This is cool because it's a 1954 and has NOT been restored.

 

FB post on Woodenboat says the owner used it once, found it to be "too fast" and stored it until 2015. Original trailer and everything.

And he left the "Coke" cooler in there all these years.  I wonder if there are some old steel cans of Schlitz in there.  You know, the kind that didn't have the pull tab and you need a church key to open them.

Is that motor a "Mark 20H" ?    Notice the prop. Michigan Wheel used to do small boat props. My Brother sent his "Hurricane 10" prop in 2 or 3 times for "a little more pitch", " a little less diameter" until his little "pumpkinseed" topped out at about 45.

Now for something completely different. This Hunt 225 was quite groundbreaking in 1936.

One of my "very comfort able" and very "ech savvy" clients invented the Palm Pilot. He built a big new house. When the architect asked him how he wanted to control the lighting he said, "switches".

 

Exactly. I'm an EE and chip nerd, we built a large complex house, but you bet your ass every single one of the lights was controlled by switches.

 

The 4-way for the upstairs hall was interesting ;-) Copper was cheap then, though.

 

Why would you want common-point control for something as simple as a bedroom? Kitchen lights are controlled from one or the other end of the kitchen - why do you want to do so from the living room? (or your fucking phone?)

 

I sometimes design web-connected ultra-secure industrial control systems. NFW would I ever do that in my house.

 

But look! I can now activate my Toto Washlet under-butt pressure wash toilet system remotely! Think of the bathroom fountain running for a week while we're away!

 

I did rig up a "fart fan" in the bathrooms triggered by humidity levels to dry the rooms out after showers. Farts are on their own; could probably add H2S sensors for them, but not looking forward to the testing cycle.

 

Edit: Didn't realize the post was so old... sorry ;-)

Good to hear common sense from someone in the biz.

 

As to your "Why would they" questions?

 

Because they can. That's the "thinking" behind a lot of overuse of technology. Software development people are about the worst for (and at) it.

Boats can be the same.

 

`Simple' can be so much more reliable and rewarding.

And faster. Lots of attempts to put canting keels on <8m sports boats, all have been slower than their fixed keel equivalents

What's the opposite of a simple sailboat?

 

How about a 1957 wooden 81' ex-Navy trainer with four (!) diesel engines driving two props?

 

Pretty cool. Must be a lot of work to keep it up.

I wonder if I have and time aboard her; was a mid from 79-83 and did a Youngster cruise on YPs.

 

Weren't fast or efficient, but were pretty good at training mids how to drive ships, and were reasonably comfortable out in the ocean.

 Kialoa III [?b-the one that's for sale] still has the same grinders - inter alia it means you can't bring the headsail sheets back to the cockpit, or should that be the "owner's enclosure"

I came across a reference to this project yesterday:

 

sheet1-version2-1024x683.jpg

 

http://bayfrontcente...oner-porcupine/

 

I can hear people lamenting the fiberglass hull, but it's easy to see that it saved a bunch of time (maybe a year?) and money. That could be the difference between ship and no ship.

 

The plans for the adaptation were done by Iver Franzen. I had not heard of him, but apparently he worked (or studied?) with Thomas Gillmer which is about a good a credit as you can have for this sort of project.

A Bruce Roberts Spray becomes a 1813 60ton Gunboat?  I don't think so.  Revisionist history is weird.  Why claim "We're re-creating" the thing is what it clearly isn't?  There is nothing at all wrong with building a schooner to take kids sailing, why not be honest about it?

There are three terms of art. A replica is when you make a new object as identical to an artifact. A reproduction is building a new object to the same plans and with the same material as the original, as if two were produced rather than one. Minor changes and improvements are allowed. A representation is an object made to demonstrate some of the characyeristics of the original.

This is a representation.

I've seen some of those Spray's, a couple of them very nicely built. They are virtually useless as sailboats - close cousins to a haystack. Better one of those hulls be finished this way than with the usual rig with some false illusions of it actually being able to sail.

 

At least this way the pirate factor is maximized. May get some young boys interested in boats.
