Also, include controls for electric bow and stern thrusters for tricky docking maneuvers!

This one is getting closer to the goal!  :icon_sunny:


It's on a Hanseat IV though, which is like 80' at the waterline.  You need a really BIG boat to devote that much space to a Nav Station.  I could shrink it to about 50% of that size though and still retain most of the amenities.

Here's a couple more shots from the Hanseat Main Salon

 

That looks reasonably comfortable place to ride out collapse.  :icon_sunny:

We're going to need a Bigger Boat!


Gotta start lining up Investors.  ::)

With GPS chart plotters at the helm these days, nav stations aren't as important as they once were, and on a boat you have to decide if the space might be better dedicated to something like storage.

What makes the desert beautiful is that somewhere it hides a well.

Bah!

First off, I am sacrificing my own Cabin so I can have the ultimate Nav station.  I LIVE at my desk on a swivel chair already!  It's my network communications station too as long as the net is up and running!  You can have the Master Suite!

For when the net is NOT running, I will need space for the paper charts to do plotting manually!  Advance planning!  I want 270 degrees of desk space on my swivel chair, which should be located to the right of the Tiller where the Captain is driving (when not on Autopilot)

I also want room for a 12V powered Beer Fridge so I don't have to get up from my seat to get a beer.

This is a decent start on a pretty small boat.Fits EZ on 35'



With my Nav station and Berth, this is all I need.  OK, a toilet too.  200 square feet of living space.

Okay, this is perfect. Your berth, nav station, and toilet, all in one.

Another beautiful junk, with twin diesels. I can't believe how cheap boats are getting.



Not as sweet as the one in Rio Dulce, but half the price, and still a 57 foot floating castle. Wood boats do okay in the Northwest, as evidenced by the large numbers of vintage survivors, but require more care than steel or plastic. This ad says the boat is in a marina in "North San Francisco". Wonder if it's the marina by the Safeway where Micheal met Mary Ann.

Definitely not that marina. Sure looks more like Oakland to me.

Custom 57' concrete cutter ketch, 1982, Nuevo Vallarta, Nayarit , Mexico

I suspect this boat is now history, but if it rode out Patricia last night, you could probably pick it up REALLY cheap.  :icon_sunny:

Crap that's a lot of boat for $18K.

How many do you think to sail it?  3 minimum?

Ferrocement is great.  Lasts forever if you don't run aground.

With all that canvas "sun protection" showing in the pics, I'd guess it has some serious topside leaks. And we know the canvas covers are long gone, as of last night, no matter whether the boat got sunk or not.

But yeah, I thought it had potential when I saw it a week or two back, before the Bombification of Mexico. Three people to sail her comfortably without working hard at it, I'd say. Four would be better.

Eh, too soon anyhow.  No serious looking until the spring and I win my case.

You're probably right about the topside leaks.  i never saw anybody drape that much canvas over a boat, especially one that big.
