As to the possible motion when underway, she’s kind of long and narrow like my boat so I’m just guessing there’s going to be some roll. My boat is more of a rounded hull so it should not be as bad as mine.

However, being aluminum I think it would be relatively easy to install a paravane rig without a great deal of cost.

Edit:
I thought you wondered about the motion in this thread somewhere but now I don’t see that question anymore so disregard. Also, I just remembered your job is being out at sea so motion probably doesn’t bother you like us land lubbers.

I think that came up in the 'interesting boats' thread. Actually I do try to minimize the roll at work, and largely for the same reasons as everyone here. Not because the boat cant handle it, or it's unsafe, but because it tends to make a mess, and can roll you out of bed, lol.

I am genuinely interested to see how she feels underway, and I'm really glad that the sea trial will include some time out on open Lake Ontario. If I was going to be doing more big open water passages, I would certainly be looking into paravanes.

Dave, what type of boats do you work on? I would be interested to see a few photos if you have any.

I'll do ya one better! Here's some swell drone footage that some boatnerd shot of us last year.



And in case anyone's interested, I've got a bunch of time lapse videos on my own channel. I think they're neat.

That “handbrake” turn is impressive! Does a big ship like this have some kind of bow thruster or is that all done with the rudder?

Oh yeah, she’s got a thruster. I wanna say it’s around 800 horsepower.

Thank you sir! I'm sure I'll have a bunch of dumb questions for you, xsbank, and everyone else with aluminum ships.

That's interesting that you're in the commercial marine biz. Some of the guys on my dock were graduates of MMA (Mass. Maritime Academy) and said they loved it. Lots of neat marine professions after they get their degree.

The Perkins 4.236 is certainly up to the job. I put over 4500 hours on one, which had a mid life rebuild (at about 4000 hours--didn't need a rebuild, but the PO didn't know how to change the main oil seal without taking the engine out of the boat!) The engine was completely examined and all was up to spec at 4000 hours. Since It was apart we put in new mains, and any part which seemed to wear. I sold that boat 20 years ago. The next owner still lives aboard and the engine still ticks over. That boat was a Cal 46, Displacement 30,000# lite boat, we sailed her fairly heavy, often with supplies aboard for 6 months. The specs are very similar to your boat (beam LWL and hull form just more draft with the keel)--she would run at a gallon an hour at 6 knots at 1600 RPM. Max speed was just shy of 9 knots. We never ran over 8 knots--and rarely did that. I consider that Perkins a great match for your hull.

Remember that "Idlewild" did her circumnavigation with a 55 hp Izusu. (She was 30,000 lite boat, 57' LOA, and 11' beam.)

Congratulations, she looks to be a well found and constructed vessel.

High railings, round-the-boat deck, keel-protected rudder and propeller, both port and starboard helmsman doors, no flybridge.

Yeah, it's a pretty good gig. You can't beat the vacation schedule, and the pay is generally pretty good. I'm glad I got into it. I've worked with quite a few people from Mass Maritime. They make good sailors. I'm a SUNY grad, myself.
