    Default New England boats on CL

    If I had a dollar for every girl who found me unattractive, eventually they would find me attractive.

    That houseboat looks like a fun time. Wonder how much hassle there is keeping it moored and getting use out of it? Some people don't like other people having the same waterfront view for millions less.

    If I were ever to own a powerboat, it would be pretty much exactly like that "trawler". Man, that's pretty....

    I recently attended the receiver's auction at the old TPI building (Pearson, in Warren RI) where I worked for 6 months in prototype a long time ago and on the way home stopped to check this boat out. I was fairly serious. The price is crazy. The problem is that that engine is (obviously) a lot heavier than the one specced for it (20hp two stroke vs. 25 hp four stroke) and probably drags the back end pretty badly. The owner, who's used it once, reports top speed as 14 which indicates something pretty badly off. He never even titled it. I was imagining the boat up in the bow, down in the stern, and leaving a really dirty wake. Maybe he's got the wrong prop on there. Who knows. But as winter is closing in, I wasn't motivated enough to take it on. A person could flip the Honda for the price he's asking for the whole boat and get a second hand 20 two-stroke if he or she were motivated. The boat's competently built and has a nicer finish than the pics show. Definitely not a "show" handy billy, but not half bad. The HOnda engine is apparently so big (and so quiet) the builder dispensed with the engine cover

    I had a ride on one of the HB 18s and it was kind of alarming because it did as you say, dragged the transom, bow way up, pulling a big wake, so narrow as to be wet and unstable at speed. It felt so inefficient that it was upsetting. I tried leaning way out over the foredeck to see if it would get up on a moderate plane but it just got wetter. The boat is meant for slow speed cruising.

    I've been day dreaming about this sort of thing. There is something like this close to my house the last few summers and it looks like a lot of fun.

    Thanks for that!! Just saw this. I wonder if the one you tried was also incorrectly powered, or something. Anyhow--really glad I didn't go for it now. It didn't look all that narrow in person but in the drawing they do taper a fair bit (in plan) right back where you need planing surface (and of course missing that huge chunk of buoyancy at the engine well) Anyhow, my heart's been set on an 18' Novi-type (much beamier, flattish bottom) and I just couldn't imagine this one having enough get-up-and-go when I wanted it (like, at least 18 knots), especially with that load in the back. Could have turned into a real p.i.t.a. project

    Very interesting.

    I don't know the hull shape of your specific Novi design but we had a Westport type open boat with a 45 hp motor on it, 19' long. It would move along well at fifteen knots but would porpoise at any speed higher unless the motor was tucked down with the trim 'n tilt. Ours was wide and flatter on the bottom than this one, but similar in sheer and open layout. http://www.sixrivermarine.com/Westpointer.htm
    It was a great boat for our purposes and we had it for about twenty years. We got the hull bare and fitted it out with a small side console and vee berths forward for kids to nap on after a day out in the sun and wind.

    I don't actually have a Novi (yet) but that type is what I'm looking for. Westpointer, Midland 19, or like this one here

    When you say porpoise, you mean it goes bow down and butts into the waves? Or rears up and wiggles? I drove a nice Novi type skiff up in Maine once that probably went about 22 or so and it went with a nice level attitude though predictably spanking hard in the chop. I need enough wide open flat space for a small cuddy and those skiffs tend to be pretty beamy. Also look nice.

    Our boat was a General Marine 19, which they enlarged into the 22. This is an example of porpoising: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wmCswOz-Eek

    Interesting. I'd like to see a vid of a skiff NOT porpoising, since that to me looks like any old powerboat planing over a low, flat swell. How would you eliminate that motion without making the skiff 2X as long?

    Also, if they'd increased the speed, the boat would have just spanked over the swell as per pretty much any skiff I've ever been on. This looked sort of like a semi-planing type, almost, at not very high speed

    Not sure, in other words, what I'm looking at
