I dunno about any rules about home pots being on water but many boats here are home ported in Calgary, Canmore, Edmonton etc - none of which are near navigable water.

FWIW,  I believe we're actually talking about two different issues. Boat licences (what most of us as recreational boaters have) vs Boat registration. Registration requires the display of boat name and home port, of which there are acceptable cities (see http://www.tc.gc.ca/eng/marinesafety/oep-vesselreg-registration-menu-2311.htm#ports ) whereas licensing only requires the number ("You must display the licence number on both sides of the bow, above the waterline, in block characters that are at least 7.5 centimetres (3 inches) high and in a colour that contrasts with the colour of the bow." http://www.tc.gc.ca/eng/marinesafety/debs-obs-paperwork-paperwork_boat_licence-3211.htm#g6 ) On the licensed boat you can add vessel name and whatever "home port" you like.

my 2 cents

So basically the home port designation is comical because it could be either or.

Hay! I've paddled around Canmore, there are some lovely rivers up there.

Sailing, not so much.

Around here we see a bunch of boats homeported in Colorado or South Dakota.

Pretty much the same in the US.  If the boat is registered in a state, you must display your state registration number; in my state, they couldn't care less if the boat's name or home port appears anywhere on the hull.  In fact, they don't care at all if the boat has a name.  If you choose to document your boat with the Coast Guard, then you have to have your boat name and home port on the hull (and you have to remove any state registration numbers; a boat cannot be state registered and Coast Guard documented.  One or the other).  I don't think there are any rules as to the home ports; the only restrictions I know of are that it has to be an actual city/town and state.  Maybe someone else knows if you can use landlocked places as a home port on a USCG documented vessel.  At my marina, there are lots of boats (state registered) that use landlocked towns (presumably where the owner lives) as the home port.  I don't like the way that looks, so I use the town where my marina is located as the home port.

Some states, including mine, require registration for documented vessels. It’s how they collect sales tax when a vessel changes hands, and local fees. My marina requires evidence of state registration for all vessels, documented or not. 

What you can’t do, as you note, is display the registration numbers on a documented vessel. Actually being state registered is fine with the Coast Guard, as is displaying registration stickers. Just no numbers, and no state titling, as the US documentation is your title.

That's a nice looking boat but

Fuel cans on the rail.

Tape measure on salon table.

Caulk and stuff in and around the cockpit.

Ziploc bag of something on cockpit bench

Coffee on the dive platform (an Admirable platform and ladder, btw)

Fender on forward deck.

8 photos and two do not show clutter that could have been quickly removed. The engine and the one in slings.

Could just be real busy too. I know that my boat pictures aren't the best but I just don't have the time to take better ones and it's kind of a small monthly budget item so there's a lot more pressing things on my plate. Wonder if this seller is in the same boat? Or maybe it's just a coldmolded boat owner thing?

It looks like they're recycling old photos to me, with the caulking the boat looks tarped and they were probably just taking a photo of the work they had finished. I agree it's lazy but sometimes you just try and include a few photos of hardware etc people have asked for.... then again maybe that's why my boat and this one haven't sold

Quite possibly. Presentation matters a bunch.

Can anyone explain the rationale behind the auxiliary rudders/daggerboards?

I understand the usefulness of using daggerboards to adjust the balance, but why add the complexity of using them for steering?

Alternatively, if you're using them for steering, why have a big heavy barndoor on a skeg on the centreline for the same function?

All looks a bit weird to me...

Built in 1986, it is in great condition, Diesel engine with very low hours.

Very low hours because being trapped in a metal box that size with a diesel engine can't be pleasant.

It's hard to find a boat that I can't see as useful, enjoyable, or both. That's one. I'm confused by it.

They needed some way to get in/out of harbor with no or adverse winds, and the law prohibited dredging under power.

I am very aware of the dredging regulations and its affect on Chesapeake oyster dredging:

https://govt.westlaw.com/mdc/Document/NE99154714C2711E6874EEF7972E9FF2E?viewType=FullText&originationContext=documenttoc&transitionType=CategoryPageItem&contextData=(sc.Default)

The dredging vessel is suppose to be solely sail driven, although a yawl boat (read, dinghy with a really big motor) can be hung on davits for days that power trawling is not allowed and used before and after trawling to push the sailing dredge from and to the home port.

I am especially impressed that the regulations specify the permitted weapons on board, as well as the maximum shot size (#1 shot, for those inquiring minds).

Oyster pirates beware:

I'm putting this here more for the ad than the boat. Most buy & sell ads are lacking a lot of essential information about the vessel, whereas this one tells you a story about it, gives you every last detail about the equipment and evens lists the seller's views of the pros and cons of the vessel. And he'll even deliver it and teach you to sail. This guy clearly loves his boat. Given the lavish description, the pictures are pretty lame and the happy faces for privacy are a bit creepy.

