Nothing like a dramatic flotsam shot to sell your dinghy. https://vancouver.craigslist.org/van/bpo/d/surrey-7-foot-8-dingy/6844027406.html

I see that this boat is featured in this month’s cover photo of a local boating magazine, “Freshwater News.”  Non-ironically, as far as I can tell.  Only a silhouette, but that’s more admiration than most of our boats get.  

 

Hmm... just noticed there may be some remarkable auxilliary craft nestled on the other side...

#11507 that is just SO GOOD.

 

I firs thought the use of the flag to keep the sun off the sailcover is some next-level thinking, but then the mirrors on the lifeline stanchions came along to take my breath away.

OK, since the web page doesn't seem to have been updated in years, I clipped & scanned:

2100077728_fwnclip.thumb.jpg.1d336540271a2ca2ac3c6168306acd90.jpg

I suppose that if you moor your boat between the public pier and a scenic view, your boat will get photographed a lot, no matter what it is.  

Is having an instantly recognizable silhouette a good thing or a bad thing?

The winch farm must be due to the offset companionway, which is due to the mizzen mast. The stern has a unique look as does the hard boiled hard top. The cutter furler looks a bit small. https://comoxvalley.craigslist.org/boa/d/mansons-landing-steel-sailboat-horizon/6845543382.html

There's a winning combo for you. Super fast to shift a line from one winch to another.

He did it twice (another close pair under the dodger).

Also notice the mossy sturdy Canadian bull rail on the adjacent dock!

We can keep the boat in the water year 'round, and most folks do. There are some boats that have been in the water for well over 10 years. Personally, I think it's a best to haul once every year or two, and I try to do that.

That has been around the thread a couple of times already.  Notable only because they apparently missed their dumpster deadline. Probably it was too darned cold at the time...  Although a bonfire might have been nice.

Ooops. Seems I missed it on the first go rounds, then was fooled by the fact that the current ad was posted just four days ago.  Can't believe someone hasn't snagged it so their kids could have a pirate ship instead of a tree house. Or, as you say, an awesome one-off bonfire.
