Absolutely correct, and with a great looking sheer too.

Yes, indeed a pretty trawler…and Craig…maybe you just then put your finger on the one feature which maybe typifies more than anything else as to what is a trawler and no-one has mentioned yet…the sheer line..!

I'm liking the Yellow accent it brings out the lines of the boat. The show stopper for me is that it's a wood boat.

Reminds me of the Lord Nelson Victory Tugs. Fell in love with those many years ago.

Yes Peter the sheer is great. And the yellow goes very well w the blue boot stripe.

Also having very handsome vertical wheelhouse windows adds to the charm and timeless classical looks. No fads or vogue stuff here. Just basically good design.

Yes, exactly. What amazes me is how moving the stripe forward has eliminated the illusion of a vertical windshield!

I like those Albions. Never been on one, but see old ones for sale from time to time. All west coast sales.

Wasn't there some connection to Doug (Dave?) Palmer of Beaverglass Hulls? I recall him making a comment to that effect way back when I was looking at his Northsea 26.

There was certainly a great deal of cross-pollination in the early glass years. Puska was one of the first to go all glass, his boats were quite simple and straightforward. The Palmer boats were fancier and bit more yachty, but he may have worked with or for Puska.
