Baay, 24 ft., Corinthian Yacht Club sloop, 1951
Classic mahogany-on-oak sloop, Rigel, CYC 5, 23’ 9” x 7 ‘ , steel centerboard, weight about 850 lbs. Boom rolls to roll up the foot of the mainsail for reefing to any degree.
Rigel was made by Baay, in Holland, and is a Corinthian Yacht Club sloop
Built 1951 Holland. Raced for a decade, stored for 40 years, sailed lazily the past 14, using her original cotton main, or her Ratsey and Lapthorne Dacron replacement, with a new working jib. She has a good 130% genoa, tracks. Wooden blocks. 5-part double-ended main sheet. Tiller-tamer. Original winches and other hardware newly nickel-plated.
Reglued and refinished mast, new 3/16”stainless rigging, all cracked frames repaired or sistered. She is original except for new deck canvas, new toerails and rubrails. Her brightwork, floorboards and seats have been stripped, restained and varnished.
I treat her underwater seams with Slick-Seam and a little cotton before launching, and after a day or two she leaks maybe a couple pails full a week when on a mooring. I give her a dose of sodium borate twice a year. She sails yearly into late October.
A-frame for mast raising makes it a one-person job. She comes with a good registered trailer and durable fitted winter cover by the Kover Klamp system. The bent-conduit frame stores in a small space and is color-coded for reassembly.
Loss of a partner with a mooring forces sale. If I had a place for her I would keep her
