Very Rare Find, great boat for the hobbyist who wants to take the good bones and finish her to be beautiful! This is your opportunity.
This unique fiberglass hull is a cutter style sailboat, built by the R. S. Dorris Boat Company. Robert S. Dorris was once Disney Land’s boat exhibit designer, and a Naval Engineer.
The sailboat has a roomy cockpit, and motor well. Fiberglass construction, and is hull #7.
The draft is 2 feet with a 2 foot drop center board, so it can be beached easily to play on the beach, if you’d like. Hull and decks painted within the last year.
She has flush over head system (no holding tank), galley, v-berth, lots of storage, motor well for an outboard. I have the mast & boom, they are not currently attached for easy of transport. I have raised the sails and refitted all the rigging. There are 2 sails and traveler line.
Outboard motor is a 1959 Evinrude Golden Jubilee, 5.5 HP. Comes with 3 gas tanks. I motor is well maintained, however the fuel lines need to be replaced as they have cracked.
Boat has not been registered as she was in storage for a while in Seattle. Brought her down to Texas to rebuild and have done most of the work, but am moving so do not have time to finish. Boat is not registered with the state of Texas and I have communicate from State of Washington that she has not been registered as far as their records go back. The trailer has a clean title with the state of Texas through August of 2021.
