Coolboats to admire

Recommended Posts

 

the pilot berth looked pretty cool. That shadow is weird on the bow, it almost looks like it's concave.

 

What's a B&G control head btw?

I still have the blueprint of the accommodation plan from my time at the Illingworth and Primerose office. The accommodation plan was clever for the purpose. Yes, the bow has a slight flair ie; concave. The boat had problems, being of light displacement, the deadrise should not have been so deep, resulting in a very tender boat with directional and stability questions.

B&G really precursors to the marine electronic world.

Not knowing anything about boat design, how does a boat commissioned by one the most famous if not the most famous sailor if his day get so fucked up?

 

and what's with the flair? Looks odd. Does it have some advantage?

I also dig the Sweden Yacht next to the S&S sailboat, but on looks the S&S is light years ahead.

 

She's an Oyster 41. Steven Jones One Ton design, built by Landamores.

Its close to a Tumlaren but it's stern is more upright, keel obviously different (slightly deeper?) and slightly more flare in the bow. Also the cabin is a dead ringer for the ones they put on the wooden Top Hats.. I'm thinking since Tumlarens were popular in Melbourne someone wanted a slightly stiffer and drier Tumlaren.

 

Maybe Ron Swanson drew this for someone...

 

Do you know it's history, Gybeset?

It's a 1920s Halvorsen, cabin is a later add-on

 

 

Fantastic it looks lower wooded than in your first photos. ... and it was designed before the Tumlaren.

 

The Halvorsen's were smart blokes. They were putting spade rudders on boats before most other designers were still hanging them off keels let alone skegs.

I like how the bow of that boat bulges out a bit. I'm sure there's a name for that, but I still don't know it.

 

Why is there an enormous winch in the cockpit of that beauty Weyalan posted?

 

Much more pedestrian than the recent posts, but I saw this on the harbor yesterday and thought it was cool. It was sailing in light air, but we didn't get close while the sails were up. I seem to remember seeing this before and possibly asking what it is, but can't recall...

So, the flag is Danish but the shed looks Tasmanian.

Which corner of the world is it in?

 

 

OK I have to ask. How did you determine the shed was Tasmanian?

The "bulging bow" has traditionally been called "flam" although I have never used the term and ever known anyone else who used it. Flam is the opposite of "flare".

OK I have to ask. How did you determine the shed was Tasmanian?

The shed is made of recycled hardwood and corrugated iron, with corrugated fiberglass sheets for the "windows"

Look at the roof sheets, see the rows of light holes in the tin? It was used somewhere else and they were the original nail holes.

They are in the peaks of the corrugations, not the valleys, so presumably don't leak much.

 

There is no way that shed complies with any sort of building code, just look at the way the fluoro lights are suspended from the roof.

 

Weyalan also comes from Tassie, so it was a fair bet.

Wow!

Wow, indeed.

It makes me happy that there are still master shipwrights & craftsmen in this small, unfashionable corner of the world who can do work this good. Will there still be in 50 years time?

 

Yes, probably as many as there are today. It's been a specialty trade for decades now and for all that time people have been boo hooing about how "Nobody can do that anymore - it's a lost art". I've heard the same thing applied to pinstriping cars, gold leafing "Objet's D'Art", sculpted plaster ceilings and other types of small volume hand crafts that used to be done on a production basis. The fact that it has been reduced to a small scale does not equate with "Lost art".

 

Keeriste, people even went all weepy about that scumbag Jesse James "Reviving a lost art" because he was using a sand bag and an English Wheel to form gas tanks for choppers.

 

I can buy an English Wheel from my favourite tool store - they have them in stock. I can get a boat like that built or restored like that in a couple of places on Vancouver Island - Jespersons and Philbrooks, not to mention Port Townsend - need a 90' wooden schooner?.

 

All it takes is money - the skills are out there and will remain available.

I guessed it must be for the mainsheet, but what I can't see is where the sheet would come from. The boom, but via what route? Is that thing over the tiller a traveler?

 

I love flan. Now I know what flam is. I doubt I will ever use the word. I'd have to be talking to someone who knew what it meant.

Tom:

I'm thinkin' the mainsheet might come straight from that wee trav over the tiller straight to that winch. Remember these were real men who sailed these boats. None of that "Oooh I don't want to have to step over that" shit. They worked the boat and they made personal adjustments.

