But the sleeping up top with plenty of ventilation and no a/c required vs for the rest of you, sleeping in the bowels of the beast with a hot engine for company.....priceless.
My bowels could use some more ventilation for sure.

Topsy Turvy 2020!

Cops came and arrested all persons at a big family gathering where all were smoking pot.

Arrest warrants said nothing about the pot. But rather, about the too many at the gathering.

I guess that is funny??!!

Quite nice.

However... Don't particularly like the pilot station or the stern cushioned seat "platform" with many pillows. Seems the captain is a bit removed from seeing forward of bow... into sea conditions and for docking circumstances.

Looks beautiful underway. Would think range should be more than the mentioned 2000 miles at 10 knot cruise. Liters mentioned calcs out to 26 gallons per hr. Which means, 5,200 usable gallons - keeping a 520 gallon reserve. Wonder what fuel usage is at WOT doing 13 knots mentioned?

I really like boats with fantails. That one is very nice. The above deck superstructure looks like a house that had additions added that didn't look in keeping with the design.

$200 if the engines pass survey.
plus $200 if the hull passes survey.

Sounds like all the plywood needs to be removed down to the ribs. Replace the necessary ribs and use marine plywood, twice.

Maybe someone will make a mold of a PT boat hull and start producing them. SMILE Presto, you are in the boat building business.

Greetings,
Mr. A. I'm no expert BUT I don't think that was ever a PT boat. Best I could find was, they were 70+ feet long.



"The U.S. Navy used the Packard V-12 Marine Engine (4M-2500) in all U.S. Navy World War II PT boats." From this article: https://nationalinterest.org/blog/bu...-war-ii-102707

No trawler, but interesting nonetheless.

Faerings are small craft of Viking origin. We saw one heading south as we were going north near Namu, on BC's central coast. Winds were light, so they were rowing.

We used to say sea kayaking was like car camping because of all the crap you could take along compared to back packing.

With a Faering, you could pack even more and relax on downwind runs with the sail up...well, probably not very relaxing with winds over 20 knots.

I agree RT - But the ad says - PT??? Maybe misprint on length of mistake in measuring...

I like it! That could be a really neat boat for wider canals, gentle rivers, and protected bays and sounds.

Unfortunately I'm no longer under 40 and need to keep those kind of adventure trips to hours, not days.

If it does not come with the torpedos, machine guns and cannon - ferget it! By the way, doesn't look like any PT boat I saw on McHale's Navy and Ernest Borgnine knew PT boats.

It is hard to say from the photos what that supposed PT boat really is. At 60 feet it is much too short. THIS is a real PT boat I rode a year ago in Lake Ponchartrain complete with her V-12 Packards. Do I hear and amen?
