This is a wonderful Phill Bolger designed day sailing gem that doubles as a camper/cruiser designed for very shallow - 4" - waters.
It features quaint traditional lee boards and a folding rudder blade made of solid teak.
Rigging: is a Marconi main sail with a sprit, and there is no jib which makes handling very easy and simple.
Trailer: tilts and is Cox brand, made of galvanized steel, light enough that can be towed behind an ordinary compact car.
See the Shallow Water Sailor's web site for more information on this model, made by Eddy & Duff near New Bedford.
This is a very light and very fast boat in a steady breeze. It tacks well into the wind, and it is easy enough to handle - I have sailed her for the past five years.
Engine: is a Mercury 3.5 two stroke, long shaft that is very reliable and economical; I will also include an identical spare engine hulk for parts donor.
I have many accessories to offer with the boat, including port-a-potty, ladder, cockpit tent enclosure for camping, and more.
This beautiful little boat has taken me to Martha's Vineyard, Newport and other prime sailing destinations in the Northeast. At the same time, she will venture into tidal marshes and other areas where just a sign of moisture is sufficient to allow exploration of remote coves inaccessible to everybody else.
This is the ultimate vehicle for a committed bird watchers and sailors who appreciate the basic joys of the sport in its purest form.
