Down on the Street - Nautical Edition

cool boats at night - sailor's delight

And now for something slightly different - but still parked down on the street. Walking the dog the other night I found this striking Davis Boats Rock Harbor 25 short cabin sitting on a three-axle trailer in front of a neighbor's house. Mmm... 6000 lbs of tasty fiberglass, stainless steel and Volvo/Penta Duo Prop I/O propulsion.

While boats are seen on the street in Carlsbad from time-to-time, they're far more of an infrequent site compared to Madison/Monona. Then again, Carlsbad has neither a port nor harbor. You have to drive up to the Oceanside harbor or down to San Diego to get your trailered boat in and out of the water.

Tuesday morning the boat was back, I was able to snag a few shots in the daylight.
the business end

Here's a pic from the Davis Boats website of another Rock Harbor 25 down on the water.
Do you think Santa will put one under the tree for me next month? I've been a (relatively) good boy this year...
