If they roll like a bad dog due to orig design... that revamped, top heavy one must nearly lay over in a sea of any extent??

The steady sail was an attempt to reduce the roll?

The Rawsons are glass. Round bilge and most have a tunnel. They do not have to be slow a light weight 300 hp diesel will get you around 18 knots. Lots of them have had rolling chocks added but they still roll a bit. But even with the rolling they are surprisingly good sea boats.

Great Harbour GH-37 with some rather ostentatious canvas work on the boat deck.

I've learned more about different model boats and names of boat manufacturers from this thread than all of the other reading that I have done combined! What a great thread.

Raised swim platform, TV cabinet under the flag on the aft deck, 3 port holes on Starboard rather than than the usual 5. Every boat is different. We may pull up next to her if she's still there a couple months.

I like the canvas work. Sort of gives it a 'river boat' look.

If you want to start a multi-million dollar business, open up a canvas shop for boats in WI. Gotta keep out of the wind, cold, rain, mosquitos, etc.

Our dual-console has canvas on it, and the sales guy said something to the effect of "it's a pretty boat when you remove all that ugly camping canvas". And I agree with him 100%, but man.... when it's 45 deg, overcast, drizzly, and windy, there's nowhere on earth colder than the waters of Green Bay or Lake Michigan!

Except for on western Lake Superior

We never removed our panels in the summer. We’d roll up the door, maybe.

The Esprit was advertised here and elsewhere for sale in 2019, it now appears she is back on the market. I see that the mast has been removed in favor of a lower profile mount for the radar antenna. My guess is she made the loop, or was prepping for it? Or maybe the new owner wanted better visibility from the upper helm.

Still love her, even though below-decks she isn’t configured the way I would need her to be.
Esprit - I'm new on the forum and this boat really caught my eye. Since I"m a newbie here - would you comment on how it would be with the flybridge so far back? And also would the davit hoist the dingy from the side of the boat rather than aft? Thanks!

reference to Esprit mentioned #10233

Interesting to see a similar boat in aluminum from the same period. Not the same, but similarities. This has been seen here before.

Nice boats.....
The older I get, the more I appreciate a less complicated boat.
My N46 took forever to learn each of the systems. Now the AT34 is just about right.

That's an aft pilothouse model, and lets you have a lower air draft. If you stacked the flybridge over the helm station, you would be much higher. Moving it aft a bit, the floor of the flybridge is on the roof of the salon (saloon) and your overall height over the waterline is lower.

The Joy Lynn

I’m not sure how interesting this boat will be to all,but it was interesting enough for us to purchase. We’re renaming her Joy Lynn. I know she’s not a trawler but she’s a fine riverboat so hopefully you won’t kick us to the side.

We just got the survey done yesterday and it came out very good with only a couple minor issues. Built in 1970 by the previous owner. She’s been to New Orleans via downstream the Mississippi and back up the Tom Bigbee waterway the year it opened.

She has a 120 Ford Lehman diesel,cable steering with a huge quadrant and simple systems. Interior is walnut with mahogany beams above that span over the side decks. Cabin sides and roof are marine plywood fiberglass covered.

Marty - Good looking "house boat" you have there. Comfortable I'm sure! In SF Delta's 1,100 miles of freshwater rivers and sloughs [where we play]... there are a large number of similar craft. Enjoy yourselves. Oh and BTW - I'm right now sipping on "Community Coffee" Dark Roast that you turned me onto years ago. We've been drinking it since!! I never forget a favor... Thanks again!!

Thanks Art , we’re still drinking Community Coffee also. We switched to the cafe blend about a year ago.
