First Knowledge

2012 Sometime

Saw this ad in UsedVictoria:

This 16 ft. hand crafted, ketch rigged sail boat is literally one of a kind. LOA 16 ft, beam 7.5 ft. with twin daggerboards. She was completed in 2001 and is a shallow draught boat, drawing approx 14 inches, excluding daggerboards. The hull is hard chined, made of plywood, epoxy resined and fibreglassed on both sides. Frames are of kiln-dried fir, decking of yellow cedar planking. Cabin of mahogany ply. All external surfaces are fibre-glassed.

Cabin with two bunks and cedar storage. Drawers for storage and small separate head with sink and toilet. Great weekend sailer for sheltered water. Includes Road Runner trailer and 5 HP Mercury outboard. Best suited for sheltered water. In very good condition. She is great fun and always the talk of the lake. Serious enquiries only.

With these photos:

I was very interested, but at the time the cost was out of my reach. i.e., price of the boat plus the cost of a place to keep her.
