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.

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 ;-)

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.

Not only that, it almost certainly will have modern lights (electric, not whale oil) and plumbing, and the crew will not get scurvy. What is the point of "re-creating" the experience of sailing an 1813 boat without bringing in the experience of sailing in 1813? It reminds me of the large number of Civil War re-enactors who argue on internet forums over the uniform buttons.

 

OTOH, a topsail schooner is cool. Fun to sail, a very different animal than a modern boat. Give it modern line and blocks, build it out of fiberglass, hey now it's much much less of a PITA! But it is a misrepresentation to call it "1813" anything.

Of course, if you build it to 1813 standards, the USCG will not certify it to carry passengers, or as a school ship, as it would seriously fail to meet current safety standards.  Even the Hermoine, which was built to very exacting standards, still had to have an engine, electrical power, modern nav systems, etc...

 

Not sure anyone actually has the original plans, nor even a line drawing for the Porcupine...so its hard to say exactly how "accurate" or inaccurate this one is.  All that said, I'm not sure they should try to imply that it is a representation of a particular ship (Porcupine) but rather should give it an original name, and say it is a representation of a small topsail schooner of that era...

Oooh.  I want that one for a tender.  I'd have to scandalize the gunwale with padding though.

No padding on the dinghy please it is far too pretty.

Stick the padding all over the exposed parts of your yacht instead :lol:

You think the designer and builder have lumps in their throats that the ship floats on her lines as it rolls down the way?

Totally useless video here:  (Taken on board. Basically can't seen anything of interest, unless you are really into rope.)

 

Home page here: http://www.shababoma...to-muscat?p=18# Lots of pictures in the Gallery, but I didn't see one of her under sail take off-ship. I didn't go through them all, though.

 

As pretty a tall ship as I've seen pictures of.

 

If the designers and builders were doing their thing right, they knew how far she was going to roll and exactly what her limit of positive stability was in the condition in which she was launched. Still, a lump in the throat is probably inescapable.

Is "I have a mast there" a good enough excuse for the offset companionway?

If only that rudder could swing up and down like a centerboard. Knowing how effective a rudder foil is in the vertical position wouldn't that be a neat trick.

How can you be so obtuse?

 

 

I think it was a skill-testing question. However, what was it called on it's stern is the issue.

 

This would probably not get by the board.

Likely the board would not check urban dictionary even if they do occaisionally do a noontime work out at the YMCA

Yes Russell it sure is one nice little dinghy.

Des had a remarkable design talent and his legacy is perfectly captured in this simple but stunning example.

Built by a local craftsman who can be contacted through this Trademe listing.

http://www.trademe.c...px?id=998381333

I would very much like one myself.

Talking of Des Townsons legacy this pretty well sums it up for me.

I rarely presume to offer an aesthetic improvement, but I wonder if the forward smaller windows would look better with a little arc to their bottom lines- sort of mimicking the doghouse windows. The basic shapes look nicely balanced in the picture.

Townson's slightly bigger yacht designs are pretty too. 

 

Check out 38'er, Belle Ami and 40'er, Cezanne, below. He certainly was a master at stepped cabin design. Sadly, he died in 2008.

Pictures do not do Caper justice.

In the flesh she is one very very simple no nonsense sail boat.

She looks so right and proper, easily capable of the task she was designed to do,sail bloody well,and today's plasticated crap box boat bullshit designs should all hang their heads in collective shame.

IMHO that is.

I've never seen a bilge that nice even on a brand new boat.

 

For that matter most boat cabinetry isn't that nice.

I have seen quite a lot of yacht interiors and cabinetry over my lifetime and each and everyone apart from the massed produced examples has its very own unique tale to tell.

Here is just one, Noel and Litara Barrott built this Mundie designed cruiser and circumnavigated.

In my opinion the whole thing works and works well.

Bob, this link would be your best option.

Sina is one of two yachts Noel and Litara built and circumnavigated.

The other yacht was Masina a 38ft Jack Brooke design that now resides in Australia.

http://forum.woodenb...-for-the-Tasman

My wife and I had the opportunity to spend the afternoon aboard Sina a while ago with Litara. 

She is one of those yachts that one's first and lasting impressions is of a yacht well designed and executed to such a highly competent standard. Nothing flimsy, unnecessary nor blingy on this unique yacht, which I am sure you will agree is not an easy goal to achieve by any standard..

Ha ,the bilge and forepeak colour is a doozy and the Yanmar 30hp puffs its little foo foo valve to push Sina,s 25 tons along.

One not so small detail that really caught my eye was the incredible standard of the interior paint work finish, it really looked sprayed but was in fact Litara's own brush work.

Noel and Litara have Sina on the market and they are I believe in the process of completely rebuilding a Rhodes 33.

I rolled with laughter when Litara describes plucking Noel from a wee unplanned trip out of the cockpit over the side into a foul southern ocean sea and when asked why did she, her reply was somebody had to save this poor fool of a man who can only ever think about yachts.

Caught my wife's eye briefly and saw a familiar flicker of one female understanding another regarding a fool of a man and yachts. Somehow I wondered would my wife return to pick me up.

That is the boat of my dreams. Colin Mudie was/is an amazingly versatile designer. Loved his powerboats.

 

I would make one small change. I'd add some beam so I could make the saloon bench seats wider. I need another 12" of beam.

If not, I could suffer with what is there just fine.