Ahhh....could be Ish. But "the Pope" did have a C&C 33 called "Vatican II". Might have sailed on it once & awhile in those days. Mike had a good relationship with Poncho as I think the boat had Sails by Watts if I recall and Poncho was Watts in Seattle. Mike left the area and opened a mountain bike shop in Maui I think. Came back and went to work Queenship or one of the yacht builders like that in the valley. It's just odd to see the name "Vatican II" on a 40. I saw him briefly having lunch at WVYC with Huntingford but that was 10 years ago or more.

One of my favs too.  Plus it’s a longtime freshwater boat that with a short three month season on Erie.  

Zero bids. You can get it for far less than $20k. But expect a big project.  It’s sat for many years (though the previous longtime owner kept it up pretty well)

Eagle Harbour YC members and did a column on Pacific Yachting in the days of parchment paper in the magazine. Cheeky bugger but funny. If he was working he would say: "What do want and kiss my ring!". Funny story at the 3/4 ton world's in Victoria in '78. He had arrived with a factory Buccaneer 335 (the Peterson design) and he leapt on to dock from Bellingham at RVicYC in starker's naked. Our boat/crew were an Eagle Harbour YC too so it didn't phases us that he didn't anything he didn't a stitch on as that's Mike. A little chin wag for a bit and he says: "Well - better get to phone and check in." So merrily heading to the phone on the dock at Royal Vic. Our skipper said: "Errr..Mike. Haven't you forgotten something?" He had to search his mind for a minute and said: "Oh - I guess I should put me shorts on?" Too funny. 

Royal Vic has never been a stuffy club but even there - there are limits!

I hope it doesn't need a lot of money to get back into good shape. Good article about those in the last issue of Old Boat.

Historical or Biographical of Boat Architect

BIOGRAPHY: George H. Wayland (1885-1947). George H. Wayland was educated at the University of Washington and began his professional career in the Seattle area. 

During World War I, he worked for the Emergency Fleet Corporation at shipyards in Seattle and Tacoma, where he rose to the position of assistant superintendent of the Tacoma yard. Following the War, Wayland joined the Seattle design firm of Lee & Brinton, and was instrumental in opening their San Francisco office. 

In 1926 he left the firm to begin a solo design practice. Over the next two decades, Wayland either worked with or did contract work for the following ship and boat building yards on the west coast: Colberg Boat Works (Stockton); Geo. C. Boardman Co. (San Francisco); H.R. Fish & Co.; Wayland for Haviside Company; J.H. Madden and Co.; Madden and Lewis (Sausalito); Nunes Bros.; and Rasmussen Boat Works.

Among the noted vessels designed by Wayland are Volante (1936, sloop), Tamalmar (1927, 57 foot schooner), Alotola (ex Water Wheel, 1927, 57 foot schooner), Lady Jo (1932, schooner), Altair (1927, ketch), Mary Beth (1927), Marquita (1929, motor yacht), Skeeter (1930), and Graemar (1940). During the 1930s, Wayland also completed a few commercial designs, including a 1937 design for a 45 foot wooden tow boat, Telco, which was built at the Sausalito yard of Madden and Lewis for Pacific Telephone and Telegraph Company. The Telco is a museum vessel at Hyde Street Pier, San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park (SAFR 20427).

George Wayland is particularly well remembered as the architect who redesigned John Alden's 1922 original Bird class design, which measured 29 feet. In 1926 the Bird Boat association paid Wayland $100 to redesign the Bird Boat, which resulted in the 25 foot Golden Gate Design Class One, otherwise known as the Baby Bird design.

According to Thomas Skahill, George Wayland was "something of an unsung master during his lifetime-his boat designs remain in high regard by the West Coast maritime community." He was an important mentor to noted Bay Area yacht designer and builder Myron Spaulding; Myron Spaulding collected and preserved this collection of George Wayland's naval architect.

KNARR SLOOP US124 , PIPER built by Borreson, Knarr #52, built in 1966, and won the 1966 World Championships in Copenhagen 1966. PIPER had a bottom job and service at the Spaulding Boatworks Sausalito 2017. Fresh paint and varnish, inside and out, and is in very good overall condition. Wooden mast in very good shape, newer rigging. Main and jib sails in very good shape, and full canvas boat cover. Was recently donated by owner of over 30 years to an educational sailing non-profit. Not a project boat. Looking for a wooden boat/ Knarr aficionado to take it the next 30 years. Would be hard to find a cleaner boat in this price range. $4,900.
