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

23-foot Sloop or Yawl, gaff rig

Featured in WoodenBoat Magazine, Vol. 1, N0. 2

Great project boat. All sails, bronze hardware and spars (except main mast).

Complete set of plans.

Cabin open, not finished.

No engine. Located in the Port Townsend area.

Price: $4,800 reduced to only $3,500 on March 18, 2018. Contact: Bill Tolf:, or cell 360-316-9161

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--Big Price Reduction 7-12-18

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 $4,999.

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.

Little-Used 40-Year-Old

Pelican For Sale in Oregon

My father finished this from a bare hull approximately 40 years ago. He was always more interested in tinkering with and reading about all things sailing than he was in actually being on the water. I have no memory of him actually sailing this boat, though I’m sure it must have happened once or twice many years ago. Sometime after completing this project his curiosity led him to buy an Ericsson 23, and the Pelican then began a 30+ year stint on the hard in my brother’s garage, never to see the light of day during that time.

Two years ago it became my time to store it near my hometown of Veneta, OR, very close to Fern Ridge Reservoir. I cleaned it up a bit, and to my great surprise, it was in quite remarkable shape.

Suffice to say, life intervened and my imagined returned to sailing did not fully materialize. So...she’s for sale.

Sails and rigging seem fully operational. Hull is solid and seaworthy. Much of the brightwork is in need of refinishing. Trailer is potentially serviceable, but desperately needs tires (they hold air, but don’t plan on going far). Wheel bearings have been ignored for a long time, too.

This is an unregistered boat.

Asking price is $1,900 obo. I can be reached at (541) 913-7570 or via email at

15’ Peapod: Ultimate Sail-and-Oar Cruiser, in PT

Dunlin is a lightweight, fast 15-foot cruising Peapod, fun to sail and row. Sails roll up around the mast for furling as well as reefing.  Almost infinite reefing; just add a few turns. Masts rotate easily and are carbon to save weight. Booms are aluminum and sails are custom made by local sail loft Northwest Sails. Six watertight compartments keep gear dry and provide floatation.

Water ballast steadies her in a breeze. Twin bilge boards are out of the way to allow for sleeping on the sole. (Bilge boards are asymetrical NACA foils.) Rudder can be raised and lowered from cockpit. Tiller connects to rudder via a quadrant. The hull is based on Howard Chapelle's beloved rowboat and is strip planked with a layer of fiberglass on both sides. Decks, seats and cockpit sole are plywood (epoxy and fiberglass); rails are teak.

Built by local designer and shipwright Kees Prins in 2016, who crafted this one-of-a-kind beauty for his own use.

The hull is 15’ by 4’-6.” Sail area is 75 sf, and total weight is 220 lbs.  Sleeping area is 2.5 by 7 feet! Water ballast 200 lbs. Comes with almost new Trailex aluminum trailer, hand pump, fenders, dock lines and full boat cover.

Price of the ready-to-cruise, one-of-a-kind package is $8,950, and the boat is located in Port Townsend. For details, contact Kees via email at

Chebacco 19 for Sale in Victoria: $21,000

Three Rivers is a cat-yawl based on noted designer Phil Bolger’s Chebacco design, lapstrake version. Built to high standards 11 years ago, her classic lines and detailed finishing are aesthetically pleasing and draw praise everywhere she goes. At 19’-8” and weighing 1,200 lbs (w/o batteries), she’s the perfect size for trailering and sailing in lakes and coastal waters. Rigged for single-handing, she can be rigged, launched, and sailed easily by one person. She is stable, roomy, and sails well. She has a large V-berth that’s finished to furniture-grade and is bright and airy, and can comfortably accommodate two adults. With the included custom cockpit enclosure, she can handle extended stay of a young family in all weathers. Her marine-plywood hull and decks are covered with fiberglass and require minimal maintenance, while her spars are made of high-grade Douglas fir and finished in premium varnish, preserving the wooden boat appearance. 

Auxiliary propulsion comes from a 8-hp Mercury 2-stroke outboard. She is also wired for an 24V electric outboard, which is connected to a bank of four deep cycle batteries and provide a reliable, quiet and pleasant drive for those windless days. The batteries also run a set of navigation lights, cabin reading lights, and charter plotter/tablet.

I sailed her extensively in lakes of all sizes in Ontario when I lived there. Then for several years she lived in covered storage while my wife and I lived and sailed on a larger sailboat in the Mediterranean. In 2014 we moved to Victoria, and we’ve had a wonderful time sailing her around the Gulf Islands. In 2017, on her 10 year anniversary, she was given a whole new coat of varnish on all her spars and trims, and new hull paint. The trailer and Mercury were re-conditioned. She also has a new boat cover.

