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

Paul Gartside-Designed

Pedalboat/Rowing Boat

(Could Be Electric

Launch, Or...?)

Our friend, neighbor and fellow Pocket Yachter Roger Beachy built this Gartside-designed 20-foot Pedalboat Camp Cruiser, and more recently converted it for sliding-seat rowing.

A new owner has multiple options: The boat can still be pedaled (Roger has the pedaling mechanism, and the propeller and shaft--which can be lifted up into the hull when beaching or trailering--is still in place.) The boat, very easily driven, is currently set up for sliding-seat rowing with 9-1/2-foot oars, but it could also be converted for electric power and/or for sail, since the design incorporates an off-center daggerboard casing that allows the board to be dropped through the bottom near the forward portside corner of the cockpit.

The boat is complete and ready for overnight adventures with oars and pedaling mechanism $3,200. The roadworthy trailer belongs to Marty Loken and might be available as an option--price and decision on selling to be determined.

The first hull built to Gartside’s unique design, BLUE SKIES, successfully completed an 18-month cruise, starting in Alberta, then pedaling down the Missouri and Mississippi rivers, across the Gulf Coast to Florida, up the Intercoastal Waterway, up the Hudson River to the St. Lawrence River, ending the journey in Nova Scotia.

Sleeping aboard is easy and surprisingly comfortable, since there’s a fair amount of room under the foredeck, accessed via the sliding companionway hatch. A splashboard provides privacy with ventilation, and Roger added a fold-down fabric dodger (shown in one of the photos) that allows the skipper to sit up in the companionway and remain protected from the elements when at anchor.

The hull is easily driven and tracks well. Lines running from the stern to the cockpit steer the kick-up rudder. The hull is strip-planked, glassed in and out, and has watertight compartments fore and aft. (See hatch over the stern section in one of the photos.)

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.

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.

Ron Mueller’s

Just Enuf  Catamaran

Is For Sale

Just Enuf is a 19’ power catamaran. It's ultra-light so it can be towed with any small SUV - no special tow vehicle needed. It's also very fuel efficient using just one gallon/hour at typical 10-12 knot cruising speeds. Being a catamaran, its a very confident and stable platform in difficult sea conditions. When it gets rough, simply go faster (up to 14 knots) directly into 2-3 foot chop.

See more in Small Boats Monthly, “Eco 5 Catamaran, A Catamaran for Cozy Cruising” or watch the Off Center Harbor eight minute video at (you may have to sign up for a free intro look?).

Everything is in excellent condition and ready to enjoy now. The 20-hp Yamaha is new with less then 100 hours - warranty thru 9/19. The ultra-lite aluminum trailer has been refurbished with new springs/axles/rollers. Just Enuf is a innovative French design, built in 2008 and available for $19,700 (reduced this week from $25,000).

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 $12,000

18-Foot Drake Raceboat

For Sale in Port

Townsend, w/Trailer

I’ve got one two many boats now, so I'm offering the Drake Race Boat that Oscar Lind and I built over the course of last winter.

This is one fast fixed-seat rower! Length is 18’ by about 4’ beam and only weighs a smidgen over 80 pounds.

Based on the Saint Lawrence River Skiff, this is an open-water rower that can stay out when the shells need to find shelter. This essentially unused boat comes with a new aluminum trailer and a set of also new 8’-3” spoon oars. Asking price is $5,800. Contact me at (360) 301-2291, or email
