We're on the Far Side of the World, Marty.. unfortunately. ...but hope to visit up that way sometime this year or next.

If you're coming over, you'll need a packed lunch.

Yes indeedy.

About the only thing that keeps me going is that the old girl has some historical significance over here. Sure, that and 3 bucks-fifty can buy a cup of coffee at the club, but at least there's some point to it - and doing this sort of thing can reveal impressive craftsmanship from ages ago.

eg.: It's a bit hard to tell from the pics, but the planking is a little unusual for the era. If there was a hard way to plank this boat, that's how they've done it!! The below-waterline planks start high in the bow, yet each are individually tapered and shaped to fit within a 1/4" of each other in 3 dimensions. Further along the hull, 'stealers' (where a plank is joined into another to increase width) have been used both topsides and below with the same accuracy on the curve, requiring a heap more planning on the part of the designer and builder to avoid messing up. I've always thought the craftsmanship in the mast was impressive, but the hull itself must have been extraordinarily difficult to build.. and it's all typically covered with a coat of paint.

Anyways, truly amazing craftsmanship of a kind you'll never see on a plastic/alloy/steel boat.

Re: OMG, She's Topless!

One fellow in my YC has a 1929 Lake Union Dream boat. Granted it is a power boat. But the boat has MANY best in show trophies! It is a beauty.

There is also a Q-boat IIRC from the 20's that is still being sailed and raced locally. Also a beautiful boat.

Here in the seattle area there are a number of old woodies with historical significance also. Even BP would agree to that!

Altho a few years ago, "one" of ie the last schooner that plyd the coast delivering wood from Seattle to southern Cal in the early days of seattle had to have a chain saw taken to it. I think that would have taken many millions to fix it. Probably cheaper to start from scratch in all honesty.

As one wood boat lover to another, don't forget to have at least a quart of varnish on board for touch ups!

Hey mate what would you call that cover - her bra?

Gorgeous boat indeed, topless or fully dressed.
