    Default Dock neighbors

    Snoose and Barnacle. I know most of you have seen Barnacle before, but she just shed her full cover and I couldn’t resist a couple of pix. She’s a 1932 Blanchard Cruiser.

    Can’t have too many photos of those boats. Lovely. Thanks Ron.

    Definitely stylish. But my eye is immediately distracted by the BIG spreaders behind her, wondering what they're attached to.

    A mast. I'll even go out on a limb & state that the mast is attached to a boat!



    Barnacle & Snoose make a great pair!

    I see what is probably a steadying sail on the mizzen. Can a sail be flown from the foremast with that stay in the way and the radar on the cabintop obstructing things?
    Nice boat!!

    That would be a Farr 39, "Tachyon"

    Spiffy. I think I see a retractable bowsprit for an asym chute, nice, and saves on moorage length. I like the boom end sheeting. Way offshore I'd like a wheel and a full stern, as well as a longer house forward, but that one is sportier, for doing races as much as overnights.

    EDIT: I don't know about the boat in the slip, but the picture appears to be a Farr 395; The 39ML has a longer cockpit, shorter house, more winches, boom sheeting aft of the rudder post, so even more of a racing machine.

    Not a dock neighbor, but an anchor neighbor in Gig Harbor this morning. Puffin.

    You may be correct, that may have been a Farr marketing pic. Here is Tachyon in her slip.

    I thought Puffin would be all over the internet but I couldn’t find her. I think she has some famous far north cruising under her belt but maybe I’m thinking of a different boat.

    I would guess a Bill Garden design

    Nice weather to be out cruising. I knocked off early yesterday and my daughter and I took the boat out

    She's clearly a child of the PNW. At one point, she was studying the chart when a whale spouted. I told her to look up. "Dad, I've seen whales before." And kept looking at the chart

    Ron is in Gig Harbor. Bobcat is (or was) watching whales on the Sound. And I'm stuck in the office on this beautiful day. Argh!

    Puffin is indeed a Garden Design:

    Right you are. Here is a William Garden Facebook page featuring Puffin.

    With the boom sheeting behind the rudder post (I think I see an emergency tiller fitting just forward of the traveler), I think that is the 39ML. That's the most easily distinguishable feature, but other stuff matches too. About twice the sail area/displacement as a typical cruiser that size.

    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.

    Yes indeed Chris, you should be in Gig Harbor. You had such a good time last time you were here.
    I think you may have solved that problem however.

    Why do all wake boats with big assed speakers on their roll bars think everyone in the harbor likes country and western music?

    There are a few things about that culture that could be described as 'self-centered'...
