Re: Do You Know What Type Of Boat This Is?

I found it on a site that sells sailboats. Can't remember which one I really like it and would like to track down who makes it. I remember it said Further on the back, can't find those picks at the moment though.

Re: Do You Know What Type Of Boat This Is?

Might be ferro, but I'm betting steel. The bow is too fine.

I'll bet someone took a regular set of plans, or a hull, and "improved" it.

I have seen the rounded deck hull joint before and don't like it. It sounds good for shedding water, or crew.

Is it me or is that boat very poorly supported?

What's going on with the monster platform in the rigging in the first pic? Biggest crows nest ever?

Asthetically I think it's totally cool looking! But no, sorry, no idea. I'd bet it's a one-off. Post my boat around and noone will have an answer either.

Bow looks like a WW2 Japanese destroyer... The bow pulpit seems that have been cut.. That boat is missing the bowsprit....

It looks custom, not production.

I think that might be in the water, but even so it's mysterious.

The tip-off was the use of a telephone pole as a mast - it just didn't seem likely.

With regard to the material, my untrained eye sees an unsually large amount of surface rust on the lower part of the hull, so I'm thinking steel.

EDIT:
Hmm, it does seem to be rigged to the boat, but it doesn't seem to be centered. Is this even a sailboat?

Here is the answer. Sometimes I forget technology exists. I am getting old:

I think that thing gets cooler every time I look at it. I can't imagine what cargo (legal) you could even haul to call it a "business" but man it'd be fun to act like it was! lol

Seems like a decent buy from a totally uneducated buyer (never touched a steely, or diesel)

I don't think it's a sailboat. No winches, chain plates, etc, etc.

That mast thing might be for loading cargo?
