Looks like somebody made a tiller out of a question mark.

 

Maybe they weren't sure which way to steer?

Bob,

 

You frequently stress that "its what the client wanted." Why do you bother? I mean, assuming most of your clients have the attention to detail that Ish does, you could sell them anything and tell them it WAS what they asked for. I realize I have just simplified your life. You can thank me later.

Anom: I had a client like that once. He was Canadian. He had a lot of money. But he could not read drawings at all. He would just nod and smile. Every time I met him at the boatyard it was total surprise to him. "Oh,,,that's what I'm getting."

Here's what it would look like painted yellow.

 

attachicon.gifZOTL.jpg

post-95343-0-91014600-1460167111_thumb.j

 

I once asked someone in Burrard Civic what they thought the purpose of those um, waterslides, ramps, whatever, in the stern of that thing were for he said "landing that big salmon!"

 

Bet that thing would really move out w/a tall carbon rig and deep blade w/tungsten bulb.

 

 

If by "move out" you mean "sink amazingly quickly" you might be right.

 

 

No no no. Saws-all out the interior glass in carbon sandwich bulkheads + 8' carbon prod what a sleeper!

This just showed up in my marina. It's power but it's so unusual that I thought it deserved posting here. It made me think of Gardens old Tlingit although it's 1/3 the size and appears designed for high speed - 300 Merc and those multiple transverse lifting strakes or whatever the offshore powerboat guys call them.

 

I admire it simply for being so unusual.

 

By curious chance, the old aluminium Russian Volga hydrofoiler is on the other side of the marina - two of the strangest powerboats in the city only 5 docks apart.

I think the chopped bow and oversized house make that one a candidate for Admiration by the Society.

 

It's pretty cool but probably not all that fast by powerboat standards. More like an ocean racer crossed with a minivan.

We saw a huge contemporary schooner heading up Howe Sound today. Looked to be 125' - 140', dark blue hull, white deck and equal height masts. Biggest sailboat I can remember seeing in local waters - made Oriole look pretty ordinary size.

 

Any of the locals know anything about it?

I see what you mean about M5. I just ogled a video of it and you can't actually see the crew they're so ant-like. I've always thought it's a sign of a nicely drawn boat that you can't tell how big it is without something to scale it to.

Would save a shit load of sanding and Deks Olje or Awlwood varnishing prep, that's for sure. But would it be as satisfying?

Satisfying? Sitting here with my fingers permanently stained with Awlwood, which makes me look like I have a grotesque birthmark across both hands, I feel precious little satisfaction. But it will come. Only so many microns to go and it'll all be over . . .

They need to start making wood-grain PVC.

Would save a shit load of sanding and Deks Olje or Awlwood varnishing prep, that's for sure. But would it be as satisfying?

Lovely.

 

 

I dunno. Those PVC pipes sticking out make it look like a construction site to me. Yeah, some camo on them would be satisfying.

Satisfying? Sitting here with my fingers permanently stained with Awlwood, which makes me look like I have a grotesque birthmark across both hands, I feel precious little satisfaction. But it will come. Only so many microns to go and it'll all be over . . .

Greetings from Canet-en-Roussillion…

The first time I saw Mirabella V she was anchored off a nice cove at Nisos Paros. This was pre the Pendennis, Falmouth refit. That year I also witnessed first-hand the sails might of the Maltese Falcon – uber canvass power made real.

I’m now here in a key French centre for Multihulls, Catana have a large factory here, though not pushing much out above 50ft currently… there are a fair few new Balti’s awaiting owner pick-up…

Tis busy, busy here in le Zone Technique with daily crane movements getting floaty stuff ready for the Med’ summer season. All things multihull service are handled by Pascal and his boyz at BMS.

Also Bernard Gallay brokers a fair few boats on the local marina.

First up Paradox… undergoing clean-up for sale….

http://www.bernard-g...ale/PARADOX-380

Beniguet an alloy 86 was here too when I arrived, a few weeks back…but she schleped to Palma for the top boat tottie sales show starting tomorrow…

http://www.bernard-g...le/BENIGUET-957

Still here on pontoon are a few Briand flagships… ‘SV Leo’ the first CNB76 to ever splash….

 

H0JJHtH.jpg

 

The docks at Canet are also a new Jeanneau/Dufour/Prestige  EU pick up centre for proud owners… A rather lovely metallic AWLGRIP champagne hulled 64, also designed by Briand looks particullary slick… if/when the sun shines…

TCqe9xW.jpg

 

There are wooden-tops but nowt as pretty as lying in Saint Trop’s… the Golfe du Lion has real bite... it oft roars... so muchly things stayed tied to the dock...

 

We're off to Palma end of month... so if stuff of note lurks there I'll check in again...

Toodle-pip y'all.....

 

:o

John Atkins designed her, the design name is Florence Oakland. I'm guessing that the photo shows me wondering how far she'll carry her way, and whether I'm going to fall short of the mooring or overshoot it.

Atkin wrote in Practical Small Boat Designs that the original Florence Oakland was lost to fire, and the owners had a duplicate built. So I guess they liked it fine.

Burma... sweetest looking Motorsailer ever.  RO Wilson.  Looks like they painted her black?!?   She was sort of yellowy beige until last year.

 

 

 

In the same motorsailer dept. While Burma is a sweet sweet ride, I did fall in love at first sight after seeing Rhodes' Sea Diamond up close after a major reft a bunch of years ago.  If I was megayacht rich, Sea Diamond would be just fine.

