August 29 40' Whittholz Trawler graces the view from the deck.

Charlie Noble

Looked up from my desk today and saw this small custom trawler go by. Later I met up with the boat and its owners at the city basin and discovered it was the CHARLIE NOBLE, a Charles Whittholz design built in Reedville, Virginia in the 1970's. Note the painted trim and just enough exterior varnish on the rails. A proper little ship.
