Hello!

Aloha Sea People,

My name is Jack and I'm new here. I'm an Aussie currently based in the Pacific Nor' West. I've spent the past couple of years exploring the seas and sounds from Oregon to Alaska on different types of water craft. Its truly an amazing part of the planet. I have followed the daily forum feeds for a while and thoroughly enjoy the nature of the global community you have created here. As a new chapter on the water unfolds for me I am looking forward to participating and assisting in whatever ways I can.

Cheers,

Jack

Hello DL, That is correct, she is a steel hull. 10 Gauge steel with a double chine. Robust and sea-kindly.
Thanks for asking.

Re: Hello!

After posting I searched for some info on them. That's a good looking boat! Excellent for cruising. She looks like she is one of the few you could really take anywhere! Is it a full keel with rudder attached or does she have skeg? I didn't see any shots of the keel in my search.

Don, she was built up your way. Around Coquitlalm I believe. She is a full keel with the rudder hung behind the prop so no skeg, it fact.
