35-36' 70-something Carver
|Second Chance - 35-36 foot, seventy something Caviar, no it's a Carver, possibly a Montery or Montego model, could be a Mercury, Mercedes or Mack. We're pretty sure it starts with an M. We are asking top dollar even though it's only been dropped once, that we know of, eh Steve? Spent a bundle on this baby too, over 20 big ones. I was so busy working overtime to pay Ayling's bill, I've only taken it out for 30 hours running time since the two year professional restoration, 2009-2010. Rebuilt twin, huge bore big block fuel sipping engines, new canvas, special hard to find Rideau Canal memorial mosquito grade marine netting (only 5 grand at Ayling's eh?), runs good, floats, new slip covers. Only asking 15 1/2 thou. Great investment, still plenty of room to put money, or just add gas and go. Great stereo.|
1971 Trojan Tri-Cabin
|Perfect boat for the Rideau system. The Trojan tri-cabin has one of the best layouts around, with a large aft cabin featuring two double bunks and direct access to the aft cockpit. The V-berth has its own door to the forward head and sink, and the main cabin has easy access to the fly-bridge. This 1971 Trojan has all the good looks of a classic wood boat with the practicality of a fiberglass hull.|
42' Custom Steel Sedan Trawler
|First, a little bit about her and then some specifications. AM II is a custom built steel sedan trawler. She was first launched in June of 2002. Her lines were drawn by Phil Freedman and her superstructure and interior by the builder Paul MacLennan. Her hull design and construction takes a lot from the commercial fishing boats used on the Great Lakes. Her below water lines are that of a full displacement work boat with the aft section of the chine rising to above the water line at the transom to produce a very easily propelled boat that leaves almost no wake at hull speed. The hull extends under the integral swim platform increasing the hull length and aft bouncy without increasing the overall length of the boat. The nearly full length keel assures direction stability an easy motion in heavy seas and a fully protected propeller and rudder. Also the full length keel allows the boat to be set on the hard with only a few timbers under the keel and some stands to balance her for off season storage. With a 1 /2 inch thick keel base , 1 /4 inch keel sides and 3/16 inch hull plating even a serious hard grounding will only produce some scratches in the below water line paint. With 1/4 x 4" frames on 28" centers overlaid with 1/4 x 1" stringers on 8' centers plated by 3/16 hot rolled steel the hull and superstructure are, to say the least, well built. Note that no filler was used to fare the plating but the plating is fare. Note also that because she is an all metal boat she is totally lightning proof to occupants.|
|For ease of handling and maneuvering she enjoys the benefit of commercial grade engine driven hydraulic bow and stern thrusters and anchor winch. The steering system is commercial grade hydraulic by Wagener at both the upper and lower helms. The upper deck hand rails are heavy duty so as to also serve as booms to launch and retrieve the dingy stored on the boat deck. The dingy can be launched to port or starboard using a push button controlled electric winch.|
The engine room contains a Perkins 6 - 345 main engine that produces 115
ship HP @ 2600 RPM. (double the power required to push AM II to her hull
speed of 9 mph ) Electric power when away from shore is provided by two main
engine mounted alternators and a single cylinder Volvo engine powered 160
amp alternator. These supply power to charge a bank of 6-6 volt deep cycle
batteries that stores 675 amps hours @ 12volts. This battery bank powers a
2500 watt Heart inverter which also has a 140 amp battery charger. A
separate 1000 CCA starting battery is also part of the power supply. The
little Volvo is equipped with aqua lift muffler and a water separator that
eliminates the shush - shush of the exhaust.
Fuel for the engines comes from two 650L fuel tanks mounted either side of the engine room (which acts to passively control boat motion at rest or under way ). Fuel from the tanks can be pumped through a Racor filtered polishing system from tank to tank for lateral trim of the boat and to assure clean fuel for the engines. Domestic hot water is supplied from an electric powered water heater which is also equipped with a heat exchanger which uses engine coolant as the heat source. This source can also heat the boat via heaters installed in the living quarters.
The engine room is also home to a 35 amp 120 to 120 volt isolation
transformer. This ensures that no stray current from shore power electric
power can cause electrolytic hull corrosion and that no one swimming near
the boat will be electrocuted.
A residential water pressure system is also installed in the engine room to supply water to the fore deck and aft cockpit wash down and a fire sprinkler system in the engine room. The engine room is completely lined with 1 1/4 inch of Sound Down insulation with 1/4 inch peg board overlay to reduce engine noise and heat transmition and the entire boat is fully insulated with polyurethane foam.
Entry to the engine room for daily fluid and equipment inspection is provided by a man hatch opening into engine room. For serious engine room entry, two very large hatches are located in the main salon deck that will provide total stand up access to engine room equipment. A similar large double hatch is located in the aft section of the main salon deck which allows access to a large stowage hold, the stern thruster and the steering cylinder. The bow thruster, hydraulic system valves and oil tank are located under the fore cabin berth.
