Naked Shearwater

Just saw this Shearwater being collected by Henshaw's for tubing. It makes you realise how little there is to a rib with no tubes. Should look nice when it's done though.

Is it being built for anyone on here I wonder????

Very little indeed. The invention of the inflatable collar came just in time for some boatbuilders...

Maybe thats why the Yanks use those daft bass boats-they haven't figured out tubes yet.

It is indeed their new "cutter" model - at least that's what the guy delivering it said.

The whole bass boat thing is sort of like NASCAR on steroids:

In tournaments, bass fishing competitors need to beat out their competitors in getting to and from the best fishing spots, hence the overpowered muscle boats. Since bass fishing is all on lakes or slow moving rivers, the boats are a relatively flat vee, with very little wetted area at speed.

Non-competitive bass fishermen, of course, have decided that they need the same equipment as the competitors, hence the popularity of bass boats in the US.

I recall talking with my cousin about his pending acquisition of a bass boat:

Me: Why do you need 200 hp?

Him: I have to be able to get to fishing spots fast.

Me: Why?

Him: Well, ... Uh, ... The fish might leave.