That mainsheet winch is an old Barlow Winch made in Granville, Sydney Australia. Barlow introduced computer assisted milling in the early eighties but I'm willing to bet those winch drums and components were milled by a machinist prior to computer milling.

 

The tolerances were finer and those winches probably spin more smoothly under load than any modern winch.

Here's the kiss of death:

I'd sooner buy a boat built and designed by Beppo Marx.

 

 

Except that the boat was designed by Phil Bolger and the builder put a modified house on on it. My friend Pat has one built true to Bolger's plans. It's a fun little boat and he has a blast taking it all around from the Mississippi Gulf Islands to Ft Walton and all points in between.

Mr. Moon beat me to it, but I'd say the rotten plywood bottom is probably the reason it hasn't sold.

 

Notice that I have not yet put up an ad for that old Com-Pac 16 I was given? That's because it's not ready to sail. A boat that must be repaired before being used is very hard to sell for any reasonable price. Projects are cheap. Boats are expensive.

Keel and stern post are different shapes too, The entire stern is quite different. The Tumlaren has much more overhang aft.. The Tumlaren is very slack bilged while the Australian boat shows a shaddow in that profile pic that I think indicates a firm turn to the bilge.

Fascinating! Wikipedia describes it like an unpredictable katabatic winter wind that has a recorded high of 160 knots. What a severe contrast to the mild weather of a Mediterranean summer!

 

The only thing about the big winds of NZ is that it is only a `hop skip' from the Southern Ocean and the big seas those winds develop are the real story of those weather systems.

In the modern world there are so many dam boats that waterfront villages, ports, anchorages become constipated with goof balls on sun burnt boats, sporting noisy windmills , barking dogs , who view small villages as a convient place to dump thier garbage.... the local people who live in these villages regard you as a stinking sardine.

Slug: Thank you for posting the pictures of the 'Hermann Helms', it's the lifeboat stationed in Cuxhaven, North Sea, it's my birthplace. Brings back memories :..) . Those are really brave guys. In Germany, sea rescure lies mostly in the hands of the DGzRS (Deutsche Gesellschaft zur Rettung Schiffbrüchiger, a tongue twister even by German standards). The 'Gesellschaft' is a private foundation. It is completely privately funded and relies heavily on private donations. Sailors can contribute their share through the famous 'Schiffchen': little donation boxes in the shape of a rescue vessle from the old days (when they used to tow them into the boiling sea with horses, see above). You will find them in pretty much every yacht club in Germany. So whenever you should come over, feel free to give some. Now, that's a cool boat :)

Tom,

Both version carry trampoline netting forward, the MP-52 Trawler gets a small recessed cockpit forward of house on the foredeck for lounging. The plan was to go for more of a mesh Hobie style trampoline on Powercat since burying the bows wasn't such a concern... The only way to create and keep a cat fuel efficient is build and design it light.

How about dinner Christmas eve? Lorrie's birthday and all that. We do have some tradition going here. I'll try to cook good. I'm getting all excited for the Advocate on the 16th. Anom is bringing his new French girl friend here two days after that. It's going to be a busy time at the shack.

Christmas Eve sounds great. Unfortunately among the other tides of life, L's dad just had open heart surgery, and etc. etc., so a rain check? One of our favorite traditions is/was the dinner. Much warmth there. Life & time will make distances shorter, no?

Its a different design as well but I'll take the comments... Designed for that 10-12 knot average speed sweet spot and influenced by a little of the old and new... Let me know what you think... For a 34 yr old with a dream and a passion??

 

A 52' cat will average 10-12 knots?

What's wrong with an average 10-12 knot cruise speed in almost all conditions in a catamaran trawler concept? Much better than you would get in a standard trawler. Hell even the cruising king, Dashew, 64, 78, 90 ft motorboat passage makers are designed to average 10-12 knts? Remember we are talking catamaran trawler, not full on power cat. Results from the latest ARC show the top boats only averaging 10 or so? Is that not fast enough... Ohh wait I just saw your user name.. My bad.. :)

Given that powerboats are appearing in this thread, I'll voice admiration for the deadrise workboats that populate the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries.
