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

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

Please Call Charlie Duerr at 360-301-9086 or email him at

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.

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

Early Full-Keel

Devlin Eider in

South Puget Sound

This 16’-5” Eider was built in 1981, making it one of the earlier examples of the Sam Devlin design, and she’s in excellent shape, since the boat has spent much of its life in dry storage. This full-keel version is easily launched and recovered with its single axle EZ-Loader galvanized trailer.

This able pocket cruiser was built to the same high standards expected with all Devlin-built craft.

The spritsail main, staysail and jib were built by Hasse and Petrich at the Port Townsend Sail Loft and are in excellent condition. Some paint catch-up is required, otherwise, this fun little boat is in fine shape. All painted surfaces are smooth and fair, with none of the surface checking sometimes associated with plywood construction. All-in-all, this is a well-built vessel, ideal for camp-cruising the Salish Sea.

Asking price for boat and trailer is $6,500.00 and there are titles for both.

The boat’s owner lives in Seattle, but it’s stored in Longbranch (South Puget Sound) and can be purchased by contacting Tom--who’s been storing the Eider and is selling the boat on behalf of the owner--at (253) 320-8929.
