Foam a

Foam b

On a recent walk-about Ross Dawson spied the above double ender moored amongst the grunty big fishing boats in Greymouth’s boat harbour.  Ross commented that it would be ‘interesting’ to watch her battling the rollers as she crosses the notorious Grey River bar!

You have to love the workmanlike rain cover on the exhaust!

Any of the WorkBoat woodys able to shed some more light on Foam’s provenance?

  2. Nathan is right of course I have been on a couple of these over the years, one with an open flying bridge and one without as designed, big Chevs originally one I recall had a V drive and North of 40 knots could be achieved and a remarkably good sea boat at that .


  3. Its an as-designed and quite popular/well fitted out Spencer ~26. Usually with a big v8 diesel on leg.


  4. Ref to the OMG, must be a home made job, no professional Boat builder would do any thing kile that, just try to run the stability calculations would probably limit you to a glassy calm sea sate, LOL
