Well, not around here where GBs are a dime a dozen. That's one reason we bought one, despite their not being on our list of "cool" boats. They're everywhere on west coast and used ones are dirt cheap to boot.

You want to draw a crowd in this neighborhood you've got to pull in with something other than a production boat, preferably something made out of wood.

Like this one, in Sidney this morning, which I'm betting you know.
El Danato.
A 1960 Ed Monk Sr design built by the current owners father.
55 years in the same family.

An amazing boat and gentleman owner.

Don't know that boat but there is an amazing Shane from lower BC we've seen in the San Juans from time to time. That thing draws a crowd just going by out in the channel....

El Danato was built with adz and draw knives in the shop of the owners road building company in Ballard. I love those stories.

Ahh yes, see it here but just a bit above the waterline. Never knew what it was and have certainly never seen it tracing the bow wave pattern.
Thanks.
