Been Lurking...

Long time lurking in the shadows, time to come out and introduce myself.

My wife and I have our baby, a 42 Deltaga long range trawler conversion from a BC Dungeness crabber (parts still in progress).

Looking forward to assisting the group in any way I can - cheers!

Welcome.

Curious... What speed is optimized with the bow's "nose"? I have a similarly-shaped hull but without the proboscis.

Love the yellow stripe and green hull with red bottom.

An upside-down Travel-Lift?!? Probably run by Australians. That sure would make a bottom job easier. What yard is that?

Nice boat, Welcome Aboard.

If you have been lurking for a while you know we love pictures. We love inside pictures and especially engine room pics. We also love specifics, such as engine make and model, cruising speed, weight, engine hours, tranny, on and on it goes. We also like pictures to accompany questions.

So lets get started with some inside pictures.

Love the yellow stripe and green hull with red bottom.
According to marine engineers:
"The bulb modifies the way the water flows around the hull, reducing drag and thus increasing speed, range, fuel efficiency, and stability. Large ships with bulbous bows generally have twelve to fifteen percent better fuel efficiency than similar vessels without them."

Since she was a fishing boat, and not best for hull design for economy, adding rolling chaulks, and the bulbous bow were part of the economy plan for long trips.

Wow, thanks for sharing those pics. She sure looks like one serious sea-going trawler. Which in the case of your vessel, is not the usual misnomer it is when applied to most of ours. Welcome to TF.

That's one great looking boat! Welcome to TF, SP3.

How wide is that beast? She looks big in the butt. Maybe it's the rolling chocks!
