Yes and Yes. The boat also runs very well it is a little different in that it has twins. Sam is buisy building me a 48ft boat with a similar hull and twins in cockpit motor boxes as on Storm Petrel. My boat does not have a true DE LB cabin and profile and is more of a modern Lake Union Dream Boat with a raised fore deck, but functionaly a twin DE type. There are some pictures of that build on a previous thread.
Do you have any pics of a Lake Union "Dream Boat" ?
I went to Seattle over Columbus Day weekend to attend a wedding.
Sparkling clear blue skies for 6 days...unusual I understand for weather out there.
Seems a beautiful area to boat except for the rain.
Lake Union, Lake Washington, the locks to Puegot Sound and then to the ocean. (I think the ocean was quite a distance...correct?)
I kept a keen eye out for DEs or DE like out there....I saw none.
