What boat in Overboard?

Things are kind of slow today. Probably because all our Northern brethren are hunkered down for the next oncoming polar vortex. Not going to come down to Florida this time, though, thank goodness!

Anyway, I was kind of bored, and so watched a movie this afternoon. "Overboard," the 1980's movie with Curt Russel and Goldie Hawn.....I like any movie that stars a boat.

Beautiful boat. Beyond my pay grade, of course. But still beautiful. Anyone know her history???

About 15 years ago it was at Leiberhaven's on Orcas Island,WA in sad shape, and they were planning to restore it. I don't know if they ever did.

I don't know much about the boat from overboard but I do know they filmed it in Noyo Harbor in Ft. Bragg California.. Hawn stayed next door from our family home in Mendocino. Always thought is was a strange place to film a movie with a boat as a major set.

Hawn's movie isn't my idea of a "boat movie." This is:

Well, of course...when they name a movie after you, what's not to like?

Recommend the books, the Audrey Maturin series by Patrick O'Brian. Story of Capt. Audrey, a British naval officer, during the Napoleonic wars. Life on a square rigger, operation of the ship, and lives of the seamen.

On a two week cruise up to the Chesapeake my crew referred to it as "2 Weeks Before the Mast". Now why would they do that?

So you prefer a movie with Russel Crowe and a bunch of grubby sailors..

I prefer a movie with a scantly clad Goldie Hawn...

I guess that says a lot about our preferences! some say there was a boat in Overboard???

I never noticed it

Lord Cochrane is to blame for my unending need to be on or near the water as I am a descendent. Almost named my boat after his nickname "Sea Wolf".

Movies, maybe, but IMHO, the Jack Aubrey series of books cannot begin to compare with the Hornblower series. :-) But different strokes for different folks, I guess.

One of the first books I remember reading as a kid.

That trip obviously left an impression on your crew!

At least they didn't call you "Francis A. Thompson."

The boat in Overboard was flying a Seattle Yacht Club burgee. Yes, I know there is something wrong with me for noticing that.
