Further Comments

Blackwitch is a 1949 gaff-rigged sloop built at the Wilmington Boatworks after a Ralph Winslow design based on the Friendship sloops; these boats were originally exclusively built by the Morse boatyard. They were remarkable workboats, well suited for fishing the Maine coastal waters in all-weather. The design was later modified for a recreational use. Blackwitch is a wonderful showcase of a classic yacht that has been restored / rebuilt from stem to stern at the Spaulding Boat Center in Sausalito to high standards. All the planking below the water line is new as well as the decks and deck beams. This re-build is fairly recent (2008) and the boat has been meticulously maintained since. Recent Haulout: Bottom and Topsides painted: Yanmar Engine serviced: June 2017. She is built with Traditional carvel planking, Port Oxford cedar over hardwood frames; original frames 1¾” x ½” mostly all sistered with white oak 1½” x 1½”. Fir deck clamps, fir deck beams, floor timbers and keelson; oak horn timber and mahogany rudder. A new spruce mast has just been recently built by Bruce Tipton at the Spaulding Boat Center, stepped and rigged (2015).
