Sightings: Crowther Passagemaker 48

This monster wandered into the local marina yesterday.



It took up the entire end pier. The unpainted aluminum finish, although practical, looks fugly. I think we need a new category for Multi-hull power boats!

Cool! She's so sleak looking, like a knife.

I didn't know you were from Prescott, my dad's wife (my step-mother) is from there and they just got back to the city from there for Father's Day. That area is definitley a jewel in Lake O's crown.

Here's a 1/4 scale replica of the Bluenose II. Her name is Tradition II.

Built in Chester NS in 1975 it's a fine example of wooden boatbuilding craftmanship.

I like the lines on bluenose but that power tri in the first pic looks like it should be doing escort duty for the navy squids

I watched Bluenose sail on San Francisco Bay. What a beautiful sight, and a top notch crew dropping sail..........
