    Very nice boat - I had a 33' Alden Malabar Junior I lived aboard in Shilsole in the 70's. I recognize your view from your home above the marina - great place to live and view Puget Sound.

    Great photos. Rather see posts of a troller and posts from a troll, any day.

    So it looks as if the fo'c'sle has some bunks and the head, I assume with shower and the aft cabin has the galley and table

    nice set up
    What's not on a boat costs nothing, weighs nothing, and can't break

    Correct. The aft settee makes into a double guest bunk. Only slight inconvenience is going from aft cabin to fo'c'sle is two steps out into the weather. But we are used to it and it really isn't a problem.

    The aft cabin on my boat is separate as well. I don't find it an issue

    I've lived in a smaller flat in London…………..

    She's one of those 'just right' boats proportionally and has a definitely perky look about her.

    Thanks again all. This thread has been a bit of an eye opener to me. We’ve owned Snoose for 22 years and enjoyed her a lot. But these days when something breaks, I find myself again considering an exit strategy (Snexit?). I guess I’m getting to the age where the energy level to properly care for her is waning a bit, and a boat like this is not something that can be sold overnight.

    But then the comments here have made me realize what a unique fun boat she is and that I can probably rally enough energy to keep her for a bit longer. So I’ll put “Snexit” on hold for at least another year or so I guess.

    Not Snoose. Back in the day I used to take my Blanchard Sr. Knockabout to the PT festival, but Snoose doesn’t have enough varnish.

    Finishing up two coats of bottom paint. Coolant system back together and filled, engine started for short periods to circulate, no bubbles, no leaks. Splash tomorrow at 1:00pm

    And if you had another couple aboard, you would enjoy actual privacy at night.

    Except at our age, guests of a similar age will have to cross the weather bridge four times in the middle of the night to pee in the head next to our vee berth.

    Just as a point of interest, note the pipe that wraps behind the keel just under the prop shaft. That is the keel cooler that cools the engine and was the main subject of this haulout. It had rotted out inside the boat where it transitioned to galv. iron pipe. The part outside the hull that you see in the picture is 1” copper. The iron fittings have now been replaced with bronze.

    What kind of fuel consumption are you looking at with that type of boat?

    1.6 gph at 7.5 knots, 1,500 rpm.

    And at 1500 rpm, cavitation at the liners/sleeves is not likely to be an issue...
    (It is the harmonic set up by the liner moving/vibrating when the engine is really working that causes this, and 71 series Detroits are typically governed at 2100 with an operating range of 1800-2100)

    It is also why engine overheating is not usually a problem on Snoose. If I run her up to 1,800 rpm, I’ll get 8 knots but I’ll also be dumping fuel into creating a big hole in the water between the bow and stern wakes. When I first got the boat the engine wasn’t even getting up to operating temp so I had the prop repitched a bit to get the engine up to 180 F. But good to hear the piston sleeve rot won’t be an issue.

    While I get the allure of varnish (for some), it's hard to imagine Snoose would be other than swamped with visitors at a show.. Truly.

    That 2nd pic (above) is lovely (I can easily ignore the houses in the background).

    We usually take her to the tugboat festival in Olympia over Labor Day. And altho not a tugboat, for that weekend they let us pretend.

    Tired of Snoose pics? Ha - not likely.

    Glad you got her properly sorted & I am also surprised the yard didn't have a workboat to tow her with. My brother towed our folks' 40' heavy ketch with an 8' pram powered by a Seagull. Got her up to over a knot! Got some thumbs up from the locals in Marsh Harbour.

    Yeah right! You'll sink the dock with admirers I think the appreciation for workboats and practicality is growing. At least I hope so

    Ron, there are plenty of valid reasons why one would not want to participate with their boat in PT. Lack of varnish isn't really one of them. And, if I'm wrong, and varnish really is a criteria, then I'd better be ready for rejection with my next build.

    I was kidding. Varnish isn’t really the issue. It’s probably more that I have never taken the initiative to plan in advance for it. Maybe next year.

    so many years, we have the same boats in the same spots,many locked up while folks are brunching it up i guess.
    Personally, I would like to build on my very short and quick visit aboard Snoose with some festival dock limin time .

    She’ll be open for boarding again this year at the Olympia Harbor Days festival over Labor Day. I might even have a cold beer or two on board for selected guests.
