Ain't that a bucket of seawater in the face. Given that to be so, I'm wanting to re-fasten a previously iron fastened 36' trawler, perhaps avoiding the same fate. I'm looking for 2500 #14-#18x2.5" HD...

Re: Beaver Glass Boats info wanted...specifically, 26' aft-cabin model.

Beaver Glass Boats never left any kind of a paper trail so to speak. Even my heavy full displacement wood trawler is a roller. I'm more interested in finding hands-on info from an owner of a NS 26'...

Tru-blue, such language! ..I find it hard to believe you're drinking a (fine) cabernet. No offense, It brought back memories from the 60s..like 'rat-fink'!

Philosophical questions only you 'the user' can answer. A simple analogy; Downhill skiing is exhilarating but X-country is work. Both are correct for different reasons..Same with boating, what's...

I 2nd faster, "it's the journey, not the destination". And what's with these 'fast' trawlers. Isn't that going against the trawler 'philosophy'? Consumers are such a demanding lot. But, it's never...

power to sail, sail to power, why not both?

True-blue..I haven't heard 'cripes' since the 60's!
My wife thinks power to sail is common, because sailing is pure! She's so sweet! I'll have to straighten her out.

Like a prior post said, wind isn't free. You just amortize your upfront costs. 'Deep pocket' boaters are insulated from many of the points being raised, sail or power. For many, cost issues are...

What's in a name? Absolutely nothing! But, Northsea does 'sound' capable. I suppose European could imply economy and capability. If it is considered to be a well built seaworthy design, I'm...

Got to love that 'true blue' nauticat pilothouse. No where to go, nothing to do?..You can always just sit around and admire the interior. A real 'pilothouse' fan.

Re: 1974 Northsea 26 Pilothse w/aft cabin info (Beaver Glass Works)

Thanks 'faster'. Even Richmond city archives has no info. Beaver Glass Works appears to have evaporated w/o a trace. I'm also interested in the origin of the hull design. Was it a universal long keel...
