Very interesting photos, Jon. A reminder that we must all respect the sea at all times; she has awesome power. :speechles

Thanks for posting them.
 
Yeah, I read the explanation given by the ex owner, not sure tho'
 
Surprisingly lightly built.
 
did it have a water-tight bulkhead or something? Just it doesnt look like it should be floating!
 
I was a few hundred yards behind it, the seas were 4-6's typical of the New Jersey Shore but every once in a while a really big one came in and I think it got them by surprise. I know a few caught me by surprise
 
There are stringers lengtwise and that is normal, but it has also stringers frome chine to chine (the opposite) way. I have learnt that it is not so clever to put stringers this way. It can tend to break at these point as a karate guy dividing a brick stone in two pieces. But the finnish boat builder and world champion racer Mice Frodé had that so what is really the best?:seaman:
 
Dude what a boat.Sutphens are a strong lot ya know, but man imagine what that felt like the next morning.
