Sail Handing and Equipment Comments

Classic Cutter rig with Yankee jib, self-tending staysail.  Has one full set of serviceable sails and a very large "Drifter" which I have only rigged once.  Presently down-rigged but was equipped with lazy jacks and jiffy reefs.  All sheets lead back to the cockpit through the dodger combing.  Halyards are on the mainmast.  Traditional rig with aggressive aspect ratio.

Cannot continue with restoration and ready to give her to someone that can. Letting her rot away would be a great loss, but not too late to save her.  845-247-7539 or email vmow@att.net.

Spars / brightwork other than mast recently re-finished with 2-part poly varnish.  50' Sitka Spruce box-beam mast is on the hard getting its 5 yr rework.

Further Comments

This boat was commissioned in 1938 as a high performance cruiser with the ease of a cutter rig and ample cabin space below.  I enjoyed her for many glorious sailing hours for almost a decade before travel and distance made it impossible to keep her up to my own standards.  Currently covered after wet winter storage in a slip at Green Point Landing on the Chesapeake.   The boat is in serious need of deck, topside and other repairs before she would be fit for much cruising again.  Could be a great liveaboard with very nice woodwork below along with all the basics.  Sales price was just reduced well over what the cost would be to repair and paint the boat.  First reasonable offer takes her, since I'm not able to make the trip south to tend her enough anymore.  She is a very special boat that carries so much of our nautical heritage in her bones.  Will consider any reasonable offer if you can carry on from where I've had to leave off.
