Ok - fixed mine. GL40 is still in the shop, with tape around the bootstripe.

Greetings,
Mr. D. Interesting indeed BUT one look at the ER spaces immediately puts her in the "lipstick on a pig" category IMO. For that level of decoration, I would expect the ER to be pristine but it seems the machinery is in a distant second place. Says a LOT to me, in any case...

Probably just a floating cocktail lounge. Taken out for "exercise" once a year, whether it needs it or not.

I was led to believe the Hats had built in FRP tanks. If it is 2 tanks at 330 gallons each, that is not too bad. I doubt if the tanks were changed from original.

Elco???

The Trumpy thread reminded me of a yacht I snapped a couple of pictures of ca. 1974.

I was with my Dad, in Florida, at the time, while he was looking at one of the new Alaskan 45's, which he ended up nixing because they were still using wood. Broker/Dealer was John Matthews at Donnell Yachts. I suspect some on TF may remember him, as GB were one of his specialties.

The yacht in the photo, according to the marina, was only a few weeks away from being towed out to sea and sunk. Apparently, the owner was over a year behind on paying for dockage and was AWOL.

I'm not really sure what this yacht is/was. Elco comes to mind, but I'm not sure if that's because it was mentioned or because I noticed similarities to other pictures of vintage yachts I'd seen. Being the teenager I was, I really pushed Dad to buy it as a fixer-upper project, but he wouldn't hear of it. Smart man, indeed...

It's all yours!!!
Think of the heat load if docked in the FL summer time. ZOWNS!!
That exterior and interior of the boat makes me wanna throw up.

Yup, a clothing designer hence the pimping out.
What a total waste of a good boat.

Man, I'd hate to be standing under that chandelier in rough seas!


BTW, curious how difficult it is to pull out the engines on a Hatt53 - are there easily accessible hatches above each engine? I always thought it would be nice to pull out those 8V's and replace them with a pair of 3-71's. Even though it is far from being a displacement hull, it would make long range coastal cruising alot more civilized.

Maybe if it had a different hull color and the interior was not a black motif.

Chandelier looks like a sea urchin...

No disrespect to you, the love for your boat or Ed Monk, but to put the genius that was Jack Hargrave in that box is beyond preposterous.

There's a good read on how the Hatts came to be here:

No disrespect taken... Oscar... O' great luver of Hatteras boats!

And, no disrespect here to you either. Just, don't get your feathers too much in a ruffle over boat designer/builder comparisons. Please understand that I was not comparing apples to apples nor oranges to oranges in regard to Hatts vs Tolly... in that the word "basically" that I used in my sentence holds a broad span of conjecture to any position one may like to affix... regarding anything mentioned. Size difference and general hull form similarity was all that I implied.

I would like to add. I have worked on Hatts in boat yards and work on my Tolly when needed. I do understand the high and low points of each.

Thank you for supplying link to a Hatt site.

Finally this retro

"look like" is now under offer
Nice retro look little too high profile for me .
Now the buyer must fix her but good volume and old fashion carpentry (carpentry ?) say wood work.

Yes, really beautiful, but why does "retro look" always mean dark cave-like interiors??? Perhaps back in the early retro'th century the people had larger eyes so needed a darker environment to live in?

I will admit, there is nothing not to like on the boat. The interior is fantastic. I will also admit, it is too much boat for me.
Dont be hasty to sell the boat.
I wish you great good fortune on finding a WORTHY buyer.
