FOG DOG is arguably the most versatile Hinckley Talaria 40 on the water.  Her owner, an avid fisherman, wanted a great-looking, refined Downeast-style boat that would be as comfortable entertaining family and friends as it would be raising fish offshore.  In 2012, with the help of Rhode Island naval architect Mathew Smith, in person Volvo Penta engineering, and Hank Hinckley, he set out to transform a well-loved T40 by replacing the standard jet propulsion system with the latest and greatest Volvo IPS drive propulsion system.  The result is a first of her kind transformation that tracks better, turns better, and has a more efficient midrange cruise than her jet-powered counterparts.  She can also dynamically position herself (GPS Lat/Long) in one spot at the push of a button, a feature not only handy around the docks, but also while waiting for bridges, or watching an up-wind mark rounding during a sailing race.  The further addition of outriggers (removable), rod holders, a baitwell, and a slightly modified cockpit allows for a level of refined fishability not found in many boats.


FOG DOG features the traditional Talaria 40 arraignment plan forward with a large V-berth forward followed by a generously sized head with stall shower to port and a galley to starboard.  Up a few steps into the pilothouse, the helm to starboard and nav area to port, both have freshly upholstered (2022) custom electric Stidd helm seats.  Aft are two curved settees, each with a varnished teak shelf rim outboard, the port seat features a removable table.  Optional/removable drop curtains separate the pilothouse from the large custom-configured cockpit.
