If it weren't for all that junk hanging off the back; wouldn't be a bad looking boat ! ;)
Getrid of the fly bridge and the "roof"over the stern and havva good sail :D
AFA "RV vs marine"? Mostly the tag affixed to the back and the $$ Sure; there's some stuff that's not suitable for boats; but really..how much diff? Enuff to warrant the (usually extreme)price increase?

The "junk" that you refer to would be davits, dinghy, and solar panel? Yeah, totally unnecessary for a long-term cruiser. :rolleyes:

There is no fly bridge - that's another boat behind this one. And the "roof" that you refer to is more solar panels. Probably necessary to be able to run the AC off solar power like he claims.

I like the unsecured propane tank right next to the mushroom vent.

TakeFive;
Yeah, you're right. the fly *is* not included :D Given the rest of the accoutrements,it's a wonder it doesn't have a fly, tho. ;)
It's listed as a "trawler/pilothouse, so I suppose it's OK to have a solar farm erected on scaffolding? ;) I wasn'necessarily questioning the equipment to the stern; just the design. I guess there is no other way to sport alla that silicon? :)
Barring that, I still like her (unadorned) looks. . I do wonder just. how much assist ya can get from the sail plan?

Ah yes, nothing like a home AC unit to let you know the boat is water tight. I think those home AC units will be in the salon if the boat gets pooped.

Am I the only one who noticed the sails, running rigging, are gone? I didn't even see a deck winch.

As for the rv/marine parts I was directly referencing the ungimbled stove, and the propane fridge that vents to where?

I really like the "companion way" full height storm door.

If I were in the market for a trawler, I would offer $4000 for this mess, would be a nice loop boat, but worth almost nothing.
