Since many of us are converting our Macs to trawlers , we need our own avatar . I notice the Tattoos are up there .

How about it ???

Yeah , Simple enough , just an X or M sans mast . Perhaps a Mac with a small light/antenna tower in place of the mast .
We love our Mac , but its doubtful we will ever again run it with the mast on . For us , it is a fuel efficient trawler .

Also ,,, a MacTrawler avatar would show the dual nature of our boats .

Where we at on an avatar for us Mac owners that are topless ?
A suggestion would be a short midship light mast , a dodger and bimini .
The dodger would be just to have something above the deck .

Looks a little like the African Queen. :D When we're cruising the Erie Canal with bimini, dodger, and bridge (mast at home), I often feel like I'm driving the African Queen, so it's all good. :wink:

Personally, I think rake the stubby mast back a little and lose the dodger and awning.

But I could live with this design.

Perhaps with permission form Duane and from a picture of his 'conversion'

I couldn't find one for Ventures on here so I made my own as you may see to the right here.

Hope I don't owe someone royalties.

I like his light tower ! Very functional and good looking . An outline of His boat would make a nice avatar .
