Am I correct that he hasn't moved that heap of junk in over a month?
Dropped the hook just off the Pirate Cove dock right after coming from Dauphine Island. His tracker ran for over a week until he turned it off on Nov 8th IIRC. He hasn't moved the boat but it seems to be moving itself steadily to the SE on its own probably due to soft muck bottom and the NE fronts that have come through since and lack of scope. I checked the webcam at Pirates Cove this morning and he is much further out toward the ICW now.

Nope. He’s having too much fun rigging one sail. He’s also busy trying to figure out how to prevent hydraulic fluid from discharging from an exposed pressure fitting that leaked oil the whole time they were using the hydraulic winch to raise the sail. By the time he went back in to check on the fittings they had made, he saw the oil on the sole and looked overboard and Didn’t see anything so he went back to messing around with the sails again then pumped more fluid out. It ran down through a hatch and a hole in the sole, ran behind the laundry machine and down a drain behind it. He sure is stupid. At least in this video he admitted it.

This would be a fine case study for students at Westlawn and other schools that teach navel architecture/design/engineering. You never want to be the N.A. whose name gets stuck on a POS like Sv/Stinker!

Even Brent Swain regretted his initial involvement any connection with Seeker. I heard rumors Dug started with Swain's 65' plans but parted ways when then Dug stretched to 74', increased plate thickness & doubled the pilot house size. I'd love to know the real story.

It would be something reading these two bullshit artists riffing off of each other playing the blame game......I am easily entertained.

They're gangplanks, I think he broke one when he hit something though.

Holy fuck! This photo really shows up how exquisitely delusional Dugg is. Deep V POS stern ornament garbage, which never did get up on plane. As for Dugg's idea of a gangplank.....I just hope we get to see photos of Sv/Stinker somewhat off shore, with all sails raised but just before it rolls under.........Thanks for posting the photo!

Doug claims Seeker's initial drawings were from a Jack Carson, based on Paul Liebenberg's 65' Swain inspired/ Swain assisted Junk. So, maybe a case of Dug grifting another grifter Brent Swain's design w/o Brent Swain direct involvement. Narcissists typically repel each other.

Speaking of steel boats, does anyone remember that YouTube guy in Tahoe or Big Bear, someplace like that that was building a boat and craning it around with trees and chains?
I don't remember seeing any outcome.

Was that rusty junk not put on hold while the designer builder took a road trip in a camper? Then came the Covid lock downs....but his boat was towed to a parking lot, I seem to recall, at a marina, with the intention of one day getting back to finishing her up and launching. But then perhaps I am recalling different boat.

I've wondered if the idea of the house roof coming to contact with pilings or a wall taller than a dock caught Doug by surprise.
