  • no thru hull fittings on boat below water line (except prop shaft) very simple engine but heavy for its 15 hp (500 lbs.).
  • These have a very good reputation and they keep on going and going.


  • Electrical panel is functioning but needs to be replaced and a new panel is included in the sale.
  • Bottom and Prop cleaned in 2016. Prop cleaned also October 2017. Both will probably need cleaning again and bottom should be painted next time it is out of water.

    There are literally hundreds of pics and documentation from previous owner which go thru the early construction modifications and the use of the boat. These will be forwarded to the new owner and the new owner will probably need them for presentations wherever he or she may sail as undoubtedly requests will be made and questions asked.

    Please Note

  • Boat currently in water and can remain in slip until you want to move it.
  • Have a very favorable rate which could be renegotiated. Can be sailed away after sea trials and few adjustments.
  • Also note that you do not need to do any major repairs or modifications to sail her away as she is.
  • A new bilge pump installed in 2017 is needed to be moved and fixed to a permanent location in the engine bay before getting ready to sail away after trials if I am not able to get to do this with previous owners help.

    Additional Info:

  • To get more ideas on how to do the interior and what colors you may want to use please look at the link below of a very similar boat that went on sale recently.
  • I have included the ornamental side wood for front and other extra wood to be used for the interior. Also I have included an extra sink.

    Let me know if an questions. More info More info

    Of note is that Daisy Mae has more battens in the sails than Dragon Lady and you can lay the masts down on Daisy Mae but doesn't look like you can on Dragon Lady and Daisy Mae also looks a bit less top heavy than Dragon Lady.

  • Ok sorry - no pirate included with Daisy Mae.

    Also previous owner is putting all the hundreds of pics he has on a thumb drive which I will pass on to new owner.

  • I will also check when previous owner is available for Q&A.
