Bolger Light Schooner, 25', 2002

I bought this boat to sail in the Texas 200 where she proved to be a fast and fun boat that took good care of her crew over the 200 plus miles of strong winds and choppy water.

  • She was one of the very few boats that made it to all the primary stops during this years event.

  • I made a few modifications to make the boat more suitable for a long trip through the the shallow Texas bays including:
  • A new kickup rudder with stout ash tiller and extension,
  • An oversized kickup lee board,
  • Extra reef points in the dacron fore and mainsails.
  • Widened the side decks on the aft cockpit for more comfortable seating and the ability to heel farther over without taking on water
  • Made a drop in board between the seats so we could sleep on deck.
  • Made covers for the front cockpit for gear storage
  • Ran lines aft to make sailing from the aft cockpit possible
  • Installed nav lights and ran wiring for cigarette outlet under port side deck battery compartment is in the bow - battery not included (I used the battery from my pick up)

    The hull is plywood with fiberglass sheathing on the outside of the hull.

  • It is a homebuilt boat, but wasn't built my me.
  • Finish is a rough work boat finish. Spars are unstayed wood.

    Comes with trailer.

    The Schooner has been sold to a fella in Midland thanks to Sailing Texas.
