Re: Anybody know what this is?

Jones, I'm glad to see I'm not the only softhearted (maybe it should be soft-headed) sole out there that wants to adopt every orphan boat....

The truth is I got hooked on the "working on the boat" part. My current boat was a bit of a project boat when I got it. It sure made for a great bonding experience with my son, but maybe time spent sailing the current boat will be an even greater satisfaction.

I appreciate the input from all, and if I do go down this road, I'll be sure to post on it.

Pete

Thanks Pete
Douglas & McLeod 22?

Either that or it's an "Ugly 22" from Butt Boatworks - marketed as (you guessed it) the Butt Ugly 22.

I wasn't going to say anything, but now that it's out in the open, that is one ugly boat!

No side decks and a sloping fore deck? Run away.

I thought maybe it was the FUgly 20. Seriously, if it is free, the trailer alone would probably be worth $500. You could put less than $500 into it. Sail it for a while, then, cut it up and bury the evidence.

Maybe it is a Bayliner.... Seen a lot of powered bayliners that looked like they came straight out of an Adult book store...

Yeah, I've got a damn near terminal case of it. Every time I see or hear about a glass boat being cut up I think back to the first hull I bought - it was painfully expensive, just for the hull moulding to start building with. Now people are chainsawing mouldings that are just as good.



I should probably own a boat junkyard where I could become the sailboat equivalent of a crazy cat lady.

Pete,

Here's a thought: why not give it to your son? He's have his very own project boat, on which you can assist him for a change. It would give him the chance to work at his own pace, within his own budget, and ultimately have something of value to call his very own.

On the other hand, if he's in his mid teens then disregard the above -- chances are good that it'll become an ignored ornament in your yard/driveway...

Re: Anybody know what this is?

I agree....it looks like the Merrimac. Kinda like the Monitor too, sans turret.

Anybody else notice the antenna mounted at the rear quarter? Must've never occurred to the guy that maybe the antenna might be a little more effective at the top of the mast. Wouldn't need to be eight feet long!
