View Full Version : Boat identification quiz
03-15-2012, 11:49 AM
I am trying to identify what this boat is. I have looked at many different brands and styles and cannot come up with it. This was a boat that was in my wife's family in the late 50's early 60's and we suspect it was built either before WWII or in the late forties. The siblings recall it as being somewhere between 32' and 36' but we cannot find any other information in the family files.
Any and all input would be appreciated and thanks for your time.
I have a couple of other photos but the site doesn't support much in the way of image size so I could only upload one eventho I compressed the pictures quite a bit.

don't try to attach photos. they're too small. host them on a website and then copy the location (the url), something like http://photoshop.picture.jpg (http://photoshop.picture.jpg/)
then use the image icon in the forum toolbar, choose "from url", paste the location in the window, uncheck the box marked "retrieve remote file and reference locally" and click OK.
if you can copy the img code, you can paste it directly into the forum text area.
hope this helps.

If you can post some geography you might help us help you. I am assuming that it is not a Norfolk Broads cabin cruiser, but there is a lot more acreage of flat water that that could be sitting in around this globe.

LarryB - It took me a while to figure out how to post photos myself, but if you want to post them with a hosting site like the people above have suggested, email them to me, and I can put them on a host site and link them to the forum. Private Message me for my email if you want me to post them for you.

Thank you CrosbyStriper. If I can't figure it out I will mail you for you contact info and get some help. I should probably try and learn how to do this stuff so that I don't fade into obscurity technology wise...........

Okay this should be the link to my photobucket album http://s1240.photobucket.com/albums/gg486/LarryB55/
I hope this helps with my request to identify the boat.

Thanks Nick. The boat was purchased and used in the Seattle, in Washington State area around Puget Sound and the San Juan Islands.

It has a certain Atkin look to it, but the house is bigger than any Atkin design I've seen.

Looks a bit like some Ed Monk Sr. cruisers.

The windows kind of say "Matthews" to me, but not sure. Might also be a home built, or maybe a home built house on an existing hull.
But then looking at some Monk Sr. pix, maybe johnw is closer
I think this is going to be up to the PNW guys. She doesn't look like a 'nationally recognized' builder to me, and with that really long wheelhouse (& small cockpit) she may have have been built with the PNW lack of sunshine in mind. - Just a thought.

BTW, Thanks to you TerryLL for doing whatever you did with the pictures! I will research Atkin a bit and see what I find.

I does look something like a Monk. A couple more pieces of info I found from looking at a picture of the front. It has two windows in front and the helm is on the port side. The picture of the front is in very rough shape which is why I did not post it.
