A perfeect coastal cruiser for two; at least we think so!

RE: What does your boat look like?
Well, CALYPSO appears to be a standard Grand Banks 42 classic, but looks can be deceiving, especially since I have spent 21 years playing around with her.* She's a 1972 woodie, and this picture of her lower station is just one of many internal changes.
Ok, not sure if this is going to work, but here is a couple of pics of Friendship. The hull is dirty from a couple of trips up and down the ditch last month. It's cleaned up now!
The two interior pics are the desk I built in last Winter. I'm sitting at it right now!
"La Perouse" is a 1973 Grand Banks 36 from the first year of fiberglass production, so it has a "Howard Abbey" hull, which is damn near bulletproof. The boat spent its whole life in San Francisco Bay until we went down and bought it out of Alameda in 1998. Twin Ford Lehman 120s.
My heart did a flip flop when I found your Albin. I had Trawlerette, a 1970 boat ( hull#278 ). I see yours is an early model too. Ours had a HM35F Yanmar. We were 68 days aboard on a trip to Juneau from near Seattle. I sold the boat to a wonderful lady ( Engineer on a ferry boat ) in 06 and bought a 30' Willard. We now live in Alaska.

What a wonderful boat. Looks to be about 32 x 11'. We have a 30' Willard Nomad and its not often we see another boat as special, bueatiful and capable as yours.... and so well presented. Our refit will be completed next summer and then we will take her home to SE Alaska. Thanks for sharing wilh us and when I get my computer skills up I'll be sharing too.
