty crappy.
Looked like it was designed by committee

Thank you rochepoint,
Didn’t think of electric. I prefer engines. Interestingly they called the motors engines .......

Oh I get it. I thought she was electric because her engines power was expressed in “kw”. I saw this on FB and figured out how to snatch the picture. My Wi-Fi skills are limited but I get by. Should figure out “face time” phone calls as I may need that to talk to my doctor.

I’ve always liked the plumb bow. Not the axe bow. Yes Nickair the plumb bow and newer sterns are usually in the quest for the effects of WLL. Dosn’t seem that narrow is coming back though. That would have a much greater effect on fuel burn economy.

The ship in lwarden's post reminded me of a ship we encountered not long ago:

Dannebrog, the Danish royal yacht.

Once we finished mooring at Sønderberg, in Denmark a couple of years ago, the Queen of Denmark apparently learned we were there and decided to join us ;-)

It’s a really impressive, vintage ship…and it's amazing to be able to see it up close (from the exterior only). The queen uses this ship to visit miscellaneous royal castles around Denmark during the summer months every year.

For most of the year, the ship is anchored near the entrance of Copenhagen's harbor, which is only about 12 miles from our home port in Sweden.

You can read more about it, including technical facts here:
