    Default double-enderitus troller style

    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    That is so nice! I'm told that trawler designs consume far less fuel than more modern (faster) hulls. I like the idea of just knocking around the Maine coast in that. It sure beats what I'm doing right now...

    She was for sale for ridiculously cheap for many months. When I finally worked up the courage, somebody else bought her.

    It’s a PNW style. Prolly too deep for the Maine Coast.

    The engine room is way to dark and greasy to photograph well. Not sure I even have any pix of it. But I'll see if I can dig up some interior shots, altho they will be ones that have been seen here before.

    Okay Paul. Found this pic of the stern. This might be a cure for your double-enderitus.

    Can't let that other pic stand too long. Here is a bit later with all new purple heart framing and plywood/glass/epoxy deck.

    Now I'll guess that you're just funnin' us - but Maine is much like the PNW - maybe even more so. Pretty much you've got 50' under you, unless you have 0...

    My 8'3" draft PNW boat does just fine in Maine. Buzzards Bay, Cape Cod, & LI Sound - not so much.

    You left one thing out. I moved here from the Chesapeake where running aground was a soft squish followed by great embarrassment. Up here, it's rather something very different!

    BANG!

    Of course I've just heard about this - never experienced it personally...

    Very nice. Only 33 feet, built 1959 in Prince Rupert, hence PRBC on the side.



    There is no rational, logical, or physical description of how free will could exist. It therefore makes no sense to praise or condemn anyone on the grounds they are a free willed self that made one choice but could have chosen something else. There is no evidence that such a situation is possible in our Universe. Demonstrate otherwise and I will be thrilled.

    I think the Full Moon was owned by my friend John......He moved to Cortez Island about 8 years ago so I have not seen him since. She sure is looking good now!

    Keep up the good work. One of those can really ruin your whole day.

    I'll need to check a book at home tonight, but I remember reading about a newly launched schooner that was built for the schooner races. On it's first trip it overran it's course, hit a ledge, and sheared away the keel. It went down. It may well have been the fastest schooner ever built.

    Yes it can. Having steeply sloped ballast helps. So I've heard anyway...

    Okay Paul, you did it. I had to dig for some interior shots, but you've trolled me up.

    First, an exterior just for some context:

    Monterey Clippers. Gotta love them. Traditional SF fish boats. Italian emigrants arrived in the Bay area from `around Genoa. Build the same felluca-style hulls that they were used to and commenced fishing. Over time the hull design evolved from sailing to power. Beautiful boats.
