Thought i would put in an up date on our sea trials. We took the boat out for a weekend run this last weekend. We left Everett and went to Anacortes friday morning then made a full sweep of the San Juans. Total miles was 210 miles... after our return home.  Posting a few more pics. Everything about this boat has been great, even found some 3ft chop and very happy with the ride!!

Mark,

I have a friend that lives near you on 30th St. and have seen your boat from the street driving by.  I wanted to stop when we got back from shrimping but your boat was gone, I assume more sea trials.  I would love to stop and take a look up close.  Not sure when I will get back up there but I will send a pm in advance if that is acceptable.

They think it's fiberglass because your boat looks very professionally done and 99% of the fiberglass boats on the planet are white :)

Looks huge sitting in the water like that ... awesome!

My less than photographic memory reminds me that Brian says a rockport has yet to be built.  Does any have a picture of a finished Prince Rupert?   Seems like the Newport is the most popular design.  If you have pics a PR please post here.

It seems that the Newport style pilot house is most common, but the down-sloping cuddy that the Newport uses has only been built on Kent Cannon's boat that I know of.  The Prince Rupert actually has a cuddy that slopes upward (somewhat along the lines of the sheer) and nobody's built that yet even though it has the most room inside .... and though several have said they were building a Prince Rupert, I haven't seen a finished one yet.  No Rockports yet.  Most builders utilize something that can best be described as the "Newport Pilot House Plus Rockport Cuddy".  Adrian P in Gresham, Oregon, designed his own walk-through cuddy that turned out really nice.  LOL.... That's the nice thing about building your own boat.  You get to make it exactly the way YOU want it.
