Dovekie 21, 1986

  • Hull #126.
  • $3800.
  • Located at Uriah AL near Mobile AL.

    If you have wanted a Dovekie and are ready to buy...this may be the boat for you. She is ready to trail and sail. If you want the perfect ultra shoal draft sailboat for this season's Florida 120 or Texas 200 give me a call.

    I just completed restoration of her spars. Spruce spars were stripped of hardware and old varnish. Mast restored with laminated fir/mahogany at upper shroud attachment point. Hole for shroud band oversized and epoxy filled and re-drilled to prevent future damage. All hardware re-bedded. Teak cleats replaced with custom Black Locust cleats. Seven coats of varnish re-applied. Standing rigging is in excellent condition with new dacron rope. Running rigging is in excellent condition with new mainsheet and snotter halyard.

  • Tanbark Sail in very good condition
  • Original Trailer in good shape with new tires and two new spare tires mounted on spare wheels
  • Factory fiberglass motor mount (strengthened beyond factory strength)
  • Back porch (dog house)
  • Tabernacle stepped tent frame
  • Canvas cockpit covers for trailering
  • Sunbrella bimini (PVC frame)
  • Two Shaw & Tenney Oars
  • Bronze Sculling Oarlock and Yuloh extension for an oar
  • Rowing Thwart
  • Porta-potti
  • Canvas bin & hatch covers
  • Fiberglass hatch covers for trailering/soft covers for sailing
  • Cedar Cockpit Grate
  • Sail furling handle
  • 13# Bruce Anchor with chain and rode
  • Swim ladder

  • LOA: 21' 5"
  • LWL: 19'
  • Beam: 6' 8"
  • Draft (min.): 4"
  • Draft (max.): 2' 6"
  • Sail Area: 143 sq. ft.
  • Weight (empty): 600lbs.

    This is a fun, versatile, inexpensive, easy to maintain, go anywhere sailboat that is ready to sail. In the two years I have owned it I used it to putter around the Tensaw River delta and I took one trip on the Erie Canal (NY State Barge Canal) under outboard power. Very easy to launch and rig. The boat sails "flat" on her flat bottom upwind so she is great for children or skittish adults who are uncomfortable heeling. Her low weight means she is miserly with fuel under power. The eastern red cedar grate I built for the cockpit keeps your sleeping bag off the deck keeping it dry.

  • I will deliver within 400 miles if needed if you buy the boat.

    Additional photos available upon request.
