Further Comments

"Flying Lady" was designed by Pete Culler for Bruce Northrop, who built her, as well as other Culler designs (including The Baltimore Clipper "Lizard King" - see "Pete Culler on Wooden Boats" pgs 366-371). This is the very boat featured in John Burke's book "Pete Culler's Boats" - it is the 1840 British Cutter. The rig was designed by the late Master Rigger Nick Benton. The interior was designed and built by the original owners, who cruised the Pacific for 11 years. She is built and equipped for cruisig. She comes with an astounding amount of gear. E-mail us for a full inventory! We have lived aboard for the last 5 years and had planned to go cruising this fall. Over those years, we have done numerous repairs, as well as regular maintainence work. Unforutnately, the Flying Lady is in need of a more work than we have the time and resources to do properly (due to Pete Culler's insistance on traditional galvanized fasteners). The overall structure is sound, but additional work cannot be deferred. This pedigreed work of art is looking for Pete Culler's number one fan. We know you're out there. Plese give us a call.
