Coquina has been sailed continuously every year. She usually winters in the water and is hauled only for maintenance. She's sea kindly - she's not a show boat. She'll sail herself in a steady breeze close hauled with no tiller lashing if her sails are balanced properly. I wooded the hull and mast in 2010 and fresh paint will go on bottom and topsides again this spring (2012.)The deck and cabin need paint. All hardware is the original Merriman bronze, including all winches. She was designed as a MORC (mini ocean racer/ cruiser) by Sparkman & Stephens and she's taken good care of this old sailor. With a little investment she'll sail beautifully for another 50 years.

26' Fay & Bowen, 1912

18'

This 26ft. special wide launch,hull #480 is one of the finest, if not the absolute best example of a restored Fay & Bowen that can be found today. Because this boat was originally a salt water verison, even though it never was in salt water, it was restored to those standards. This means that all the hardware is triple plated brass including the strut, rudder, skeg, prop and exhaust. The original engine was removed long ago and replaced with a 45 hp Grey marine 4 cylinder engine wnich was totally rebuilt. Because of this weight reduction the bow rides a little higher and dryer than with the original motor. Another improvment was the adding of a new aluminum gas tank built to the original shape and size but with baffles and a venting system that cannot be seen because it has been incorperated in with the bilge port. To further enhance the boats safety all the wiring connections have been soldered and grounded to make everything correspond to today's standards. One final addition were stainless steel lifting rings. This enables one to launch or cradle the boat without the use of straps, thus avoiding marring the finish on the sides. These lifting rings can only be seen with the removal of the floor boards so as not to detract from the original look of the boat. It is this attention to detail, from the seventeen coats of varnish to all the screws facing in the same direction that make this boat a great prize to any collection. A truly must see boat. JUST REDUCED!!

79' Danish Fishing Ketch, 1903

Purchased her and sailed her from Denmark to Vancouver Island, BC, Canada in 1978. Major rebuild and maintainance programs over the past 35 years of my owning her. Used for chartering coastal and offshore passages. Commercially fished salmon for 15 years on the BC Coast. Fish hold removed in 2004 and new salon installed in its place. Providence has been my way of life and she has always earned her keep. I have photos from the Maritime Museum in Denmark as well as a copy of her history since launching in 1903. I am closing in on 70 years of life and realise that Providence needs a younger person to take over and keep her on course as I have for the past 36 years.
