Great pics Darren. Your boat really is a sister-ship to mine, only you have more natural timber outside than Lotus, and the flybridge is quite different. She looks really nice. However, you would not regret it if you go ahead and do that canopy extension, like we did, it just completes the boat.
 
Hi Peter.* Our boats are almost twins!* Yes, lots of timber on the exterior of Moon Dance, practically a forest.* The finish is really beginning to look bad as she's been out of her covered slip for 3 years now.* I was considering just letting the finish come off the teak and going natural, but everyone tells me that's a bad idea.* I do think that properly finished teak is beautiful, but, with the limited time I have available to do anything with the boat I can't work up the enthusiasm to expend that time in refinishing teak.*

Would it be sacrilege to just paint it?

Hobo had lots of exposed teak.* The exterior pilot house doors,*eye brow, grab handles, name boards*and and trim strips are teak.* They have been painted with a one part polyurethane.* We still have*the fly bridge and stairs, cockpit doors and cap rails finished in either varnish or Cetol.* We think we are pretty close to striking the balance between the exposed teak and the areas that have been painted.**So*my vote would be to go ahead and use some paint.*

Some people who have painted their exterior teak seal the wood with varnish first.* This allows the future removal of the paint*without having to sand to far into the grain if the they or the new owners every want to go back to varnish.

Darrel, I am about to paint the toerails and cap rails on flybridge also. They get the most UV exposure and with all the posts to mask around, it's a real pita to mask and get out the Cetol. The handrails, sliding doors, rear hatch and fwd doghouse will remain teak, but with sunbrella covers on the latter two. I saw a MT 40 a few weeks back that had the toerails painted white and you'd never have thought they were ever teak.
 
Darrell, if you look back to my avatar, reproduced below enlargeable, you will see the previous owner did what you are contemplating. It looks ok, but 'very white", (according to PhilFill, anyway). My comment on this elsewhere is that as it was done before I bought it , I don't grieve over it, and it is easier to look after, but does not look as good as teak - well-maintained, which is the relevant statement. However, I recently had to have the stern gunwhale capping replaced because damp had penetrated the seal on the timber and water trapped under the paint rotted it away. So, the message is, if you do paint it, do seal it with a 2 pack wood preserver, (eg Everdure - almost looks like a varnish finish), as Larry mentioned, then thoroughly sand and undercoat, several coats may be best, then a suitable number of top coats. But get an opinion from a timber boat expert re the above.

Mitja, it is not small. You click on the picture and it will enlarge it within your browser.

Very nice boat....didn't know GB made a 28!!!

She's is a one-off prototype or actually a "plug" for fibreglass production. The hull was made as a plug, but then they didn't start the production and some of the yard's carpenters finished her as a yacht. She's built completely in teak planking. Mitja.
 
I usually don't take too many pictures of our boat - more of the surroundings.

1985 FHB (sp) Fua Hwa Boats
38' plus a few inches x 13'6" with a 4'2" draft (when the whaler isn't on the davit).

2. My new comfortable steering station.
3. The sundeck (decorated) in this case with a mess "O" crab.
4. The fore deck with our Sanabel catching some rays.

Oh, and the avitar is from just off the south side of Mink Isl. just West of (sp) Predeaux Haven in Desolation Sound BC.

carv,
your'e not the 1st one not to mention what kind of boat you've got.
That pot of crab sure looks good.
It's got to the point that I like shrimp better though.
Got to learn how to catch them.
We get them from a local guy for $4 a pound.
You can see why I'm not yet skilled catching them.

sorry about that!

Yea, I hear ya... When there are fresh spotted shrimp on the table I forget to take ANY pictures. Too busy eating.

Also, SafeWay had them (D crab) last week for $2.99 a pound. We sacraficed a few on Friday night while watching the Gig Harbor Christmas Boat parade (which by the way was GREAT!)
 
Carl,
both your egg harbor and your MT look great! do you still have the egg harbor??
The interior of the MT looks extremely, extremely cozy and welcoming. I also like the flushdeck design of the egg harbor. Both are great boats!

Beautiful!!!!
 
With winter setting in, it's fun to reminisce summer past and dream of summers to come! Love everyone's pictures.

Alright Steve, what kind of boat is that....very nice BTW.
 
Thanks....that sure is a fine looking boat!!!
 
Yes, they are. It is basically the new model to mine, sold here as the Clipper 34 (now called 36), but with transom extension.
 
Steve,
I concur with the others- very nice looking trawler! What engine set up do you have and what's your top speed and approximate fuel burn? I assume single diesel, semi-displacement?
 
Thanks for the nice words. Yes, its a continuance of the CHB line from the 1980s and is now sold as the Clipper 36 in Australia, the Marine Trader 34 in the US and until two years ago the North Pacific 36 in North Americia. North Pacific Yachts now offers almost the same boat, but at 38 feet. My boat has a semi displacement hull, and fully laden displaces about 23,000 pounds. Its equipped with a Yanmar LHA 160 engine and at full throttle, 3300 RPMs, it makes just under 10 knots, although I normally cruise at 2000 RPM and 6 knots. Since first fuel up to now, (including gen-set and hydronic heater ussage) my average fuel burn has been 1.7 GPH. - SteveH
 
Nice, nice nice.* I love this style boat!

Hey...Magic...where was that taken?* I'm an NZeder originally, but I can't quite place that background.* For a minute I thought it might be Young Nick's Head off Gisborne (where I was born actually), in the background, but it's not, so is it Whangaparoa peninsula, north of Auckland?
