Alaskaflyer.....now thats what i call a proper boat! Those Cape Horns seem like some of the best out there. Some have a 3" thick steel skeg to protect the drive, etc. Even Steve Dashew probably thinks theyre safe enough.

In this pic the cabin and wheelhouse was later (much later) added.
Also power wouldnt 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.
If I'm not mistaken the boat converted to a cruiser was gaff yawl rigged to make it easy to heave to for recovering fishing gear. The gaff could be scandalized with yawl centered and made flat. Then the tiller pushed hard over she'd sit still and slide along sideways with the gear as it's pulled in. At least that's how I understand it to work.

With a azimuthing drive, why would you have a rudder? Added stability?

The ad says so. I imagine during cruise it would be a plus.

Speaking of converted classic military vessels, one of the more beautiful ones Ive seen around the net.
https://www.boattrader.com/boat/1944...96-my-7702467/

1944 fast pilot rescue boat that wasnt finished before the war ended, mothballed until converted in the 1970s.

For me, Id have to convert the built in wine cellar to a steam sauna

I was on a Cape Horn years ago. Might have been this one. At the time, it was called a Z-drive, now a ThrustMaster. Beautiful boat. Original owner made it perfect for cruising with his wife. Coming down, she fell down. When they got to here, he took her to the hospital. She was diagnosed with bone cancer. They flew back to their home, he called a broker.... put the boat up for sale and never stepped onboard that boat again. Really sad.

That tiled bathroom is a bit much. IMO, it needs something to break up the pattern.

SpaceX uses thrustmaster drives to position control their landing barges. IT has to be at the right place at the right time or they lose a rocket...

Up close look at Tango Too

This Cape Horn has a Volvo sail drive get home for trolling or getting home. Cape Horn website from 2001 talks about always being able to steer.


We were on a three hour tour of Lake Union and a little loop out the Mountlake cut this morning. Warm gray skies, Rainier just showing her skirts and three other boats on Lake Washington. Two of those coming out the cut as we poked along back in.

We cruised by Tango Too to get the water view and then stopped by on our way home. She looks good up close too. Some deferred paint maintenance showing and the listing mentioned a couple other systems that need work.

Not a trawler but a useful day boat. No need to moor, just drive it up the ramp or beach to your house.

A similar concept was built back in the 70s. A tow hitch folded out of the bow and wheels in the back. It was designed to be towed behind a car. Even had trailering lights built in.

A customer of mine had one. The interesting part was vehicle registration or boat registration? My recollection was that he registered it as a boat as boat trailer license plates are almost never checked.

As I understand it, beach launches are very common in NZ. With this no need to damage a vehicle.

This is from a website that sells watches, but the story is about a boat that I would consider "interesting," to say the least.
