The RP has been sold and the new owner is working on it.
Love the whisper grey. My next boat's color for sure.
Great job and thanks for the pictures.
i used to see that girl at seaway marina in rockaway when i kept my boat there,nice job looks great
Installed windows and port lights this weekend . Reused front windows , sides were hand me downs from Madchark. Port lights are Lewmar.
Moved Harris outside to rearrange shed. Rub rail on .
As Coastal 27 owner, I am very impressed with the pics of this boat.
Just wondering, what is the lineage of the Harris 28 vs. the Royal Lowell Coastal/ Nauset / Tripp 27 ?
They both look to have soft chines with a sweet sheer. Any info you can share would be appreciated .
Thanks, and congrats again on a grabbing such a nice looking boat !
Looks great! Very jealous! Lol
The original Harris Cuttyhunk 28 is a Royal Lowell design, Harris went out of business in January 1987, Nauset Marine subsequently purchased the molds and built a revised house mold. the last Nauset 28 was built in 2009. Nauset Marine built a total of 51, 28' hulls. The molds were sold and are now in my possession.
Nice job! That gal should draw the fish in just to get a closer look!
Skye- There is no lineage between the 28 Harris and the 27 Nauset/Coastal/Tripp other than the man who designed them. They are completely different animals.
Sea trial last night turned up 3100 rpms 3/4 fuel 28 mph 2’ seas against tide. So far so good.
Boat looks good...those chairs look comfortable...I hope they are marine grade
Chairs are Springfield marine
Very nice! I'm looking forward to checking it out up close some day. Are you going to be selling the other boat? Personally, I would keep it!
Looks like you need a wedge on the radar.
Boat looks awesome!
I won’t sell it right away
Looks great, congratulations on getting it wet!
WOW, Great looking boat young man. I don't know where i have been not to see this till now. Good looking work from where you started. I Really like it !!!. Not to criticize but Elmar is right, You either have to turn that radar mast around or cut the top off and make it 4 or 5 degrees down fwd. (Unless you never run in the fog) . What are you going to do with all that room ??
Hi tuckerman wondering if you could share gear ratio and what you ended up with for a prop. I’m rebuilding the same boat now and dropping my shaft tube to swing a wheel big enough to get that speed
Really looks great. I remember when you first started. Amazing.
Why don't I know about this boat????????
