Not really commercial, but I ran across this cleaning up some pictures.

Apparently it belongs to a Australian network guy, hence the comms, and he refit it to provide all the amenities of a super yacht.

She passes by once every couple of years and anchors for a few days to some weeks.

Probably my favorite pleasure boat in terms of aesthetics.

Since this is my first post on /n/, I apologize for anything obvious I oversaw.
I am thinking of replacing the shitty rent residence I live in with a yacht.
Israel is my country of residence.
-Financially, it is cheaper to pay for, and maintain a yacht then to pay for rent, and significantly cheaper then to buy real estate here.
Everything is somewhat close to the sea, and I have my own car.
I also have money for sailing license.

But I don't know anything about actually living in a boat.
I was hoping some of you could help me out. Drop some links maybe.

Thanks.

The pirogue (power boat in center) forms the vast majority of our commercial fishing craft.

These guys take the sputtering and misfiring one engined boats over 40 miles offshore to catch yellow fin tuna, dolphin and king fish.

They may be small, but thanks to the sizeable bow, that the pilot can't see passed, they can easily travel in unfavorable conditions often found in these waters

Nah, wasn't me. The barge I move is a cookie-cutter design from Bollinger Shipyards, their 60,000 barrel design. We call em the "Bollinger Bricks", because they tow just like a big heavy brick.

What risk? A dollar for the post card (free if you can get an interest card from a union member) plus 34 cents for the stamp? Not much risk in losing less than two dollars, bro.

>>1046825
Yeah in 2004 that said only 3000 were gonna get in. And they ended up taking in like 16,000 over ten years. I reckon the same thing will happen this time.

Whats the workflow for you guys right now? Normally here on the west coast, shipping gets dead as fuck this time of year cause of chinese new year, but we're still super busy. LA just logged the most productive January ever.

While I have nothing against my weed smoking brethren I have an issue with public smoking seeing as the guys on the beach smoke next to my wall and if you hang out in my living room long enough you can actually get high from second hand blazing.

And I live in a windy area where the wind direction is from my house to the beach.

>>1045179

I'm telling you, I built a boat that's pretty much exactly like that, I've even got a 30hp 1984 Yamaha that I bought off of a guy for 300$ and rebuilt myself, misfiring and all. I still find it amazing that the high bow design isn't more popular, for the areas I fish in, (lower Chesapeake bay), I have yet to have water come over the bow even when I got caught out in a storm with near gale force winds and 8ft waves, If I had been in a similar sized john boat I would have been screwed.

The bow can be an issue with a tiller, but you learn to live with it, I eventually found a tiller extension is just about the best thing you can do, and besides there's nothing quite like standing up only holding the tiller extension and a rope to the bow while blasting through chop at night, it really makes you appreciate life jackets, but I've never felt more alive.

We just use a section of 3" PVC pipe.

The design is called a Pirogue, but a west Indian variant. The fancy ones are Bowen from Trinidad. On a regular day in the channel you are likely to come across 8' swells on the regular. Though people still cross the 9 miles channel in 12' ribs with 15hp engines.

Yeah, I noticed when I was alongside the ship, they still had weld outlines of the COSCO lettering. I don't know if it changed hands again, or if the Chinese just wanted a black hull to blend in with other Atlantic trade.

any reason why you guys don't run the line through the bullnose?
>>
>>1051781
It's a balance of factors. When I am riding along a ship, and the pilots asks for a back, I want the direction of the pull to be as straight back as possible.

Since that ship is so high, putting it in the bullnose would put the weight of the pull on the top inside of the nose, creating a pull that is down-and-then-back.

I could alleviate that by letting out more ship line through the nose, but I've got a 55 year old deckhand. I don't want to make him haul in 150' of nine inch line by hand.

Also, running the line straight back to the port side of the H-bit tends to keep the bow of the tug pinched in while getting dragged along (imagine someone pulling a line tied around your left armpit). I do that when I'm feeling lazy and don't want to fuck with the rudder for the ride.

There are all sorts of ways to manipulate the makeup on the H bitts and buttons to counteract wind and current when working a ship. Those tractor tugs have it easy.
>>
>>1051871
That said, I do run it through the bullnose when necessary, usually when pulling a ship off the dock when the bitt is at or near the level of my bow. That's just to keep the line from rubbing on my rails and getting damaged. The downside is that my leverage point is now at the very bow of the tug.
Usually I need to make the line up to the side of the H-bitt due to current. It's not a lot, but those extra bits of pound-feet make a difference when trying to stay up in a 1-2kt current
