2014 Melonseed built by Brush Creek Yachts. It is a beautiful wooden boat that has fiberglass cloth inside and outside. It sails just like a Crawford Melonseed. The sail is on a halyard so it can be raised or lowered on the water. The boat is also designed to take a sliding seat for rowing. It does take slightly longer to set up than a Crawford Melonseed. I like the boat, but I want to trade up to a bigger boat. It is at a lake cottage in Lake of the Woods near Fredericksburg Virginia. I am a teacher from Pennsylvania, with summers off, which I spend at the cottage.
Price: Asking $6,995

The sail halyard and sprit snotter can be hoisted and tensioned from inside the cockpit. The sail is hoisted up on the mast in a track. The boat can be launched with sail down and then hoisted when underway or the sail can be brought down within seconds when required.
NOTE: that the boat will take slightly longer to rig than a Crawford Melonseed, because the sail is on a track with a halyard.