Culler Good Little Skiff With Sailing Rig, Bellingham

Our friend Steve Clancy has a 14-foot Good Little Skiff for sale, with sailing rig but no trailer, for $800. The restored, ready-to-sail boat has riveted lapstrake planks, but when Steve Clancy got the boat the original cross-planked bottom was shot, so he replaced it with a two-layer marine-plywood bottom; slightly heavier but much stronger than the original. (For details on the design, see page 62 of Culler’s book, Skiffs & Schooners.) You can contact Steve at

20’ Chesapeake Crabbing Skiff Near Port Townsend -- Price


We love this boat for rowing or sailing, but something’s gotta give at the boat farm, and we’ve reluctatly decided to let the crabbing skiff go...perhaps along with a few that we can dedicate full attention and resources to restoration of Heather, the 16-foot Tim Nolan-designed motorsailer.

The Crabbing Skiff is a double-ended rowing/sailing sharpie to the original 1862 lines drawn by Howard Chapelle for his book, American Small Sailing Craft. While the photos show the boat with a single leg-o-mutton main, I’ve added a new club-footed jib and short bowsprit, to exactly match the 1862 rig.

This boat is built with marine plywood; it has a centerboard with barn-door rudder, and likes to be rowed with 7 to 7-1/2-foot oars. (No oars included, since they belong to another boat.)

The boat is on an extended-tongue EZ Loader galvanized trailer. She sails like a dream, is great for camp-cruising adventures, has extremely shallow draft with the board up, and is an altogether brilliant design.

Price with trailer and sailing rig is $2,350. Without trailer, $1,850. The boat is located on Marrowstone Island, a 25-minute drive from Port Townsend.

8’ Portage Bay Skiff

Tender - Only $475

I built this 50-pound Portage Bay Skiff dinghy three years ago, as a tender to the Eel canoe yawl I was restoring at the time. The dinghy has served well: it has skegs on the bottom (with half-oval brass runners so that you can drag it up and down ramps or beaches without damage to the hull), and is 4’ by 8’ overall, with foam-padded canvas gunwale guard to protect the dinghy and mothership.

The tender rows well, tows easily and is the ideal dinghy for a pocket-cruising sailboat. It’s ideal as a one-person boat, unless the passengers are small, or pets, or groceries.

Construction is 6mm Okoume marine-mahogany plywood with a 1/2-inch mahogany-ply transom. The boat fits easily in the back of any pickup truck.

$475; no oars. Contact Marty Loken via email at

17’ Boston Whitehall

Available in Bellingham

W/Sailing Rig, Trailer

This beauty was displayed at the recent Pocket Yacht Palooza, attracting a lot of attention.

Built in 1986 by Syd Wallace and the owner, it’s the classic Whitehall design with spritsail main and jib, multiple sets of Sitka Spruce spoonblade oars, full cover and new tires on the trailer.

Contact Bob Tull via email at or call 360-201-1935.

Price for the whole package is $7,500. See more photos on the Pocket Yachters Facebook page--the photo spread on the Palooza.

12’ Swampscott Dory

At Second Wave in

Gig Harbor - $2,500

Michael Nanfito has consigned his John Gardner-designed dory to the new Second Wave shop in Gig Harbor.

The design, otherwise known as a Chaisson Dory, was restored in 2011 at the Gig Harbor Boat Shop. Price is $2,500, and to learn more contact Gary Ford at 253-509-0798, or email  The address is 3720 Harborview Drive, Gig Harbor, WA 98332.

Welsford Penguin

Available in

Port Townsend

This is a like-new example of the John Welsford Penguin design, built in 2015 but not yet cruised. The boat is 21’ on deck with an 8’ beam and generous accommodations down below, including a queen-sized forepeak berth, nice galley area, virtually unused tanbark sails and solid, drive-anywhere trailer.

The boat belongs to Jackie Monies of Oklahoma, who showed it during the 2016 Wooden Boat Festival in Port Townsend but then had to return to Oklahoma. We moved the boat into dry storage in Port Townsend a year ago (one of the buildings at Jefferson Fairgrounds), but had to pull it out of storage recently to make room for the upcoming County Fair.

This is a rare opportunity for a great bargain on a virtually new, custom-built lapstrake cruiser, with tabernacle mast to make rigging and de-rigging easy, and a like-new four-stroke 6 hp Nissan outboard. Price for the package is $19,500...far less than the cost of materials, sails and trailer if you were to build a Penguin.

For details, contact Marty Loken via email at

The boat has just been listed with Rob Sanderson at Port Townsend Boat Company, and the listing includes lots of photos and a video tour. To see the boat, just call Rob at (360) 316-9370.
