    Wonder if these will thread on..?

    Neither do I.
    The motel we suggested is well above flood level and the is a small corner store nearby.

    Other than possibly being a 16-foot skiff (it is apparently 16 feet long) and gunter-rigged, what might this boat be?

    boat.jpg

    boat1.jpg

    boat2.jpg

    One of our brigade members knows the owner (who wants to sell it), and knowing nothing about boats himself, thought that he would ask me.

    It's not a class that I recognise (if in fact it does belong to one), but that doesn't mean much.

    It seems to sit rather oddly in the water, to my eye - perhaps the sailor should be sitting forward more.

    Any ideas, anyone?

    Cheers,
    Alex.

    Yes. Through ebay actually, their price on ebay is slightly less than on their website.

    Hello Phil,

    Is there a threaded (blanked-off!) hole for a tap at the bottom of the container? Containers like that usually have one. Harwdware stores would probably have screw-in taps for it.

    Alex.

    Ahh clever. I thought not, but its hiding around the back. I have some taps for 20 litre containers somewhere.

    Mirror rig?
    But it's not a Mirror 14 or 16 hull.

    Flat bottom?

    Edit: Then I read the rest of the replies. :-) I was going to ask about a tap hole but figured you'd already looked. :-)

    It would look like a Goat Island Skiff if it didn't have so much sweep in the sheer.

    Probably a one-off (because it looks like it didn't really work out)

    Looks like a Mirror rig. As far as I can tell, it has a flat bottom with quite a bit of rocker. The bow looks quite weird, too.

    It’s not a Goat Island Skiff.

    I was starting to think along the one-off lines too. It has none of the gracefulness of the GIS. It just looks weird.

    Exactly. I was only suggesting it could be a botched Goat Island Skiff. :-)

    It needs a couple more adults aboard to get the stem into the water.

    Doesn't quite make it.

    Perhaps whoever built it thought that they could 'improve' on the Goat Island Skiff design and really got stuck into that sheer, put a foredeck on it, and a breakwater, and...

    Presumably it has a centreboard, can't see the case though.

    What it really looks like is that someone scaled up a toy boat to ‘full size’.

    I like it. Because I didn't make anything yet Processing....... Right now, I am working with my toilet. Because, I just get my convenient height toilet(20 inches) https://bestflushingtoilet.org/conve...a-tall-senior/. It's for tall man. I need to install it. After that I will start to build my new boat.

    5 or 7 days ago GFS had cyclone oma hitting Northland this saturday and ECMWF had it heading for Queensland . Normally I rate gfs for serious stuff like cyclones, ec for day to day. In this case the euros got it much closer. Any wind here on Sunday is just generated by yer common or garden low pressure system cartwheeling up out of the lower Tasman, but I moved Riada off her mooring and into her new long term/ one day permanent home, marina berth yesterday. I am now a splicing fool and count the quality of the afternoon on how many eye splices I can get through. (Not many)
    Hey, I learned that when I was 10, I still know how to do it eh.......

    Must make eye splices on my mooring lines. Maybe after I finish the deck.

    That yellow boat must be something by Bolger surely.

    The BOM has a pretty intense low forming over Nth Island on Saturday and then intensifying as it moves E on Sunday, bringing gales + to East Coast Nth Is. If our cyclone heads S instead of SW then NZ might get it but miss out on the other low. Either way, getting the boat belted down seems a good idea to me.

    Wow, just stumbled on this cool thread. Looking forward to going back through to perve on everything that everyone's building/talking about (with 1317 posts though, thats going top take some time)

    As for me, I've got an English Contessa 26 to completely refit (not a wooden boat I know, but still a classic) and am halfway through building a Dierking Ulua outrigger canoe. Both these have been taking me years due to low finances and suburban lifestyle restrictions, but I've recently addressed that by buying an acreage and building a house & kick-arse shed (specifically for boat restoration/building pursuits).

    I've got a love for classic designs including double enders (big & small) and small row/sail beach cruisers. My Dad's from Holland so I've also got a fascination for Dutch barges and small Dutch craft.

    Anyway, looking forward to learning a thing or two.

    I LOVE Wylo 2s. I found one years ago in Hardys Bay NSW, and left a note on it asking to have a look. The owner kindly got back to me an said no worries. He met me out there and he showed me around her.

    Awesome boat. He'd built her himself and had a few adventures aboard her, but was selling her at the time. I would've given my right one for it, but was too skint. It sold quickly and I saw a post on FB from the new owner sailing her off to distant places (lucky bugger).

    Scotty, welcome. You have the necessary qualifications. You bought acreage and think now you will have more time for boats. You built a shed and think you will have more room for boats. Hahahaha. Seriously though, welcome.
