ID the boat challenge.

What kind of boat is this? It looks like it is steel and by chance there is a smaller version of it in the next bay. I think both are Canadian registered so maybe a Canadian company.

nolatom will become famous soon enough
It's steel? From the photo I'd have guessed that some very tall person took an old 1980s IOR-type hull , took the deck off, and home-built everything above the original rail and forward of the original stem.

Now they have standing headroom for an NBA team, and an odd-looking boat.


I know, this was not a useful answer. Sorry.

I showed it to my wife. She wants to know if that is a gun turret on the cabin.

No gun turret I might swing by today and have a closer look. The smaller one in steel for sure and looks even odder as it sits very high on the water. It is also a ketch rig. I must remember my camera next time I dinghy round there.

I imagine it's what would come if an ant eater mated with a rhino.

I'm with Mike on this one, ugly, but from the solar and wind equipment would say it is set up for living off the hook. Should have LOTS of headroom.
