For Sale in Port Townsend

Lynn Watson is reluctantly letting KATIE MAE go in order to fund construction of a new camp-cruising sailboat.

KATIE MAE was originally built by the Northwest School of Wooden Boatbuilding, to the lines of the 21’ Drascombe Petersboat, with a number of modifications to the hull and rig. Her design is inspired by the small open cruisers that sailed English coastal waters near the turn of the last century; see Albert Strange and George Holmes for the perfected forms of these boats.

KATIE is a gaff yawl, with the mainmast stepped in a tabernacle and a standing lug mizzen with a sprit boom. The cockpit has room to daysail six, and the cuddy cabin, with fitted mattresses, sleeps two in comfort. With the boom tent in place, the cockpit becomes a sheltered space for dining, lounging, and traveling under power. She sails well in 3-30 knots, and tacks in about 100 degrees. She’s easily trailered, easily singlehanded, beachable, and has proven dry and comfortable in all sea states she’s encountered so far. Her motion in a chop is especially agreeable for such a light boat.

Besides daysailing and racing in Port Townsend Bay, she has cruised the Salish Sea from Puget Sound to the Broughton Archipelago and the great inlets of Vancouver Island. She is welcomed and admired everywhere she goes.

She comes equipped with a 2 hp Honda outboard and an EZ Loader trailer. Price is a reasonable $12,000 for boat, motor and trailer--ready to cruise! Details, Lynn Watson by email at

Redesign of Original

Asa Thompson Skiff

For Sale With Trailer

Classic 12-foot flat-bottomed skiff made of yellow cedar planks, oak ribs, mahogany transom/seats and teak gunwale. All fasteners are copper or bronze. The planks are fastened with clench nails and the rails are fastened with copper rivets. Oars are 7 feet long, made from laminated spruce by Barkley Sound Oars in B.C.

The design by Asa Thomson is from the East Coast about 1910.  Wooden Boat magazine staff modified the design slightly; read about the history of the design and construction in WoodenBoat issue # 29, 1978.

Trailer is included and is fully functional road licensed. The boat weighs approximately 130 lbs. and should not be considered a cartopper. The seller home-built the skiff in 2004. The skiff has always been stored on a trailer fit to the hull, and garaged. Like-new condition requiring no repairs. Easy to launch and row, fun for family outings.

A very stable and pleasurable watercraft to be out on a lake just relaxing. Price is firm, $2,500.00. Contact seller Tracy McMahan by phone 425-772-2519.

Alberg Sea Sprite

23’ With Trailer

In Oregon - $5,000

Pocket Yachter Cliff Bisch is offering this nice Alberg Sea Sprite 23 on a solid galvanized trailer, with extended tongue to ease launching, for $5,000.

The boat needs deetails and some paint work, but it has a good mainsail, decent additional sails, and she was sailed last season. The design sleeps four, has a porta-potty but no cushions, and for an additional $1,000 will come with a just-broken-in Tohatsu 6 hp outboard with charging setup.

15' Sailing Washington County Peapod  

Price: $10,000.

Built in 2003, from the plans in Chapelle's American Small Sailing Craft, fig. 84; using white oak framing, and fir for planking, spars and oars.

This boat has workboat scantlings, and weighs 350 pounds, like a peapod should. So, you can stand on the rail and haul a lobster trap (or crab pot in our waters) without putting the rail underwater. And she doesn't need ballast to sail flat on her feet while clawing off a lee shore in a gale (second picture). All the seams were planed hollow, sealed, finished, and payed with bedding compound; so this boat has never leaked. She's finished with Deks Olje, because in addition to looking nice, it lasts a long time; and because the builder hates scraping and sanding varnish. She's always been stored indoors, so there's no rot; and was always covered on the highway, so no checking, warping, or opened seams.

Comes with a custom-fitted trailer, sail rig, two sets Culler oars, cotton fenders, sand anchor and rode. You can Google search "bryan peapod lizzie" for more pictures and info. Located in Jefferson, Oregon.   Contact Bryan Beachy, an Oregon Coots TSCA member, at (503) 400-1467.

1945 U.S. Navy-Built Monomoy Sailboat

Length: 26'

Draft: 20"

This boat was originally an open rowing and sailing vessel with a centerboard. She now has bilge keels and takes to the ground nicely. We regularly pull her up to the beach for picnics. She was converted and restored by the Northwest School of Wooden Boat Building and the Community Boat Project (Port Hadlock, WA), including the addition of a new deck and cabin. Cabin layout is completely open with flat sole. Camps four in the cabin comfortably and two in the cockpit with filler boards. Sails and rig are new.  Comes with both a Gunter main and a Bermudian main (some wear), new Spruce birdsmouth mast - 2016.  Anchor chain and rode, 9.9 four-stroke Yamaha outboard in a well, and possibly a dinghy included. Manageable safe sailor in great condition, used regularly, in the water ready to sail.

The boat’s shallow draft makes her easy to launch and haul on her trailer (included).

Asking price reduced to $9,750

16’ Whitehall

For Sale in Oak Harbor

Long and lean, Whitehall rowing boats are considered among the most refined of the 19th century, when many were used as waterborne taxis in East Coast harbors.

This 16-footer was built in 2002 at the Northwest School of Wooden Boatbuilding, under the leadership of instructor Dan Packard.

Her dimensions are 16’-1” LOA x 48-1/2” beam, and she draws 12” when loaded. Displacement is estimated at about 200 pounds, and she’s built with red cedar planking over oak ribs, with yellow cedar footboards. The boat has three rowing stations, two sets of adjustable stretchers, and her interior is protected with “boat sauce.”

The boat comes with two sets of modified Culler-type oars and a 2002 custom-fit Loadrite trailer. She’s had very little use, and is in excellent condition.

Replacement cost would be $20,000, but John and Claire Acord will let the boat and trailer go for $6,500. For details, contact Curtis Adams of Bristol Yachts Northwest at (360) 679-6779, or via email at

Tom Regan-Built

Arctic Tern

Reluctantly For Sale

Our friends David and Marian Bergey, who live in the Bellevue area, are letting their Oughtred-designed, Tom Regan-built Arctic Tern go, with EZ Loader trailer, beautiful cream-colored sails by Nathaniel Wilson of East Boothbay, Maine, and spoonblade oars.

The gunter rig allows stowage of all spars inside the boat, which was built in 2015 using 9mm Okoume marine-mahogany plywood.

Tom Regan, of Grapeview Point Boat Works, lengthened the original Arctic Tern design from 18’-2” to 19’-4”, to match the successful Ness class designed by Iain Oughtred.

The boat is in virtually new condition, and is available complete for $19,000.

For details, contact David Bergey by email at or call (425) 646-9037.

Nice Rowing/Sailing

Boat For Sale

In Port Townsend

Jim Gurney is letting this great rowing boat go with reluctance as full resources are needed for the completion of his SCAMP.

The 15-footer is a one-off design, inspired by the Iain Oughtred-designed Elf, a Norwegian Hardanger Faering-style boat, but also reminiscent of the CLC Skerry and Joel White Shearwater designs. It was designed and built by a boatbuilder in Bellingham.

The boat weighs in at only 80 pounds. It comes with handmade oars, a rudder, daggerboard and carbon freestanding mast, but no sail. 

The price is $1,500 -a good deal if you consider that a CLC Skerry kit costs $1,425 without paint, oars, rudder, daggerboard, mast...or of course construction of the boat.

Give Jim a call at 650-492-1606 if you have questions or would like to see the boat. The boat is located in Port Townsend near Jacob Miller and Discovery.
