OK it is official the first Flowers Boatworks 36 designed by Spencer Lincoln is out of the mold. It took a little while to get the mold done but Ken and his crew have been working very hard all winter and got it done. Here are a few shots of the boat as it rolled out of the shed moving into the shop. I will have more pictures in the next few weeks when I go up to see my C9 in the boat.

tunaorlater,
If I remember right I believe Ken told me it will swing a 32' wheel. We are planning on 28" x ??? right now.
Thanks. Good luck fishing as I am sitting this season out, my 28 sold the other day.

Hey CM thanks. The first few pictures are digital pictures the ones they sent me. The day I was there it was late once it came out of the mold and they decided it would be best to move it out of the shed the next day, so I didn't get any good shots with my digital.
I would really like to take you up on your offer, as I would love to see that green stick in action.
Thanks again.

Is that a clipper bow?

Your top photo of the port side. It appears that your boat has a clipper bow. I really like it. Very Salty and unique!

Clippers make excellent diplacement speed.

The wave of the future.

Power it with Bio-Diesil-Electric motors

Now thats Inovative

Add one of these to finish it off Bristol!

Rhumbline,
I am not sure that it qualifies as a clipper bow but the entry is 47 degrees just like any deep V hull.
If I could find one of those bow ornaments with a big enough set of jewels I would certainly consider it.

Shaft seals

Guys I was looking for some feedback on your thoughts about using a shaft seal like PSS or Duramax over a regular stuffing box with drip less shaft packing. I know the pros and cons of both but wanted to hear your thoughts and maybe good and bad experiences. Anyone?

Well I made the trip to Maine yesterday and here are a few pictures of our boat waiting to go inside the shop. Seems things are a little slow on finishing another boat that is holding me up on going inside.
So for now I have to wait.
