Ted Hermann Lazy Jack 32 Schooner ---- in good overall shape but needs new standing rigging to bring it to sailing shape. The motor is in very fine shape and the boat can be motored at present. All navigation lights are operable. Bottom paint is still in good shape and will be good for at least one more season.
*** If you don't know much about working on boats, and don't have money to pay someone else to do it-- save yourself some time and read no further! This is a great boat, but it is a fixer-upper, not for the novice!***
The boat took damage during hurricane Harvey in 2017, here is a list of things that could be fixed to bring it to pre-Harvey condition:
Pro-Furl roller-furler, segmented aluminum extrusions, >>bent at the lowest section (nearest the bow). Could just remove the roller-furler and use a regular hank-on sail, or order a new segment from Pro-Furl
Missing the headsail
Clubfoot jib boom is ok, but the eyebolt securing it to the bowsprit is broken off and will need to be extracted and replaced.
Gaff-rigged mizzen mast is ok, along with the sail. Mainsail is ok but the sail cover is torn and covered with a tarp
2 anchor rollers were attached to bowsprit-- stbd side broke off at the weld seam. Could be welded back, the broken-off piece in question is in the lazarette
Stbd side lifeline stanchions are mostly bent at the stanchion base and on most of them there is a little bit of deck damage. Easy fiberglass repair on these, and will need new stanchion bases (the vertical tubes are ok and lifeline as well). The A-shaped stanchion at the gate, aft, was torn out completely and there is a hole that is covered temporarily with a piece of aluminum. All these areas are sealed with silicone for easy removal and final repair. -- Port side lifelines are ok, no problems.
Mainmast sheared off at the spreaders-- clean break so the mast is a fine candidate for repair by sleeving. The sheared-off section is secured on deck. Asa temporary measure the shortened mainmast has been fitted with an anchor light and Shakespeare Squatty Body VHF antenna, and to reach the top of this shhortened mast is easy with the lashed on steps.
The boat was recently fitted with a nice teak and chrome stainless rub rail; it got battered a little by the storm but is in overall decent shape and is fixable with minimal effort
(partial) List of Included Equipment
Lofrans Royal mechanical windlass
Lewmar CQR anchor, 20-lb
Lewmar CQR anchor, 35-lb
240 ft 5/8" anchor line + 25 ft G4 galvanized chain
Freshwater system with 2 deck fills bow and midships. The bow tank is bladder type, midships is poly box-type. Approximately 60 gallons total. Diaphragm pump stbd side under galley area, Whale manual pump next to galley sink
Raritan saltwater flush marine head
Spacious icebox- does not have compressor kit so it is an old-style icebox at present
Si-Tex MDS 1 radar
Si-Tex SNS-700 chartplotter/ GPS
Charles CI-1220A battery charger
2x Interstate Group 24 batteries, engine start bank. 2x Interstate Group 24 batteries, house bank
Icom IC-M302 VHF radio. The radio is good and was working fine with the temporary antenna system, but developed an issue just before the boat went up for sale-- believe it is either the push on connectors in the cabin, or possibly at the (shortened) main-mast head. Either way not a difficult fix
Perkins Perama M30 3-cylinder diesel, running perfectly. The only issue is the Racor fuel filter/ water separator, it is rusting on the inside. A brand-new exact replacement Racor/ Parker 500MA filter/separator is on the boat ready to be installed. The secondary filter (on the engine) has been very recently changed. Complete oil change w/new filter as well.
Bronze 14"x7" 3-blade propeller. 1-1/4" shaft. The prop is enclosed by the full-keel/ rudder arrangement
Wheel steering with VERY sturdy worm gear arrangement. No cables.
2 molded-in diesel tanks port and stbd, total of 30 gals
2 mounted fire extinguishers, one in cabin just behind companionway ladder, one in portside cockpit locker
The Ted Hermann/ Ted Brewer team built only 36 of these boats to my knowledge.
The keel is a full type, with retractable centerboard which gives the boat a shoal draft of only 2'10" when retracted so this boat can go practically anywhere. Until the standing rigging is replaced the boat is movable by power only, however the Perkins 30-hp engine is in very fine condition and has never failed to start on the first try.
The worm-gear wheel steering is the envy of every sailor I've showed it to. All nav/running lights are working. Vintage Perko brass running lights give it that old-school touch. The electrical system in general is in first-rate condition.
As a former marine electrical tech--- I love it, especially how the main panel has a piano hinge that allows it to fold down (see pics). By the way, apologies that in some pics I have some personal things.
Also, the portlights are recently installed Beckson models and do NOT leak... the plastic behind the ports in the pics is there for privacy as I lived on board for awhile.
Exterior-- lots of teak, but the varnish has not been maintained, was wanting to go back to the natural look if I kept the boat. Interior- lots of mahogany. 2 large quarter-berths, spacious, bright and airy V-berth with 2 late model portlights, 2 vintage portlights (sealed shut w silicone due to a bit of leakage), and smoked deck hatch above.
Any questions call or txt Scott (owner). I am no longer in Rockport but have an agent there who will arrange showings.
SERIOUS INQUIRIES ONLY!!!!! Also, I will not be selling this boat to anyone who has no experience or boat knowledge. It's just too fine a boat to sell to a novice
