Is that an optical illusion that she's listing to Port?

There's a person standing on the portside in the cockpit.

Rotted from fresh water. Have no idea about the “other half”.

It was lumber from Mt. St. Helens, referring to a previous post. It was an installed deck, not laying in my yard.

Being a masonry and concrete material contractor for over four decades I have much interaction with doug fir lumber [from planed 3/4" x 3/4" in all size increments up to and including custom sawn rough hewn 6" thick x 16" wide x 24' long planks] I also have worked with pine lumber and a lot of different plywood grades. On a completely different level of woodworking... for a time in Maine [at Rockport Trapstock Mill - it burned in early 70's ] I helped build oak lobster traps. All the way from a big bolter saw slicing huge oak rounds into 1.25" thick very wide planks, then table saw cutting that into 1.25" x 1.25" strips and then the steaming and forced bending of those oak strips into suitable radius for lobster trap finished construction.

Before all my interactions [during decades of being an adult] with types of wood mentioned above - in LI, NY [during my teens] I worked at boat yards repairing/maintaining wood boats as well as working at a new boat builder in Rockland Maine. And, even before that... my dad and I often worked on the wood structures of our family's wood boats.

In other words I have plenty of experience with "wood".

Which brings me to make this statement: Wood is a great material, wood is good for many building purposes and wood can become a simply beautifully cut, molded, stained and surface finished product. However... wood can be a very laborious material to build with as well as to maintain. And, there are other materials [e.g. fiberglass, aluminum, steel] that rival or surpass wood for building ease, strength, speed and general durability/lastability - if these other materials each are of correct 'material mix" and are cared for properly.

That said: I believe that as long as the correct wood is available and a wood boat's ongoing maintenance/upkeep is never let to fall asunder for too long... an originally well constructed wood boat can nearly forever be kept alive and in good condition!

Cheers!! Art

She's a beaut! That's for sure. Our last two boats were woodies, but our next one will be either FRG or steel.

I would believe a quick sale of this offering. Has all the attributes often mentioned as desired, chocks, bulb bow, (wait for it-slanted windows) Had to add for the fever that arouses.
Were I to entertain living onboard, this boat would be in the running for sure.

It is very nice. For a moment I thought it was the same as this YachtWorld listing but it is not. https://www.yachtworld.com/boats/198...awler-3641200/

New D8 batteries not yet installed.
That is an exceedingly good looking boat, until the picture of the engine room. There are no boats with 8Ds in my future. My back twinged when the brain determined 2 8Ds in the picture.

And the 8-D batteries are getting too heavy the older I get.

I never had trouble moving and or installing the 3 (or was it 4) 8Ds on my N46.
When I had them replaced, the removal and installation was part of the price.
8D are meant to be removed and installed by either high school or college foot ball players. They were in the fwd port corner, outboard of the main engine. Had to be lifted out of the corner, OVER the engine, up and out of the engine room.
