Allweather 26

I like this design. I want to build something similar. Can anyone recommend a design like this? The Redwing 26 was kind of similar but not a double-ender.
Something for two people. easy on fuel. Towable behind my 3/4 truck. Small Diesel with a keel cooler and a dry stack. Coastal cruiser to Alaska.

Re: Allweather 26

It seems like you have to cross enough open water and likely take some decent wind in exposed anchorages on this trip. A boat that short is going to pitch a bunch.

I get the trailer ability but maybe something longer and and sleeker? Was just thinking about maybe a 36-38' power proa. Demountable and water ballast in ama to prevent rolling.

Obviously much different, but you never see these tiny tugs anywhere but the ICW

Re: Allweather 26

Albins are similarly designed. Check out some of the shorter Tug designed boats, I think Ranger just came out with a 26 footer, don't hold me to this. The reality of Seattle to Alaska boating is that most boats will work, some better than others obviously. Sometimes I wish I had gone the larger trailerable boats and go to Alaska in a series of jumps with the boat trailer combo.
