Simplicity and keeping things simple have been themes in my build for a while. I’ve found that simplifying is a good trend in lots of aspects of life… computer systems, "stuff around the house", all manner of things.

The Briney Bug is "Simplicity taken to the max". Trawlers and Trawlering has a nice little article with several pictures of this unique design.

The open pilothouse (no glass in the windows, etc.) make me think about my build and its status right now… maybe I should just leave it open? Nah…

Briney Bug, a 34-foot troller yacht designed and built by Rudy and Jill Sechez, has proven to be as dependable to cruise and live aboard as she was inexpensive to build.
