Things I dont like about it: Wood hull, implied wet head, v'berth, I don't know a thing about a oil fired range. No A/C, no mention of a generator.

Looks like it would be a good 'plug' for establishing a fiber glass hull form.

Ted,
I have that kind of anchor set-up and still use a bridle if I am setting up for a long stay. It quiets the chain and provides some shock absorption capability.
I just drop one end of the bridle in the water ahead of the chain and then pick it up with a boat hook under the chain and attach the two ends at the forward bollards aft of the bow. The plate chain hook on the bridle grabs the chain easily using the two bridle lines.
Easy.

This is a good read from a trawler guy. Not really a fair comparison but interesting.

I've always admired the Hans Christian Independence design. Any owners here or experiences with one? Why are all the best looking boats in the Washington Seattle area?

Interesting for sure... My Comments on - "Life Proof 35' Full Cabin":

1. Our 34' Tollycraft tri cabin has oodles more comfortably usable room; both inside and outside.

2. Tolly's 5 seater fly bridge gives your eyes great oversight of everything - 360 degree full-view... all the time. Seating on bridge places person's eye-line 14' above water line. Standing increases that number to 16' +. Can't tell you [you simply have to experience] how great that greatly elevated eyesight vantage point is for visuals of all sorts while cruising, docking or sitting at anchor!

3. Tolly's 12'6" beam enables a 9' x 8'6" wide open and yet fully SS guard railed sundeck over top of stern master stateroom. Comfortable seating, BBQing, eating... etc at seated eyelevel some 10' above water line.

4. Tolly draft is 2'10" - but in fairness... Life Proof has reduced draft capabilities [down to 2'] by raising the outboards. With outboards down it's approximately same draft as our Tollycraft.

5. Tolly has two fully equipped heads... both with "in room" shower nozzles and drain-pan pumps.

Life Proof is fast for sure! Where our Tolly likes to cruise neatly on full-plane at 16 to 17 knots; averaging 1 nmpg --- Life Proof stats:"... cruising time to Poulsbo at a “slow cruise” of 28 knots was 30 minutes, burning less than 15 gallons of fuel. That = approx same nmpg as our Tolly [1 nmpg] - accomplishing the trip in a little more than 1/2 the time... Tolly would have take one hour instead of Life Proof's 1/2 hour.

Relaxing cruise can be wonderful fun... arrival at destination is the topping to the cake. Although our Tolly can easily cruise at 17 knots on full plane... doing 7 knots is truly relaxing and we often keep her to that speed... averaging 2+ nmpg!

Interesting for sure... "Life Proof 35' Full Cabin"

Also very interesting... "Tollycraft 34' Tri Cabin". At a tiny fraction of the overall cost for ownership!!

Even more interesting, check out the drop down transom which simply cannot possibly be real?

That stunt was done for a Hugo Boss TV commercial awhile back. They took a lot of heat from certain groups for it.

Yes, I'm rather partial to them. After Hans Christian and the owner of the molds parted ways, he brought them back to the USA and partnered with Cherubini in New Jersey. I like mine very much.

I wondered if there was some connection with the Cherubini, what with the similarity (at least from the outside?)

I’d say this is a 32’ BB fishing boat. Only about 6.5’ wide.
These were originally a sailing boat. The BB fishermen went out for a week at a time. They were open boats w shelter provided by the boom and canvas. A 40’ boat towed them out and back from the fishing grounds.
In this pic the cabin and wheelhouse was later (much later) added.
Also power wouldn’t be anything near 135hp. More like within the range of 10 to 15hp. But these BB boats had no power other than sail w low aspect ratio rigs and more often … oars.


The owner of this boat sold me a rowboat that he used in Alaska .. BB. Pic below.
The bow fender on the rowboat is a very small version of a tugboat woven line fender. See pic.

Woah! Cool boat. Never seen a hydraulic drive like that - seems like you'd take a pretty serious efficiency hit, no?
