New Poster boat for trawlerforum.com

I have searched long and hard to find a boat that all the hardcore trawler forum folks can agree upon as being the "poster boat" here at trawler forum...you know...a good solid, rugged, and salty traditional trawler that we can all mutually use as the gold standard for judging most all other designs, whether they be new or traditional in scope, age, or concept. It's been a long search and the flybridge/no flybridge debate, along with the twin vs. single debate, not to mention teak or no teak debate, well...they mutually made the task rather daunting at times but finally...finally, I believe I have discovered our new poster boat. As such, I am pleased to present her to you all for mutual respect and admiration. Her traditional lines I know are going to excite many of us here at TF. I am sure we can all see the design references to Ed Monk, Art Defever, et al.

Well there it is. It doesn't get any better than that.

I'm speechless. I think we're going to have to invent a new word. The word "ugly" just doesn't even come close. Even "fugly" misses the mark.

And if this doesn't settle the "fenders out or fenders in" debate, nothing will!

Oh, dear Marin. I beg to differ. A simple tasteful touch to the windshield, and voila!

It's not only ugly it's butt ugly. Wouldn't have it even if I won the lottery, but thanks for sharing.

We'd have to change the name to "Spaceship Forum"... (Although healhustler did turn it back into a boat - nice Photoshopping skill!)

I like it Wood. Lets replace the Selene in the top banner with Larry's "wannabe window" version.

Aw, Hustler-you beat me to it, I could not tell from the original which way the windows slanted. Guess your pic seals Marin's "No" vote!

With apologies to the designer (?), but your version actually looks better!

It think it goes to the administrators. There is a "contact us" button at the bottom of this screen that gets you to the website administrator. You can try that.
