Make no mistake, even up here in the "Great White North" the sun gets hot enough to do that!

Guys,

Don't you know a mobile Chesapeake Bay Duck Blind when you see one? Fools the hell out of them......then POW.

I think the guy is pretty talented. Imagine the modifications he had to do to his air compressor and nail gun to shoot through fiberglass.

Re: I'm truly at a loss for words...REALLY!

Also look at the second photo. Take a good look at the rigging.

And is that a hatch or a residential sky light over the v-berth?

Yeah, except that installation wouldn't work on a house, either.

Re: I'm truly at a loss for words...REALLY!

Hey, in six pages of posts I haven't seen anybody name the make of the boat...

It's a Henry, a Henry 208, I think.

Re: I'm truly at a loss for words...REALLY!

In six pages of posts I haven't seen one from the guy who owns the thing.
I wonder if out enjoying his odd-looking boat, and not home sitting in front of a computer like the rest of us?

In fact, I'll bet he doesn't even have a computer.
I'll bet he just has some old sailing books. Maybe a fishing pole.
A girlfriend. Some beer.
And he thinks he can just go out and enjoy himself while the rest of us go broke making upgrades. What a jerk.

Re: I'm truly at a loss for words...REALLY!

The image of lines running taught across that much heavy abrasive surface area and what it would do to the sheath makes my teeth hurt thinking about it... May be newer looking lines but probably won't stay that way.

But I confess... The chimney is sweet.

Shoulda' opened up one of those portlights and taken a few interior pics for us. The settee is probably a couch with the legs sawed off and wedged in place...

hmmmmm... that gives me an idea...
