As it has a traveller, it must be anything but Beneteau...

To give Beneteau the benefit of the doubt...

Most Beneteau buyers don't really understand why a boat would want a traveler, let alone would ever adjust it.

I take that back! Most Beneteau owners adjust the traveler to make is easier to get to the swim/boarding step.

Husshshshshshs. You have no idea what can of worms you're about to open. Now move slowly backwards and keep your eyes on the Sh... and pretend you weren't here... 

 

 

If you must know > CA, the thread regarding the world's best super duper 53ft somethingsomething performance. It's a madhouse.

Where’s the water gonna go from the cockpit? A step,  seriously?  

A large swing down transom with large scuppers if they don’t want to swamp out

Something where you can’t turn a winch handle all the way around.....

The wheel will only have one spoke and the chances of banging a knuckle are about the same as hitting a wave. Say, one in a million?

Will it be an aft curved spoke with a speed knob?

That has to be the new LIGNIN 75 design being built by Georgia-Pacific in Pensacola.

 

Here is a page from one of their partners showing the new organic carbon fiber source they are promoting.

And I was merely going to cook wood to make my cabin longer lasting...now I can go carbon fiber.

What goes around comes around.

Original precursor for structural carbon fibers was rayon... made from wood pulp.

New 45' J Boat discussed in Stu's interview?

Laminated cardboard should lower the price considerably.

Maybe it is a modified  Glen-L do it your self project.

I changed my mind. Maybe this new mythical Wyliecat?

Shop floor looks also similar. Mainly in chaos. These stringers in the background, looks similar.

This is an old pic, not of the suspect we look for.

I'm lost on the boat in question but chimed in to point out that all those trying to determine if the building can help them nail it down are missing a key bit of info. The building is a pre-fab metal building (or "Butler" building, to use the name of the industry leader), one of tens or hundreds of thousands of very similar design around the country and the world. They're one of the cheapest ways to enclose a large volume, thus unsurprisingly will be the building of choice for many boat shops. Not a useful metric here.

The type of building doesn't matter, common or rare.

But...

The stuff hanging on the walls, general cleanliness or messiness, other visible work are all clues. Even how much attention is given to protection from rain and/or cold can greatly narrow down geographic regions.

Except that the difference in beams and their color, building height and condition of the workspace and the North American location narrow the field a little. That, and many of us have been in multiple boat building operations, so there are clues for us to determine the location, but thanks for the information, it’s informative. 
 

When I buy my next prefab I’m going to look for a good deal on steelbuildingclassifieds.com 

There are always a few brand new prefabs out there at job sites where they misplaced footings, etc. on the concrete pour that makes the prefab dimensions useless at that site.

Lyman Morse 46.  New Design for them.  

I'm not fully convinced. The workshop doesn't look to be as high as the one of LM, the curve in the roof seems unlike the one of the plug and this cockpit view from above shows a single block, the first pic indicates a traveller. But that could, and should, be able to be changed even in the biilding process. Here is the LM 46
