Further Comments

SOLD! Thanks to Lady Ben!............ Nothing is forever. After over 35 years of ownership it is time to begin a search for someone else to own and enjoy the WHITE CAP. The WHITE CAP is a 33 foot Richardson Sedan Cruiser built in 1940 by the Richardson Boat Company in North Tonawanda, NY. She is made of wood; the only time proven boat building material known to man (or woman). Her hull was crafted with white oak steam bent frames carvel planked with cedar and fastened with Everdur bronze screws. Cabins are mahogany with canvas covered tongue and groove cedar cabin tops. She was the first Richardson model to feature crank operated windows in the salon. She is listed as Permanent Registry no. 1 with the Richardson Boat Owners Association, no. 65 with the Antique Boat Museum in Clayton, the WoodenBoat Registry, and also the Classic Boat Association. She is powered with a 4 cylinder 70 hp Westerbeke diesel that uses about a gallon an hour of fuel at a cruising speed of about eight knots. The galley has a stainless steel counter top and sink along with a three burner Shipmate propane stove with overhead oven. Refrigeration is provided by an efficient keel cooled 12 volt Fridge-O-Boat system installed in the original reinsulated ice box. Solar panels and additional batteries have also been installed which make the boat totally independent of shore power. She comfortably sleeps four with additional space for one (or two) more on the canvas enclosed back deck. The WHITE CAP has proven to be an economical, safe, comfortable, and reliable coastal cruiser. She is sound and attractive and draws attention wherever she goes. There is much more to list but not nearly enough space here. She is stored winters under cover in her own 16
