Green Eye - the latest semi-displacement potting boatPress Release from Bluewater Boats (Plymouth) Ltd. PACKING the punch of a super-crabber into a semi-displacement hull of just 38ft in length, is a tall order, yet the latest build from Bluewater Boats (Plymouth) Ltd may achieve that goal. Driven by a Volvo Penta D9 engine, the Green Eye has already gained interest from other UK skippers looking toward a semi displacement potter.
Bluewater Boats has a strong order book, presently building a Buccaneer B33 scalloper for a Shetland skipper, several Cygnus Marine GM19s, one for Carrickfergus Council in Northern Ireland as a workboat. BILL THOMAS grew up paddling the rivers and coast of North and South Carolina, playing in the mountains and trying find meaningful work while avoiding a real job. JOHN KARBOTT spent most of his childhood along the beaches and waterfront of Plymouth, Massachusetts, watching commercial lobsterboats and occasionally catching a ride on one.
There are many individuals out there who have decided that they would like to build their very own boat but don’t know how to get started. Bill has chosen a Karl Stambaugh design, the Bay Skiff 12 as the boat students will construct during his course.
As both skiffs take shape through each week, Bill and John will lead discussions in small-craft design, selecting a suitable design for the amateur builder, setting up a one-man shop, proper hand and power tool usage, and much more. Plans to create a world leading boat building facility at the company’s South Yard site were approved by Plymouth City Council last year, following which the company sought a Government contribution to help secure approval for this major investment from its French parent company. Princess Yachts exports 90 per cent of its production and has built a global reputation for quality and craftsmanship. Last month Princess Yachts completed the purchase from Defence Estates of a freehold interest in the 18-acre South Yard site within the historic Devonport Naval Base.
Princess entered the superyacht market this year with the launch to wide acclaim of the Princess 32M long range cruising yacht at the London Boat Show in January 2011.

Based on a Typhoon 38 hull, the robust Green Eye (BD 88) built for Ilfracombe skipper Nick Fox, is now in operation. Smooth passage and a sharp response to steering are traits of the Green Eye, explained Gary Wiltshire.
Interfaced units include a Seiwa Marlin multi-function chart plotter, an Olex 3D seafloor-mapping chart-plotter (displayed on a TFT screen). He has been a self-employed woodworker, cabinetmaker, furniture builder and boatbuilder for nearly 35 years. Many first-time builders have run into problems understanding the process of what to do first and, as a result, soon get intimidated and the idea loses momentum.
Whether you have a hankering for traditional skiff construction like the Bay Skiff 12 or the 12 ?′ Semi-dory skiff or are simply looking for a perfect introduction to wooden boat construction, you will thoroughly enjoy any of these weeks. It is already Plymouth’s second largest private sector employer, with just under 2,000 employees, and supports several hundred supply chain jobs. The company is already working on the new flagship Princess 40M, a 130-foot tri-deck yacht to be launched in 2012 and with a strong forward order book the company is confident of further growth in this market.
The council said that while the funding would have made its ambitions "easier to realise", it remain committed to both schemes.
Although the boat remains quite a bit heavier than a standard Typhoon 38, you only have to see the poor weather that the north Devon fishermen face to know why he (skipper Nick Fox) chose the build. Being an avid sea kayaker and boater, Bill also designs sea kayaks, canoes, and other small boats. Bill Thomas and John Karbott, noted boatbuilders and teachers, invite anyone interested in wooden boats and woodworking to join them in either of these two six-day courses focusing on the skills and techniques used in basic boatbuilding. I learned so much in just one week and gained the confidence needed to start my first boat at home. Harsh weather conditions routinely faced by north Devon fishermen meant heavier construction to the Green Eye.


Bill teaches woodworking and boatbuilding in his own shop, at the WoodenBoat School and in other venues across the United States.
While in school, he lobstered and raked sea moss during the summer season and worked odd jobs throughout the winter.
However, having a greater displacement weight than a traditional Typhoon 38, has not reduced the boat's performance, where a top speed of 19 knots with a comfortable cruising speed of 12 knots was achieved. During the build at Bluewater Boats, Skipper Fox retained his previous craft, a displacement Cygnus Marine GM38. Other gear includes a dual frequency Koden sounder (CVS1410), a Furuno radar (1835), steering comes via an Autopilot NT777 - with a secondary jogging switch on the outer working console. He graduated from Boston’s Wentworth Institute with an Associate Degree in Architectural Engineering, but boats and the water were his first loves.
If you want to build a good-looking, simple sailing skiff, Bill or John can help you get started and guide you through the step-by-step procedures to taking on and completing such a project on your own. Two Icom VHF sets - IC-M423 and IC-M323 - complete the radio equipment; in addition to a standard Ritchie manual compass the package includes a Kelvin Hughes azimuth digital compass. The variety of work Bill does: building, designing and teaching both in the shop and on the water, when coupled with his passion for the outdoors, helps to keep his skills rooted in real world experiences.
After owning and maintaining wooden boats all his life, he decided to pursue that career full time and sold his successful lobstering business. Crewmen and Skipper Fox have added-comforts from a full galley and hot water supply in the forepeak (three bunks), and a diesel powered heater located under the skipper's KAB 301 seat to drive windscreen demister vents. Based around a Spencer Carter one-ton slave hauler (with davit arm) is a high-tech deck layout.
