    Ok stupid thread, but have to ask. I just watched the movie 50 first dates, great movie. Anyone who has seen the movie familiar with the designer of the ship "Sea Serpent"? It looks familiar but I can't remember where I've seen that before--kinda looks like a Bruce Roberts ketch, but has a nice captain's windowed stern.

    Thanks for answering

    Thanks for the info Nathan, it does look very similar to the vagabond, although all the ones Ive seen are fiberglass, I thought the one in the movie was wood, or at least it appeared to be wood in need of a paint job in the beginning of the movie.

    I got my boat from a guy last name of Pay. The boats name on the stern was "Pay Back". I changed it to E C Rider, after my two boys Everett and Casey.

    Okay then, what is the boat that appears in the episode of "Worst Witch" that Mildred hides her cat in during the holiday at the wizard's place - It is a small ply vertical stem cat with a raised deck forward and very cute?

    I'm pretty sure the boat was a Hudson Force 50. It's a fiberglass boat w/ a "lapstrake" hull so it kinda looks like wood.