The S&S Motorsailers of that era were plagiarized from Rhodes.  I guess everyone borrowed from each other, and William Hand and RO Wilson certainly defined the form from the era.  Rhodes extended on their work and drew a whole series of amazing Motorsailers going from 50 to over 100'.  The S&S copies are all nice because they are basically copycats of the Rhodes boats!  That said I would be plenty proud to pull into harbors with a mint vintage S&S/A&R double ender motorsailer.

That's a slick looking little dodger. Doesn't look like it protects much more than the companionway though. I'd want it a bit bigger. Yeah, and a bit uglier. I think it could still avoid that other thread...

Greetings from Pantalán del Mediterráneo,  Palma....Mallorca.

(Thought I’d share the boat porn lurking here on our dock)

First off, my personal fave… the very Dutch ‘AXONITE’  the K&M69 is directly berthed opposite us, yes I was invited been on-board for a looksee (obviously)…. Johan who I worked with last year painted her.

HJ6Svoh.jpg

 

Then the lovely Wally ‘ALEXIA’ my namesake is at the top of the dock, at the harbour office…

 

TjHgafB.jpg

 

Opposite her is sitting ‘RED DRAGON’…. Their Wally tender team left for Sardinia 06:00 yesterday…so to be on-station when the majestic sloop arrives…

 

U27JVgk.jpg

 

SLIM the big Gunboat arrived a few days back too, one of PJs finer works of art…

epT8Y9M.jpg

 

MOONBIRD arrived today - but all noir - what were they thinking?!?…Not the colour at all for continual days at 30c temps…!?!?

 

On the next dock over each one its own mini-marina...we have a J’BOAT and super elegant 84 Van de Stadt HEIDENSKIP, the yacht my boss of last year almost bought…she’s looking lovely and well cared for and is still on market with someone who’s got access to deep pockets…

That’s all for now folks…. and toodle-pip and bon voyage.

I remember when the Rocket 40 first came onto Lake Macquarie, originally Buckle Up, to become Redback.

The new owners wanted to confirm / dispel a rumour that it was possible to water-ski behind the boat.

So off they go down to just off the 16's club, put a guy in the water with 2 skis, put up a chute, and from a deep water start, pulled the guy across the lake skiing.

 

20?? years later, there may only be 2-3 yachts now on the lake with that ability...

Dibley Commander 66

Saw one for sale on yachtworld yrs ago, fell in love with it!!! All electric running rigging of course among other cool things like duel carbon wheels/the dink garage/portable bbq stearn deck...

Laurie Davidson helped design it so you know it's balanced and sails like a rocket...

Anyways, those lotto tickets ever pay off, I'm getting one of these for sail and a Pershing 66ish for my stinkpot needs...of course both will have Capt/stewardess to make sure we don't run into anything or my glass doesn't lose its ice to liquid ratio...

Ha... A great design and one of the most enjoyable of clients. 

Just a heads up, Laurie Davidson only designed the bulb, but can't say his philosophy wasn't in my head when I was penning her up.

*pours Dibley Marine crew shots*

Yeah you kiwis think up/design/build nice boats! Thanks for correcting me about Laurie, I thought he designed Dibley Commander 66 flow...no disrespect or disinformation intended...
Kinda found of Davidson 50 pilot saloon too, though its traditional & not anything spectacular...I think I confuse Dibley brand with Laurie Davidson branded boats at times; your patience is appreciated.

I see you're doing a Dibley Commander 100plus footer...I suppose it flattens out 15footers on the nose, surfs down Mavericks legendary waves & does circles around the likes of "The Reagan" at full hull speed though the Commander 100plus is fully reefed otherwise the wake of the Dibley Commander 100plus doing circles makes The Reagan ride fetchy, right??? J/k..

Keep on keepin on fine folks at Dibley Marine...you give me great material to return conversation with island packet owners LOL...l always ask them why they settled for an island packet when they could/should have bought a Dibley...

I worked at Pijnen and built this puppy (Hull and deck). The owner wanted a real offshore boat  , he sails this solo from Holland to Norway etc, hence the higher freeboard. And it has a little bulwark.

Other then that, he keeps nothing in the boat, sails with almost empty tanks. He really got the bug.

20?? years later, there may only be 2-3 yachts now on the lake with that ability...

 

My son did a passage on a Rocket 50 cruising boat from Brisbane to Opua last year. Great boat , only finished building in 2011, features in Jim Young's book.

I first met those guys in 2011 in Tonga,It was their maiden voyage .... they'd come up in a system and had 26 knots on the log on the burst all loaded up .

Looks like Laurie Davidson will be staying at my shack for a night next month. That should be fun. He's lining up a trip to the PNW.

 

How cool is that!

We've somewhere between 1500 and 2000 hours aboard one of his 1975 designs this season, not bad for weekend warriors I think. Paid for it , gotta use it eh.

I've also had a few miles on Riada II and Grand Prix( 46 and 47 ft) Just great  ocean boats , lazy eat up the miles.

Riada and Riada II ( 1975 and 1980, multi skin cold moulded kauri boats)

245_4597_1.jpg

 

Grand Prix in Noumea.

 

IMG_4076.jpg

 fantastic boat , refitted and maintained without regard to expense  and  sitting on the market here in Auckland, no one wants her. She's a steal for what she is. We didn't do any 200 mile days on that noumea/ brisbane trip but we did do a very lazy 110 miles in 12 hours before the breeze dropped away.

Easy easy easy.
