Re: Nautical Oddities

Just mount a large ring bearing on top of something like this for the mast to sit on.

Re: Nautical Oddities

Was heading to lunch when I saw a boat tied to the dock. I was looking at it wondering is that a sailboat or a fishing boat. Turned out it was both!

Re: Nautical Oddities

atoll,
Yes, needs a rotational gearbox. Once that's worked out then it needs a reefing system. I know they've done that with windmills too but a little harder on this rig.

Again not oddities but...

Driving HWY 1 from Half Moon Bay to Monterey yesterday. GF and son asleep when I get to Moss Landing. Of course I pull in and a few minutes later gf wakes up.

"Where are we, babe?"
"Moss Landing."
"Is this where all the crappy boats in America come to die?"
LOL - "Basically, I guess, yes..."

At least I know why they call it Moss Landing...

Definitely like a Swedish or at least some nordic design - whaleback deck, etc. Probably from the 50'ies or 60'ies - later they moved on to plastic.

I have seen countless boats like this one, but this is the only one with windows in the whaleback section!

Any idea where the shot was taken?

Re: Nautical Oddities

Someone needs to direct that guy who posted on CF that he wanted a free boat to go to Moss Landing.

Even just a pressure wash could do wonders in that place.

Yea.

Polishing a turd is always a good way to spend time. If you are in love.

Of course, when you're in love you are sure it's a diamond in the rough.
