Beautiful wooden boat
Thought some of you might appreciate this boat docked outside the hotel I'm in in oslo. Also there is a boat with a 400 hp outboard. Can't recall ever seeing one before.

re: Beautiful wooden boat
not a bad looking runabout.

Here's one that was at the wooden boat fest in Madisonville a few years ago.

Sad but true. I was living on 3rd street by the Wiggly when they were re-building it. I thought they were building a damn parking garage.

ETA: I still want to take the wooden boat building class at the Maritime Museum.

The Blind Tiger just opened a restaurant on a floating barge in the marina south of the bridge and Nunmaker's Yachts. It's quite a monstrosity as well. We'll see if it lasts.

Marina del Rey? Dan Claitor's family owns that marina. I can remember the day when not a sole was on that river, even during peak summer months. That all changed in the late-70's. There used to be a restaurant, called Chef Rene's Riverboat Tchefuncte, on a barge on the east side of the river.

I've always thought that they built boats out of wood back in the day, not because they had to, but rather because it was the best material for the job.

I think it's kind of like golf clubs. Wooden ones are almost just as good as modern clubs, but it's lot more difficult to mass reproduce something made of wood.

Man i love wooden boats. I like the look when the teak is mixed with brass or stainless fittings also. Nice pic of a nice vessel sir.

re: Beautiful wooden boat
yes those boats are beautiful but they also require polishing and buffing after each and every use or they get covered in water spots and look like shit

its like a show car you drive once a month and polish every other day

i hear the ride smooth as glass as well, one of the smoothest riding most stable boats ever made
