    It’s the SIS W, I remember reading their “Log Book” entry on the Burger web site some time ago but it was Viking 58’s reference about wheel chair access that brought it back to my mind.

    I will have to pass on adding a new question but I am sure Viking 58 can help us out.

    Guys...

    I think the lack of participation might be the length of the thread. The number of guests following the Trivia Pursuit threads is declining. I'm guessing the majority of our readers don't have time to read through several hundred posts.

    Maybe it's time to lock it down and get focused on more informative... less trivial... type threads? I believe this is the kind of content that will make YF a more valuable resource... and hopefully draw in more people?

    Makes sense to me. It seems like the trivia thread had reduced itself to around 8 or a dozen members trying to stump each other. Time to spread out and move on.

    But then again, they could start from the most recent post and go from there...:rolleyes: And for those dozen or so of us, we're diehard trivia fans, well at least try to be...lol

    What is the origin of the name Moppie? The name given to new Bertram's.

    The name Moppie is not new to Bertram. There was a Moppie back in the 60's. I don't know where the name came from though.

    Moppie was Dick's wife.

    Correct!

    "It was named Moppie after Pauline's (Bertram) childhood nickname because of her mop of hair"

    a quote from a great book (page 19).

    The Legend of Bertram

    Countless models have been debuted with the Moppie name, the first was a wooden 31' deep vee built in 1960

    I had an unfair advantage on that question... Dick was a friend of the family. ;)

    Can someone take my place? I'm so far beyond tired I'm sleep walking. Have a sea trial in the AM and headed for bed now. Thanks!

    Thanks! It is a good looking boat, I have borrowed the pictures and put them together with a 20 Moppie we have for sale at present. They seems to have different hulls as well. Don´t know which one I prefer, perhaps the 20 Sportsman (centre console) would be my choice..

    I have always loved these 20-footers, and that one on Ebay looks pretty nice.... whish I had an extra 7k laying around to snap it up !

    The center console sportsman is my favorite, my grandfather had one in which he travelled with his wife from Virgin Gorda to Grenada and back in the early 70's... to me a real testament of the build quality of the Bertram, and the superiority of the Hunt hull.

    I think you are correct, good eye!

    I saw the Patriot yesterday morning in Boca Grande, FL

    Reference photos from the book The Feadship Story, that a great friend sent me.

    and even though the length doesn't match on the below vessel documentation, this has got to be it.
