Re: What is this?

Re: What is this?

Last year we saw her in St Michael's as well as Shaw Bay. I will never forget as I was so transfixed staring at her i ran aground coming out of St Michaels.

Knew it. Works every time and almost always for charter.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure that's not the same boat. This boat had a reverse shear stern and different cabin top and I'm pretty sure it was closer to 70' than 120'.

Re: What is this?

Looks similar to the Oyster 82 that was docked on the end of my row; but the coach roof line is a bit different; could be a custom pilothouse design of the Oyster 82...

I didn't bother comparing, as the poster said they saw it.

Too bad you didn't get a name.

Do those look like dual anchors on each side of the bow in your pic? If so, I think that would be pretty unusual for 70 ft.

Wrong GITANA...

The boat in question is a 112' S&S design built by Derecktor... Chartering her looks like a steal @ a mere $50+K/week... I wonder how many of the people who do so realize beforehand how much of the Chesapeake will be off limits, given her 13' draft?

Ahhh, yes... yet ANOTHER American (OK, presumably) yacht owner proudly flying the flag of a foreign tax haven... Don't ANY of these guys have an ancestor who might have paid the ultimate price, at some far-flung place like Bastogne, or Tarawa, and been returned to their homeland in a box draped with the Stars & Stripes?

Just sayin'... Sorry, just a particular pet peeve of mine...

That looks like the one, though I'm surprised I missed the mark on the length so badly. I guess on open water like that its tough to tell. I circled her at a respectful distance and guessed she was double the length of my 36 or more. I guess the distance must have been a bit more respectful than I thought.
