Here she is, a collection of leaks loosely assembled into the shape of a boat:
Annabel Lee – 1977 Cheoy Lee 32′ Trawler
Built in Hong Kong by Cheoy Lee Shipyards, she cruises contently at a sedate 7 knots through hell or high water, burning a mere one gallon an hour, and her 80hp Lehman diesel can run just fine on biodiesel. She draws 4.5′, (the specs state 3.5, but my ruler reads otherwise,) weighs in just under 20,000 lbs., holds 360 gallons of fuel, 200 of water, and carries full electronics. Aboard, there are V bunks forward, a head with shower, full galley with 4 burner propane stove/oven, fridge, pressurized hot & cold running water and LOTS of teak.
Our crew, underway…
And awaiting shore leave.
