A traditional New England design, originally used as a workboat for fishermen and lobstermen. It is a centerboard boat, which allows it to be fairly easily trailered. With the board up it only draws about 19″, making running aground a non-issue. Despite the lack of a fixed keel, it is very stable and seaworthy with a broad beam of 8′ 6″. This makes it roomy in the cockpit as well-you can comfortably fit 6 adults for a daysail. The mast is stepped very far forward, and there is just one gaff-rigged mainsail. This particular boat had a bowsprit added on and it can fly a small jib on it. This helps with the considerable weather helm.
The boat comes with a 1983 Yanmar 1GM10 1 cylinder Diesel engine. The hull was completely refurbished before the 2017 season. All of the paint was removed, the cracks were filled with west system and glass spheres, wet sanded and then painted with several coats of navy blue two-part epoxy marine paint.
The previous owner replaced the thermostat three years ago along with the fuel lift pump and secondary fuel filter housing. Battery was new two summers ago. Starter motor and solenoid were replaced 2006. Oil, cooling water (raw water) impeller, zincs changed every year. Fuel tank was scrubbed out a few years back and the cabin floor boards were refinished last winter. Located in Seattle, WA.
New cushions, main & 2 jibs, running lights, cabin lights, EZLD trailer.
