About this Sailboat:
She is planked with Canadian white pine over steam bent white oak frames. There is not one knot in the planking. The transom and trim are mahogany. The foredeck is ½ marine plywood and the after deck is ½ T & G red cedar. Both decks are covered with 12 oz. canvas imbedded in paint and painted over. The spars are made of Sitka spruce with white oak jaws, bright finished with coats of varnish. The boat is gaff rigged, sails are buff coloured Dacron with ash hoops and lacing on the booms. All fastenings are silicon bronze and all pulley blocks are bronze with ball bearings by J.M. Reineck & Son of Hull, Maine. The boat is equipped with a hand operated Gusher Whale Pump to empty the bilge of rain- water. Once the planking tightens up she takes on very little water. A set of oars are saddled under the benches port & starboard. A 6 ft. pike pole with a bronze head is also included. A custom built canvas cover as illustrated will protect your bright finish and sails from U.V. and rain water. Included in the price is a custom built trailer with 15 wheels, constructed to go anywhere. The plans call for a laminated plywood center board, but we substituted a ¼ steel plate.The boat has been stored outdoors since 2005 under a tarpaulin cover. The varnish is wearing in areas and should be touched up, and the hull should be resealed below the waterline. The asking price is $6000 or best offer, including the trailer.
If you are looking for a beautiful day sailer well constructed, a class boat that sails like a dream and reasonably priced, this is the boat for you.
