Default 33 Crowley Beal "Sun Dog" lobster boat

There was some "interest" in this 33 Crowley Beal last week.

Trying to fight the "boredom of winter" I took a ride to Portland on Monday and hopped the ferry out to Long Island ME where the boat is located.
I was picked up @ the ferry pier by Steve Johnson (owner of Johnson Boat Yard) who built this 33 footer for the owner.

Steve told me he's built many 33 and 36 Crowley Beal DEs including the 36 foot "ambulance boat" ! I didn't get a chance to see this 36 but he says it has "all the latest" in emergency medical care equipment.

OK, back to the Sun Dog. It's a ruggedly built no frills lobster boat with a John Deere 6081 AFM 375. Boat/engine is 2005/2006. The boat has a 200-225 gal. single fiberglass fuel tank and full hydraulics.

Here's a series of pics in no particular order.

btw, interesting boat yard. Lots of 28,33 and 36 Crowley Beals, a 35 Duffy and many other DE hull/builds.

FWIW, Bill D
