A friend of mine sent me this pic taken somewhere down around Sausalito the other day. From a distance it looked like a much earlier design. I was surprised to see that it was a Monk built in 1947 at Harstine Island, Wa. It looks to be one of Monk's "troller cruisers". I'm getting that from the Ed Monk book. And I dont understand why it isnt just a bridgedeck cruiser.
Searching for a boat that is named after a place can be pretty tough sometimes. Hopefully someone here knows it. Anyways, I'd love to see more pics. In particular, I'd really like to see interior shots that show the layout. Monk was just so good at it. Any other pics of the lower aft cabin in bridgedecks around the forty foot mark would be nice to see as well.
I'm starting the slow process of desiging and ultimately bringing BETTY-B's interior back to a traditional layout. The over stupified seventies or eighties redo has way overstayed it's welcome!