AM II has a flat fore deck, wide side decks and a transom door walk through
to the swim platform. This makes handling lines for docking, anchoring, or
passing through waterway locks a straight forward process. Add good
visibility from the lower helm and two people can work the boat with little
drama. Side doors, port and starboard and a sliding door entry to the main
salon from the cockpit allow simple access, either from low floating docks
or high stationary piers. A five foot long ladder hinged to the boat deck
access ladder at the swim platform allows for easy re-boarding either from a
swim or a man overboard emergency. Getting in or out of the dingy is simple
as the swim platform and inflatable dingy tubes sit about the same height
above the water. Just sit down and slide in or out. In the cockpit there are
six foot + settees on either side. Under these seats space is provided for
the vented propane locker on the port side and maintenance equipment under
the starboard. Life saving equipment is secured on the inside of the transom
door ready for use at all times but out of sight when the door is open. A
cockpit shower is located in the starboard side seat front for rinsing off
while standing on the swim platform.
Entering the main salon, it is difficult not to notice that all interior cabinets, doors and partitions are crafted in solid wild cherry wood. Most of the cabinet doors employ very unique basket weave panels made of the same wood. As you pass through the sliding door, you will find hanging lockers port and starboard. Cockpit and main cabin light switches are located here. The cabin light switch is part of a four way system which also allows the lights to be turned on or off at the side door or at the forward cabin entry. Settees are located port and starboard in the salon. Storage is available under these and full length lockers are located overhead. An entertainment unit counter is located on top of the port side hanging locker.
Engine room and storage hold access is provided by large hatches in the salon floor. A roll up carpet covers the hatches. A high bar separates the salon from the galley. Galley activities can take place seperate from the salon and the chef can work food magic, serve drinks on the bar and still be part of any salon conversation. A toaster oven, wine glass rack and a dish locker are located under the bar aft of the sink counter. A seven cubic foot Nova Cool combination refrigerator / freezer are located under the sink counter. A Princess propane stove with three burners and an oven is located at the starboard end of the counter and a microwave oven is housed in the overhead cupboard above the stove. The starboard side door is located just forward of the galley with the lower helm just forward of the door. A swing away swivel seat is provided for the helmsman. You have great visibility all round from here and on nice days you can slide open the door enjoy the weather.
Located amidships between the helm and the stairs to the forward cabins is a U shaped dinette that will seat six friendly folks or four with more elbow room. The dinette is raised to provide head room in the mid berth located below. Being raised you have a great view forward, aft and side to side.
On the port side of the galley and dinette area is the port side door and the inside stairway to the upper deck. The 12 and 120 volt electrical panel is located under the stairs with a large pantry drawer located under the panel. Generator / alternator controls, water and waste tank gauges along with a Link 2000 battery monitor are also housed in this location.
Down the three steps forward of the port side door there is a by fold panel which when open allows light and air into the mid cabin. At the base of the stairs is the entry to the mid cabin to the right and the fore cabin ahead.
The mid cabin bed is queen size. There is full headroom beside the bed but only sitting headroom over the bed. A fold down computer desk is located on the starboard side of the cabin. Entry to the head is also to starboard. The water supply pump and valves are located under hatches in the floor. A four cubic foot freezer is currently located in this cabin but is not permanently installed and could be removed if it is not needed.
The forward cabin is also home to a queen bed with memory foam mattress. This is an island bed with large drawers under. Hanging lockers and drawer cabinets are located on either side at the foot of the bed with shelves running the remaining length of the hull sides. Access to the anchor chain locker is located at the bed head behind a basket weave door. A total of six opening ports and a deck hatch provide plenty of light and ventilation. All openings are screened.
There are two entry doors into the head, one from the forward cabin and one from the mid. An opening port provides ventilation and a translucent ceiling located just aft of the windshield provides solarium style lighting. A reliable hand pump w.c. which uses very little water is located beside a vanity cabinet containing a custom made pottery lavatory. A mirrored meds cabinet is located above the basin and good stowage is available in the vanity cabinet. A home sized shower stall with door completes the head layout. It should be noted that all gray water from the bathroom and the kitchen is discharged into a holding tank which allows the gray water to be held from discharge while at anchor and pumped overboard in open water. The inside stairs to the upper deck leads to a large open space where deck chairs and a table can be set up. Leather swivel chairs provide seating at the upper helm. This station is fully instrumented and like the lower helm is equipped with a VHS radio and a North Star GPS / depth sounder. A ten foot Grand RIB dingy is located at the aft end of the upper deck. The dingy is powered by a 20 hp electric start Honda outboard and has a fully instrumented consol, including a smaller North Star GPS. When the dingy is in the water, you can have a BBQ and entertain a dozen or more on the boat deck. A fifteen foot bimini top provides shelter from the sun and it and the radar arch can be lowered to reduce air draft by about four feet.
